Justin Verlander to go to the disabled list for the first time in his career


The Tigers just announced that Justin Verlander will start the season on the disabled list. The culprit: triceps strain which had originally been thought of as a “cramp.” They still don’t think it’s terribly serious, however, and they’re saying that he should be good to go for an April 12 start.

This is Verlander’s first-ever trip to the disabled list. Had to happen eventually, I guess.
