Justin Verlander came out of a start the other day with what he called a cramp in his arm. Since then he has downplayed it considerably, saying it’s not a big deal. I wonder if it’s getting bigger:
When asked if Justin Verlander starting the season on the disabled list is an option, Brad Ausmus said, “If we had to use it, we could.”

There is still a chance he could pitch in a minor league game on Friday. If he does and if that goes well he’ll stay on schedule to start the season. But for now, you have to wonder if this is more serious than Verlander is letting on.
