  • Astros' Justin Verlander: Looks human Wednesday

    Verlander pitched six innings, allowing three runs on five hits and a walk while striking out seven in Wednesday's extra-inning loss to the Rangers. He did not factor into the decision. Verlander returned to earth Wednesday, allowing more than one earned run for the first time in eight starts. The Rangers scratched two runs across in the top of the fourth and a sacrifice fly by Leody Taveras in the sixth frame provided the final tally against Verlander. The 39-year-old was able to extend his quality-start streak to eight consecutive outings, producing an absurd 1.17 ERA and 0.82 WHIP with 53 strikeouts over 53.2 innings during that stretch. His season numbers now sit at a 1.85 ERA and 0.86 WHIP with 134 punchouts over 136 frames in 21 outings.

  • Astros' Justin Verlander: Leaves team, may get weekend start

    Verlander didn't accompany the Astros to Anaheim for their ongoing series with the Angels this week while he tends to what manager Dusty Baker called a "family issue," Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports. Verlander had been a candidate to start Thursday's series finale with the Angels on six days' rest, which would have put him on a normal schedule ahead of next week's MLB All-Star Game. Cristian Javier and Framber Valdez will instead take the hill for the final two games of the series with Anaheim, but Verlander remains on the 26-man active roster and Baker is hopeful that the veteran right-hander will be ready to take the hill at some point during the Astros' weekend series with the Athletics. Since Verlander now looks on track to return to the mound this weekend, Baker said revealed that the nine-time All-Star will "probably not" appear in the Midsummer Classic, according to Rome.

  • Astros' Justin Verlander: Unusually shaky in loss

    Verlander (8-3) allowed seven runs (four earned) on nine hits and no walks while striking out three over 3.2 innings, taking the loss Saturday versus the White Sox. Errors have tarnished his line in each of the last two starts, but Verlander simply wasn't that effective Saturday in his shortest outing of the year. The White Sox rallied in the third and fourth innings to knock him from the contest. The veteran right-hander saw his ERA jump from 1.94 to 2.30 with a 0.89 WHIP and 81:15 K:BB across 82.1 innings in 13 starts this year.

The 39-year-old now has a 1.94 ERA, 0.81 WHIP and 78:15 K:BB through 78.2 innings across 12 starts. He projects to make his next start at home versus the White Sox next weekend.
