DETROIT — The Detroit Tigers announced today that starting pitcher Justin Verlander underwent core muscle repair surgery this morning in Philadelphia.

“We fully anticipate Justin to participate in spring training and be in a position to compete at the beginning of the 2014 season,” said Tigers President, CEO and General Manger Dave Dombrowski in the official release.

Verlander suffered an injury while doing his offseason workouts near the end of December that led to the surgery.  Dr. William Meyers performed the surgery. He is the same doctor who performed Miguel Cabrera’s core muscle repair surgery.

Verlander will now begin a six-week rehab. Tigers pitchers and catchers are scheduled to report in Lakeland, Florida on February 14.
