Player Notes
Justin Verlander told reporters Monday that he's taking it "day to day" with his ailing triceps.

Advice: Verlander had to be pulled from a Grapefruit League start Friday due to discomfort in his throwing arm and he won't take his next turn in the Tigers' spring rotation on Thursday. This isn't believed to be a serious injury, but the veteran right-hander may have to open the 2015 regular season on the 15-day disabled list.

Justin Verlander did some light tossing on Sunday and reported improvement with his ailing right triceps.

Advice: He was lifted from an appearance Friday due to soreness in his triceps but is starting to feel a bit better. The Tigers don't appear overly concerned here, but Verlander could still potentially miss his first start of the season with Opening Day so close. It's not known yet whether he'll be able to make his next scheduled Grapefruit League start.

Justin Verlander (triceps) will do some light tossing in the next day or two to see how he feels.

Advice: Verlander was removed from Friday's game with triceps soreness, and the arm felt the same Saturday. It's still not a terribly worrisome ailment, but the timing isn't ideal with Opening Day so close. Still, he should be fine for the start of the season.

Justin Verlander indicated that his triceps soreness was the same on Saturday as it was on Friday.

Advice: The Tigers have yet to schedule an MRI, so they believe the issue is relatively minor and shouldn't impact his availability for the start of the regular season. They'll wait and see how he feels in a day or two before deciding when he'll throw next, but are optimistic that he'll make his scheduled start on Thursday.

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said Saturday that he's optimistic Justin Verlander's triceps cramp will not be a long-term issue.

Advice: Verlander left Friday's Grapefruit League start with what the team is calling a right triceps cramp. While it doesn't sound as though it's a serious issue, any arm trouble for a starting pitcher definitely concerning. As of now, he's still expected to make his final spring start next week.

Justin Verlander has been diagnosed with a right triceps cramp.

Advice: Verlander had to exit Friday's game with the ailment. Obviously any injury to a pitcher's arm is far from ideal, but the Tigers are convinced it's no big deal and expect the right-hander to be ready for his final spring training start next week. Verlander will be re-evaluated on Saturday.

Justin Verlander left Friday's game versus the Blue Jays with an apparent injury.

Advice: Verlander called out the trainer after having to cover first base on a play. It was rainy in Florida, so he probably slipped and tweaked something. The Tigers will provide an update on Verlander's status later Friday. He allowed one run over 2 2/3 innings before exiting.

Justin Verlander was pounded for three homers and five runs in 4 1/3 innings by the Nationals on Sunday.

Advice: Verlander said all of the right things afterwards, but hitters haven't had much trouble hitting his fastball his last two starts, with nine runs and five homers allowed in 8 1/3 innings. For all of the talk of him being healthier and able to put in a full offseason in the gym, there's nothing so far this spring that suggests he'll reemerge as an elite starter.
