Houston's Justin Verlander to undergo Tommy John surgery

Houston Astros pitcher Justin Verlander announced on his Instagram on Saturday that he will undergo Tommy John surgery.

What It Means:

Verlander was working his way back after being shut down nearly two months ago but suffered a set back during Wednesday's simulated game. The 37-year-old will miss the rest of the season and potentially time beyond that.

Verlander will finish the 2020 season with a 3.00 ERA, 0.67 WHIP, 7 strikeouts, and 1 walk in 6 innings pitched.
