Justin Verlander allowed two runs (one earned) on four hits and a walk with eight strikeouts over eight innings of the no-decision Saturday.
Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said Justin Verlander had put in more work than normal since his last start, which paid off for at least one outing for the former CY Young and MVP who had allowed seven runs in each of his two previous starts. JV will look to build off of Saturday's dominating performance, (that helped proved he is not hurt), when he takes the mound again on Friday in Houston.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Wilson Ramos went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in the Nationals 2-1 win over the Cubs on Monday.
Ramos hit his third home run of the season on Monday to go with a .285 average, 13 runs and 21 RBI. Health has been Ramos’s biggest hindrance so far in his career as he has appeared in more than 100 games just once since he entered the league in 2010 but that has not stopped the production as he has hit 10+ home runs three times since 2011 and boasts a per 162 average of 22 home runs and 87 RBI which would make him one of the top offensive catchers in baseball. Ramos owners should keep their fingers crossed that this is the year he plays a full season as they will likely end up with one of the top catchers in fantasy. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba
