Tigers' Justin Verlander: Unravels after losing perfect game on bunt hit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Verlander struck out 11 Mariners over 5.2 innings while allowing three runs on four hits and a walk in a no-decision Wednesday.

That line doesn't properly reflect what happened in this outing. Verlander carried a perfect game into the sixth inning, lost it on Jarrod Dyson's bunt hit, and promptly fell apart, ultimately failing to escape the frame. Fortunately, he at least showed better control in this one after walking a dozen batters in his past three outings and 42 in 82 innings to start the year. Verlander's strikeout ability and history of dominance are tantalizing, but his decline in control has been a major liability, as it's resulted in hideous rate stats.

Tigers' Justin Verlander: Holds Rays to two runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Verlander allowed two runs on six hits and five walks while striking out six batters through seven innings during Thursday's win against Tampa Bay. He didn't factor into the decision.

Verlander has been excellent at home this season and has held opponents to just nine earned runs through 37 innings. However, his road struggles (7.22 ERA) have been a major blemish on his overall results. Verlander projects to make his next start against the Mariners at Safeco Park, and it might be wise to consider the options of benching him if the luxury exists.

Tigers' Justin Verlander: Start moved up one day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Verlander will make his next start Thursday against the Rays, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

Verlander was originally scheduled to start Friday, but he'll slide up a day to allow Michael Fulmer (shoulder) to move back to start Saturday. This puts the Tigers' ace in line to face Tampa Bay right-hander Alex Cobb.

Tigers' Justin Verlander: Goes five innings in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Verlander (4-4) allowed three runs on five hits and four walks while striking out three batters over five innings against the Red Sox on Saturday. He did not factor into the decision in the Tigers' 11-3 loss.

A groin issue cut Verlander's last outing short, and while he was cleared to return Saturday, it was more of the same from the veteran right-hander. He labored through a 39-pitch third inning and was chased after five as he was unable to put hitters away. "It seems to be the general theme this year," Verlander told Jason Beck of MLB.com. "I need to find a way to get guys to swing and miss or put it in play weakly. Fouling balls off right now, it's killing me. It's extending at-bats. Guys are finding a way to have 10-pitch at-bats, and then if they happen to get on, they're spoiling really good pitches."

Tigers' Justin Verlander: Expected to start Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Verlander (groin) is expected to take the mound for Saturday's contest against the Red Sox, Jon Morosi of Fox Sports reports.

Verlander and the Tigers have been optimistic that he will be set to pitch all week, and it now appears as though he will be good to go for Saturday's battle against Chris Sale and Boston. The right-hander threw a side session Thursday without suffering any setbacks, appearing ready for action after leaving Sunday's affair with tightness in his groin. If anything changes before game time Saturday, Drew VerHagen would likely be called upon in his stead.
