Who is Justin Verlander and how long has he been with the Houston Astros?
Born February 20, 1983, Justin Brooks Verlander is an American professional baseball pitcher for the Houston Astros of Major League Baseball.
The 35-year-old is a seven-time MLB All-Star and scooped his first career ring for the 2017 World Series.
For his performance in the 2017 American League Championship Series, he was named MVP and became the co-winner of the Babe Ruth Award for most outstanding performance.
However, Justin made his name during his time playing for the Detroit Tigers for 13 seasons, with whom he made his major league debut in 2005 before he was bought by Houston last year.

What is his net worth?
Justin is one of the highest paid Baseball players in the world as well as being one of the richest American athletes.
His 2013 contract stipulated that the former Tigers ace pitcher is expected to earn $180m over seven years, which was at the time the biggest contract for a pitcher ever.
It also includes a vesting option meaning if Justin reaches certain incentives throughout his contract then the eventual value of the deal will contain an extra $22m for his eighth year.
His incredibly successful baseball career means Justin has an estimated net worth of $15 million.
