Pitcher Justin Verlander and the Houston Astros are reportedly working on a contract extension.  The reported deal is for two years and $66 million.  The 36-year-old went 16-9 last season with a 2.52 ERA over 214 innings.

Verlander obviously can still pitch at a very high level.  Astros owner Jim Crane revealed on Friday that he wants to have a new deal in place before the end of spring training.
