Verlander responds after Astros deny Tigers reporter access

  • Houston Astros starting pitcher Justin Verlander will start for the American League All Stars in the 2019 MLB All Star game on Tuesday

"Unethical behavior in the past", is the reason Houston Astros pitcher Justin Verlander gave for not speaking with a Detroit Free Press reporter after Wednesday's game. On Tuesday, Verlander refused to speak to a group of reporters while Fenech was present.

"Blocking a working reporter from doing his job is unprofessional, disappointing and intolerable", Free Press executive editor Peter Bhatia said.

The move appears to violate MLB rules governing media access, which are also enshrined in the collective bargaining agreement between the league and the players' union.

"Per our Club-Media Regulations, the reporter should have been allowed to enter the clubhouse postgame at the same time as the other members of the media".

The corridor would allow people to leave the southern part of Idlib and the north of Hama. A Turkish observation post in the village of Morek was also under siege.

Verlander has had verbal disagreements with Fenech in the past.

On Wednesday, Verlander went the distance in a 2-1 loss to the Tigers, his former team.

Verlander responded to the Free Press story Thursday in a pair of tweets, explaining that he declined to speak with Fenech due to past "unethical behaviour". Fenech has covered the Tigers for the Free Press since 2015, so he and Verlander are familiar with one another. The paper, however, said it had not been contacted by Verlander as of noon on Thursday and has offered to interview him.
