DETROIT TIGERS

Ricky Nolasco 0-0, 0.00 ERA

Nolasco's struggles last year are well-documented, as he posted a career worst 5.38 ERA in 27 starts in his first year with the Twins. But he came into Spring Training in better shape and the Twins are counting on a bounce-back year from him.

Anibal Sanchez 0-0 0.00 ERA

Sanchez was slated to start the third game of the season before Justin Verlander's triceps strain delayed his start. Sanchez had his own health issues last year, limiting him to 21 starts, but looked strong this spring.

If you use a web browser, you may wish to switch to "newest-first" sorting. Click "Settings" at the top of the page and then click "General Settings" (under the sub-heading "My Account"). Find "Thread Display Mode" and change it to "Linear - Newest First". You still won't be able to see pages other than the last, but at least you'll be able to follow the conversation somewhat and see your own posts.

If you have Tapatalk or are willing to install it, you'll be able to see all posts, regardless of whether you sort oldest-to-newest or newest-to-oldest. It's normal to get an error when posting through Tapatalk, but it's generally safe to disregard it—your message was probably posted anyway.

A few small showers early today, but supposed to clear up by 1.

7-2 Tigers.

I haven't seen the lineup but I bet Cabrera bats third. WTF Ausmus? Do you know what his OPS is? It's zero. ZEE-RO. And yet, mired in the deepest slump of his career, he's somehow still entitled to hit in the top four. I'd rather see a meritocracy here.

Justin Verlander is expected to throw in Detroit today, and Tigers will determine next steps from there.

Justin Verlander felt good throwing long toss on Tuesday and Brad Ausmus is "extremely optimistic" that he will make his next start.

So is this a case of uninformed media not understanding the whole "retro-active DL" thing? I didn't read any stories but based on headlines I was under the impression start on Sunday was in jeopardy.... now based on Morosi and Fenech it sounds better.

Nah sunday is scrubbed. By "next start" they mean the start after that.

Verlander can start as soon as Monday. He could also be held back as far as the 21st because of the off day.

Price would be in turn to start Thursday next week, but there is no game that day, so he has to start Friday's game. That would put sanchez on regular rest starting Saturday.

I could see them wanting to give everyone in the rotation an extra day off if possible. So I would think the earliest verlander starts is next Saturday, giving sanchez an extra day.

Regardless, after lobstein starts on Sunday, we wouldn't need a fifth starter again until the 21st. But we can't send him down and recall another player until the 15th or so.

I wonder if Matt Vasgersian is getting it on with Lauren Shehadi?

You got me on those names. I'm not even going to Google them.....

With a win today, the Tigers can take a 4 game lead over the Twins using Minny Math. You know, the math that says division games count double? ?

Verlander placed on 15 day DL. Something is weird. Lobstein to start.

Old news. The 15 days is retroactive. JV "feels good" and will likely only miss one start.

I'd need to see pics before I could form an educated opinion on the topic.

In all seriousness, Lauren Shehadi can rip a baseball. That adds a lot of points.

I love a girl who can handle a bat, namsayin?

She can smoke a ball with the best of them.

Just jacking dongs in the studio. What a fun job that must be.
