Veteran Verlander, 40, Suspends Pitching With More Than His Spra

Justin Verlander (Houston Astros) felt uncomfortable with his shoulder from the start of spring training.

MLBCOM, the official website of Major League Baseball, said on the 15th (Korea time), "At the start of spring training, Houston suffered a bad first set when veteran right-hander Verlander announced that his pitching schedule was delayed by about two weeks due to shoulder problems." Verlander said he suffered from "a nuisance," but it was too early to say whether it would affect his appearance on the opening day. He said he has been off the mound three times so far this offseason

"I'm a little bit behind schedule at the moment. I had trouble organizing myself at first, but I have to be really careful in getting in shape," Verlander said. "I don't think my body is responding in the same way it was in 40s or 25. I feel like a few weeks have passed," he said.

Verlander felt discomfort in his shoulder during the catch and stopped pitching, according to MLB.COM. "So I had to take a step back and work hard on the build-up," he said. "I've always been someone who can bowl if I'm lucky. This time, it wasn't easy, so I had to slow down a little bit. I always want to rest as much as possible, but the schedule is always tight." He said, "It's tight. I slowed down a little bit during the tight schedule, so I got a little bit behind."

Verlander won the 2022 American League Cy Young Award unanimously in Houston, going 18-4 with 175 innings with a 1.75 ERA with 185 strikeouts and a 0.83 WHIP. He then entered the free agent market and moved to the New York Mets. The Mets' debut was postponed as they went on the injured list with a right arm injury just hours before the opening game.

Since then, he has played in 16 games for the Mets, winning six games and losing five, with 81 strikeouts and an ERA of 3.15 and WHIP 1.14 in 94 innings in ⅓. The Mets, who were less likely to advance to the fall baseball league, have teamed up with Houston, the "home team," again by using Verlander as a trade card. In 11 games with Houston, he had 7 wins and 3 losses and 68 innings in 18 walks with 63 strikeouts and an ERA of 3.31 and WHIP 1.12.

"It was definitely last year's whirlwind to be back in the Astros in the blink of an eye after going through everything with a new team," Verlander said. "It was definitely a relaxing time. I think it was a year-long bookmark for me and my career." "It was one of those years when you look back and say, 'It's been a great year.'"

"I'm not worried because of the attitude he's shown in our conversation," coach Joe Espada said of Verlander. "He gives me no reason to worry, but he's behind it and I believe in Verlander's judgment. Our mission is to have him lead us throughout the season." "It's to make sure we're ready to help."
