Adrian Houser Struggles with Control, Mets Top Pirates 6-3

by Matthew Adam | Mets Correspondent | Tue, Apr 16th 5:57am EDT

Adrian Houser battled through control issues in Monday's 6-3 loss to the Mets, allowing two earned runs on just two hits and five walks while striking out five over 5.1 innings.

Fantasy Impact:

Despite limiting hits, Houser's five walks significantly contributed to his early exit and inflated pitch count, reflecting ongoing struggles with command this season. His ERA slightly improved to 4.70, but a WHIP of 1.50 and a low strikeout rate of 5.3 K/9 continue to limit his fantasy appeal. The high walk rate and modest strikeout totals make Houser a risky play in most fantasy formats, particularly in leagues that penalize for walks or prioritize strikeouts.
