Verlander topped 200 innings pitched in 2017 for the 10th time in the last 11 seasons. Although he's developing a pattern of struggling in the first half before righting the ship, his numbers end up right where they need to be ay season's end. The trade to Houston, with its improved defense and playoff-caliber team, only seemed to revive Verlander, which bodes well for his near future. Although he has had an enormous workload in his career and the wheels could always come off at any moment, it's still hard to find many pitchers who you can feel comfortable with give you better all-around numbers.
