Former Detroit Tigers ace Justin Verlander will make his first start at Comerica Park since being traded to the Houston Astros last year.
Verlander is slated to start Monday night against the Tigers with an early 6:10 p.m. start at Comerica Park.
In an Instagram post, Verlander said he made it here early on Sunday night, which is standard procedure for a starting pitcher.
"I'm really excited about tomorrow. I've heard a lot of people are excited as well in the area. It's my first time back in the city and I cannot wait to take the mound here at Comerica Park in front of the fans I have known and loved for so long," Verlander said.
