The ScoreThe ageless Verlander is doing it again - but now with an evolved approach

Justin Verlander turned 39 in February. He entered the season as the ninth-oldest player in the majors; on the mound, he's younger than only Rich Hill and Adam Wainwright.Verlander's also returning from Tommy John surgery. He suffered a torn UCL in his first start of the shortened 2020 season.Moreover, there were questions about how Verlander, who long lived at the top of the strike zone with a high-spin, four-seam fastball, would respond to MLB's crackdown on the sticky stuff. Less spin means less movement, and with a fastball, it means less rise. He missed the initial policing last year, and this season his average fastball rpm sits at a Statcast-era low (2,400 rpm), down about 200 rpms from its peak in 2018 (2,618 rpm) and from 2019 (2,577) - when Verlander won his second and most recent Cy Young Award.In other words, there was a lot of uncertainty around the veteran entering the season. Bob Levey / Getty Images Sport / GettyHe's responded by pitching like he's still in his prime.Sixteen seasons into his career, Verlander is maintaining an elite level of performance. Entering his start Saturday for the first-place Houston Astros, Verlander is second in the majors in ERA (1.38), trailing only New York Yankees breakout lefty Nestor Cortes (1.35). He's on track for a 4-plus WAR season if he maintains his present pace (1.2 WAR). While he'll be hard-pressed to duplicate the best pitching year from a 39-year-old - Phil Niekro's 1978 campaign (8.6 WAR) - Verlander's on track for a top-10 all-time performance by an age-39 pitcher.Moreover, MLB.com writer polling this week has Verlander as the favorite for the American League Cy Young Award. Verlander also leads AL pitchers in gScore, a metric tracked by theScore features editor Guy Spurrier that ranks starting pitchers by a variety of categories to evaluate their total contributions:!function(){"use strict";window.addEventListener("message",(function(e){if(void 0!==e.data["datawrapper-height"]){var t=document.querySelectorAll("iframe");for(var a in e.data["datawrapper-height"])for(var r=0;r
