Verlander travelling with the Tigers

Detroit manager Brad Ausmus said today that Justin Verlander (15-day DL, triceps strain) would accompany the team on their 10-game road trip beginning Monday in Minnesota. "He'll go because he may be able to throw at some point on the trip," Ausmus said. There's still no timetable for his return, though.
