Stat Review
How does Adrian Houser compare to other relievers?
This section compares his stats with all relief pitcher seasons from the previous three seasons (minimum 30 innings)*. The bar represents the player's percentile rank. For example, if the bar is halfway across, then the player falls into the 50th percentile for that stat and it would be considered average.

* Exit Velocity, Barrels/BBE %, Balls Hit 95+ MPH %, and Spin Rate are benchmarked against this season's data (min 20 IP). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Houser was just one of the many former Astros plucked away to Milwaukee by new(ish) Brewers general manager David Stearns, who worked under Jeff Luhnow in Houston's front office. Despite a 5.25 ERA, Houser had solid peripherals in his first 13 starts of 2016 down at Double-A, thanks to an acceptable 56:22 K:BB over 70.1 innings. Unfortunately his season was ended by Tommy John surgery in July, which will keep him out for most, if not all of 2017. He turns 24 in February, so Houser will have time to get his career back on track. However, this is a very untimely development for Houser, whose performance in the 2015 Arizona Fall League had many believing he could be a part of the Brewers future plans sooner rather than later. His likely future role is a back-of-the-rotation arm or middle reliever, so given the elbow surgery, he can be ignored in almost all dynasty leagues.
The Brewers received Houser as part of the deal that sent Carlos Gomez to the Astros at the trade deadline in July. Houser struggled at Double-A in the Astros system, as hitters tagged him for six home runs in five starts. Things cleared up for him after the trade, as Houser struck out 32 batters in 37 innings for the Brewers and went on to pitch a solid 25.1 innings (3.51 ERA, 19 strikeouts) in the Arizona Fall League. He has a big fastball that reaches into the upper-90s and that gives the Brewers reason to dream on his upside, but he has yet to show the control or command of a secondary pitch that he'll need to succeed as a starter. He'll likely begin 2016 with another tour of Double-A.
