Justin Verlander gave up two runs in eight strong innings in Friday night's win over the Rockies.
The win brings Verlander's record to ten wins and nine losses this season. The former Cy Young award winner threw five strikeouts in eight innings. ANALYST:
Indians optioned P Josh Tomlin to Triple-A Columbus.
Tomlin has some upside if he can repeat his 8.13 K/9 from last season, but home runs will likely always be an issue. Tomlin has allowed 1.41 HR/9 over his big league career, far too high for him to be a consistent fantasy producer. He will almost certainly be in the rotation at some point and could even get the call up before Danny Salazar even though Salazar has far more upside for fantasy. Analysis: Steve Pimental
