Tigers' Justin Verlander scheduled for Tuesday simulated game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2015) Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander completed a bullpen session on Friday, and is scheduled for a simulated game Tuesday in Oakland, reports MLB.com.

Verlander has been sidelined all season because of a triceps injury. He is scheduled to start a minor-league rehab assignment at some point after the simulated game.

"We'll cross that bridge when we get there," manager Brad Ausmus said, per the Detroit Free Press.


Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander to throw bullpen session on Friday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2015) Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander is expected to throw a "lengthy" bullpen session on Friday, which will be very similar to a simulated game, according to MLB.com. 

Verlander is expected to throw 45-50 pitches of a warmup routine, cool down and then throw 15-20 pitches in the bullpen, according to manager Brad Ausmus.

"We just want to make sure that after he's thrown off the mound and he gets back, that he still feels OK," Ausmus said.

Verlander is yet to throw this season while battling a triceps injury.


Tigers' Rondon, Verlander report no issues during Monday's session


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/18/2015) Tigers pitchers Bruce Rondon and Justin Verlander conducted throwing sessions Monday and reported no problems, reports MLive.com.

Rondon is on the disabled list with bicipital tendinitis, but he was able to throw 25 pitches to live hitters Monday.

"He looked really good," manager Brad Ausmus said. "Again, with him, it's been the day after. We'll keep our fingers crossed that it has been the same as the recent track record where he's felt pretty good the next day. "We'll know more [Tuesday] but as far as the simulated, live BP, he looked strong, threw all of his pitches."

Meanwhile, Verlander has been sidelined for the entire season with a strain in his right triceps and he was able to throw a 45-pitch bullpen session Monday.

"Felt good, went through my long toss and then threw 45 off the mound," he said. "All really good effort. By far the most intense bullpen I've throw yet. It was all good. Again, wait until [Tuesday], see how it responds. If it's all good, move forward."

Verlander added that he will most likely throw one more bullpen session then pitch in a simulated game before beginning his rehab assignment.

"I fatigued a little bit [Monday], like normal fatigue," Verlander said. "But I haven't thrown that many pitches with that much effort in a long time in the bullpen. You throw 45 in a row with that much effort, you don't really practice for that."


Tigers P Justin Verlander, Bruce Rondon to throw bullpen Monday


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/17/2015) Tiger pitchers Justin Verlander (triceps) and Bruce Rondon (biceps) are both scheduled to throw bullpen sessions on Monday, with Verlander set to throw around 45 pitches and Rondon around 25, reports the Detroit Free Press.

Verlander has been on the disabled list all season with a right triceps strain while Rondon has been out since September 2013 following Tommy John surgery.

"If he comes out of that bullpen all right, the next step could possibly be a simulated game," manager Brad Ausmus said to MLive.com. "I don't know. I don't look past today. Well, I guess I don't look past tomorrow since I gave you tomorrow's stuff."

Both pitchers have thrown previous bullpen sessions as part of their rehab.

Tigers RHP Justin Verlander diagnosed again with muscle strain


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/27/2015) The second opinion on the injury plaguing Tigers right-hander Justin Verlander is similar to the first - a strained right triceps muscle, MLB Network has reported.

Verlander has yet to pitch this year, but is a possibility to do some throwing on the team's upcoming 10-game road trip. It remains to be seen if the latest diagnosis has an effect on those plans.

"I think we're on the back end of it," Verlander said to MLive.com. "Definitely moving in the right direction. The second MRI said we're moving in the right direction."

Verlander has been frustrated by not being able to pitch yet this season.

"It's weird," he said. "I talked with the trainers and they told me this is probably going to be hardest thing I've ever hard to do because this does not mesh well with my personality. I want to be going out there. And historically in the past I've pitched through some stuff. I've pitched through a lot of stuff in my career. This is just one of those things you can't try to force your way through."

Tigers' Justin Verlander's throwing session postponed


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2015) Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander won't throw light toss on Sunday, as originally planned, per MLive

Verlander is on the 15-day disabled list with a triceps injury. 

"I think we're going to wait until he really feels good," Tigers pitching coach Jeff Jones said late Sunday. "I don't think he felt bad (Sunday), but I think we're trying to wait until everything gets out of there, and then we'll go from there."

Verlander is not scheduled for an MRI, and the team said that there are no plans for any further tests on him. 

"The biggest thing is that we have to make sure everything is out of there before we go forward," Jones said. "He might've been able to pitch through it at the start of the season, but we didn't want to take that chance. I think if we would've taken that chance and he hurt it worse, we would've been kicking ourselves."


Justin Verlander has throwing session pushed back due to soreness


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

"We expected him to be sore the next day," manager Brad Ausmus said, per MLive.com. "But two days later, we expected he'd have recovered better.

"We're going to slow him down," Ausmus said. "He's a little more sore the second day than we'd planned, so we're going to slow him down a little bit."

Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander leaves simulated game with fatigue


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2015) Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander was unable to complete his simulated game Wednesday due to shoulder fatigue, reports MLive.com.

Verlander said his triceps were "achy" and dealt with some fatigue, but never felt it grab him. 

"I would say it's lower now," Verlander said of his concern level. He threw 45 pitches and was able to throw his full arsenal, but laid off his curveball in the third inning. 

Manager Brad Ausmus said he will see how Verlander feels and decide his next step Friday, but will likely need another rehab start before rejoining the club, according to MLB.com.


Tigers' Justin Verlander throws 45 pitches Wednesday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2015) Tigers starting pitcher Justin Verlander (triceps) threw 45 pitches in three innings during a simulated game Wednesday, according to MLB.com. 

Verlander didn't show any discomfort during his outing, per MLB.com. However, he didn't throw many curveballs in his final inning of work. He hurt his triceps throwing a curveball late in spring training, and he didn't resume throwing it until a bullpen session Sunday.

Verlander is a candidate to rejoin the rotation Tuesday against the Yankees. However, manager Brad Ausmus indicated if Verlander couldn't throw more than 60 pitches Wednesday, then it might not be time to bring him off the disabled list.

"If he only throws 60 pitches and he doesn't feel great and we have to take him out, well, now it's tough to throw him right into a major-league game when he's got a 75-pitch count," Ausmus said, per the Detroit Free Press.


Tigers' Justin Verlander could be a candidate to return Tuesday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2015) If Tigers starting pitcher Justin Verlander is able to throw more than 60 pitches during a simulated game Wednesday, he could be a candidate to return to the rotation Tuesday against the Yankees, according to the Detroit Free Press

Although, if he throws less than 60 pitches, it could be tough to start him with a 75-pitch limit, manager Brad Ausmus said. The Tigers are expected to make a decision on Verlander's status Thursday.

Verlander began the season on the 15-day disabled list due to a right triceps strain.
