Justin Verlander throws “really good” bullpen session


Justin Verlander threw 45-pitch bullpen session Sunday and reported no problems with the triceps soreness that put him on the disabled list for the first time in his career.

Jason Beck of MLB.com reports that Verlander is now on track to pitch a simulated game Wednesday, at which point the Tigers will determine if he’s ready to come off the disabled list for their next homestand.

Left-hander Kyle Lobstein is filling in for Verlander, who described Sunday’s throwing session as “really good” and “about as well as I could’ve expected.”
