Tigers | Justin Verlander to have MRI Tuesday

Mon, 04 May 2015 14:47:14 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander (triceps) will have an MRI exam on his strained right triceps Tuesday, May 5.

Fantasy Tip: Verlander ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) is hoping he can resume throwing if his tests reveal positive results tomorrow. Either way, a return isn't right around the corner for Verlander, and he's not worth holding in shallow mixed leagues at this point. The longer he takes to return, the more value Kyle Lobstein ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) will have in all fantasy leagues.

Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander (triceps) will have an MRI next week, and the team will establish a revised timetable after the results are discovered.

Tigers | Another MRI for Justin Verlander

Thu, 30 Apr 2015 14:30:15 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander (triceps) played light toss again Thursday, April 30, and reported no discomfort, and he will have a third MRI in Chicago next week, according to manager Brad Ausmus.

Fantasy Tip: Don't expect anything from Verlander ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) for awhile. He is facing a long and arduous comeback from a triceps strain suffered in spring training, and Detroit doesn't appear to be in any hurry to bring him back anytime soon. Continue to stash Verlander in the majority of formats and check back for further updates on his recovery and return timeline.

Tigers | Justin Verlander cleared to throw

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 14:04:12 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander (triceps) was cleared by trainer Kevin Rand to do light catch of 20 throws at 60 feet.

Fantasy Tip: Verlander ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) is facing a very slow and arduous comeback from a triceps strain suffered in spring training, and the Tigers don't appear rushed to bring him back anytime soon. Continue stashing him in a DL slot in deep mixed and AL-only leagues, but don't expect him back soon. It would be wise to avoid him when he returns for his season debut at FantasyScore.

Tigers | Justin Verlander has second opinion

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 11:34:45 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander (triceps) had a second opinion on his triceps injury that yielded a similar diagnosis to the original description of a "strained right triceps muscle."

Fantasy Tip: Verlander ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) has really frustrated those that took a flyer on him in the later rounds of fantasy drafts in 2015. With no clear timetable in sight, there's no reason to hang onto him right now in shallow mixed leagues. You shouldn't trust him at FantasyScore initially when he makes his season debut, either.

Tigers | Justin Verlander not throwing

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 09:18:05 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander (triceps) will not start throwing until he is completely pain free with no fluid in his triceps, according to manager Brad Ausmus. Verlander will travel with the team in case he is ready to throw during the road trip.

Fantasy Tip: Verlander ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) has not thrown since he tried to throw a simulated game earlier in the month. Owners should monitor the situation to see when he will be able to return to the mound.

Tigers | Kyle Lobstein set for Tuesday

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 22:38:18 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Kyle Lobstein is the probable starter for Tuesday, April 21, against the New York Yankees. He remains in the rotation with SP Justin Verlander (triceps) sidelined.

Fantasy Tip: Lobstein beat the Indians in his first start, and is worth a flier in FantasyScore at just $3,000 (or 6.0% of cap) if you want to save money and load up on high-end hitters.

Tigers | Justin Verlander receives MRI results

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 13:37:14 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander (triceps) had an MRI exam Thursday, April 16, and the results confirmed he has a triceps strain, according to head athletic trainer Kevin Rand.

Fantasy Tip: Verlander is quickly losing his mixed league appeal, and in a lot of formats there might be better arms available on the waiver wire, at least in the short term. In deeper formats, owners should continue to stash and hope. Check back for updates on what is next for Verlander and for announcements on when he'll return to the mound.

Tigers | Justin Verlander suffers setback

Sat, 18 Apr 2015 11:41:05 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander (triceps) continued to be bothered by soreness Friday, April 17, two days after he had cut a simulated game short due to fatigue. However, if his condition improves, he could resume throwing as soon as Sunday, April 19.

Fantasy Tip: Verlander ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) has already been ruled out for the start against the New York Yankees Tuesday, April 21, and SP Kyle Lobstein ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) will start in his place. He should not be considered as a FantasyScore option until he has demonstrated that he is both healthy and effective.

Tigers | Justin Verlander won't start Tuesday

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 10:00:22 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander (triceps) won't make his season debut Tuesday, April 21, instead SP Kyle Lobstein will make his second start of the season. Verlander cut short his simulated game Wednesday, April 15.

Fantasy Tip: Verlander ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) has really come along slowly in his recovery from a strained triceps in his right arm. After such a long layoff from spring training, it isn't advised to use him in his season debut, whenever that may be. Lobstein ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) will be a midrange starting pitcher option on Tuesday against the New York Yankees at FantasyScore.
