FANTASY PLAYER UPDATES & NEWS

Justin Verlander says he's starting Saturday after a successful bullpen session Tuesday.

As lousy a year as Verlander is having, he always seems to be strong against the Twins. He's got a 2.57 ERA against them this year, a 2.01 ERA over the previous three years against them and a career 1.41 ERA at Target Field. Granted, he's not the same pitcher he was in the past, but he does still seem to have the Twins number.ANALYST: Howard Bender
