Here’s your shortest ever Walkoff Woodward recap in honor of Justin Verlander’s shortest career start!
I really don’t have much to say about this game. It isn’t worthy of it. It was clear from the start that Verlander had nothing, and then we later learned why.
Verlander had to come out after one inning due to “right shoulder soreness.” He’s headed back to Detroit for evaluation. On the post-game show, Ausmus said he didn’t want to risk further injury to Verlander although he said there wasn’t pain.
As for the rest of the game, the less said the better. You can probably guess what happened in the Kansas City/Oakland game from the title of this recap.
Tomorrow will be better. Or else.
