Tigers notes: Verlander can’t throw until he’s pain-free

“He can’t pick up a ball until he’s completely pain-free and no fluid in the area,” manager Brad Ausmus said.

And until the soreness in his strained right triceps subsides, Ausmus said, he will be sidelined. There is no timetable for him to throw a ball again.

The fluid in the area, Ausmus explained, is inflammation, which was found by an MRI last week.

“My understanding is that it wasn’t fully recovered which is why it became sore again,” Ausmus said. “We have to have him completely free of pain and inflammation because you don’t want to have a return to that scenario.”

Tigers put Justin Verlander on DL

Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander will start the season on the disabled list but likely won’t be out of action for long, manager Brad Ausmus said Thursday. Verlander, who had been scheduled to make his first start of the season Wednesday, has been dealing with a sore triceps and has been throwing lightly in an attempt to work out the tightness.

The 32-year-old Verlander, a six-time All-Star selection, went 15-12 last season with a 4.54 ERA and 159 strikeouts. Verlander is 28-24 in two seasons since starting a $180 million, seven-year contract, and he was slowed by core muscle surgery before the 2014 season.
