09:57 AM ET 04.27 | Justin Verlander appears on course to make his next start Tuesday against the Twins. He left Thursday's game after seven innings with cracked skin on his pitching thumb. "It's something he's dealt with in the past," Rand said, "and we should have no issue getting it back to where it needs to be."

He should set out the next game and let heal up.He could change his throwing motion and hurt his shoulder.

Probably cuz Ms. Upton isn't around to keep his digits moistened anymore?
