Justin Verlander: Exits With Thumb Issue

RotoWire.com Staff

Update: Verlander left Thursday's game against the Royals after seven innings with cracked skin on his right thumb.

Recommendation: Verlander was cruising through the first seven innings, but had already thrown 96 pitches in the outing when he was removed. The injury seems minor, given that he went fairly deep into the game, but we'll consider him day-to-day for now.
