NEW YORK -- Right-hander Adrian Houser argued his salary arbitration case against Milwaukee on Wednesday, asking a three-man panel for $3 million while the Brewers argued for $2,425,000. The case was heard remotely by arbitrators Howard Edelman, Mark Burstein and Robert Herzog. A decision is not expected for several weeks.
Houser (3-2) earned the win Thursday, allowing four earned runs on seven hits and one walk across five innings in a 10-5 win over the Reds. He struck out six. Houser struggled out of the gate, allowing four singles and three runs in the top of the first, but the 29-year-old was able to settle down and tossed back-to-back scoreless innings after the bumpy start. Tyler Stephenson tagged Houser for a solo shot in the fourth and another run came around to score in the fifth, but it wasn't charged to Hauser due to a throwing error from Omar Narvaez. Thanks to another dominant showing from the Brewers' offense, Houser didn't need his best stuff to earn a third straight win.
If the question is who the best Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher since the midpoint of last season, Adrian Houser has to be firmly in the conversation. Sure, the right-hander may not have the eye-popping arsenal or high-end velocity of some of his peers, but his numbers speak for themselves. ...
Houser (2-2) picked up the win Friday, scattering two hits and three walks over six scoreless innings in an 11-1 victory over the Cubs. He struck out six. The 29-year-old right-hander let only one Chicago runner even reach second base, while his offense supported him with six homers. Houser has delivered back-to-back quality starts and sports a 2.53 ERA through 21.1 innings, but his 18.4 percent strikeout rate and 11.5 percent walk rate suggest he's been more lucky than good so far.
Houser (1-2) picked up the win in Saturday's 5-3 victory over the Phillies, allowing three runs on five hits and a walk over six innings. He struck out three. Philadelphia grabbed a 3-0 lead through three innings, but Houser was able to settle down in the middle frames and give Milwaukee's offense a chance to get rolling. The 29-year-old right-hander tossed 58 of 85 pitches for strikes before exiting as he recorded his first quality start of the season, and he generated seven groundball outs versus zero flyball outs -- a pattern he'll need to continue to have success given his lack of whiffs (15.6 percent strikeout rate through 15.1 innings).
