Houston Astros starting pitcher Justin Verlander is scheduled to make a rehab start. It will be on Sunday for the Astros Triple-A team, the Space Cowboys. He will throw 70-75 pitches and will need one additional start before rejoining the team. Astros manager Joe Espada announced yesterday.


Justin Verlander has yet to pitch this season. He went on the injured list in spring training. Verlander hadn't progressed to the point where he could start facing hitters in spring training. Therefore, the Astros decided it was best for Verlander to just begin the season on the IL and give him his time that he needs.


Getting Justin Verlander back into the Astros rotation would be huge for the them. They have had a bad start to 2024 and their starting rotation has been a big part of their struggles. Verlander pitched for the Mets and Astros last year, he started a total of 27 games. Justin Verlander posted a 13-8 record, 3.22 ERA, 144 K's, and a 1.133 WHIP.


There's been just 7 offical games this year. The Astros are 2-5. They need as much pitching as they can get, there's never enough pitching on a team. Once the Astros get Justin Verlander back their rotation will look a whole lot better then it does now.
