Houston Astros’ Justin Verlander to Undergo Tommy John Surgery

Houston Astros’ Justin Verlander suffered an elbow injury in late July during a game against the Seattle Mariners, and over the weekend the star pitcher announced that he will undergo Tommy John surgery, officially ending his season.

Verlander made the announcement with a video, saying in part, “I’m going to handle this the only way I know how. I’m going to be optimistic, and I’m going to put my head down and work hard, attack this rehab and hopefully come out on the other side better for it.” Verlander then explained that he hoped this surgery would help him extend his career as he tries to accomplish multiple goals.
