Justin Verlander to start the first game of the doubleheader Friday. Manager Jim Leyland is not ready to announce starter for the second game.

Verlander struggled somewhat in his recent outing, giving up 4 earned runs and 2 HR in 7 innings. However, his K/9 rate is actually up slightly this year, and he is averaging close to 1 strikeout per inning. His ERA overall this year is also in line with his career averages.
