Tigers’ Verlander Says He Has Thrown Off Mound

LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) — Detroit Tigers ace Justin Verlander says he threw about 20 pitches off a mound on Monday.

Verlander spoke with reporters Tuesday and said he didn’t have any pain in his groin and hip. The right-hander had surgery on Jan. 9.

The 30-year-old Verlander says he hurt his groin doing squats, and that he also had what was believed to be a pre-existing abdominal problem.

Verlander says he would like to pitch in five spring training games, if possible, but there is also a plan for if he is unable to do that.

Verlander went 13-12 with a 3.46 ERA last year for the AL Central champions.
