Verlander Saturday morning update: No update

Justin Verlander was an early arrival at the Tigers clubhouse Saturday morning, settled into his locker and checked in with head athletic trainer Kevin Rand. As of mid-morning, however, there was nothing official on his status.

“As of right now, I have no reason not to expect him to pitch in his next start,” manager Brad Ausmus said. “Of course, I also told you I don’t have any new information, so take that for what it’s worth.”

That can play both ways. The fact that there’s no new information suggests no new tests have been ordered. Indeed, Ausmus said there has been no MRI ordered as far as he knows. The flip side, of course, is that there’s no indication Verlander is feeling any better today than he did when he left the game Friday with tightness in his biceps triceps.

The Tigers are still classifying it as a cramp.
