  • Tigers to slow down Verlander's rehab plan

  • Fatigue ends Verlander's sim game early

    Justin Verlander threw 45 pitches over three innings in a simulated game Wednesday afternoon at PNC Park. What it means for his chances of pitching in an actual game soon remains to be seen.

Verlander said the session ended earlier due to shoulder fatigue, not pain.

  • Verlander progresses, not ready for sim game
