Rangers starter Spencer Howard allowed six runs over 1.1 innings of work against the Astros on Monday. His final line included six hits, one walk, two strikeouts, and the loss. Texas ultimately fell to Houston by a score of 15-1.
Howard is now 0-4 with a 7.38 ERA, 1.59 WHIP, and .268 OBA through 16 games (12 starts) with the Phillies and Rangers this season. It has been incredibly hard to trust the former top prospect in any type of pitching scenario.
