Astros' Justin Verlander (groin) scratched Thursday
Houston Astros starting pitcher Justin Verlander has been scratched from his scheduled Grapefruit League start on Thursday due to groin discomfort.
Tigers manager Dusty Baker said Verlander will throw a simulated game on Thursday instead. The 2019 American League Cy Young Award should be fine for Opening Day.
Verlander recorded a 2.58 ERA and 0.80 WHIP with 300 strikeouts and 42 walks over 223 innings last season. He went 21-6 in 34 starts.
