The designated hitter has long been a source of controversy in baseball. The American League adopted the rule in 1973 and there have been questions as to whether the National League should finally add it or it should be removed entirely.

On Thursday, Chris Archer of the Tampa Bay Rays asked on Twitter what rule changes his followers would like to see in Major League Baseball.

Justin Verlander replied to Archer, saying: "I'd like to see the AL and NL have the same rules. Same for everyone. I vote NL rules."

In 47 career plate appearances, Verlander has hit .081/.081/.081.
