Houston Astros Ace Justin Verlander Possibly Out for Season with Forearm Strain

Home » Houston Astros Ace Justin Verlander Possibly Out for Season with Forearm Strain

The ace of the Houston Astros starting pitching staff, Justin Verlander, strained his right forearm, and according to the initial injury report he is supposed to miss the remainder of the 2020 Major League Baseball season. Although this controversial injury report comes from the doctors on the Houston Astros medical staff, Verlander and his first year manager Dusty Baker are fairly confident that he will be back and ready to pitch again well before the end of this season.

The Injury

Apparently Verlander suffered the strain of his pitching forearm (right) on Friday, July 24th, 2020 during the Houston Astros home opening game against the Seattle Mariners. The injury was said to have occurred early on in the ballgame, and Verlander managed to pitch great after sustaining the strain to his right forearm.

He pitched 6 innings while allowing 3 hits, 2 earned runs, 1 base on balls, and 7 striking out 7 batters on this occasion. The Houston Astros defeated the Seattle Mariners with a final score of 8 to 2. Verlander recorded the win in this match up, but his future for the rest of the 2020 MLB season in now under question due to this injury. Verlander underwent an MRI the following day after his start on Saturday, July 25th, 2020, and that is what revealed the ailment to his throwing arm.

The Reaction to the Diagnosis  

While the initial report indicates that Verlander is finished for the year, Justin as well as his manager, Dusty Baker, strongly disagree with the preliminary analysis of his injury. The workhorse of a pitcher says, “The report that I’m currently missing the rest of the season is not accurate,” he tweeted. “There is a forearm strain … I’m hopeful that with some rest it will heal, and I’ll be able to return soon. Thank you for all the well wishes.”

Dusty responded to this breaking news by stating, “The right hander will be shut down for a couple weeks, then we’ll reevaluate at that time. That’s all I can tell you.” While both of them seem quite optimistic that this injury is not serious, and that Justin will most likely return sooner than later, only time will tell.

What does Verlander’s injury mean for the 2020 Houston Astros?…

During the last MLB offseason, the Houston Astros lost arguably the best pitcher in baseball in Gerrit Cole to free agency as he has now joined the New York Yankees, the Astros are lighter in the starting pitching department. Now with the loss of their ace pitcher, Justin Verlander, the Houston Astros must rely on their high octane offense led by superstar players such as Jose Altuve, Alex Bregman, George Springer, and Carlos Correa.

The good news for them is that they still have the services of Zack Greinke as a solid starting pitcher for their determined squad to prove everyone wrong after they were caught cheating in the sign stealing scandal that overtook the headlines of Major League Baseball over the last year or so. Hopefully Verlander will return for at least the 2020 MLB postseason as the Houston Astros are no doubt much better with him than without him.

The Houston Astros MLB Franchise History 

As seen below in bold text the years of service that Justin Verlander contributed to the Houston Astros coincide directly with some of their best years in franchise history. Verlander won the American League Cy Young Award last year for his work throughout the 2019 MLB season. Over the course of the last 3 years that the Houston Astros have had Verlander they have been to 2 World Series, and they won the World Series in 2017. They also made it to the American League Championship Series in 2018 as well. It is obvious that Justin makes not only the Houston Astros better with him, but whatever team he plays for much better like the former Detroit Tigers teams that he played for.

Media Statements

Justin Verlander tweeted: The report that I’m currently missing the rest of the season is not accurate. There is a forearm strain … I’m hopeful that with some rest it will heal, and I’ll be able to return soon. Thank you for all the well wishes.”

The Houston Astros manager Dusty Baker also had reservations concerning the initial injury report as he said, “The right-hander will be shut down for a couple weeks, then we’ll reevaluate at that time. That’s all I can tell you.”

“It happened [Friday] early in the game, but he said he felt fine,” Baker explained. “You see he was throwing the ball great … so it was kind of a shock to all of us.”

“We’re looking into that,” says Baker. “We know we’re a little short, especially on veteran arms. We’re still trying to decide who can help us.” 

“It’s not a pleasant situation to think about Verlander or thinking about how many young players we have in the bullpen and organization, but we’ll go back to the drawing board,” Baker proclaimed.
