by Igor Mello |

(4/15/15) Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander was unable to complete his simulated game Wednesday due to shoulder fatigue, reports

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

Tigers' Justin Verlander throws 45 pitches Wednesday

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

Verlander didn't show any discomfort during his outing, per 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.
