Justin Verlander is no longer a member of our beloved Detroit Tigers as he has been traded to the Houston Astros.

JV called the decision one of the toughest he has ever had to make in his entire life. During his time with the Tigers, he made it known time and time again that he loved Detroit and his fans.

On Saturday, Verlander posted one final ‘Thank You” to Detroit on his Instagram.

Thank you #Detroit ❤️ always -JV
