Astros’ Justin Verlander out for season with elbow injury

The Astros will announce that reigning American League Cy Young Award winner Justin Verlander is out for the season with an elbow injury, two people with knowledge of the situation told The Chronicle on Sunday.

The injury deals a near fatal blow to the Astros’ hopes for World Series contention in this 60-game season. Verlander is the team’s unquestioned ace, the rock around which their starting rotation is formed. He struck out 300 batters last season and posted the third-lowest WHIP in modern major league history.

Astros’ Justin Verlander resumes throwing after groin surgery

And now, for a glimpse at normalcy:

Houston Astros ace Justin Verlander has resumed throwing as he recovers from March groin surgery.

Houston manager Dusty Baker said Wednesday that Verlander, who had surgery on March 17, is “doing great” and is throwing as he continues his rehabilitation.

Verlander dealt with the problem early in spring training. His first start was delayed until March 3 because of discomfort in his right groin. He made two starts, pitching 4 innings with a 3.86 ERA.

Verlander left his second start on March 8 with a mild strain of a back muscle and said at the time he unlikely would be able to start the scheduled March 26 opener against the Los Angeles Angels.

Astros’ Justin Verlander to donate paychecks to help people impacted by coronavirus

Astros ace Justin Verlander announced on Saturday he will donate all of his paychecks during baseball’s shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Verlander and his wife, Kate Upton, revealed their plan via an Instagram video. The couple said they’ll choose an organization each week to donate an entire week’s paycheck. They plan to highlight the group’s contributions to the coronavirus pandemic, too.

“Obviously this is an extremely difficult time for the entire world,” Verlander said. “There’s so many people that are in need, whether it’s the people on the front lines battling this disease head-on or someone who is at home and has lost their job and needs to provide basic necessities.”
