Tigers' Justin Verlander is geeked out over his brother Ben's pitching accomplishments

Ben Verlander

Ben Verlander has had an eventful season so far. It started in spring training when he took his All-Star brother deep. Then, on Friday, Ben was called on to pitch the eighth inning of their blowout loss to the Bradenton Marauders. Ben showed some Vintage Verlander pitches when he threw a scoreless frame. Justin took notice.

It should be interesting to see what Ben does for an encore. Is there a starting pitching gig in his future? No, no there is not, but we will take some more home runs.
