The Process Versus The Astros

Wandy Rodriguez

Rodriguez is one of the better pitchers in the National League, but his accomplishments are swept under the rug because the Astros have been horrid since he came into his own. A 5-foot-11 lefty, Rodriguez sits in the high-80s, and works with a curve and changeup. Despite that, righties have still managed to hit Rodriguez better than lefties.

Bud Norris

Norris always had the strikeouts, but he has curbed the walks and home runs enough to push him towards respectability. His fastball sits around 92-to-94 and he can pump it harder if need be. The heater is complemented with a slider and curve. Lefties hit him better, and have a .294/.350/.494 line against him this season.

J.A. Happ

Lefties are eating Happ alive this season, but historically, he has been a guy who struggles against righties. He throws a low-90s fastball a slider, a curve, and a change.
