The man is nearly unhittable on the mound. He is the reigning MVP and Cy Young winner in the American League. His team, the Detroit Tigers, are currently playing the New York Yankees for the American League spot in the World Series. If you already are jealous of him, prepare to be even more.

For months there was speculation about who the ace pitcher was dating. He was linked to one of the most beautiful women in the entire world, Kate Upton, but he always denied it. An unlikely source has stepped forward to confirm that these two are most certainly an item. Robert Verlander Sr., Justin’s grandfather, has said that two are mostly certainly seeing each other. “I heard he has been on dates with a Sports Illustrated girl. I saw a photo – she’s beautiful. They make a good looking pair because he’s a good looking man too. I do know he’s on the dating scene. Justin is a fine boy and whoever he ends up with is lucky. He’s not only a great baseball player, he’s a great guy.” Aw, well it certainly sounds official if the grandparents are aware of it. For those who do not exactly know who Kate Upton is, please see the gallery below and hold the drool.
