Player Notes
Justin Verlander pitched eight innings of one-run ball but took a no-decision Wednesday versus the Twins.

Advice: Francisco Rodriguez surrendered three runs (one earned) in the ninth inning to give the Twins the game. Verlander did his part, yielding just two hits and two walks while striking out nine. The one run he gave up came on a first-inning solo shot by Joe Mauer. Verlander will carry a cool 3.74 ERA and 1.08 WHIP into his next start on the road against the Red Sox. He has a stellar 139/37 K/BB ratio in 132 1/3 innings this season.

Justin Verlander turned in an excellent outing to beat the Royals 4-2 on Friday, striking out 10 while allowing only two runs (one earned) in seven innings.

Advice: The dominant outing boosts his record to 9-6 with a 3.91 ERA in 124 1/3 innings. He has a 130/35 K/BB ratio. Despite no longer having elite velocity, his 9.41 K/9 is the second-best strikeout rate of his career. Verlander is not a perennial Cy Young contender anymore but he can still help his fantasy owners win.
