After much discussion about who to add to the World Championship Houston Astros, general manager Jeff Luhnow decided to strengthen the bullpen with now former Twins right-handed reliever Ryan Pressly, also a native Texan.
Houston added Pressly, who has a career 3.75 ERA in 317 innings. He has the 5th highest spinning fastball and a mean curveball, the second-highest out of those who've thrown at least 100. That according to Statcast.
The Astros and Rangers continue their series tonight. Coverage on Sportstalk 790 starts at 5pm, with On Deck.
Pressly did an interview a couple of years ago. Get to know new Houston Astro Ryan Pressly.
