Detroit Tigers SP Shane Greene is the first pitcher to throw seven or more innings in each of his first three starts and allow one earned run or less since Jack Morris in 1984.
Fantasy Tip: Greene ($4,500, 9% of cap) has been a big surprise for the Tigers so far, and he should be in your lineup every start as long as things go as well as they have. He's worth the low salary.

Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander (triceps) will open the season on the disabled list for the first time in his career, but he's unlikely to miss much time, according to manager Brad Ausmus. The move will be backdated to March 28, and Ausmus is "optimistic" that Verlander can make a start in the sixth game of the season April 12 against the Cleveland Indians. SPs Anibal Sanchez and Shane Greene will now be moved up in the rotation.
Fantasy Tip: Verlander ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) was throwing very well before his last spring start was interrupted by right triceps tightness. There's a glimmer of hope for his fantasy owners if he can get past this setback, but it'd probably be wise to avoid him at FantasyScore his first time out against the Tribe.

New York Yankees SP Shane Greene allowed four hits and two walks while fanning nine in 7 1/3 shutout innings to beat the Baltimore Orioles Saturday, July 12.
Fantasy Tip: He was solid in his first start July 7, but his performance Saturday came out of nowhere. He's an AL-only add but put him on your mixed league watch lists.

New York Yankees SP Shane Greene will remain in the rotation, and SP Chase Whitley will move to the bullpen, according to manager Joe Girardi.
Fantasy Tip: AL-only players looking for a desperation add could look here, but there's not much to like for fantasy purposes.
