Splits (MiLB & MLB in 2022)
The Reds have faced off against Adrian Houser three times this season and have found some success, scoring 15 runs (10 earned) in the 15 innings he’s been on the mound, but they’ve also lost two of those three games.
The home and road splits aren’t shown below, but they are significant. At home he’s holding batters to a .657 OPS and has a 3.46 ERA (road OPS against is .802 and ERA is 6.14). His splits against lefties and righties are also significant. Lefties hit him very well, with an average over .300 and a slugging percentage closing in on .500. Righties, though, struggle to do much hitting against him – though they do draw a solid number of walks and make plenty of contact.

Graham Ashcraft will make his rehab start Wednesday at Double-A Chattanooga.

If you are wondering why Ashcraft is heading to Double-A instead of Triple-A it’s likely because Chattanooga plays at home next week while Louisville is on the road in St. Paul. The Reds (and other teams) prefer their rehabbing big leaguers to play in home ballparks for a variety of reasons.
