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 throws three scoreless in Thursday's intrasquad game

Justin Verlander didn't allow a run while pitching three innings during an intrasquad game on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

The 37-year-old reportedly unleashed a new delivery and felt "fantastic" afterwards. Verlander has already dealt with a groin injury and a lat strain this year but should be ready to go come Opening Day. He's understandably a risky bet as a top-five starter in average draft position. Still, just last year he posted a 2.58 ERA with 300 strikeouts in 223 innings pitched.
