Player Notes
Justin Verlander (shoulder) threw a successful 35-pitch bullpen session on Thursday morning.

Advice: Verlander then walked into the office of Tigers manager Brad Ausmus and got a high-five, signifying that he will indeed return to the starting rotation this Saturday against the Twins. Verlander owns a rough 4.76 ERA and 1.42 WHIP in 158 2/3 innings this season and is likely to remain a risky fantasy play down the stretch. He's been sidelined since August 11 due to shoulder inflammation.

Justin Verlander (shoulder) expects to start Saturday against the Twins.

Advice: Verlander played catch on flat ground Tuesday without issue and is scheduled to pitch a bullpen session on Thursday. The right-hander has been sidelined since last Monday due to inflammation in his throwing shoulder. He's not a very reliable fantasy option at this point, even against light-hitting Minnesota.

Justin Verlander (shoulder) threw off flat ground from 50 feet on Tuesday afternoon.

Advice: Verlander may be cleared to throw a bullpen session later this week if he wakes up Wednesday feeling fine. The right-hander is suffering from shoulder inflammation but has not yet been placed on the 15-day disabled list.

The Tigers are still discussing a treatment plan for Justin Verlander's right shoulder.

Advice: Verlander has already been ruled out for his next start, but an MRI showed no structural damage. The MRI is being sent to outside doctors for a second opinion, but Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said surgery is "not even being considered at this point." As it stands, Verlander appears likely to avoid the disabled list.

An MRI taken Tuesday on the sore right shoulder of Justin Verlander showed no structural damage.

Advice: Verlander is expected to avoid the disabled list. He was shelled for five runs -- four earned -- in one inning Monday by the Pirates and is now 10-11 on the season with a 4.76 ERA and 1.42 WHIP. The former ace will likely be in a bullpen role in the playoffs, if the Tigers make it.
