Tigers might have to put Justin Verlander on DL
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus indicated Tuesday starting pitcher Justin Verlander might start the year on the disabled list after leaving his last spring start due to a right triceps cramp. 

"If we have to use it, we could," Ausmus said of placing Verlander on the disabled list, per MLive.com.

Verlander won't appear in another Grapefruit League game, but he could throw in a minor-league game Friday.

Although, if Verlander can't pitch Friday, then a disabled list stint could be coming. The Tigers would then backdate his time on the DL, meaning he could be available to make his season debut at the earliest April 12 at Cleveland.

"He says he feels a little bit better (Tuesday)," Ausmus said. "We'll see how he feels (Wednesday)."

There is no indication of a potential rotation replacement, if Verlander has to miss significant time. Verlander went 1-1 with a 5.63 ERA in five spring starts.

Tigers pitcher Joba Chamberlain not worried about spring struggles
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Tigers pitcher Joba Chamberlain hasn't exactly lit it up in spring training. In eight appearances, Chamberlain has posted an 8.22 ERA with just two strikeouts in 7 2/3 innings pitched. He and his manager Brad Ausmus aren't worried, reports MLB.com.

"I've said all along that spring training, with veteran players especially, I don't put a lot of stock in it," Ausmus said. "I would go more on Joba's performance last year as an indicator than on what happens in Spring Training. I think Joba's also a guy that pitches on the adrenaline of the situation. And there's not a lot of adrenaline in spring training games, even moreso if you've been in the big leagues for a few years."

Chamberlain is throwing a bit harder this spring than previous years.

"This isn't my first rodeo. I've been in this position," Chamberlain said. "You've got to know what you have to work on. It's a neverending battle. I don't know if I've ever seen anybody with a zero-zero ERA, so there's always something to work on."

Tigers pitcher Joe Nathan pitches fine after hangnail issue
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Tigers pitcher Joe Nathan felt just fine in his one scoreless inning of work Monday after dealing with a hang nail on his thumb a few days ago, reports MLB.com.

"He threw some good two-seam fastballs," manager Brad Ausmus said. "Really, the single was a swinging bunt. He did a good job."

Nathan has now tossed eight scoreless innings in 11 appearances this spring.

Tigers' Miguel Cabrera fine after fall at first base
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera toppled over Braves infielder Kelly Johnson while trying to make a play near first base Monday but got up immediately and was fine, MLB.com reports.

"You get concerned anytime you see something like that with Miggy or Victor [Martinez] this time of year," manager Brad Ausmus said. "You pause for a moment. … I mean, clearly Kelly's not trying to hurt Miggy in any way. He's trying to be safe at first. It's a little surprising that, as long as Kelly's been around, that he would do that in a spring training game, but I don't know what his situation is over with Atlanta. He may be trying to make the team, so it's certainly an understandable baseball play. You want to be safe."

Cabrera has been able to work at first base in recent games as he continues his return from ankle surgery. After going 1 for 3 Monday, the first baseman is 7 for 20 with two home runs this spring.
