Player Notes
Justin Verlander (triceps) has been ruled out for Tuesday's start against the Yankees.

Advice: It was the presumption after Verlander had to cut short a simulated game Wednesday due to fatigue. Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said that the right-hander had some "normal soreness" Thursday one day after the sim game. The next step for Verlander hasn't been determined yet. "We'll cross that when we get to it," Ausmus said when asked about a rehab assignment. Kyle Lobstein will get another start in Verlander's place.

Justin Verlander (triceps) said he cut his simulated game short on Wednesday due to fatigue.

Advice: He said his triceps never grabbed on him, but it felt a little "achy." Verlander added that he was able to throw all of his pitches over the 45-pitch sim game and said that his concern level was "lower" than it was before the session. That's all well and good, but his recovery from a strained right triceps seems to be moving along pretty slowly. Consider the right-hander out indefinitely.

Justin Verlander (triceps) only went three innings in a simulated game Wednesday.

Advice: He had been scheduled to go at least four, with the possibility of more, so this probably isn't a good sign. At the very least, Verlander almost surely won't rejoin the rotation early next week now. At the worst, he might have had another setback. The Tigers should provide an update on his status shortly.

Justin Verlander (triceps) could potentially rejoin the Tigers' rotation after his simulated game Wednesday.

Advice: Verlander is scheduled to go at least four innings, but the club could stretch him out further if he feels good. Manager Brad Ausmus isn't ruling out a rehab start, though. "If he only throws 60 pitches and he doesn't feel great, now it's tough to throw him into a major league game when he's got a 75-pitch count," Ausmus said. "We have to wait and see before any decision is made on that."

Justin Verlander (triceps) is scheduled to throw a simulated game on Wednesday in Pittsburgh.

Advice: Verlander threw 45 pitches in a bullpen session on Sunday and said that everything went great, so this is the next step in his recovery process. It's unclear if he would then be cleared to rejoin the Tigers rotation if Wednesday goes well or if he'll require a minor league rehab start first. Either way, fantasy owners in weekly formats shouldn't count on the right-hander next week.

Justin Verlander (triceps) threw 30 pitches off a mound on Friday and said afterwards that everything went well.

Advice: Verlander mixed in all of his pitches except for his curveball during the session. If everything feels good on Saturday, he'll throw a bullpen on Sunday. Barring any setbacks, he could then be cleared for a minor league rehab assignment before rejoining the Tigers rotation next weekend against the White Sox.

Justin Verlander (triceps) indicated that he felt great after Thursday's throwing session.

Advice: As long as he still feels good when he wakes on on Friday, he could throw a light bullpen session. The Tigers remain optimistic that he's going to miss just one start, and there's a chance that he rejoins the Tigers rotation next weekend. Fantasy owners may want to give him a start to ensure that he's right before inserting him back into lineups.

Justin Verlander (triceps) is expected to do some flat-ground throwing on Thursday.

Advice: Verlander has been ruled out for Sunday's start in Cleveland, but the Tigers hope he'll be ready to jump into the rotation on the next turn. He'll first have to show that he can throw on flat ground and off a mound without issue. The veteran right-hander is on the disabled list for the first time in his career with triceps tendinitis.

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said he's "extremely optimistic" that Justin Verlander (triceps) will be able to make his next start.

Advice: Verlander was placed on the disabled list Wednesday and will miss Sunday's outing in Cleveland, but it sounds like there's a good chance he'll be ready for his next turn after that. The right-hander long-tossed Tuesday with no issues and is slated to do it again on Thursday. The DL stint is Verlander's first, but the Tigers won't mind it so much if he only misses a little over a week of action. Kyle Lobstein is starting Sunday in Verlander's place.

Tigers placed RHP Justin Verlander on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 29, with a strained right triceps.

Advice: Verlander felt more soreness in his triceps in the last couple pitches of a bullpen session Sunday, necessitating the DL move. It's the first time in his career that the right-hander has landed on the disabled list. A timetable for Verlander isn't known at this point. Kyle Lobstein has been recalled and will start in Verlander's place on Sunday against the Indians.
