BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2013 A second-round pick in 2011, Adrian Houser really utilized his repeat stint in rookie ball, refining control on both his sharp curve and his heavy fastball that makes up for substandard velocity with good movement.
2012 The Astros were happy that 2011 second-round pick Adrian Houser signed quickly—he has a pitcher's body, an advanced feel for pitching, and is young enough that his fastball could eventually sit higher than the 91 mph it's at now.
