Justin Verlander pitches well in win

Justin Verlander allowed three runs on four hits across seven innings in Detroit's 9-3 win over the Rangers on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Verlander was solid in this one, scattering the four hits over seven full while punching out five and walking one. The sole free pass was nice to see given the veteran's season line is marred by his outrageously high walk rate with 26 over just 55 1/3 innings. Even then, he pitches ahead of one of the more potent lineups, receiving plenty of run support which has helped him to a 4-3 record so far. He gets a road date with the Astros on Thursday.

Justin Verlander takes loss

Justin Verlander allowed four runs on five hits over six-plus innings in Sunday's 4-1 loss to the Angels.

Fantasy Impact

Verlander, now 3-3 on the season, was all over the place in this one, striking out seven but walking five. He also gave up a pair of solo bombs en route to the loss. The veteran hurler hasn't been as sharp as we've come to expect of him but he is still racking up strikeouts, now with 49 in 48 1/3 innings. He takes his 4.47 ERA and 1.43 WHIP into a road start against the Astros.

Justin Verlander strikes out on seven on Tuesday night

Justin Verlander notched a quality start on Tuesday night. Verlander threw six innings, allowing three earned runs. He struck-out seven, allowed seven hits, and issued three walks.

Fantasy Impact

Verlander is having a down year compared to the 2016 season. It was expected, since last year for Verlander was amazing. No need to worry if you own him. His numbers should even out as the season progresses.

Justin Verlander delivers quality start in win

Justin Verlander scattered seven hits over six innings allowing three earned runs while striking out seven in a victory Tuesday at Arizona.

Fantasy Impact

Verlander has now delivered three consecutive quality starts improving his record to 3-2 and lowering his ERA from 6.04 down to 4.25 in that span. His 42 strikeouts in 42 1/3 innings isn't too shabby, either and, a year after giving up 30 home runs, he's only given up three so far. Verlander looks dialed in so keep rolling him out there.

Justin Verlander pitches seven strong innings, wins on Tuesday

Justin Verlander (2-2) won on Tuesday against Cleveland, going seven innings while allowing two runs on four hits. He walked four and struck out five. 68 of his 118 pitches went for strikes.

Fantasy Impact

Pitch counts were again a bit of an issue, but he otherwise pitched well. Walks have been an issue for Verlander all season, and his 4.21 BB/9 would be the worst of his 13 year career. He's still a fantasy ace and should be started every time he pitches, but it would be wise to monitor him very closely from now on and perhaps entertain the idea of trading him. His next start will be Sunday against Oakland.
