News: Verlander gave up two runs on eight hits and two walks with seven strikeouts in seven innings Tuesday against the White Sox, improving to 3-1. Impact: After giving up a solo home run to Jose Abreu in the first inning, Verlander was pretty stingy the rest of the way, despite allowing plenty of baserunners. He threw a season-high 119 pitches and struck out seven-plus for the third straight game. He'll have a favorable matchup in his next start Sunday in Minnesota.(RotoWire, )

News: Verlander (2-1) threw 113 pitches in just five innings Thursday, but earned the win against Cleveland, allowing three runs -- all unearned -- on six hits and four walks. He struck out seven. Impact: Verlander's got a very nice-looking 2.08 ERA this year despite having given up an unpleasant total of 35 baserunners in 26 innings -- a 1.35 WHIP. His four unearned runs are a big reason for that. Despite his decent-looking line, Verlander hasn't quite been himself in the early going.(RotoWire, )

News: Verlander had the first two hits of his career and pitched seven strong innings to lead the Detroit Tigers to a 6-2 victory over the San Diego Padres on Saturday night. Impact: Verlander, who came in 0 for 26 with 15 strikeouts, singled up the middle off Ian Kennedy in the second inning and had a base hit to right in the fourth, although he had to hustle to avoid being thrown out by Chris Denorfia. Verlander scored on Torii Hunter's two-run single in the fourth. Verlander (1-1, 2.57 ERA) allowed two runs and eight hits, struck out eight and walked one.(STATS, 3:37pm)

News: Verlander will start Thursday against the Indians rather than Friday against the Angels, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports. Impact: Rick Porcello was previously scheduled to start Thursday's game, but he'll slide back into the Anaheim series -- likely Saturday -- while Max Scherzer will presumably take the ball on regular rest Friday.(RotoWire, )

News: Verlander picked up his first win of the season Saturday, allowing two earned runs while fanning eight on eight hits in seven innings against the Padres. Impact: The veteran hurler even picked up the first two hits of his major league career in the win. It was nice to see him bump up his strikeout totals on the mound too, as he had just five combined in two starts prior to Saturday. He'll face the Angels on Friday in his next start.(RotoWire, )

News: Verlander suffered Sunday's 3-1 loss to the O's. Impact: Verlander gave up two runs on five hits and two walks over eight innings. He struck out three, moving past Tommy Bridges and into fourth place on the franchise's all-time list with 1,674 in his career, but isn't pleased with that part of his game after fanning just two in his first start. "You get a feel for strikeouts and my feel for those isn't there yet," Verlander said.(STATS, 3:33pm)
