Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander will be the Opening Day starter "barring something unforeseen," Detroit manager Brad Ausmus said.

What It Means:

No huge surprise here as Verlander remains a face of the franchise even as he's faded from his prime. Should the ominous "unforeseen" not occur, this would mark the eighth time in his career he's pitched on Opening Day. He missed a large chunk of time at the open of the 2015 campaign, but if healthy this time around, Verlander could end up being a value in deep leagues. He'll turn 33 on February 20.

Last season, he held a 3.38 ERA, 1.09 WHIP, 21.12 percent strikeout rate and 5.98 percent walk rate across 133 1/3 innings (20 starts).
