FANTASY PLAYER UPDATES & NEWS

Justin Verlander fell to 10-10 after allowing two runs (both solo home runs) on five hits and one walk with five strikeouts over seven innings against the Yankees Wednesday.

Both home runs came off the bat of hitters batting from the left side of the plate in Yankee Little League Stadium, so do not much weight into the fact JV served up a couple dingers Wednesday. What is more important fantasy wise is that Verlander is 1-1 with a 2.40 ERA and 10 strikeouts to just one walk over his past two starts (15 IP) and his next start will come against an Andrew McCutchen-less Pittsburg Pirates on Monday.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
