Justin Verlander could miss the start of the season.
JV has pitched a huge amount of innings, at a huge taxing amount of innings on his arm , as one would be expect for a pitcher who touches 100-plus in the later innings. JV will still put up great numbers but unless you get great value on draft day you may want to consider avoiding drafting him.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Chad Smith has arrived in camp on Saturday.
Smith was just claimed off waivers from the Tigers on Thursday so he had a couple of days to get his things and head to the A's spring training facility. He's a long shot to make the 25-man roster, but if he can continue to post similar strikeout and walk rates that he did in Double and Triple-A last year, he could get a call-up at some point.
