Justin Verlander was the topic of numerous trade rumors before the July 31 MLB trade deadline passed, but he ultimately wound up staying in Detroit.
Verlander could still be on the move this month after clearing revocable waivers. According to MLB Network, the Tigers and Astros are still holding trade discussions regarding the six-time All-Star ace.
Sunday’s game was paused as Beltre’s family joined him on the diamond and his teammates rubbed his head, this time he couldn’t care less as Globe Life Park gave him a standing ovation despite trailing the Orioles 4-0.
Beltre is the fifth international player to reach the milestone and is the first player to collect his 3,000th MLB hit since former Mariners outfielder Ichiro Suzuki tripled on August 7, 2016. Before Suzuki, Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez achieved the feat on June 19, 2015.

A four-time All-Star and five-time Gold Glove third baseman, Beltre, 38, recorded his first 949 hits over seven seasons with the Dodgers. After five seasons in Seattle and an All-Star year in Boston, Beltre has been on a tear with the Rangers since joining the club in 2011.
After reaching the milestone, Beltre will now turn his focus to helping the Rangers clinch a wild-card spot.
Albert Pujols is on pace to become the 32nd player in MLB history to join the 3,000-hit club later this season or the beginning of next, adding to his impressive Hall of Fame resume.
