A Stony Brook alumnus taken by the Houston Astros in the fifth round of the 2011 MLB Amateur Draft, righthander Nick Tropeano is a raw but high-ceiling pitching prospect. Moving from low to high-A last year, Tropeano posted a combined 12-7, 2.85, 1.23 season, striking out 166 hitters and walking 47 in 158 innings.

As a starter, NiTro (how can we resist?) projects as a solid workhorse with smarts, since he outperforms his stuff on a regular basis thanks to an advanced feel for pitching and a very high quality, deceptive changeup. His makeup is very good, and he only needs to log another hundred or so minor league innings to be polished enough for MLB. A quality back-of-rotation candidate for a rapidly-improving Astros franchise.

The Astros have called up Nick Tropeano. He should make his MLB debut against the Mariners on Wednesday night. It's a good hand for NiTro's first start: while the M's might be in a wildcard hunt, they're still one of the league's weakest offenses.
