Astros: Chris Devenski appears to have earned bullpen spot

Related Topics: Houston Astros, Chris Devenski

After two consecutive subpar seasons, Chris Devenski was in danger of losing his roster spot. The former Houston Astros relief ace struggled through the 2018 and 2019 seasons and appeared in only one postseason series in either year — the 2019 World Series, in which he allowed three runs in three innings.

To be fair, he struggled in the 2017 postseason as well, to the point that he’s allowed 11 runs in 11 total playoff innings in his career. Maybe that’s where the wheels started coming off, and whatever struggles he had during the run to the World Series carried over through the following two seasons.
