Justin Verlander next start has been pushed up to Thursday vs. the Indians.

Brad Ausmus like the match-up for Verlander against the Indians and Rick Porcello against the Angels so he'll push up Verlander and leave Max Scherzer starting on his normal rest. Verlander has a 2.96 ERA with an 82:20 K:BB over his last 11 starts (76 IP) against the Tribe. Granted Josh Hamilton is hurt, but if anyone should hate this switch, it's Rick Porcello owners as the right-hander has a 9.12 ERA in his last five starts against the Halos.ANALYST: Howard Bender Mobile App
