    Tigers How many more no hitters will Verlander throw in his career?

    He's up to two for his career. It seems like it won't be the last cause the man is a classic power arm and he's consistent and mostly durable. Hey, he throws mid 90's to 100mph in the freaking 9th, there's always a chance right?

    I think he has the capability of throwing more. But with the amount of luck and help needed to get a no-hitter I have trouble predicting more than 1 more.

    I don't think so, GiantsFanatic. Throwing a no-hitter requires a lot of luck, also. Verlander is a strike-thrower, so hitters will swing at the first fastball they see, and some will put it in play. If they put the ball in play, there is a very good chance it will find a hole in the defense and they will get a hit.
