The Houston Astros have once again run away with their division. They hold an 11-game lead in the AL West over the Seattle Mariners and will (likely) soon lock up the #1 seed in the American League.

Houston already has 4 starting pitchers with over 10 wins this season including Justin Verlander who has been pitching lights out this year. He holds a 1.84 ERA and 16-3 win-loss record. This bodes well for Houston Astros pitching prospect Hunter Brown who just made his debut with the team.

Hunter Brown made his MLB debut on Labor Day with the Houston Astros and blew fans away. His stats were great. Hunter Brown went 6 innings with 5 strikeouts, 0.667 WHIP, and gave up 0 earned runs. But it’s Hunter’s pitching motion that completely flew the baseball world away.

Houston Astros pitching prospect Hunter Brown made his debut. He blew fans away with an identical pitching motion to 2-time Cy Young Award winner Justin Verlander.

24-year-old Hunter Brown was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan. Justin Verlander pitched for the Detroit Tigers from 2005-2017. Verlander was Hunter’s favorite pitcher and he mirrored his pitching motion based on the 2-time Cy Young Award winner.

Here they are side-by-side:

Here is Hunter Brown and Justin Verlander next to each other:

Baseball fans were loving Hunter’s debut.

Justin Verlander is currently on the 15-day IL but he was there to cheer on Hunter in his debut:

There’s no telling what the longevity form Hunter Brown will look like but based on mechanics, yes, he is Verlander Jr.

Time flies! He was SIX when Verlander started pitching for the Tigers.

It is wild that Justin Verlander went to the IL so they rolled out his clone:

Verlander. Justin Verlander is better…

It was a magical debut night for Hunter. The Houston Astros got the 1-0 win over the Texas Rangers. 6’2″, 212-pound Brown blew Houston’s fans away.

Based on mechanics alone, he’s going to be a beast for years to come in the MLB.
