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
Kenneth Faried will start Monday against the Bucks.
Faried should be started in all fantasy formats, now that he has been given the green light to start by both the coaching and medical staffs. He proved off the bench in his last outing that he can post fantasy worthy production in even limited minutes, so his prospects should be good as a starter on Monday night against the Bucks.

Robert Quinn is making progress from his back issue.
After missing Sunday's game, Quinn seems to be making steps toward's returning. Quinn is one of the game's elite pass rushers but has been slowed down by injuries all season long. Quinn is two years removed from a 19 sack season and the Rams are hoping he returns to that when he gets back on the field. Analysis: James Grande
