Astros' Justin Verlander: Named Game 5 starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager A.J. Hinch said Verlander will start Game 5 of the ALCS against the Red Sox on Thursday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

As expected, Verlander will get the ball for Game 5 after picking up a win in Game 1 with a quality outing. The ace is 2-0 with a 3.18 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 13:6 K:BB through two starts (11.1 innings) this postseason.

Astros' Justin Verlander: Takes hill for Game 1 of ALCS
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Verlander will start Game 1 of the ALCS against Boston on Saturday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Verlander will pitch Saturday's series opener on a few extra days of rest after earning the win in Game 1 of the ALDS versus the Indians on Friday. Manager A.J. Hinch confirmed that Gerrit Cole will follow Verlander in the rotation during the team's two-game set in Boston. Barring a sweep, Verlander will likely be back on the mound for Game 5 next Wednesday. In his one start against the Red Sox during the regular season, Verlander allowed two earned runs on three hits and a pair of walks while striking out six in six innings June 2.

Astros' Justin Verlander: Earns the win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Verlander (1-0) gave up two runs on two hits and two walks over 5.1 innings in a win over the Indians in Game 1 of the American League Division Series. He struck out seven.

Verlander was dominant early, retiring 15 of the first 16 batters he faced. The 35-year-old then allowed two singles and a walk to load the bases in the sixth inning. Verlander was promptly removed, and while two of his runners came around to score, the Houston bullpen only allowed one hit to secure the playoff win for the right-hander. Verlander posted a 12.2 K/9, 2.52 ERA and 16 wins in the regular season and will look to keep it rolling in his next playoff appearance.

Astros' Justin Verlander: Fans 10 in quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Verlander struck out 10 and allowed three hits and a walk across six scoreless innings during Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Orioles. He did not factor in the decision.

Verlander exited after six innings with a 3-0 lead, but the bullpen promptly allowed three runs during the seventh to cost him a shot at the win. The veteran right-hander was utterly dominant in September, striking out double-digit batters in four straight starts while allowing four earned runs over 33 innings. The 35-year-old will finish the regular season with a 2.52 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and 290 strikeouts over 214 innings.

Astros' Justin Verlander: Starting first game Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Verlander will start the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Orioles, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

Verlander had been scheduled to pitch Friday, but Thursday's rainout forced the schedule and rotation to be altered. The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader Saturday. Thursday's starter, Gerrit Cole, will start Friday, while Verlander was pushed to Saturday. Dallas Keuchel will pitch the nightcap of the doubleheader.
