Verlander (11-4) allowed two runs on four hits with one walk and seven strikeouts across six innings while earning a victory against the Rangers on Sunday.
It's no secret that Verlander's biggest problem this season has been tossing up homers, but he kept the ball in the park Sunday. It was the first outing for Verlander without allowing a home run since June 6. Despite the long ball, Verlander is still experiencing a great season with 11 wins, 2.98 ERA, 0.81 WHIP, .169 batting average against and 160 strikeouts in 132.2 innings. Verlander will face the Rangers again at home Friday.
Verlander (10-4) took the loss Friday as the Astros were downed 5-4 by the Angels, allowing four runs on seven hits -- including three home runs -- and a walk over seven innings while striking out six.
The 36-year-old is suddenly having major problems keeping the ball in the park. Verlander has been tagged for multiple homers in four of his last five starts, posting a 4.91 ERA over that stretch despite a strong 43:8 K:BB through 33 innings. His numbers on the season remain excellent, but look for the right-hander to try and make some adjustments over the All-Star break.
Verlander (10-3) picked up the win Sunday against the Yankees, allowing three runs on four hits and two walks in seven innings. He struck out nine.
Verlander was dialed in Sunday aside from a shaky fifth inning, during which he allowed a pair of singles before serving up a three-run homer to DJ LeMahieu. The veteran right-hander has struggled a bit to keep the ball in the yard this season, allowing 21 homers through 17 starts (1.65 HR/9), though he still owns an impressive 2.67 ERA, 0.75 WHIP and 142:22 K:BB across 114.2 innings. Verlander will look to keep things rolling in his next outing, which will come at home against the Mariners.
Verlander (9-3) took the loss Tuesday versus the Reds, surrendering four runs on six hits across seven innings. He struck out eight and walked one.
It's only the third time all season Verlander has given up more than three runs in a start, and it's also the third time he's allowed three home runs. The 36-year-old continues to mostly overwhelm hitters and has an impressive 2.59 ERA, 0.74 WHIP and 133:20 K:BB, but the 20 homers given up through 15 starts puts him on pace to crush his career-worst mark of 30. Next up for Verlander is an exciting matchup Sunday at Yankee Stadium.
Verlander compiled 15 strikeouts and allowed three runs on four hits and no walks through seven innings in a no-decision against the Brewers on Wednesday.
It's hard to be more dominant than Verlander was in this one, forcing 29 swinging strikes in the quality start. The odd part of the stat line comes from three solo home runs that put a small damper on an otherwise spectacular performance. The 36-year-old can give up the long ball on occasion as evidenced by a 1.5 HR/9, but he's having another stellar campaign with a 9-2 record, a 2.50 ERA and an 11.2 K/9. Verlander will look to keep rolling in his next start Tuesday against the Reds at Great American Ball Park.

The right-hander logged a sixth straight quality start but was forced to settle for a no-decision as the Astros needed 14 innings to finally claim the victory. Verlander is showing no signs of slowing down at age 36, as he's posting his customarily dominant numbers to the tune of a 2.40 ERA, a phenomenal 0.74 WHIP and a 110:19 K:BB over 93.2 innings.
Verlander (9-2) picked up the win in Saturday's 5-1 victory over the A's, giving up one run on four hits and two walks over eight innings while striking out eight.
A solo shot by Stephen Piscotty in the second inning was the only blemish on Verlander's night. The right-hander now has 11 quality starts on the year, including five straight, and he's in rarefied territory on the all-time strikeouts list -- Saturday's performance moved him past Cy Young into 21st place with 2,809 career K's. Up next on the list: Mike Mussina at 2,813 strikeouts and a spot in the top 20, a feat Verlander should achieve Thursday in Seattle.
Verlander (8-2) allowed three runs on six hits and struck out six over seven innings Sunday in a loss to the Red Sox.
Verlander turned in a quality start, but his offense was unable to get him off the hook for the loss. The right-hander yielded a run in the third, fourth and fifth innings prior to exiting with a two-run deficit.

Verland (7-1) allowed a run on two hits and two walks, striking out nine batters over seven innings to earn the win in Wednesday's 5-1 win over the Tigers.

Verlander has allowed one run or fewer in seven of his 10 starts, and he will look to continue his early-season success against the White Sox on Tuesday.
Verlander (6-1) struck out eight and picked up the win in Friday's 3-0 victory over the Rangers, scattering one hit and two walks over seven scoreless innings.
Only one Texas batter even reached second base all night -- Hunter Pence drew a walk and Nomar Mazara got hit by a pitch in the fourth inning with two outs -- in the closest thing the Rangers managed to a rally off Verlander. The right-hander will carry a 2.51 ERA and 68:14 K:BB through 57.1 innings into his next start Wednesday in Detroit.
Verlander (5-1) tossed 6.1 innings Sunday, allowing four runs on five hits and a walk while earning the victory over the Angels. He struck out seven batters.
The four runs he allowed all came off home runs, including two from Jonathan Lucroy. In 50.1 innings this season, he's already given up 10 long balls; he didn't allow his 10th homer in 2018 until late June. Verlander still sports a strong 2.86 ERA and 60:12 K:BB.

Still, he lowered his ERA to a terrific 2.45 in 44 innings alongside a 53:11 K:BB. His fastball velocity is down a touch this year, but he has the stuff to work around the slight dip. Verlander will look for his fifth win Sunday against the Angels.
Verlander (4-0) gave up one run on four hits with no walks while striking out eight through eight innings in a win over the Twins on Wednesday.
It was a terrific start for Verlander as he rode 13 swinging strikes to eight strikeouts and another victory. The 36-year-old has given up a home run in every start this season and has a ridiculous 16 percent HR/FB ratio. The right-hander has been dominant otherwise with a 2.61 ERA, 10.9 K/9 and 2.1 BB/9 through six starts. Verlander will look to stay hot in his next start Monday in Minnesota.
Verlander (3-0) picked up the win Friday, allowing one run on three hits and three walks over seven innings while striking out eight in a 7-2 victory over the Rangers.
The veteran ace was staked to a 3-0 lead before he even set foot on the mound, and Verlander never gave Texas a chance to get back into the game. He'll take a 3.00 ERA and dominant 38:9 K:BB through 30 innings into his next start Wednesday, at home against the Twins.
Verlander (2-0) picked up the win Saturday, allowing one run on two hits over six innings while striking out 11 in a 3-1 victory over the Mariners.
A Mitch Haniger solo shot in the fourth inning was the only blemish on Verlander's line, as he threw 76 of 105 pitches for strikes, including 16 swinging strikes. The right-hander now sports a 3.52 ERA and eye-popping 30:6 K:BB through 23 innings, and he'll look to keep rolling Friday on the road against the Rangers.
Verlander gave up three earned runs on seven hits over six innings in a no-decision against the Yankees on Monday, striking out six and walking two as the Astros eventually prevailed 4-3.
Verlander had a rough outing against the Rangers in his last start, and while he still wasn't quite back to his usual lights-out self in this one, he did manage to bounce back with a quality start as the Astros rallied for the victory. Verlander will take a 4.24 ERA, a 1.29 WHIP and a 19:6 K:BB into his next trip to the mound, which will come against the hot-hitting Mariners on Saturday.
Verlander allowed four earned runs on six hits and three walks while striking out four across four innings Tuesday against the Rangers. He did not factor into the decision.
Verlander had surprisingly spotty command, with his four walks representing his highest total in a regular-season game since July 8, 2017. Things unraveled for him in the fifth inning when he allowed the first four batters to reach base, resulting in two earned runs. It could have been even worse, as he left the game with runners on first and third but Will Harris worked out of the jam without allowing further damage. Verlander will look to bounce back in his next start, likely to come Monday against the Yankees.

Verlander put a nice cap on spring training, during which he posted a 2.60 ERA. He reported being out of sync earlier in the camp but found something by watching video Friday and made adjustments Saturday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports. The right-hander didn't get into detail but said the adjustment revolves around the way he's loading his hips. "I saw something I thought I could improve upon now," he said. "I think I told you guys how kind of off I was as I was trying to make some adjustments. I think that kind of led me down the path of where I'm at now. I was looking for some things. ... I'm pretty good intuitively listening to my body and it doesn't get much better than it does tonight for me with the feel I had." Verlander's next outing will come Opening Day, March 28, against the Rays.
