No drastic changes were planned, but ace Justin Verlander met with Detroit manager Brad Ausmus and pitching coach Jeff Jones to discuss possible remedies to his notable drop in velocity and his unseemly 4.98 ERA going into his Saturday start against the Indians.

Verlander, 31, was striking out only 6.4 batters per nine innings, well down from his 9.2 average over the previous five years. “It has to do with he’s not locating the ball,” Ausmus said. “But my feeling is, [his velocity] will creep back up.”
