Brewers' Adrian Houser: Making spring debut
Houser (groin) is scheduled to start Monday's Cactus League game against the Royals.
Houser likely won't be asked to work more than two innings while he makes his first appearance since exiting a Sept. 27 start against the Cardinals last season due to a right groin strain. The Brewers provided no indication that Houser required offseason surgery to address the injury, so he was presumably able to go through a normal throwing progression over the winter to put him a good spot heading into spring training. Unless the Brewers elect to expand their Opening Day rotation to six men, Houser may have to settle for a long-relief role to begin the season if all of Corbin Burnes, Brandon Woodruff, Freddy Peralta, Eric Lauer and Wade Miley are available....

Brewers' Adrian Houser: Re-signs with Milwaukee
Houser (groin) avoided arbitration by signing a one-year, $3.6 million deal with the Brewers on Friday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports
Houser finished 2022 with a 4.73 ERA and 1.46 WHIP through 102.2 innings, a major step down from his marks the season before (3.22 ERA, 1.28 WHIP). With the Brewers rotation already including Corbin Burnes, Brandon Woodruff, Freddy Peralta and Eric Lauer, Houser will likely find himself in a battle with Aaron Ashby for the Crew's fifth rotation spot....

Brewers' Adrian Houser: Goes on IL
The Brewers placed Houser (groin) on the 15-day injured list Wednesday.
As expected, the right groin strain that Houser suffered in his start Tuesday will result in him missing the rest of the regular season. Unless the Brewers are able to poach a wild-card spot from either the Phillies or Padres and then advance to the divisional round, Houser is unlikely to pitch again in 2022. He's made 21 starts for Milwaukee, pitching to a 6-10 record, 4.73 ERA and 1.46 WHIP over 102.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Adrian Houser: Likely heading to IL
Manager Craig Counsell said Houser will likely be placed on the 15-day injured list after suffering a right groin strain during Tuesday's loss to Cardinals, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Houser departed with the injury after 3.1 innings Tuesday, and his record dropped to 6-10 after he gave up three runs on two hits with three strikeouts and four walks. The right-hander rejoined the rotation in late August after he missed nearly two months with an elbow injury, and he's now poised to finish the season on the shelf with another injury. It's unclear if Houser would be available during the playoffs should the Brewers secure a spot.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Adrian Houser: Departs with injury
Houser was removed from Tuesday's start against the Cardinals with an apparent groin injury, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
The right-hander appeared to suffer the injury during the fourth inning as he landed awkwardly while delivering a pitch. Houser exited in line for the loss and allowed three runs on two hits with three strikeouts and four walks over 3.1 frames. He limped off the field under his own power, and it's unclear how the injury will affect his next turn through the rotation.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Adrian Houser: Effective in short start
Houser allowed three hits with no walks or strikeouts across 4.2 scoreless innings Wednesday against the Mets. He did not factor into the decision.
Houser generated only two swinging strikes across 74 total pitches, but he managed to turn in an effective outing. Perhaps most encouragingly, he didn't surrender a free pass, as he had walked multiple batters in four of five outings since returning from the injured list -- good for a 5.9 BB/9. For the season, Houser has a 4.62 ERA with only a 66:43 K:BB across 99.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Adrian Houser: Pulled after three innings
Houser gave up five runs (four earned) on seven hits and four walks while striking out one over three innings in a 7-6 victory over the Yankees on Friday. He did not factor into the decision.
Houser looked overwhelmed in his 19th start of the year. He repeatedly nibbled around the outside of the zone and opted to put men on base rather than attacking hitters. The four walks that he issued give him 43 free passes in 94.2 innings pitched this season with only 66 strikeouts. The K/BB of 1.5 he has this season is the lowest rate of his four-year career as a starter. Houser is tentatively expected to face the Mets in another tough matchup next week.... See More ...

Brewers' Adrian Houser: Excellent in sixth win
Houser (6-9) allowed a run on a hit and two walks over six innings, earning the win Saturday versus the Reds. He did not strike out a batter.
Houser amassed just three whiffs on 82 pitches, instead pitching effectively to contact. The lone run against him was on a TJ Friedl sacrifice fly in the third inning. Houser has looked better after a brief stint in the bullpen -- he's allowed four runs (two earned) over 11 innings in his last two appearances, both starts. He has a 4.61 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 65:39 K:BB through 91.2 innings across 19 outings (18 starts this year. The right-hander is projected for a home start versus the Yankees next weekend, and his rotation spot should be fairly safe with Eric Lauer (elbow) and Freddy Peralta (shoulder) on the injured list....

Brewers' Adrian Houser: Keeps rotation spot
Houser is slated to start Saturday's game against the Reds at American Family Field.
With Freddy Peralta (shoulder) set to join Aaron Ashby (shoulder) on the injured list and with Eric Lauer (elbow) also at risk of landing on the shelf, Houser looks like he has a fairly clear path to a rotation spot. He'll be making his second straight turn through the rotation this weekend after picking up a win Monday in Colorado while allowing three runs (one earned) on two hits and two walks over five innings....

Brewers' Adrian Houser: Picks up fifth win
Houser (5-9) yielded three runs (one earned) on two hits and two walks over five innings Monday, striking out two and earning a win over Colorado.
Houser tossed two scoreless innings of relief in his last outing after he was rocked for 25 runs over his previous six starts, posting an 8.23 ERA during that span. He tossed four perfect innings after the Rockies plated three runs in the first inning Monday. Houser is now sporting a 4.83 ERA with a 65:37 K:BB through 85.2 frames. He's lined up to start at home against the Reds this weekend.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Adrian Houser: Starting Monday
Houser will start Monday's game against the Rockies, Sophia Minnaert of Bally Sports Wisconsin reports.
Houser pitched in relief Wednesday against the Pirates and struck out two over two scoreless innings. While Freddy Peralta was initially slated to start Monday, Houser will step in on short notice since Peralta will be pushed back a few days.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Adrian Houser: Works out of bullpen Wednesday
Houser struck out two and allowed one hit and no walks over two scoreless relief innings in Wednesday's 6-1 win over the Pirates.
In his return from the injured list Aug. 24, Houser started and was blasted by the Dodgers for five runs on five hits and four walks en route to his ninth loss of the season. After that outing, manager Craig Counsell didn't specify what Houser's role would be moving forward, but the right-hander's usage out of the bullpen Wednesday would seemingly imply that he no longer has a hold on a rotation spot. Jason Alexander stepped in as the Brewers' new No. 5 starter Tuesday and will be rewarded with a second turn through the rotation Sunday in Arizona after he limited the Pirates to one run while allowing five baserunners over five frames in a no-decision....

Brewers' Adrian Houser: Knocked around in return
Houser (4-9) took the loss against the Dodgers on Wednesday, allowing five runs on five hits and four walks while striking out four batters over 2.1 innings.
Houser returned from a stay on the injured list to make his first start in nearly two months, but the outing did not go well. The right-hander needed 81 pitches to retire just seven batters, and he was down 4-1 by the end of the first inning. Houser's wildness was partly to blame for the poor opening frame -- he walked the first two batters he faced and issued three free passes overall in the inning -- but things weren't working much better when he did get the ball over the plate. Houser has registered a 5.15 ERA over 16 starts this season, but he may stick in the rotation for now with Aaron Ashby (shoulder) on the injured list.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Adrian Houser: Officially activated Wednesday
Houser (elbow) was reinstated from the 15-day injured list ahead of Wednesday's start against the Dodgers.
Houser recently completed a three-game rehab assignment in which he allowed six runs (three earned) on six hits and seven walks while striking out 10 in 8.1 innings. He was slated to throw 60-75 pitches during a rehab start Sunday before the Brewers decided to bring him back for Wednesday's series finale, so he'll likely be on a pitch count against the Dodgers....

Brewers' Adrian Houser: Confirmed as Wednesday's starter
Houser (elbow) will be activated from the 15-day injured list to start Wednesday against the Dodgers, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
The 29-year-old joined the Brewers in Los Angeles as a member of the taxi squad Monday, and he'll re-enter the starting rotation Wednesday after being sidelined nearly eight weeks by a right flexor strain. Houser was originally scheduled to throw 60-to-75 pitches in a minor-league rehab start Sunday before the change of plan, and he's likely to have a similar workload his first outing back with Milwaukee....

Brewers' Adrian Houser: Could come off IL on Wednesday
Houser (elbow) joined the Brewers' taxi squad in Los Angeles on Monday and could be activated from the 15-day injured list to start Wednesday's series finale against the Dodgers, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Houser has been on the shelf since July 2 with a right flexor strain, but he looks to be healthy again after making three rehab starts at Triple-A Nashville earlier this month. The 29-year-old had been scheduled to make another start for Nashville this past Sunday, but he was scratched in a decision that was apparently not injury-related. The Brewers will have an opening in the rotation for Houser after Aaron Ashby (shoulder) was placed on the IL on Monday, but expectations should be tempered for the right-hander if he does in fact get the starting nod Wednesday. Prior to landing on the IL, Houser submitted a 4.72 ERA and 7.7 K-BB% across 15 starts, and his results during the rehab assignment weren't overly impressive (3.24 ERA, 1.56 WHIP, 10:7 K:BB in 8.1 innings)....
