    Verlander will start Game 6 of the ALCS against the Yankees on Friday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

    Impact

    This is why Houston acquired Verlander at the end of August. With the Astros down 3-2 in a best-of-seven set, Verlander will get the ball as he looks to keep the team's World Series hopes alive. He tossed a complete game gem in Game 2 of the ALCS against New York, striking out 13 batters and allowing just one run on five hits and a walk to earn the win.

    News

    Verlander was named the starter for Game 2 of the ALCS on Saturday, MLB.com's Brian McTaggart reports.

    Impact

    Dallas Keuchel will take the mound for Game 1 as the two pitchers switch spots in the order for this series, following Verlander's relief appearance during Game 4 of the ALDS against the Red Sox on Monday. The right-hander should be well-rested and ready to go, and will likely be in line for a Game 6 start on Oct. 20, if the series lasts that long.
