 LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) - LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) - The number most people associate with Justin Verlander is 20 - as in, will he reach 20 wins? On Wednesday, the focus was 30 - as in the 30th birthday of the Detroit Tigers' ace.
The 2006 AL Rookie of the Year, and 2011 AL Cy Young Award winner and MVP, finished his 20s with a 124-65 record and 3.40. He's won two AL pennants but fallen short of a World Series title each time.
Verlander can see himself pitching into his 40s. He's never sustained a serious arm injury and can still hit 100 mph on the radar.
