The crowd at Comerica Park rose to its feet once again for Justin Verlander. This time, it wasn’t about his potential last start with the Tigers, but his latest one.
Two days after being blanked by the Pirates to begin the Interleague home-and-home series in Pittsburgh, the Tigers returned the favor at Comerica Park. Justin Verlander took a no-hit bid into the sixth before settling on eight innings of one-hit ball in a 10-0 victory on Wednesday night.
Tigers right-hander Justin Verlander will have the opportunity to continue his recent string of success when he faces Pirates right-hander Ivan Nova on Wednesday at Comerica Park.
Tigers right-hander Michael Fulmer said on Tuesday that the inflammation in his right elbow that landed him on the disabled list last week is gone. He’ll see a team doctor on Wednesday to make sure.
Jeimer Candelario’s first stint with the Tigers will most likely end up more like a cameo appearance. With shortstop Jose Iglesias returning from the bereavement list on Wednesday, Candelario was optioned back to Triple-A Toledo.

A week after Jeimer Candelario joined the Tigers’ organization from the Cubs, he’s set to make his debut with Detroit. The Tigers called up the corner infielder from Triple-A Toledo on Monday to fill a roster spot while shortstop Jose Iglesias is on the bereavement list.
