News: Verlander will start Game 2 of the ALDS against the Orioles on Friday, MLive.com reports. Impact: Max Scherzer was the obvious choice for the Game 1 nod, but manager Brad Ausmus said there were several internal discussions about whether to start Verlander or David Price in Game 2. The team ultimately settled on Verlander, who allowed just two earned runs with 10 strikeouts against no walks over 15.1 innings in his final two starts. Price is thus set to start Sunday's Game 3 at Comerica Park.(RotoWire, )

News: Verlander allowed just one run on seven hits, did not walk a batter and struck out four over 7.1 innings of a 10-1 win against the Royals on Friday night. Impact: It has certainly been a frustrating year for Verlander (14-12, 4.68 ERA) but with a huge weekend series that could decide the AL Central this weekend, he came up big. He suffered from a blister in his last outing, but showed no ill effects in this one. He'll attempt to keep everything going when he faces the White Sox at home next time out.(RotoWire, )

News: Verlander (blister) threw a bullpen session Tuesday, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports. Impact: Manager Brad Ausmus revealed that a blister contributed to Verlander's mediocre showing against Cleveland on Sunday (three earned runs over 5.2 innings), but said that he doesn't expect it to be an ongoing issue. Verlander expressed a similar sentiment, saying he is OK and on track to make his next scheduled start this weekend against Kansas City.(RotoWire, )
