UPDATES & NEWS
Justin Verlander allowed three runs on six hits and three walks while striking out just four over seven innings of the no-decision versus the White Sox on Tuesday.
The Tigers No. 1 starter did not have his best stuff on Tuesday night, failing to reach five strikeouts for the third through his first six starts of the season. He is now the owner of a 3-1 record with a 2.48 ERA and 1.35 WHIP following his no-decision in this contest, which is respectable, but not what we have come to love from Verlander to this point in his career. He will look to get back in the win column when he takes on Jason Vargas and the Royals on Sunday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Update: Corey Dickerson was removed from Saturday's game with a left quad injury.
While the news regarding Dickerson's plantar fasciitis was positive, he was removed after he fouled a ball off his back leg and is now day-to-day with what the team is calling a quad injury. When his leg appeared to be swollen, manager Walt Weiss opted to play it safe and remove Dickerson who had gone 0-for-3 in Saturday's game against the Giants. Consider him day-to-day for right now and figure he'll be a game-time decision for Sunday. Analysis: Howard Bender
