Earlier this week, Justin Verlander accepted a 2-year, $50 million offer from the Houston Astros but that was not the only offer he had on the table.
According to a report from Jon Heyman, the New York Yankees offered Verlander $25 million for one year but JV said no.
Yankees offered Verlander $25M 1-year deal. Solid offer but weren’t going to beat the $50M 2-year deal with opt out he got from Astros
