Moves to injured list
PHouston Astros
Neck
June 18, 2024
The Astros placed Verlander on the 15-day injured list Tuesday due to neck discomfort.
ANALYSIS
Manager Joe Espada said earlier Tuesday that the veteran right-hander was progressing slower than expected from the neck discomfort that scratched him from Saturday's scheduled start, and he'll be sidelined for at least a couple turns through the rotation. Verlander is without an official timeline for return, but he'll be eligible to be activated from the injured list at the start of July.
