YearComment
2013 Acquired from Kansas City for cash considerations in November, Hottovy is a lefty reliever who attacks hitters from a low arm slot. The 31-year-old has just 13 1/3 career innings in the big leagues, but he could still carve out a niche as a specialist. Triple-A left-handers batted just .147/.190/.227 against him last season. Given the Rangers' current stable of short-inning southpaws, he'll likely begin 2013 at Triple-A as LOOGY depth.
2012 Tommy Hottovy, besides being the answer to the question, "What's a Tommy Hottovy?", is also left-handed. This has been another episode of "Tommy Hottovy And You." Join us next week when we tell you he is probably stuck in the minors forever.
2007 Tommy Hottovy fared better in a repeat of Wilmington after the Sox devoted a season to remaking the 2004 fourth-rounder`s delivery. The extremely His extremely low percentage of his fly balls that become home runs (2.3) screams for a correction, though.
