Justin Verlander opened up about how Kate Upton helped save him

Kate Upton saved Justin verlander depression

As athletes, you're not supposed to. She saved his career. "She was someone I could talk to".

Astros pitcher Justin Verlander became the latest player to do so in a feature in Bleacher Report Magazine where he talked about his relationship with Kate Uptonand how she pulled him out of a dark place four years ago, along with how that shaped him into the pitcher he is now. "She was instrumental in me not ... like, jumping off a bridge", Verlander said. "I mean, basically a therapist", he says.

'Somebody I could trust with ... worries about my career. Worries about, Can I make it? And just the overall sh*ttiness of it all'.

Kate recalled of the time: 'It was so emotional.

Upton understood him. And she had a combination of qualities that could help him through his ordeal.

Very powerful stuff from Verlander, who, thanks to Upton's help, got healthy and has had quite a renassaince, going 11-6 with a 2.19 ERA this season after going 5-0 with a 1.06 ERA for Houston last season following his late-season trade from Detroit. "I mean, being a woman?" Being in that industry? The low point came when he cried after a bad outing in Pittsburgh, believing his shoulder was shot and his career was over. "Being that famous? That was a level I hadn't dealt with". "As a woman, you learn to always question everything everyone is telling you". We can't depend on anyone.

Elsewhere in the interview, Upton revealed the moment she won over her future in-laws was when she was caring for him after a 2012 surgery, and dedicated herself to solving the constipation that was a side effect of the procedure.

Obviously still affected by the memories, Justin's voice started to break when he told the interviewer: 'I really thought it was the end. He made his first All-Star game since 2013 last season, and capped off a terrific season by playing major part in the Astros' World Series triumph over the LA Dodgers.

These days, the pair have tied the knot and are expecting their first child together.
