Tigers | Justin Verlander ready for first start

Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander (groin) is expected to make his spring debut Thursday, March 6, after going through a 30-pitch bullpen Sunday, March 2. "I think the feeling from the get-go was that, because of the type of shape he kept himself in, this was a guy that might have the ability to be back in time to start the regular season," manager Brad Ausmus said. "It seems like he's on track for that right now."

Fantasy Tip: We had a feeling that Verlander would be fine for the start of the regular season. If he can avoid any setbacks, he should be just fine. Verlander remains a fantasy ace and shouldn't be dropped on your draft boards.
