Aiming to return to the World Series after a two-year drought, the Los Angeles Dodgers are looking to add a pitcher who recently another ring to his trophy case. After signing with the Houston Astros in free agency a year ago, Justin Verlander is once again on the open market.
Only, unlike last season, where teams may have felt cautious about signing the nine-time MLB All-Star to a big contract after he worked his way back from Tommy John surgery, a bigger market is expected to emerge for the 39-year-old former MVP.
One of the teams eager to meet with Verlander includes the Dodgers, who are set for a face-to-face with the starting pitcher on Monday, according to Jon Heyman. It is unknown exactly what type of offer Verlander is seeking this time around, but the Dodgers would appear to be a strong fit.
