Astros: 2022 Steamer Projections for Starting Rotation
5 of 8
Justin Verlander: 12-9, 3.62 ERA, 1.09 WHIP
Justin Verlander will be 39-years-old on Opening Day and has pitched six innings over the last two seasons. Given those two things this isn’t an outrageous projection for me, though I’m more optimistic.
Verlander’s 3.33 career ERA and 1.13 career WHIP are in the ballpark and he’s almost certainly going to be treated with kid gloves through the first part of 2022.
