RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for James Houser.

2009

Houser underwent knee surgery in early July and returned to action in late August; he looked good at season's end, allowing just one run in eight innings (two hits, six walks, seven strikeouts). He'll start 2009 at Triple-A, and could be considered as a rotation option (or valuable trade bait) by 2010.

2008

Houser was handed a 50-game suspension for steroid use in August, which means he won't see game action until May. Still, the Rays thought enough of his talent to save him a 40-man roster spot despite the suspension. Once he returns, he'll spend 2008 in the Triple-A rotation and could get a chance to break into the bigs the following year.

2007

That's a misleadingly high ERA for Houser last season. The great strikeout rate and low WHIP show his true potential. We'll know a lot more about that after his stint at Double-A this season.

2006

That's a misleadingly high ERA for Houser last season; the great strikeout rate and low WHIP show his true potential. We'll know a lot more about that after his stint at High-A, and possibly Double-A, this season.

2004
