Tigers | Justin Verlander expected to make next start
Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander (quadriceps) carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning in his start Sunday, July 14, against the Texas Rangers. He eventually surrendered a two-out double to Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland, and left shortly thereafter due to tightness in his right quadriceps muscle. Verlander will travel to New York for this week's All-Star festivities, but he will not pitch in the game Tuesday, July 16, since he worked today. However, manager Jim Leyland has Verlander penciled in to start Saturday, July 20.
Fantasy Tip: All indications are that Verlander will not be forced to miss any time due to the injury, but stay tuned. With the All-Star break, an adjustment to the rotation could easily be made.
