DETROIT -- Tigers ace Justin Verlander underwent muscle repair surgery Thursday after injuring himself last month during off-season conditioning. Mitch Moreland Jersey . Dr. Bill Meyers in Philadelphia performed the operation on Verlander, who is expected to need six weeks of rehab before being evaluated again. The first workout for Detroits pitchers and catchers at spring training is scheduled for Feb. 14. The first spring training game is Feb. 25 against Florida Southern. "We fully anticipate Justin to participate in spring training and be in a position to compete at the beginning of the 2014 season," general manager Dave Dombrowski said in a statement. The team did not identify the "core muscle" that was repaired, but called the surgery successful. Verlander turns 31 on Feb. 20. The Tigers said Verlander hurt himself at the end of December. There was also a message posted on Verlanders Twitter account: "Thanks for the support regarding my surgery today," it said. "It went well and now my only focus is to get ready for 2014! .determined" Verlander went 13-12 last year with a 3.46 ERA for the AL Central champions. He has been Detoits opening day starter for the last six seasons, the longest active streak by any player with one team, according to STATS. If Verlander isnt at full strength for Detroits regular-season opener against Kansas City on March 31, the Tigers do have Max Scherzer, the reigning AL Cy Young Award winner. One of Verlanders biggest assets is his durability. The right-hander has thrown at least 200 innings in seven consecutive seasons. Verlanders surgery was performed by the same doctor who operated on Detroit teammate Miguel Cabrera after the slugger was limited down the stretch last season by a tear in his groin. Two years ago, the Tigers lost designated hitter Victor Martinez for the entire 2012 season after an off-season injury. Martinez hurt his knee. Verlanders injury does not appear to be nearly as serious, but the Tigers now enter the 2014 season with two of their biggest stars coming off surgery. Nomar Mazara Jersey .Under the agreement announced Monday, the Cuban defector is guaranteed $68.5 million over six seasons.Tomas gets a $14 million signing bonus that is payable within 30 days of the deals approval by Major League Baseball, and then salaries of $2 million next year, $4 million in 2016, $6 million in 2017 and $10 million in 2018. Texas Rangers Hoodie . It was the first game back in Columbus for Rangers star Rick Nash, the Blue Jackets franchise leader in goals, assists and games. He was given a standing ovation during a video tribute in the first period, but was booed loud and long after a second-period, two-handed shove up high on Columbus goalie Sergei Bobrovsky. http://www.rangersapparelsshop.com/customized-c-4/ .C. -- Carter Ashton had a pair of goals and added an assist as the Toronto Marlies downed the Charlotte Checkers 5-2 on Saturday in the American Hockey League.One of the most important statistics that can be measured for a football teams success is their turnover margin.  Turnover margin is the combination of two things.  First it is how many takeaways the defence gets per game.  Takeaways are determined as an interception, a fumble recovery or a turnover on downs.  The combination of all three is called a teams takeaways.  How many takeaways it got against its opponent.  The other piece that makes up turnover margin is giveaways.  Giveaways are fumbles, interceptions and turnovers on downs by the offence.  You combine those and they will give you the teams turnover margin.  Lets look at Week 1, using the Argonauts and Blue Bombers game as an example.  Toronto had three giveaways and two takeaways.   They finished with a turnover margin of -1.  Conversely the Bombers had two giveaways and three takeaways to finish with a turnover margin of +1.  That is how you measure what a teams turnover margin is by game.  Since 2001, I have been charting the importance of protecting the football and how to teach it to players.  Charting the winning percentage by turnover margin is one of the first things we always do and talk about.  In 2001, while coaching the running backs for the Argonauts we did a number of things to have great ball security.  First we were not allowed to say the word "fumble", we didnt want to even mention it, so instead we called them "POOR BALL SECURITIES" or PBS. I had a laminated action shot of every running back hanging in my office.  It said under the picture,   "________TOUCHES WITHOUT A PBS." The running backs would come in after the game and erase the old number and add to the total touches without a PBS for the season.  We were trying to really get the players to focus on protecting the ball and make sure they were always thinking about the fundamentals of good ball security. Will Middlebrooks Jersey.   Lets take a look at how the turnover margin has affected teams in the CFL this year: • +1 turnover margin: 6-2 record and a 75% winning percentage • +2 turnover margin: 4-0 record and a 100% winning percentage • +3 turnover margin: 2-0 record and a 100% winning percentage • +4 turnover margin: 2-0 record and a 100% winning percentage • Win the TO margin: 14-2 record and a 88% winning percentage • Lose the TO margin: 2-14 record and a 12% winning percentage Lets examine last years turnover margin for a few teams.  Last year after four weeks, Saskatchewan had a second best 10 takeaways and a league best one giveaway, for a +9 turnover margin which was best in the CFL after four weeks.  Saskatchewan also sported a 4-0 record at the time.  This year they have five takeaways and seven giveaways for a -2 turnover margin and that has led to a 1-2 record to this point. Winnipeg after four weeks last year had a league worst -9 turnover margin and a 1-3 record.  They have improved that to -2 turnover margin and have a 3-1 record. They are also the only team to win when losing the turnover margin which they have done twice. Last year, Edmonton has a -2 turnover margin after four weeks and sported a 1-3 record. This season it has drastically changed for the Eskimos.  They have 15 takeaways and only five giveaways for a +10 turnover margin and a sparkling 4-0 record.  They have done a great job of taking the ball away on defence and have eliminated critical mistakes on offence.  They are six better than the second place Calgary Stampeders with a +4 turnover margin.  The surest way to be successful as a team is to win the turnover margin on a consistent basis.
