Houser (3-4) allowed two runs on two hits and five walks over three innings Friday, striking out three and taking a loss against Atlanta.
Three of Houser's five walks came during the third inning before Austin Riley plated a pair of runs with a single. He threw just 32 of 65 pitches for strikes in his shortest outing of the season. The 28-year-old righty now owns a 3.63 ERA and a 34:16 K:BB. Houser is projected to take the mound in Cincinnati next weekend.
Houser (3-3) picked up the win Saturday, allowing two runs on five hits over six innings in a 6-2 victory over the Marlins. He struck out 10 without walking a batter.
The right-hander not only took care of business on the mound, throwing 62 of 94 pitches for strikes in his second straight quality start, he also aided his own cause at the plate with a solo shot off Daniel Castano in the fourth inning. Houser will take a 3.44 ERA and 31:11 K:BB through 36.2 innings into his next outing.
Houser (2-3) took the loss after surrendering four runs (two earned) on four hits and a walk while striking out two over six innings Monday night against the Phillies.
Houser gave up a two-run blast in the bottom of the first inning and two unearned runs in the second following a throwing error by shortstop Luis Urias, but he managed to settle down from there. He retired 14 of the last 15 batters before being removed from the contest. Houser owns a 3.52 ERA and 1.30 WHIP with a 21:11 K:BB across 30.2 frames in 2021.
Houser's next start was pushed to Monday in Philadelphia, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Eric Lauer was recalled to start Thursday against the Dodgers, which pushes the rest of the Brewers starters back a day.
Houser (2-2) allowed three runs on five hits and a walk while striking out seven over 5.2 innings in a win over the Marlins on Tuesday. He also went 1-for-1 at the plate with a solo home run in the second inning.
Houser allowed the leadoff batter to get on base in five of the six innings he came out for but was able to limit the damage enough to pick up the win. The Marlins got to him for a run in the first, fourth and fifth innings but he was able to punch out a season-high seven hitters and has held the opposing offense to three runs or less in all five starts this season. He'll take a 3.65 ERA into his next start.
Houser allowed two earned runs on five hits and two walks while striking out two across 4.2 innings in the win Wednesday against the Padres. He did not factor in the decision.
Houser was able to limit the Padres to just one run in the third and fourth innings after allowing a leadoff double in both innings. Other than that, he slid past the Padres in 4.2 innings of minimal damage. The 28-year-old has the worst ERA amongst Brewers starters despite sporting a respectable 3.32 figurethrough 19 innings. His next start will come at home Tuesday against the Marlins.
Houser (1-2) gave up three runs on five hits and a walk over 4.1 innings Friday to take the loss as the Brewers fell 6-1 to the Pirates. He struck out three.
The right-hander gave up a solo shot to Colin Moran in the second inning before allowing two leadoff singles to begin the fifth, and Houser had to watch both runners come around to score after he got the hook. He threw 41 of 73 pitches for strikes, and while his 3.14 ERA through three starts is solid, it isn't backed up by his 1.53 WHIP or 10:7 K:BB through 14.1 innings. Houser will look for a better result in his next outing Wednesday in San Diego.
Houser (1-1) earned the win Saturday at St. Louis after giving up one unearned run on six hits with three strikeouts and four walks over five innings.
The right-hander wasn't especially sharp as he threw only 49 of 81 pitches for strikes, but he was able to limit the Cardinals to one unearned run. Houser has given up two runs on 10 hits with a 7:6 K:BB across 10 innings through two starts this season, and he's projected to pitch against the Pirates next weekend.
Houser (0-1) gave up two runs on four hits and two walks over five innings in a loss to the Twins on Sunday. He struck out four.
Houser was just decent in his season debut. The Twins played some small ball to scrape together a run in the first, and Mitch Garver added a solo shot in the fifth on Houser's watch. The 28-year-old right-hander enters 2021 with a shaky grasp on a spot in the rotation after he posted a 5.30 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 44:21 K:BB across 56 innings in 2020. Houser will need to tighten things up on the mound or else risk a demotion to the bullpen. He lines up for his next start Saturday in St. Louis.
Houser is slated to start the Brewers' third game of the season April 4 against the Twins, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
The back end of the Milwaukee rotation was unsettled heading into spring training, but Houser, Brett Anderson and Freddy Peralta were able to lock up the final three spots, resulting in Josh Lindblom moving to the bullpen and Eric Lauer and Jordan Zimmermann getting demoted to minor-league camp. Houser may not head into Opening Day with much job security, however, coming off a 2020 campaign in which he saw his strikeout rate plummet steeply and his ERA climb by nearly a run and a half from 2019. He didn't restore much faith over his five starts this spring, giving up 12 runs (11 earned) on 19 hits and five walks over 12 frames.
Houser (thumb) will serve as the Brewers' starting pitcher in Wednesday's Cactus League game against the Rockies, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Houser previously experienced some right thumb discomfort in his third spring outing March 14, but he was able to stay on turn and pitch through the issue in Milwaukee's 9-3 win over the Diamondbacks. He covered 3.1 innings and gave up three runs on six hits and two walks in that outing, so the Brewers may be looking for him to build up for 4-to-5 innings Wednesday. Houser may need a strong showing against Colorado to bolster his case for an Opening Day rotation spot, as Freddy Peralta, Josh Lindblom and Brett Anderson may rank ahead of him in the pecking order for back-end starting roles.
Houser (thumb) is expected to be fine after leaving Sunday's spring game against the Mariners, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports.
Houser was diagnosed with right thumb discomfort after leaving Sunday's game, but manager Craig Counsell said that the injury is more like a cramp. The right-hander could be shut down for a few days, but the issue isn't expected to impact his availability for Opening Day.
Houser exited Sunday's spring game against the Mariners due to right thumb discomfort.
Houser was sharp in Sunday's start but was removed from the game with two outs in the second inning. It's not yet clear whether the right-hander will be forced to miss additional time as a result of the injury.
Houser left Sunday's spring start against the Mariners with an apparent injury, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Houser had an awkward follow through with two outs in the third inning Sunday, and he exited the game after a short visit with a trainer. The nature and severity of the injury isn't yet known. Prior to his departure, Houser allowed no runs and two walks while striking out one over 2.2 scoreless innings.
Houser allowed one earned run over 1.2 innings in Tuesday's spring game against the Giants. He gave up three hits and posted a 4:0 K:BB in the contest.
Houser was not particularly sharp Tuesday, and he was removed from the game in the first inning after reaching his pitch limit. Due to the revised rules, though, he re-entered in the second inning and struck out the side after allowing a home run to the first batter in the frame. Houser has held his own up to this point of the spring, which gives him up a leg up in the competition for the fifth spot in the Brewers' starting rotation.
Houser (1-6) was charged with four runs (three earned) on five hits over 4.1 innings in a loss to the Reds on Wednesday. He struck out five and issued one walk.
The long ball did Houser in; he gave up a two-run homer to Joey Votto in the first inning and a solo shot to Jesse Winker in the fourth. Houser had some hype coming into the season, but he ends his 2020 regular-season campaign with 1-6 record, 5.40 ERA, 1.51 WHIP, 44:21 K:BB and .284 BAA in 55 innings. He may have to fight for a rotation spot in the spring.
Houser allowed four runs (two earned) on five hits and two walks while striking out two over four innings in a no-decision versus the Royals on Friday.
Houser's struggles were not his fault alone -- the Brewers defense did him few favors -- but he was in line for the loss when he exited. The Brewers' six-run rally in the bottom of the fourth allowed Houser to escape the outing with no damage to his record. The 27-year-old now has a 5.33 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and 39 strikeouts in 50.2 innings this season. He's failed to pitch more than five innings in each of his last five starts. Houser's next start is expected to be Wednesday in Cincinnati.
Houser (1-5) allowed seven runs (two earned) on four hits and four walks while striking out five across four innings to take the loss Sunday against the Cubs.
Houser held the Cubs scoreless through three innings. However, a combination of poor control and shoddy defense resulted in seven runs crossing the plate over the next 12 batters Houser faced. Though it's hard to see in the overall line, there were promising aspects of the effort for Houser, as he generated 15 swinging strikes on 100 total pitches. Even so, it was another disappointing result, as Houser now has a 5.40 ERA with a 37:18 K:BB across 46.2 frames for the season. He's in line to take his next turn through the rotation Friday against Kansas City.
Houser (1-4) took the loss against Detroit on Tuesday, pitching 4.2 innings and allowing five runs on four hits and two walks while striking out six.
Houser opened with three scoreless frames but was unable to complete five innings for the second time in his last three starts as the Marlins chased him in the fifth. To his credit, the right-hander was able to retire two batters in his final frame but left the bases loaded and was charged with three runs after he departed. Houser began the season with two strong starts but has been mediocre since, allowing 25 earned runs over 30.2 innings. He'll try to turn things around against St. Louis on Monday in his next scheduled start.
Houser gave up five runs on nine hits and a walk and struck out two over five innings in a no-decision versus the Tigers on Wednesday.
Houser didn't allow a homer, but that was about the extent of the positives Wednesday. He allowed nine hits for his third straight start. The 27-year-old saw his ERA rise to 4.97 with a 1.47 WHIP and 26 strikeouts across 38 innings. He still carries a 1-3 record into his next start, which lines up for next Wednesday in a rematch with the Tigers.
