Justin Verlander takes no-decision in quality start

Justin Verlander picked up the no-decision after surrendering only two runs across seven innings in Detroit's 4-3 loss to Kansas City.

Fantasy Impact

He also struck out eight. Verlander's name has been in the middle of a substantial amount of trade speculation as he's now delivered five quality starts in his past ten (and would have four more had he completed the sixth inning in them) and continues to pile up strikeouts. He's got only one win in that span and a rough 5-7 record but the Tigers haven't been winning a lot of games to begin with. He's been particularly susceptible to the long ball which has contributed to his spotty performance this year (and unsightly 4.54 ERA and 1.47 WHIP) but he still figures to be a significant acquisition for a contender making a run especially since he's still fanned 111 across 117 innings of work this year. A change of scenery might spark some vintage Verlander so he could make for a nice buy-low candidate if you can swing it.
