— Player Notes
Advice: Verlander won't touch a baseball until he feels no soreness in his ailing triceps, which the team is hopeful could happen at some point next week. He's at least a month away from a return to the Tigers rotation.

Advice: Verlander has had trouble getting over the hump, battling fatigue in the triceps when he throws off a mound for too long. He will not resume throwing until the pain subsides, so the right-hander's timetable to totally up in the air at the moment. Kyle Lobstein will continue to fill his spot in the Tigers' rotation.

Advice: While there are currently no plans for the right-hander to undergo an MRI, you'd have to believe it's on the horizon. At this point, it appears that he's in for an extended absence and shouldn't be counted on to help fantasy owners anytime soon.

Advice: The Tigers are going to slow Verlander's rehab down, but he had been expected to play catch Sunday. No further tests are planned at the moment, but the right-hander has just had trouble with fatigue in his right triceps when he throws off a mound. Consider him out indefinitely.Rotoworld
Advice: Verlander isn't going to touch a baseball until Sunday as he continues to battle through a triceps injury. At this point, he's going to need at least one minor league rehab start, probably more. Fantasy owners shouldn't count on getting the right-hander active for another couple of weeks.Rotoworld
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.

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.

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.
