Justin Verlander will Start Season on DL

Detroit Tigers starter Justin Verlander will begin the season on the Disabled List due to sore triceps.

Verlander first experienced discomfort on Friday, which forced the former MVP and Cy Young winner to leave his start early. It will be the first time Verlander will be placed on the DL in his career.

He was scheduled to start the second game of the season behind David Price, but Anibal Sanchez and Shane Greene will each move up in the rotation.

If all goes to plan, Verlander will start the sixth game of the season, manager Brad Ausmus said. The DL stint will be backdated to March 28th.
