On Monday, the Dodgers met with free agent pitcher Justin Verlander and according to Jon Morosi, it looks as if he thinks Verlander and the Dodgers are the perfect match.
Here is what he said on MLB Network:
I do believe the Dodgers are among the strongest candidates to sign Verlander. And indeed, when you think about this report, and credit to Jon Heyman for being first on this story, with Verlander now meeting with the Dodgers, the Astros investing a lot of money in Jose Abreu and really trusting some of their internal options..Quite simply, their need for Verlander is less than the Dodgers need for Verlander.
He obviously does have a lot of family connections out there, I think it would be a very comfortable place for him to live and begin this third act of his major league career.
