Brady Rodgers entered his fifth season in the minor leagues still looking for his place with the Houston Astros. That uncertainty has been burned away as Rodgers has silenced Triple-A bats over and over again in 2016.

Rodgers was rewarded for a stellar season with the 2016 Pacific Coast League Pitcher of the Year award on Wednesday.

Rodgers, 25, is 12-4 with a 2.91 ERA in 21 starts with Triple-A Fresno. He has allowed 42 earned runs on 129 hits and 22 walks over 130 innings while striking out 112.

Rodgers' ERA (2.91) in a league-best and he also leads the league in wins (12). He has posted a second-lowest walk per 9 innings rate (1.45) and the fifth-highest strikeouts per 9 innings (7.75). He has 13 quality starts over 21 outings.

The Richmond, TX native started for the PCL All-Star team in the Triple-A All-Star Game, allowing one run over two innings and striking out three.
