Pitchers aren't supposed to dominate like this in their mid-30s. In his age-35 campaign, Verlander defied the aging curve by posting a 2.90 ERA, 0.90 WHIP, and MLB-high 34.8 K% in 214 innings. He has recorded a 2.97 ERA over the last three seasons, clearing 200 innings and strikeouts apiece each time. Including the playoffs, he has notched a 2.41 ERA since joining the Astros, so age is the only justification to avoid him as a top-five ace. Don't be afraid to grab him near the end-of-second, early-third round.

Justin Verlander strikes out 10 in final start

Justin Verlander threw six innings of shutout ball as the Astros went on to beat the Orioles 4-3 on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

The 35-year-old struck out 10, walked one, and allowed just three hits. He finishes the year 16-9 with a 2.52 ERA and a 0.90 WHIP. Verlander also struck out 290 batters. It was a truly magnificent season. Although there might be some regression coming in 2019, Verlander should be drafted as a fantasy ace once again.
