Justin Verlander has been one of the most dominant pitchers in all of Major League Baseball. Verlander was drafted in 2005 & made his debut in 2006, winning AL Rookie of the Year & leading the Tigers to the World Series.
In his second year in the big leagues – 2007 – he pitched his first no-hitter & the first ever in the 7-year history of Comerica Park. He threw it against the Milwaukee Brewers, recording 12 strikeouts & walking 4 batters during the historic game.
2011 was a career year for Verlander, winning the AL Cy Young Award & the MVP – the first pitcher in history to win the Rookie of the Year, Cy Young Award & the MVP in their career.
In 2012, Verlander had another dominant year, finishing second in the AL Cy Young race to David Price & leading the Tigers to another World Series. As his career as gone on, JV has worked to cement himself as one of the top pitchers in Detroit Tigers history & possibly one of the best of all-time.
He has 173 wins & 2,197 strikeouts for his career going into the upcoming 2017 season. Verlander is known for having one of the best fastballs, curveballs & a dominant 12-6 curveball that can buckle a player quickly.
The Detroit Tigers Justin Verlander autographed jersey is a key part of anyone’s Detroit sports memorabilia collection due to the fact that it may be years before another pitcher of Verlander’s caliber comes through again with the same dominant style.
