Astros' Justin Verlander: Fans nine and picks up sixth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Verlander (6-2) got the win Wednesday, striking out nine over six innings while allowing one run on three hits and a walk.

Verlander was locked in, getting ahead with 17 first-pitch strikes to the 22 batters he faced and induced 18 swinging strikes. Even in his age-35 season, he continues to be absolutely lights out, boasting an absurd 1.08 ERA and career-high 11.2 K/9. Verlander has allowed more than one earned run just twice this year -- and more than two only once -- but he'll draw a tough matchup next time out in New York against the Yankees on Monday.

Astros' Justin Verlander: Tosses first shutout since 2015
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Verlander (5-2) allowed just five hits and a walk with seven strikeouts in a complete game shutout victory Wednesday over the Angels.

Verlander has lasted eight innings twice -- April 15 against Texas and May 1 against the Yankees -- but Wednesday marked Verlander's first complete game of 2018 and his first shutout since August 26, 2015 with the Tigers. The fastball was dominant for Verlander, as it topped out at 98.4 mph and induced 10 of his 14 swinging strikes. Even at 35 years old, Verlander is proving he still has the velocity to lock down major league lineups. His ERA is down to a ludicrous 1.05 and he'll look to keep his hot start going Wednesday in an interleague battle against the Giants.

Astros' Justin Verlander: Will pitch Friday against Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Verlander will take the mound against Texas on Friday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

Verlander will remain on regular rest as manager A.J. Hinch decided to push Charlie Morton back another day, as the latter will now toe the rubber Saturday. During his latest outing against Arizona on Sunday, Verlander allowed one run on three hits and three walks while striking out eight over six innings, and picked up his first loss of the season. Through eight starts in 2018, he's posted a 1.17 ERA and 0.71 WHIP with a 70:11 K:BB in 53.2 innings.
