    View Draft Report
    A 17th-round pick of the Astros last year, Howard should be a solid senior sign this year as a massive (6-foot-9) righthander with durability and solid if unspectacular stuff. Howard has been a regular member of the Horned Frogs rotation for two seasons, keeping hitters off balance largely with his mid-80s cutter, which plays well off his 88-92 mph fastball. He shows at least average control and an ability to throw his fringy curveball and changeup for strikes. While Howard lacks a plus pitch, his ability to mix four pitches well gives him survival skills and a high floor.
