Justin Verlander struggled again on Sunday as he allowed nine runs (six earned) on 11 hits and three walks with just one strikeout over 5.1 innings in the loss to the Rangers.

Sunday marked the third consecutive start that JV has allowed at least five runs. Verlander, who has been one of the more dominating strikeout pitchers in the games over at least the last six years, has seen his strikeout rate plummet over his last three games where he has totaled just seven punch outs to nine walks in 17.1 innings pitched. The Tigers may want to consider skipping Verlander's next start as he is arguably the most overworked pitcher in all of baseball over the last six-plus seasons, which is scheduled for Friday in Seattle. As reasonable as that may sound it is highly unlikely to happen and since it is the lowly Mariners you may want to give JV one more shot to start for your fantasy team.
