What was expected! Astros confirms Justin Verlander will not play in MLB 2021

In the last hours a complicated news was released for Houston Astros as it was reported that Justin Verlander will not be able to play in the remainder of the 2021 season from MLB. The Texan team and the pitcher hoped that he could join late in the season, but everything indicates that he is not sufficiently recovered from the Tommy John surgery that he underwent.

James Click, general manager of the Houston Astros, recently informed the press that Justin Verlander will not be able to join the team for the remainder of the 2021 MLB season due to Tommy John to which he was subjected.

As stated by the executive, the specialists recommended to the pitcher and the organization that the best thing they could do for the rehabilitation process is not to play this year.

The Texans’ pitching ace was submitted to Tommy John in 2020 after he injured himself pitching in all six innings of the only game he was able to play during that season.

Justin Verlander will become a free agent at the end of the 2021 MLB season and at the moment there is no indication or it is clear if the Houston Astros will seek to sign him again or let him go.

I joined ‘Al Bat’ in September 2020, starting a new work stage in which I always seek to give my best version, in addition to leaving a significant mark on the passage of women in an industry that is managed mainly by men. Degree in Communication Sciences and Techniques from the Inter-American University for Development (UNID), I am a specialist in sports journalism, writing and editing texts, I have three years of experience covering sports, especially baseball from the Mexican Baseball League (LMB ), Liga Mexicana del Pacífico (LMP) and MLB. I was an intern at the LMB Leones de Yucatán Baseball Club, with whom I attended the 2019 Rey Series. I have done work for social networks such as the coverage of the 2019-2020 edition of the LMP Final for ‘Con Las Bases Llenas’. I am constantly updated on social media, SEO, Google positioning, writing, digital journalism, as well as the place of women in the sports industry. Originally from Mérida, Yucatán, my first approach to baseball was in a game of Lions of Yucatán, in the ‘Kukulcán Álamo’ Park, in 2015; and that changed my life completely. The ‘Melenudos’ are the team of my loves and the greatest passion I have in this sport. Although I dedicate myself to baseball most of the time, my sport, in the beginning, was (and still is) soccer. Real Madrid and Bayern Munich won my heart and fans from ‘minute one’ and I am fortunate to have already seen them play live. Clearly, I am a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and Manuel Neuer.
