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

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10:48 am ET) 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."

Tigers' Verlander is feeling great physically as camp approaches

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/22/15) Tigers starting pitcher Justin Verlander said Thursday this is the best he's felt physically approaching the start of spring training in at least three years. Verlander dealt with some shoulder issues in 2014 after undergoing core muscle surgery near his left hip last offseason.

"I've added 20 pounds of muscle," he said, per the Detroit Free Press. "I busted my butt in the weight room. And my pitching motion already feels a lot more fluid now than it did a year ago. It was great having an uninterrupted offseason of training and conditioning. At this same time a year ago, I was barely a few days removed from having (core muscle) surgery."

Verlander knew he was going to face a challenging season in 2014 after he talked with Ian Kinsler and former teammate Torii Hunter, who both said it took them a full year to fully regain their lower-body strength after having similar procedures.

"I didn't want to use that as an excuse," Verlander said. "I didn't want to talk about it because there was nothing I could do about it. I just had to work through it and do the best that I could to get out there and pitch. But I was a twisted mess last season. I couldn't generate the power I needed from my hips and lower body. My strength doesn't come from my arm. But I've got no problem talking about it now because I know it's in the past."

Justin Verlander allows three runs in Game 2 no-decision

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/3/14) Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander didn't factor into the decision Friday, giving up three earned runs on six hits and one walk in five innings while striking out four in his team's 7-6 loss to the Orioles in Game 2 of the American League Division Series.

Verlander fell behind after surrendering a two-run home run in the third inning, but his offense delivered five runs in the top of the fourth inning to stake him to a 5-2 lead. He gave up just one more run on an RBI single in the fourth and left with the lead, but the rest of the damage came courtesy of the bullpen in the eighth inning. The Tigers head to Detroit down 2-0 needing a three-game winning streak to advance. Verlander isn't expected to get another start this round, though the team could alter its pitching schedule on the brink of elimination.

Max Scherzer to start ALDS opener for Tigers

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/30/14) Tigers manager Brad Ausmus announced Max Scherzer will start the first game of the AL Division Series. He will be followed by Justin Verlander, David Price and Rick Porcello in the rotation.

Justin Verlander continues heat-up with playoffs on horizon

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/24/14) Tigers right-hander Justin Verlander gave an encouraging effort Wednesday against the White Sox with a likely playoff appearance upcoming.

Verlander gave up one run on seven hits in eight innings to earn his 15th win. He walked none, fanned six and pitched shutout ball before an RBI triple by Dayan Viciedo in the sixth tied the game. He has allowed two earned runs in his last 15 2/3 innings pitched.
