Astros again turn to rookie in matchup with D-backs

Houston ace right-hander Justin Verlander on Saturday announced that he will undergo Tommy John surgery, ending his bid to return to the rotation from a previously diagnosed forearm strain.

While certainly a stunning blow to the Astros, with one week left in the regular season and Houston in the midst of a playoff push, there is little time to lament. Instead, the Astros will give the ball Jose Urquidy on Sunday and ask him to win the rubber match of a three-game set at home against Arizona.

As for Verlander, he made just one start this season before landing on the 10-day injured list July 25.
