Tigers' Justin Verlander: Gives up four runs in loss

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(5/15/17) Verlander (3-3) allowed four runs (all earned) over six innings and took the loss in Sunday's game against the Angels. He gave up five hits and five walks while striking out seven.

Verlander struggled with his control in this one, walking at least five batters in a game for the second time this season. The veteran's BB/9 is up to 4.66, which would be a career worst and is more than double his rate from 2016. The strikeouts are still there, and Verlander's average fastball is actually up a tick from 93.5 mph in 2016 to 94.8 this season. That suggests that if he can limit the walks moving forward, Verlander could approach his 3.04 ERA, 254 strikeouts and 16 wins from a season ago. He lines up to face the Rangers at home Saturday in his next start.

Tigers' Justin Verlander: Whiffs seven in Tuesday's win

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(5/10/17) Verlander (3-2) gave up three runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out seven over six innings in Tuesday's 7-3 win over the Diamondbacks.

He ran into only one bad stretch, as Arizona scored three times in the third inning, but otherwise it was smooth sailing for the Detroit ace. Verlander will look to continue chipping away at his 4.25 ERA and 1.39 WHIP in his next start Sunday on the road against the Angels.

Tigers' Justin Verlander: Beats Indians with seven strong innings

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(5/2/17) Verlander (2-2) allowed two runs on four hits and four walks across seven innings during Tuesday's win over the Indians. He struck out five.

Verlander loaded the bases and yielded a run on a wild pitch in the first, but he settled down and cruised through six more frames, allowing one more run in the sixth. He threw 118 pitches and induced 14 flyouts, which is a bit extreme, but he was able to keep them all in the yard. Verlander has now delivered back-to-back quality starts after two ugly outings in mid-April and will look to improve on his 4.21 ERA in Sunday's start against the Athletics.

Tigers' Justin Verlander: Tweaks in mechanics, approach paying off

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(4/28/17) Verlander credited a mechanical adjustment for his boost in velocity during his seven-inning, eight-strikeout shutout effort Thursday against the Mariners, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports. He's also ignoring his changeup.

Verlander wouldn't go into specifics of what he recently changed, but he said he watched video of how he pitched during his pre-injury seasons, and it seemed to help Thursday. "Even last start ... I knew pretty much right as soon as I started throwing that my arm felt cleaner," he said. MLB's Statcast data website, Baseball Savant, said 55 of the lanky hurler's 118 pitches came out at 95 mph or harder. He touched 98.5 mph twice and averaged 95.6 mph on his fastball, which he threw 70 times. The veteran also has thrown only 17 changeups in 525 total pitches this year and avoided the pitch altogether Thursday. Thursday's outing marked a promising sign for the ace's immediate future. Fantasy owners may have missed their window to buy low after Verlander's brief struggles, but it's still worth a try.

Tigers' Justin Verlander: Walks six Twins

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(4/22/17) Verlander (1-2) struck out four and gave up four runs on three hits and six walks over five innings in a 6-3 loss to the Twins on Friday.

He held Minnesota off the board for five innings before things completely unraveled in the sixth, as Verlander walked the first three batters he faced before giving up a two-run single to Robbie Grossman that chased him from the game. The 34-year-old has now given up 13 runs in his last two starts, bloating his ERA to 6.04 and his WHIP to 1.52, but his average fastball velocity remains strong at 94.4 mph and Verlander's track record suggests he'll right the ship and go on a dominant run eventually. His next start comes Thursday at home against the Mariners.
