Justin Verlander allowed three runs on five hits and one walk while striking out seven batters over 7.2 innings against the Mariners on Friday.

Verlander was able to bounce back from a miserable outing his last time on the mound, improving to 6-4 with a 3.99 ERA and 1.44 WHIP through his first 12 starts. His major issue this season has been in the walk department, having allowed 31 walks over 79.0 innings while sporting a his lowest K/9 since 2006 (6.49 K/9). However, his offense is going to keep him in games as long as he pitches decent, so there is still plenty of fantasy value to be had with this former Cy Young Award winner. Verlander will be on the hunt for win No. 7 when he takes on the Blue Jays on Thursday.
