Drafted in the 14th round (439th overall) by the Oakland Athletics in 2012
House was a 25th-round pick by the Red Sox out of high school, and he has been a bit of an enigma for scouts in college. He has a great build at 6-foot-4 and 210 pounds, but had an up-and-down year for the Lobos. Sometimes scouts saw him touching 93 mph, while others he was in the mid-80s. House also has a tendency to change arm slots during games. He has a good changeup and slider and sometimes pitched backward this year. He could profile as a back-of-the-rotation starter with improved command, but a team may move him to the bullpen and see if his velocity plays up in that role. A team that believes in his size and stuff could take House as high as the seventh round.
