I wouldn't hop on Verlander as my ace next year (of course, I wouldn't have done it this year, either), but he could be the guy that gives you ace numbers for #2 (or maybe even #3... ) pitcher value.
ESPN.com's Jayson Stark reports a scout said Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander has regressed. "His stuff is now a grade below what it was. He's become a two-seam sinkerball pitcher. Where's the front-door hammer (curveball)? Where's that four-seam fastball he used to bang guys away with? I'm not seeing it. I'm seeing a lot of contact, and the hitters look way too comfortable," the scout said.
