Fantasy Impact:

Athletes tend to be overly optimistic when it comes to their own injury timelines, and this would be a remarkable achievement if the 38-year-old is able to pull it off. Verlander underwent Tommy John surgery in September and is currently rehabbing. A return to start the 2022 season is more likely.
