There are rumors that Kate Upton and Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander are dating after a series of photos of them together.

Busted Coverage posted the images allegedly featuring Upton getting cozy with one of the best pitchers in all of Major League Baseball.

The Detroit Free Press claims a woman named Amanda Waynick, who was celebrating her 25th birthday at the bar, asked Verlander for a picture.

He declined gently but she later spotted him with Kate Upton in the background of several photos she took of herself and some pals.

Of course, it is well known that Verlander has been linked to his longtime girlfriend Emily Yuen. So, this is all just speculation... 

Well, it is probably the starting American League pitcher in the 2012 MLB All-Star Game and the all-star creator of the Cat Daddy video hitting it.

It has to be mentioned that the two met on the set of a commercial for MLB 2K12, so they are certainly acquainted.

Time will tell...
