Verlander Leaves Game with Triceps Injury Robert Rogers/MLB Photos via Getty Images (DUNEDIN, Fla.) -- Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander left his spring training start against the Toronto Blue Jays Friday, with cramping in his right triceps.Despite leaving the game in the third inning, the former American League MVP doesn't seem too concerned about the injury. He cites not drinking enough water and a tweak in his mechanics as being possible reasons for the cramping."I don't think I'm injured," Verlander said. "The only concern I have is if it would linger. Just felt crampy."Verlander pitched 2 2/3 innings of one-hit ball before exiting."Not overly concerned," Tigers skipper Brad Ausmus said. "He said it felt like more of a cramp than a strain. It doesn't mean we're out of the woods. It's not as concerning of an area." Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

He has done a lot for the Tigers and this organization. But, I have to make a decision based on baseball and what is best for the 2015 Tigers."

ESPN: Red Sox Trade Yoenis Cespedes to Tigers for Rick Porcello

ESPN: Red Sox Trade Yoenis Cespedes to Tigers for Rick Porcello Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The Winter Meetings have been a hotbed of baseball activity and it continued Thursday morning as ESPN reports that the Boston Red Sox have agreed to send outfielder Yoenis Cespedes to the Detroit Tigers for starting pitcher Rick Porcello. In the deal, the Red Sox will also send pitcher Alex Wilson and another minor league pitcher. Cespedes' time in Boston was brief. He played 51 games for the Red Sox after he was the centerpiece of the deal that sent starting pitcher Jon Lester to the Oakland Athletics. Since coming to Major League Baseball in 2012, Cespedes has lived up to the billing as a power hitting outfielder who plays good defense. In 2014, the 29-year-old Cespedes hit .260 with 22 home runs and 100 RBIs. Meanwhile, the Red Sox continue to revamp their starting rotation. Still just 25 years old, Porcello went 15-13 with a 3.43 ERA in 31 starts for the Tigers in 2014. Porcello will be a free agent following the 2015 season.

Yankes Sign Reliever Andrew Miller, Acquire Shorstop Didi Gregorius via Trade

Yankes Sign Reliever Andrew Miller, Acquire Shorstop Didi Gregorius via Trade Major League Baseball(NEW YORK) -- The New York Yankees have taken a major step, or make that steps, in making them a playoff contender again. On Friday, the team signed ace reliever Andrew Miller while also acquiring shortstop Didi Gregorius from the Arizona Diamondbacks in a three-team trade. Miller's deal with the Yankees for four years and will pay him $36 million. Over the past two seasons, Miller has emerged as one of more dominant relievers in the American League with the Boston Red Sox and Baltimore Orioles. In 2014, Miller posted a 5-5 record with a 2.02 ERA to go along with 103 strikeouts in 62.1 innings pitched. His strikeout-per-nine-innings ratio of 14.87 was second to only Cincinnati Reds closer Aroldis Chapman. Meanwhile, Gregorius could very well be the replacement to longtime shortstop Derek Jeter. While he's not known for his bat, he's known as being a great defender at his position. In order to get Gregorius, the Yankees sent pitcher Shane Greene to the Detroit Tigers while the Diamondbacks acquired pitcher Robbie Ray and infielder Domingo Leyba. In 2014, the Yankees missed out on the playoffs for the second-consecutive season after finishing 84-78. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio
