Astros' Cristian Javier: Returns to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Javier was optioned to minor-league camp, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

The 22-year-old was added to the 40-man roster to protect him from the Rule 5 draft in November, and he's set to begin another season in the minors. Javier made his way to Triple-A Round Rock by the end of 2019 and allowed only two runs with a 16:4 K:BB over 11 innings.

Astros' Cristian Javier: Starting spring opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Javier will start Houston's Grapefruit League opener Saturday against the Nationals, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.

Javier will get the ball first for the Astros this spring, with Framber Valdez set to follow him Sunday. The 22-year-old Javier was added to Houston's 40-man roster this offseason in order to protect him from the Rule 5 draft. He notched a 1.74 ERA and 37.3 percent strikeout rate in 113.2 innings across the three highest levels of the minors in 2019, though only 11 of those innings came at the Triple-A level.

Astros' Cristian Javier: Protected from Rule 5 draft
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Javier was added to the Astros' 40-man roster on Wednesday, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.

The move protects the 22-year-old from the upcoming Rule 5 draft. He recorded an excellent 1.74 ERA and a 37.3 percent strikeout rate in 113.2 innings across the three highest levels of the minors last season, though only 11 of those innings came at the Triple-A level, so he may not be a candidate to make the big-league roster just yet.

Astros' Cristian Javier: Earns organizational honors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Javier was named the Astros' Minor League Pitcher of the Year, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Javier, an unheralded prospect to start the season, was promoted three times in 2019, going from Opening Day starter at High-A Fayetteville to eventually landing at Triple-A Round Rock. The 22-year-old right-hander from the Dominican Republic amassed a 1.74 ERA over 113.2 innings while striking out 170 (13.5 K/9) and walking 59. He's possesses a fastball that ranges between 91 and 93 mph, complemented by a slider used as his out pitch. He believes the development of a changeup was the key to his success this season. The Astros are expected to add him to the 40-man roster during the offseason in order to avoid risking exposure in the Rule 5 draft.

Astros' Cristian Javier: Promoted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Javier was promoted to Triple-A Round Rock on Friday.

A 22-year-old righty, Javier has really impressive minor-league numbers, but his future role is still up in the air. He has a 1.75 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 154 strikeouts in 102.2 innings across stops at High-A and Double-A, but he also has 55 walks and has averaged less than five innings per appearance. He certainly has a future in the big leagues, but shaky command/control could force him to the bullpen.

Astros' Cristian Javier: Promoted to Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Javier was promoted to Double-A Corpus Christi on Wednesday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Javier, who was the organization's pitcher of the month for April, racked up a 0.94 ERA and 40 strikeouts over 28.2 innings for High-A Fayetteville. The 22-year-old right-hander from the Domincan Republic pitched as both a reliever and starter upon entering the organization, but the Astros have committed him to being a starter since the beginning of 2018.

Astros' Cristian Javier: Racking up strikeouts in A-ball
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Javier tossed seven scoreless innings Wednesday for High-A Buies Creek in its 7-3 win over Myrtle Beach. He gave up four hits and a walk and struck out eight.

Javier swung between the bullpen and rotation for various low-level affiliates through his first three professional seasons, but the Astros have seemingly committed to developing him as a starter in 2018. That plan has paid major dividends thus far, with the 21-year-old running up a 1.47 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 94:28 K:BB in 67.1 innings while splitting time between Buies Creek and Low-A Quad Cities. Javier leans heavily on his slider as a put-away pitch, but the right-hander is still looking to find more consistency with his changeup. He'll likely need to diversify his arsenal a little more at the higher levels of the minors to find continued success and convince the organization he's capable of starting over the long haul.
