Justin Verlander struggles in anticipated last rehab appearance



Justin Verlander roughed up in expected final rehab start

Houston Astros pitcher Justin Verlander completed his final minor-league rehab outing before rejoining the team’s rotation on Saturday night. The ace pitched four innings for Double-A Corpus Christi and gave up six runs, five of them earned, against the Frisco RoughRiders, a Texas Rangers affiliate.

Verlander, a three-time Cy Young Award winner, threw 51 of his 77 pitches for strikes, striking out three and walking one. The 41-year-old pitcher opened the season on the injured list due to inflammation in his right shoulder.

During the game, Verlander was charged with two wild pitches and two pitch-clock violations. Despite the less-than-ideal performance, the Astros are hopeful for his return to the rotation and his impact on the team.

The outing served as a crucial step in Verlander’s recovery process, and all eyes will be on him as he prepares to make his return to the Astros’ rotation. Stay tuned for more updates as the team eagerly awaits the return of their star pitcher.
