Player Notes
Justin Verlander had the strikeout working in Thursday's 4-2 win over the Twins, fanning 11 while allowing two runs over six innings.

Advice: With the 11 strikeouts under his belt, Verlander has struck out double-digit batters in seven starts this season. The only real blemishes on his line came in the form of a pair of solo home runs (Juan Centeno, Byron Buxton). This has been a persistent issue for the veteran hurler, as he has now coughed up 30 long balls for the season. On the whole, though, Verlander has put forth a fine campaign. He will carry a 3.21 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 234/55 K/BB ratio (213 innings) into a home start against the Indians next time he toes the rubber.

Justin Verlander tossed seven scoreless innings but settled for a no-decision Saturday against the Indians.

Advice: Verlander gave up a lone single and walked four over his seven innings, striking out seven. Unfortunately for the right-hander, a plethora of Indians relievers combined to hold his team scoreless as well, denying him his 15th win of the year. Verlander remains 14-8 with a 3.22 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 223/53 K/BB ratio in 31 starts, and in a league where people are debating the merits of a reliever as a Cy Young candidate, the 33-year-old should be in the discussion as well. Verlander will next square off with the Royals on Friday.
