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) resumes throwing off a mound

Justin Verlander (groin) posted an Instagram video of him throwing from a mound.

Fantasy Impact

Verlander, who suffered a lat strain in early March, eventually underwent groin surgery in mid-March. He normally would've had to begin the 2020 season on the injured list but should now be ready to go whenever things get underway this summer. Despite his advanced age of 37, Verlander will once again be one of the first SPs to come off draft boards this year.
