Tigers' Justin Verlander: Can't secure postseason berth with dominant start

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(10/3/16) Verlander allowed just one run on six hits and a walk with eight strikeouts across seven strong innings Sunday versus the Braves. He was a tough-luck loser and fell to 16-9 to finish the season.

Verlander was called upon to start with a postseason berth on the line, and although he twirled another excellent outing, the sacrifice fly he allowed in the first stood up as the winning run in a pitchers' duel with Julio Teheran. Verlander enjoyed a return to form this season, as he compiled an impressive 3.04 ERA and 1.00 WHIP to go along with a 10.1 K:9 rate over 227.2 innings. Now 33 years old, Verlander will enter 2017 as a coveted fantasy asset after a couple of years in the wilderness.

Tigers' Justin Verlander: Sets new career high in Tuesday's win

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(9/27/16) Verlander (16-8) silenced the Indians for 7.2 innings, allowing just four hits and one walk while striking out 12 in Tuesday's victory.

Some might contribute Verlander's success Tuesday to the hangover the Indians were feeling following their division-clinching victory Monday. Such an assumption may be fair for a run-of-the-mill pitcher, but Verlander has been one of the most dominant arms in the game for more than a decade, and 2016 has been no different. Verlander's career has been drenched in HOF-worthy accolades (including the 2006 AL ROY, 2011 AL Cy Young and 2011 AL MVP), yet he was able to add another feat to his towering list of accomplishments with his latest performance. Verlander's 12 punchouts against the Indians marked the eighth time this year he's whiffed 10-plus batters in a start, a new career high for the 33-year-old. He's scheduled to start the season finale Sunday in Atlanta.

Tigers' Justin Verlander: Strikes out 11 en route to 15th win

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(9/23/16) Verlander set down 11 hitters on strikes while allowing two runs on four hits over six innings in Thursday's win over the Twins.

Verlander's 15th win of 2016 was actually his first in nearly a month, dating back to Aug. 26; the fault for that lies more with the Tigers' offense than with the 33-year-old fireballer. Indeed, despite having blown past his previous career high in homers allowed (24) with a whopping 30 this year, Verlander's had a great year by virtually every other metric. His strikeout rate has rebounded unbelievably from a disappointing past couple years -- in fact, his current 9.89 K/9 is the second-highest of his career. That's why even with all the long balls, he owns his best ERA (3.21) since 2012 and his best WHIP (1.01) since 2011.

Tigers' Justin Verlander: Masterful in seven-inning effort Saturday

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(9/17/16) Verlander didn't factor into the decision against the Indians on Saturday despite pitching seven innings of one-hit ball. He walked four and struck out seven.

The ace right-hander had some trouble with his control but was otherwise dominant, inducing 16 swinging strikes overall. Verlander was only touched up for a sixth-inning single by Jason Kipnis and bounced back from a five-inning loss against the Orioles in his last trip to the mound. While a complete lack of run support denied him any chance of victory, Verlander now has quality starts in 11 of his last 12 starts. He'll look to secure an eighth season with at least 15 wins when he takes on the Royals next Friday.

Tigers' Justin Verlander: Lasts just five innings in Sunday's loss

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(9/12/16) Verlander (14-8) lasted just five innings in Sunday's loss to the Orioles, giving up three runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out seven.

He needed 104 pitches to get through the outing. It was the first time since July 7 that Verlander had failed to give the Tigers at least six innings and it's no coincidence that he was 6-1 during that 11-start stretch. He'll look to rebound in another tough matchup Friday in Cleveland.
