    The New York Mets lost Jacob deGrom but Steve Cohen responded by landing Justin Verlander on Monday, which sent fans into some wild reactions. Whenever Jacob deGrom signed his lucrative deal with the Texas Rangers, you knew it was only a matter of time before Steve Cohen and the New York Mets answered with a splashy move of their own. On Monday, they did just that as the club inked a deal with reigning AL Cy Young winner Justin Verlander. The deal is set to be a two-year, $86 million pact between New York and Verlander, a lucrative short-term contract for the 40-year-old hurler with a third-year vesting option. Talk about making a statement and answering big time. Verlander returned from Tommy John surgery that kept him out of the 2021 season with Houston to be as dominant as ever. He won the Cy Young with the Astros as he finished the season with an 18-4 record, 1.75 ERA and absurd 220 ERA+. He now reunites with Max Scherzer on the Mets as the two veterans were teammates on the...

Once the champagne stops flowing, the front office can turn its attention to free agency where they’ll have some big decisions to make. The Astros defeated the Philadelphia Phillies in six after sweeping the Seattle Mariners and New York Yankees prior. It was an amazing run for a talented team.

    HOUSTON ASTROS pitcher Justin Verlander has taken quickly to the 'Philly hello.'

    Houston Astros pitcher Justin Verlander has officially hit the injured list, but things could be looking up for him quickly. Houston Astros pitcher Justin Verlander has officially hit the injured list after further testing for his calf. Though having an injury is never an enjoyable situation, the outcome of Verlander’s seems to be the best possible outcome. According to Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle, the Astros reported that the MRI showed “fascial disruption, but no muscle fiber disruption.” According to the Astros, Justin Verlanders MRI showed "fascial disruption, but no muscle fiber disruption."

I went on the IL, so it is disappointing, but on the spectrum of calf injuries go, this is as good of news as I could have gotten.” Luckily, his injury is anticipated to be short-term. General manager James Click stated, “Our hope and expectation is that this should be relatively short-term.” Though the Astros have a great...
    Houston Astros ace Justin Verlander has been unstoppable in this recent stretch of games, and that could spell trouble for the New York Yankees. This offseason, one of the more intriguing names on the free agent market was veteran and multi-time Cy Young winner Justin Verlander, who was recovering from Tommy John surgery. His contract with the Houston Astros expired and he tested the open market. He even received an offer from the New York Yankees. Ultimately, he  opted to stay in Houston on a one-year, $25 million deal with a player option for 2023. That move has worked out tremendously for the Astros thus far, as he is on his way to winning yet another Cy Young award. On Thursday night, Verlander pitched six scoreless innings, where he struck out five batters and allowed just two hits in Houston’s 6-0 win over the Cleveland Guardians. That was enough to give Verlander his 15th win of the season and lower his ERA to 1.73.Justin Verlander dominant in recent stretch of starts for AstrosBut this game speaks nothing to how impressive...
    HOUSTON (AP) — Justin Verlander struck out 10 in six sharp innings to post his MLB-leading 12th win and the Houston Astros beat the Oakland Athletics 5-0 Saturday. Martín Maldonado hit a second-inning grand slam as the AL West-leading Astros bounced back after a 5-1 loss in the series opener Friday night. The A’s actually outhit Houston 7-6, but had little to show for it. Verlander (12-3) allowed six hits without a walk and lowered his ERA to 1.89, which ranks third in the majors. Phil Maton, Hector Neris and Bryan Abreu each pitched a scoreless inning to complete the shutout against the team with the AL’s worst record. Verlander, who leads all active players in strikeouts, now has 3,121 in his career, moving him past Curt Schilling (3,116) and Bob Gibson (3,117) into 14th place on the all-time list. Verlander’s stellar season comes after the 39-year-old missed almost two full seasons recovering from Tommy John surgery. He was selected to his ninth All-Star game and will attend next week’s festivities in Los Angeles but will not pitch in...
    HOUSTON (AP) — Justin Verlander got his MLB-leading 11th win, Yordan Alvarez hit his 26th homer and the Houston Astros beat the Kansas City Royals 5-2 on Thursday to take the series 3-1. Jose Altuve added a homer and three RBIs for the Astros, who bounced back after a 7-4 loss Wednesday night that snapped an eight-game winning streak. Verlander (11-3) grinded through six innings, allowing seven hits and two runs — one earned — with eight strikeouts to lower his ERA to 2.00 in his remarkable return from Tommy John surgery. His ERA, opponent average (1.90) and WHIP (0.97) all rank second in the American League. The Royals led 2-0 and Kris Bubic (1-6) had walked five batters but had allowed just one hit on a single by Jake Meyers in the second when Martín Maldonado doubled with one out in the fifth. Altuve jumped on the first pitch of the at-bat, sending it into the seats in left field to tie it at 2-2. There were two outs in the inning when Alvarez connected on his opposite-field shot...
    Taijaun Walker refused to be outdueled by Justin Verlander in the Mets’ 2-0 loss to the Astros on Wednesday at Citi Field. Of late, the right-hander’s starts have only been getting better and better, reminiscent of his first-half performance in 2021 that earned him his first career All-Star nod. Walker threw 7.1 shutout innings in his best start of the season so far, against an Astros lineup that has given the Mets a lot of trouble. Walker at one point retired nine in a row, matching Verlander’s outing inning by inning in the scoreless game. “I felt like I had everything working today,” said Walker, who was helped by Luis Guillorme’s wizardry at third base. Guillorme fielded 12 of the game’s 27 outs, including 10 of the first 19, on Wednesday. As excellent of a performance it was, Buck Showalter cut it short in the eighth. Showing a sense of urgency, the Mets skipper pulled Walker after he got one out in the eighth, giving the ball earlier than usual to closer Edwin Diaz so he could face the top...
    HOUSTON (AP) — Justin Verlander struck out a season-high 12 in seven sparkling innings, Yordan Alvarez hit a two-run homer and the Houston Astros beat the Seattle Mariners 4-1 on Tuesday night. There was no trouble between the teams one night after beanballs led to a bench-clearing scuffle. Houston bench coach Joe Espada filled in for manager Dusty Baker, who served a one-game suspension after he and reliever Héctor Neris were ejected from Monday’s game. Baker was also fined an undisclosed amount. Verlander (7-2) yielded one run on six hits and improved to 3-1 with a 2.93 ERA in four starts against the Mariners this season. The right-hander now has 3,086 career strikeouts, moving past Max Scherzer (3,079) and John Smoltz (3,084) for 17th place. The win was the 233rd of Verlander’s career, tying Charlie Buffinton for 62nd all-time. Rafael Montero walked the bases loaded with one out in the eighth but induced an inning-ending double play from Abraham Toro. Ryan Pressly pitched the ninth for his 11th save. Alvarez hit his 17th home run in the eighth, just...
    OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Justin Verlander took a no-hitter into the seventh inning, Yordan Álvarez cleared the bases with a go-ahead double in the ninth and the Houston Astros beat the Oakland Athletics 5-4 on Wednesday to complete a three-game sweep. Elvis Andrus broke up Verlander’s no-hit bid with an RBI double in the seventh inning that tied the game at 1.

What can I say? These guys didn’t quit.” Verlander came within seven outs of his fourth career no-hitter, which would have tied Sandy...

    A look at what’s happening around baseball today: ___ CORREA CONNECTION Justin Verlander (3-1, 1.93 ERA) and the Houston Astros try for their eighth straight win when they visit Joe Ryan (3-1, 1.63) and the first-place Minnesota Twins in a matchup of American League contenders with identical 18-11 records. It’s unclear if new Twins shortstop Carlos Correa will play in the three-game series against his former team because of a bruised finger. Correa has been sidelined since he was hit by a pitch late last week. The two-time All-Star and 2015 AL Rookie of the Year went from Houston to Minnesota last offseason, signing a $105.3 million, three-year contract. He can opt out after each of the first two seasons. After completing a 7-0 homestand Sunday, the Astros open a nine-game road trip. Minnesota has swept three of its last five series and won 14 of 17 since beginning the season 4-8.

    HOUSTON (AP) — Justin Verlander turned in another solid start and Alex Bregman had three hits and three RBIs and the Houston Astros completed a three-game sweep of the Seattle Mariners with a 7-2 win Wednesday. Verlander allowed five hits and two runs in 6 2/3 innings for the win. He is 3-1 with a 1.93 ERA in five starts this season in his return from Tommy John surgery. Michael Brantley two RBIs as the Astros continued to roll with their first sweep this season, a day after helping Dusty Baker become the 12th manager in major league history and the first Black man to reach 2,000 wins. Houston star Jose Altuve fouled a ball off his groin area on an at-bat in the fourth inning and stayed in the game to single but was replaced at second base to start the fifth. The team said he left the game with right groin soreness. Eugenio Suarez hit a two-run homer with one out in the seventh to snap a scoreless drought of 24 1/3 innings for the...
    SEATTLE (AP) — Justin Verlander pitched three-hit ball over eight innings for his first win since July 2020 and the Houston Astros beat the Seattle Mariners 4-0 on Saturday night. Martín Maldonado provided the offense with a two-run homer for his first hit of the season. A day after watching Seattle roll up 11 runs against Houston pitching, Verlander (1-1) looked to be back in the form that earned him the 2019 AL Cy Young award. Verlander earned his first victory since beating Seattle on July 24, 2020 on the opening day of the shortened 2020 season, before undergoing Tommy John surgery on his right elbow. Leaning mostly on his fastball and slider, Verlander finished eight innings for the first time since Sept. 1, 2019, when he no-hit the Toronto Blue Jays. The only hits he allowed to Seattle were a leadoff single by Adam Frazier to begin the first and Ty France’s singles in the fourth and sixth innings. Verlander struck out eight with no walks on 87 pitches. The only other batter to reach...
