Tigers' Ausmus impressed with Justin Verlander's live session

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(3/1/15) After watching pitcher Justin Verlander pitch during a live batting practice session Sunday, Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said he's never seen Verlander throw better, reports MLB.com.

"That's the best I've seen [Verlander throw] off the mound, stuff-wise since I got this job," Ausmus said.

Tigers SP Justin Verlander not quite ready to change approach

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/18/15) Tigers starting pitcher Justin Verlander said he's not sure yet if it's time to change his approach after posting a 4.54 ERA in 2014.

"I think it's a little unfair to judge on last season," he said Wednesday, per MLive.com. "I think it's a different story if I go out there this year and it's the same thing. ... I'm not going to judge changing my entire career based on an injury that plagued me last year. I don't think that's the right way to approach things."

Verlander couldn't prepare for the 2014 season as he usually does last offseason since he was coming off core muscle surgery.

"A couple of my off-speed pitches -- my curveball and slider specifically -- against righties, neither one of those pitches were good at all last year," Verlander said. "They just didn't have the same bite. I've already seen a pretty dramatic difference in my curveball. I haven't thrown any sliders yet, but the curveball seems to be a lot better already than it was at any point last year."

Tigers' Justin Verlander receiving positive reports after latest session

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/18/15) Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander added 20 pounds of muscle in the offseason, and has been receiving positive reports from catcher James McCann after his latest bullpen session on Tuesday, reports the Detroit Free Press.

"All bullpen long, he was hitting his spots," McCann said. "I was very impressed. That's a really good sign three days before camp even starts."

Verlander will turn 32 in the next few days, and is seeking a bounce-back campaign. General manager Dave Dombrowski indicated the Tigers are expecting big things from Verlander in 2015 after he went 15-12 with a 4.54 ERA in 2014.

"I talked to some of the trainers that have been down here, and they say he's throwing very well," said pitching coach Jeff Jones, who also attended Verlander's session. "He's very optimistic. He looks good, and that's the thing. He put on some weight, some good, strong weight."

Tigers' Justin Verlander throwing bullpen sessions ahead of camp

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(2/14/15) Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander is already throwing two bullpen sessions a week in preparation for spring training. Which, for Verlander, is not all that uncommon. Except, last season, Verlander could not do so, because he was still recovering from a core muscle injury that required surgery.

"Last year I hadn't even picked up a ball at this point," he said Friday according to The Detroit News.

Verlander finished 2014 with a 15-12 record in 206 innings with a 4.54 ERA and 159 strikeouts.

Tigers' Dombrowski expecting 'real big season' for Justin Verlander

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/26/15) Tigers starting pitcher Justin Verlander said last week this is the best he's felt physically approaching the start of spring training in at least three years.

Apparently, the optimism doesn't end with Verlander. Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski indicated the Tigers are expecting big things from Verlander in 2015 after he posted a 4.54 ERA in 2014, failing to make the All-Star team for the first time in six seasons.

"Justin Verlander is as prime a pitcher as there is in the game of baseball," Dombrowski said, per the Detroit Free Press. "Last year, he was not the traditional Justin. But when you look at what he came back from with the surgery, I think he's going to go out and have a real big season for us."
