    • Verlander (16-9) tossed seven innings while earning the win Sunday, allowing one run on a walk and three hits (including a home run) and striking out 11 in the 5-4 win against Arizona. Verlander cruised through five scoreless innings before David Peralta tagged him with a solo shot in the sixth. Still, it was another terrific outing for the 35-year-old, who has fanned 40 batters over his last four starts. On the season, he owns a ridiculous 269:36 K:BB. He'll carry a 2.67 ERA into Saturday's home contest against the Angels.

    • Astros' Justin Verlander: Picks up win No. 14
      By RotoWire Staff

      Verlander (14-9) allowed one run on three hits in a win over the Twins on Tuesday, striking out eight and walking two in seven innings. Verlander was solid once again, allowing just one extra-base hit and throwing 71 of 102 pitches for strikes to pick up his 14th win of the season. Verlander now has 22 quality starts this year and ranks in the top five among MLB starters in innings pitched (188), strikeouts (248) and WHIP (0.94). He'll take on his old team in his next start in Detroit.

    • Verlander (12-8) allowed four earned runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out six across 5.1 innings but earned the win Sunday against the Athletics. It was the right-hander's 200th career win. Verlander surrendered three home runs in the first three innings -- Khris Davis took him deep twice -- but bounced back to pitch his final 2.1 innings without surrendering a run. After allowing multiple home runs three times in his first 20 starts, Verlander has now allowed multiple home runs in four of his past seven outings. In that span, his ERA has risen from 2.05 to 2.65. While that's still an excellent mark that's good enough for fourth in the American League, his recent susceptibility to the long ball is at least worth noting. Verlander will look for career win No. 201 on Saturday against the Angels.

    • Astros' Justin Verlander: Whiffs 14 in win
      By RotoWire Staff

      Verlander (11-6) allowed one run on four hits and a walk while striking out 14 over 7.2 innings in Friday's 2-1 win over the Dodgers. Verlander was touched for a leadoff home run by Joc Pederson in the home half of the first inning, then shut down the Dodgers, who did not have a runner reach second base against him the rest of the way. This was the third consecutive start and fifth over the last six that Verlander has allowed two or fewer runs. His next turn is scheduled for Thursday at home against the Mariners.
