The team announced the move Tuesday and said that an MRI done on the calf revealed fascial disruption, but no muscle fiber disruption. Verlander’s stint on the injured list is retroactive to Monday. He was injured in his start Sunday while going to cover first base during a rundown in the third inning against the Orioles.
