Adrian Houser pitched in four games for the 2019 San Antonio Missions – all starts. He had a 2-0 record with a 1.27 ERA in the Missions’ only season in the Triple-A Pacific Coast League.
The 6-foot-3 right-hander is expected to be a part of the Milwaukee Brewers’ starting rotation when this season starts.
Houser was a second-round draft pick by the Houston Astros in 2011 and was sent to the Brewers in July 2015 as part of a six-player trade. He made his major league debut in 2015, making two relief appearances for the Brewers.
After starting 2019 with the Missions, he was called up to Milwaukee on May 3 and appeared in 35 games for the Brewers that summer including 18 starts. He finished the season with a 6-7 record with a 3.72 ERA in 111 1/3 innings.
In the covid-shortened 2020 season, Houser started 11 games and made one relief appearance. He recorded a 1-6 record with a 5.30 ERA in 56 innings.
