Verlander had groin surgery which will sideline him for several weeks. But given the postponement of the season, it seems unlikely to threaten Verlander's availability for Opening Day, whenever that may be. Although surgery is never a good sign, in the end, it's better for Verlander that he could get this out of the way now rather than have it linger. For now, keep him high on your draft boards.

Justin Verlander (groin) on schedule for recovery

Justin Verlander (groin) is on schedule for his recovery from groin surgery.

Fantasy Impact

Verlander underwent groin surgery in March and is expected to be out the next six weeks. He is recovering well and is on schedule to return before the season starts. Astros’ general manager James Click said “Verlander is ready to get back out there as soon as he possibly can.” The MLB season is currently on hold due to the coronavirus epidemic, but the 37-year-old should be ready to throw by then.
