Meet Your Astros - Brian Bogusevic
As I stated in yesterdays post this is a short introduction to your new look young gun Astros and we continue the list with Brian Bogusevic right field for your Houston Astros. Brian Bogusevic played for Tulane University as an outfielder starting pitcher. Drafted in 2005 by the Astros as a pitcher, Brian Bogusevic has been converted back to an outfielder in 2008. His first season as a pro was not that great only batting .179 with no HR and only 3 RBIs, but with some coaching and hard work got his batting average up to .287 with 4 HR and 14 RBIs. Hes not going to be the Carlos Beltran or Lance Berkman type of hitter that the Astros have had in the past but he will get on base and with some more time in the big leagues he will get better and could hold down the right field spot for a few years. Last season he came on strong and if the Astros do find a better right fielder he can provide as a good DH for the Astros as they move to the AL (seeing as he did hit a walk off grand slam for the Astros as a DH). He does have alot of upside and potential especially since this is only his 2nd full season playing at right field. With that being said good luck to the young man from everyone at From the Gun and go Astros.
