Houston Astros SP Scott Feldman said his mechanics are better than they were at the start of the year. "I think we kind of all noticed there was something a little bit just not quite right, even at the beginning of the year when I had some good results," Feldman said. "My arm was killing me, my arm was slow and I wasn't really getting many swing and misses or anything. Hopefully we're on the right track."
Fantasy Tip: Feldman's adjustments with his mechanics seem to be paying off. He has posted a 3.32 ERA in his last four starts.
