Justin Verlander will turn 40-years old in February. Nevertheless, the 2022 Cy Young hopeful will receive plenty of interest on the MLB free agent market. But where should Verlander sign in what could be the final contract of his historic career. There are 3 teams that standout as good fits for Verlander.

One team is an obvious choice. The second team would provide Verlander with a strong chance of winning another World Series. And the final best free agency destination is a long shot ball club. Without further ado, here are the 3 best free agency destinations for Justin Verlander.


Justin Verlander’s return to Houston

The Houston Astros have to be included on this list. Verlander has continued to dominate with the ‘Stros and is fresh off of a World Series championship. The star right-hander exorcised his World Series demons with an impressive outing in the Fall Classic, and Houston would love to have him back in the rotation.

Verlander was headed toward a downward spiral with the Detroit Tigers in 2017. It seemed as if the days of him being considered an ace were over. However, he found his footing once again after being traded from Detroit to Houston ahead of the 2017 trade deadline. The Astros’ 2017 World Series championship is obviously disputed by many, but Verlander played a pivotal role in their success regardless.

It would not be surprising to see Justin Verlander back in Houston next season.
