Description: Tigers starter Justin Verlander recieves no-decision Friday against the Orioles.
Insight: He pitched well enough to earn the win, going five innings, allowing three runs on six hits and one walk, while striking out four. Verlander left with a 5-3 lead, but Joba Chamberlain and Joakim Soria imploded in the eighth inning, resulting in a Baltimore comeback victory. Soria takes the loss for Detroit, putting the Tigers on the brink of elimination.
 
9/24/2014 6:06:00 PM
Description: Tigers starter Justin Verlander has returned to form.
Insight: He still has a 4.54 ERA on the year, but went eight innings on Wednesday against the White Sox, allowing only one run on seven hits, while striking out six. Verlander is now 15-12, and will be heading into postseason play on a high note.
 
8/30/2014 9:16:00 AM
Description: Tigers starter Justin Verlander allowed one run on nine hits over seven innings in a victory on Friday over the White Sox.
Insight: This is quite promising as Verlander looked like his old self on Friday. The only run he yielded was on an Adam Dunn sacrifice fly in the first inning. Overall, Verlander has still been very disappointing this year (12-11, 4.68 ERA, 1.45 WHIP), but he proved Friday he still has the potential to be dominant in any start.
 
8/23/2014 10:54:00 PM
Description: Tigers starter Justin Verlander made his return to the hill on Saturday. He pitched five and 2/3 innings, allowing four runs on eight hits, struck out six and walked three.
Insight: It's another very average start in a very average season for Justin Verlander. He is obviously a shell of his old self as his ERA this year (4.76) is over a run higher than his career ERA (3.52).
 
8/20/2014 4:48:00 PM
Description: Tigers right-hander Justin Verlander (shoulder) is expected to start Saturday against the Twins.
Insight: Verlander (10-11, 4.76 ERA, 1.42 WHIP) hasn't pitched since he left his start on Aug. 11 with shoulder inflammation. Fantasy owners can't rely on him at this point.
 
8/12/2014 4:48:00 PM
Description: Tigers right-hander Justin Verlander's MRI showed no structural damage, according to beat writer Chris Iott.
Insight: Verlander gave up five runs (four earned) on four hits and walked two in his one inning of work Monday night, before leaving with right shoulder soreness.
 
8/11/2014 8:33:00 PM
Description: Tigers right-hander Justin Verlander left Monday's game after one inning due to right shoulder soreness, according to Jason Beck of mlb.com.
Insight: Verlander gave up five runs (four earned) on four hits and walked two in his inning of work. He had been pitching better as of late, recording a 3.14 ERA in his last 28 2/3 innings, but still not striking out a lot of batters in that span (5.96 K/9). Ironically, he struck out the side Monday.
 
8/1/2014 10:06:00 PM
Description: Tigers right-hander Justin Verlander allowed two runs on eight hits, struck out five and walked none in eight innings Friday night against the Rockies.
Insight: It was Verlander's best start since April and just the second time all season he didn't walk anyone. The right-hander has thrown a quality start in six of his last eight turns and is 10-9 with a 4.66 ERA and a 1.42 WHIP. He's still not striking many batters out, however.
 
7/2/2014 5:16:00 PM
Description: Tigers right-hander Justin Verlander has thrown three straight quality starts and recorded a 20/2 K/BB over 19 innings in that span.
Insight: Verlander won his first game since May 30 on Wednesday against Oakland. He allowed nine hits (2 HR) but just two runs and zero walks in six innings. He's still trying to recover after posting a 7.83 ERA and a 1.85 WHIP in 43 2/3 innings from May 14 to June 16.
 
6/22/2014 9:37:00 AM
Description: Tigers right-hander Justin Verlander was much better Saturday against Cleveland. He had lost five of his previous six starts.
Insight: Verlander (6-7, 4.73 ERA) didn't factor in the decision but he pitched well, allowing just two runs (one earned) in seven innings. He tied a season-high by delivering eight strikeouts. Verlander's next outing is scheduled for Friday against Houston.
 
Cold6/16/2014 10:58:00 PM
Description: Detroit starter Justin Verlander labored through another tough outing Monday against the Royals, allowing 12 hits and seven earned runs in six innings.
Insight: He's now 2-5 with a 7.83 ERA over his last seven starts. The former MVP had trouble with his mechanics last season and it looks like he's fallen into a similar trap this season. We'll see if Verlander (6-7, 4.98 ERA) can turn things around next time out against Cleveland.
 
Cold6/5/2014 4:20:00 PM
Description: Tigers starter Justin Verlander was "outdueled" by J.A. Happ Thursday afternoon.
Insight: Happ didn't throw great, just well enough to beat the slumping Verlander. The Tigers' right-hander hasn't cracked the seven strikeout mark since April 12 and we have seen his ERA jump from 2.08 on April 17 to 4.19 after today's fiasco.
 
Cold5/25/2014 8:05:00 PM
Description: Tigers starter Justin Verlander was rocked again Sunday against the Rangers.
Insight: Fantasy owners who were concerned with Verlander's declining strikeout totals and sold high may have gotten out just in time. The right-hander has allowed 28 hits and 19 runs (16 earned) while posting a 7/9 K/BB over 17 1/3 innings his last three starts. He now has a 1.51 WHIP and a 4.04 ERA this season.
 
Cold5/20/2014 10:19:00 PM
Description: Tigers starter Justin Verlander has a 1.42 WHIP following Tuesday's poor start at Cleveland.
Insight: It might be time for fantasy owners to worry about Verlander. The right-hander's ERA is still a solid 3.55 even after he gave up five runs on 11 hits in six innings Tuesday, but he has a 6.68 K/9 and a 3.68 BB/9 in 66 innings this season.
 
5/14/2014 5:19:00 PM
Description: Tigers starter Justin Verlander gave up five earned runs on six hits with three walks in six innings Wednesday at Baltimore, but he still picked up his fifth win.
Insight: Detroit gave Verlander a 6-0 lead and the right-hander shut out the O's in the first four innings, but he gave up five runs in the fifth. The right-hander has a 3.15 ERA this season but it's clear he isn't the same pitcher he was in 2011-12. For the second straight season, his BB/9 is above 3.00, his WHIP is above 1.30 and his velocity is down. His K/9 is also just 7.05 this year, his lowest since he was a rookie in 2006.
 
5/4/2014 6:43:00 PM
Description: Tigers starter Justin Verlander fired seven innings, struck out seven and allowed three runs on four hits in Sunday's win at Kansas City.
Insight: Verlander has been a mixed bag this season. He's 4-1 with a 2.68 ERA and a 0.19 HR/9, but has a 7.28 K/9, a 3.64 BB/9 and a 1.32 WHIP.
 
4/22/2014 10:47:00 PM
Description: Tigers starter Justin Verlander allowed two runs on eight hits and had a 7/2 K/BB in Tuesday's win over the White Sox.
Insight: Verlander's K/9 is still a little low (7.36) and his WHIP is high (1.36), but he's 3-1 with a 2.18 ERA and has allowed only one homer in 33 innings.
 
4/6/2014 9:25:00 AM
Description: Tigers starter Justin Verlander has gone 8-1 with a 3.27 ERA and a 1.15 WHIP in his career against the Orioles, and he has shut down most of the hitters in the O's 2014 lineup.
Insight: Adam Jones (3-for-27), Nelson Cruz (2-for-20), Chris Davis (3-for-17), Nick Markakis (10-for-41) and Matt Wieters (3-for-19) all have struggled against Verlander. J.J. Hardy is the only Orioles regular who has had success against the Tigers right-hander, and he has gone 8-for-31 (.258) with three homers and six Ks. There are plenty of aces starting Sunday, but Verlander is as good of a choice as any of them.
 
3/11/2014 2:25:00 PM
Description: Tigers righthander Justin Verlander (core muscle surgery) made his Grapefruit League debut on Tuesday, facing 12 batters and yielding one hit.
Insight: Verlander walked two and struck out two. He should be ready for the start of the season and hopefully will rebound from last year's "mediocre-for-him" season.
 
2/24/2014 12:15:00 PM
Description: Tigers righthander Justin Verlander (core muscle surgery) threw a live batting practice session of around 50 pitches, according to Detroit beat writer Chris Iott.
Insight: He should throw another session Thursday and then be ready for Grapefruit league action. He should be ready for the start of the season and hopefully will rebound from last year's "mediocre-for-him" season.
