Tigers | Justin Verlander not worried

Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander (abdominal) said he expects to make five spring training starts and be ready for Opening Day after having surgery on his core muscle this offseason. He called his injury "a blessing in disguise." "My goal now is the start of the season. Whether that's Game 1, I don't know. But I intend on being ready," he said. Verlander injured himself doing squats in December, and he likely would have missed two months if it had happened during the season.
