Houser scratch a mystery
Rays pitching prospect James Houser was mysteriously scratched from his start Friday with Double-A Montgomery, and the Rays have said they plan to make an announcement on Houser’s status tomorrow.
The left-handed Houser (left), the Rays' second-round pick in 2003 out of Sarasota High, is 5-4 with a 3.65 ERA in 20 starts with the Biscuits.
Houser, 22, declined comment to the Montgomery Advertiser before Friday’s game. Montgomery manager Billy Gardner also declined comment, saying that any information on Houser would first come from the Devil Rays.
