KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) - Houston's Lucas Harrell won a team-best 11 games as a rookie in 2012 before a terrible season in which he led the American League with 17 losses and got bumped from the rotation and into the bullpen.
Harrell made some offseason adjustments, and even though he knows it will be tough, he's confident he can reclaim a spot in the rotation.
Harrell won a spot in the rotation in 2012 and went 11-11 with a 3.76 ERA. A year later his ERA ballooned to 5.86 and he was 6-17 in 36 games with 22 starts.
