Kate Upton and Justin Verlander are set to embark on a new chapter in their lives with the New York Mets next season.
Verlander, 39, inked a two-year deal over the offseason worth $86.7 million. As part of that, he also received a $35 million vesting option for 2025.
Before Upton and Verlander could look towards the 2023 MLB season, though – there was still one thing left to celebrate from 2022.
Following a dominating performance with Houston Astros that culminated in another World Series trophy, Verlander also won the Cy Young.
This week, Upton shared the wild party photos from them celebrating the occasion.

Upton is obviously no stranger to making headlines. Between her memorable encounter with a Philadelphia Phillies fan during this year’s playoffs, crazy outfit choices at Astros games and unforgettable beach day photos, it feels like she has been a permanent fixture in the headlines.
This is just the latest example.
As for Verlander, what he was able to accomplish last year is nothing short of remarkable. To come back from the injury-ridden campaign he had faced prior to dominate in the way he did is mind-blowing.

A lot of people thought his career might be done before his most recent run.
Not only was Verlander not done, though – he came back better than ever. By any objective measure, last season marked one of his best ever years from both an individual and team perspective. The man etched his name into the record books once and for all.
Both Upton and Verlander did something incredible in Houston in 2022. Will they be able to replicate the magic in New York in 2023? Time will tell.
