By Justin Verlander The first career foray into freelancing didn’t last long. Verlander is coming back Houston Astros after rejecting a one-year qualifying offer of $18.4 million ahead of Wednesday’s deadline. His younger brother, Ben, posted the information on Twitter.
Contract terms are not known. Verlander has not played since Opening Day 2020 because of an elbow injury that required Tommy John surgery. By all accounts, his detox has gone well, and Verlander will be ready to hit the training ground next spring.
CBS Sports will have more on this story shortly.
