Verlander throws four pitches: a hard four-seam fastball averaging 94–95 mph (topping out at 102), a slider in the mid-to-high 80s, a 12–6 curveball around 80, and a changeup at 85–88 mph. His four-seam fastball has an “elite” spin rate of over 2500 rpm according to Statcast, giving it a late “tailing” action that cuts inside to righties and away from lefties.
He often uses his four-seam fastball up in the zone to hitters. This has allowed him to strike out more batters with that pitch than any others. His slider has evolved throughout his career. In his early years, his slider was in the mid-80s with a larger break. However, in recent years, Verlander has added velocity to his slider. This change has caused a later, sharper break that has led many to believe it is actually a cutter, although Verlander has denied this on various occasions.
In 2016, Verlander started the “Wins For Warriors Foundation” for veterans of the United States military. The “Wins For Warriors Foundation” campaign raised $246,311 to help Houston recover from Hurricane Harvey in 2017. To date, Verlander has donated over 1 million dollars to this cause. Verlander has also supported various local Detroit charities for the impoverished as well as helping out with national efforts such as the Red Cross.
