The Astros front office may have a new plan for Verlander in 2020


Justin Verlander will be 37 years old when the 2020 season starts for the Astros, and he seemed to be a little tired when the playoffs came around this past year.

The Astros might be better off limiting some of Verlander's innings during the regular season, so that he can go deeper in playoff games in 2020.

ESPN 97.5's Joel Blank weighs in on how the Astros should manage Verlander this season, and much more. Point Blank is presented by Fitz Roofing.
