    Resurgent Houston should have multiple picks in the middle rounds. The Cougars' best bet is 6-foot-4 LHP Erick Burke, who has teased scouts with a 92-mph fastball and above-average breaking ball. Burke doesn't show that kind of stuff or even throw strikes with consistency and rarely pitched this year. He was given a chance to pitch in the second half and responded better. If he gets seen well in postseason play, he could climb into the first four or six rounds.
