Player Notes
Justin Verlander has reported to spring training at 237 pounds.

Advice: Verlander is listed at 225 pounds, but he was as light as 210 pounds after core muscle repair surgery last January and worked his way up to 220 pounds during the season. Fortunately, he had a healthy winter this time around and was able to focus more on his strength. The veteran right-hander is optimistic about his chances for a rebound after posting a 4.54 ERA across 206 innings last season.

Justin Verlander threw 60 pitches in a bullpen session Tuesday.

Advice: Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press notes that he "looked good." Verlander is already well ahead of where he was this time last year when he was just a month removed from core muscle repair surgery and hadn't even begun working out. Things were different for him this offseason, as he was able to pack on some muscle in hopes of a rebound. It's nice to hear, but his stock is still way down going into 2015.
