Justin Verlander Out for Rest of the MLB Season

Justin Verlander

Houston Astros ace Justin Verlander is out for the rest of the MLB regular season after sustaining an elbow injury according to the Houston Chronicle.

Verlander was the AL Cy Young last season after throwing 300 strikeouts and posting a 21-6 record in 34 games last season.

Last season Verlander won his second Cy Young, his first came back in 2011 when he also won MVP. He is also an 8x All-Star and was a part of the 2017 Houston Astros World Series Team.

Losing Verlander is a huge blow to a Houston Astros team trying to prove that they are still a championship contending team after being exposed for their sign stealing scandal last offseason. It also doesn’t help that the team lost their second pitcher in their rotation from a season ago Gerrit Cole to the New York Yankees.

In Verlander’s first and only start of the season he picked up a win against the Seattle Mariners. He threw six innings giving up three hits, two of which were home runs. Verlander also had seven strikeouts as well.
