Nick Tropeano strikes out four in loss vs. Indians
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/16/14) Astros pitcher Nick Tropeano took a loss Tuesday, surrendering two runs (one earned) on four hits and two walks in five innings while striking out four in his team's 4-2 defeat against the Indians.
Tropeano (1-1) pitched about as well as he did in his first start but faced a much tougher road to a win Tuesday with Corey Kluber racking up strikeouts against Houston hitters. The Astros pitcher gave up a run on a groundout in the first inning before the Indians plated an unearned run in the fourth. Tropeano owns a 2.70 ERA and 9:4 K:BB ratio in 10 innings. He's scheduled to face the Rangers Monday.
2015 Fantasy Outlooks: Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim
The Angels rode a top-heavy lineup to the majors' best record in 2014. Al Melchior looks at the bats and arms that could push them squad -- and Fantasy owners -- into contention this season.
|2014 summary: Nick Tropeano rebounded from a mediocre showing at Double-A Corpus Christi in 2013, showing signs of progress in a season at Triple-A Oklahoma City. The 24-year-old went 9-5 with a 3.03 ERA in 20 starts and three relief appearances at Oklahoma City, and he joined the Astros' rotation when major league rosters expanded in September. In four starts with Houston, Tropeano was 1-3 with a 4.57 ERA. The Astros traded Tropeano and minor league catcher Carlos Perez to the Angels in an offseason deal that netted catcher Hank Conger.|
Playing time status: Tropeano will be a contender for the fifth starter's spot with the Angels.
2015 outlook: Though his first stint in the majors didn't go especially well, Tropeano could be a useful pitcher for owners in deeper mixed leagues. He made strides in his ability to pitch with control and induce swings-and-misses last season, and pitching at Angel Stadium could blunt the impact of his flyball tendencies.
