MLB 2K 12 Cover Athlete is Detroit Tiger Justin Verlander

MLB 2K 12 Cover Athlete is Detroit Tiger Justin VerlanderDetroit Tigers ace pitcher Justin Verlander has scored the cover of MLB 2K12 after a dominant season in which he frustrated batters in helping lead his team to the AL Central title.

Justin is a virtual lock to walk away with the Cy Young this year in topping nearly every major pitching category and throwing his second career no hitter. I can think of no better choice to adorn the cover.

The only other news on MLB 2K12 right now is that it’s coming in March 2012 and will be available on Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Nintendo Wii, PS2, PSP, DS and the PC. It will not be available on 3DS per this morning’s press release.

Watch a short tease of Verlander’s announcement using MLB 2K11 in-game assets below.
