Astros' David Paulino: Healthy for spring training
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Paulino indicated Wednesday that he's recovered from September surgery to remove a bone spur from his pitching elbow, Hunter Atkins of the Houston Chronicle reports.

One of the top pitching prospects in the organization last season, Paulino's stock dipped a bit after he was tagged for a 6.52 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and eight home runs over 29 innings in six starts with the big club before he was handed an 80-game suspension in July for violating MLB's performance-enhancing drug policy. Paulino acknowledged that he used the illegal substance in large part to combat the effects of a nagging elbow injury, which surgery ultimately remedied. After missing out on important development time due to the suspension, Paulino isn't expected to break camp with the Astros and looks likely to open the season as a member of the rotation at Triple-A Fresno.

Astros' David Paulino: Moved to DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Paulino was placed on the 60-day disabled list with a bone spur on Sunday, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Paulino's suspension was lifted Sunday, but he was promptly moved to the 60-day disabled list so that he didn't have to be put back on the 40-man roster. Paulino had the bone spur removed from his elbow Friday, and the team anticipates that he'll be in full health once spring training arrives.

Astros' David Paulino: Suspended for 80 games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Paulino was suspended after testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

The right-hander will be suspended for the rest of the regular season after testing positive for Boldenone. He recently got hammered during his outing Wednesday, giving up seven earned runs of seven hits, but added eight strikeouts over the course of four innings. Paulino was likely going to head to the bullpen once a couple of Houston's starting pitchers came back from the DL, but now he be out the rest of the pennant chase and will not appeal his suspension.

Astros' David Paulino: Blasted by A's for four homers, seven runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Paulino gave up seven runs on seven hits -- four of which left the yard -- over four innings against Oakland on Wednesday. He struck out eight without a walk, though he also threw a wild pitch.

The 6-foot-7 righty just caught a bit too much of the plate in this one, doubling his total homers allowed this year in the process. Paulino's 34:7 K:BB in 29 innings is impressive, but his ratios aren't because he's been rather inconsistent. Just 23 years old, Paulino possesses enticing upside with his huge frame, decent velocity and solid off-speed offerings. While he could ultimately end up in the bullpen, he has the build and the stuff to start, so it's worth watching how he progresses as the season wears on.

Astros' David Paulino: Remains in rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Paulino will remain in Houston's starting rotation after the Astros demoted Joe Musgrove to Triple-A Fresno on Saturday, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports. He'll start Wednesday at home against Oakland.

With Saturday's activation of Lance McCullers, it looked like either Paulino or fellow prospect Francis Martes would head back to the minor leagues, but the decision to demote Musgrove means Paulino stays in Houston. The 6-foot-7 right-hander sports a 5.04 ERA over five starts in the majors, but has won two consecutive starts and should get at least two more starts before Musgrove is eligible to be called back up to Houston.
