With Major League Baseball shut down for the foreseeable future, Houston Astros starter Justin Verlander experienced a crotch activity that will keep him out of activity for six weeks.
Be that as it may, this doesn’t seem identified with the lat injury that had put Verlander’s Opening Day start especially in danger.
“Initially, the hope was that physical therapy would be the proper course of action,” Astros GM James Click said in a statement. “However, after a recent setback in his rehab, the medical staff recommended that a surgical procedure was necessary. The early prognosis is that Justin will be out for about six weeks.”
Baseball is postponed at least into May, following CDC rules for the next two months, so the 37-year-old Verlander would apparently be a great idea to go – as long as his other injury has cleared up.
Verlander won the Cy Young Award in 2019 going 21-6 with a 2.58 ERA and 300 strikeouts yet wasn’t exactly himself in the postseason, as the Astros lost the World Series to the Washington Nationals.
