Astros | Chad Qualls reinstated

Fri, 10 Jul 2015 13:14:34 -0700

Houston Astros RP Chad Qualls (neck) was activated from the disabled list Friday, July 10, and SP Brett Oberholtzer was optioned to the minors in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Qualls should return to a setup role behind Luke Gregerson in the Houston bullpen. Gregerson hasn't been the most dominant reliever for the Astros this year, but he hasn't done anything to make the team think twice about using him in the ninth inning. Qualls is strictly a handcuff option for those that own Gregerson.

Astros | Brett Oberholtzer to pitch Thursday

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 20:57:58 -0700

The Houston Astros will recall SP Brett Oberholtzer from Class AAA El Paso Thursday, July 9, against the Cleveland Indians.

Fantasy Tip: Oberholtzer was demoted to the minors last month. Avoid using him in FantasyScore unless he manages to stick around and pitch with more consistency.

Astros | Brett Oberholtzer sent down

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 10:44:00 -0700

Houston Astros SP Brett Oberholtzer was optioned to Class AAA Fresno Saturday, June 27.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear who the Astros will use to replace Oberholtzer ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) in the starting rotation after he allowed six earned runs (two home runs) in just 1 1/3 innings against the New York Yankees Saturday. Oberholtzer should only be retained in the deepest of AL-only leagues.

Astros | Another QS for Brett Oberholtzer

Wed, 17 Jun 2015 21:42:02 -0700

Houston Astros SP Brett Oberholtzer allowed three earned runs, eight hits and no walks over five innings in 6 1/3 innings in a win Wednesday, June 17, against the Colorado Rockies.

Fantasy Tip: Oberholtzer ($3,100; or 6.2% of cap) has won each of his past two outings while turning in quality starts in each. He has re-emerged as a dependable FantasyScore option, and he is a steal at the price level.

Astros | Brett Oberholtzer so-so in return

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 21:52:55 -0700

Houston Astros SP Brett Oberholtzer (finger) allowed two runs, seven hits and two walks over 5 1/3 innings in a no-decision Monday, June 1, against the Baltimore Orioles. He was activated from the 15-day disabled list after recovering from a blister on his left index finger.

Fantasy Tip: Oberholtzer ($3,100; or 6.2% of cap) should be avoided in FantasyScore until he starts to show more consistency.

Astros | Brett Oberholtzer starting Monday

Fri, 29 May 2015 14:10:19 -0700

Houston Astros SP Brett Oberholtzer is starting against the Baltimore Orioles Monday, June 1.

Fantasy Tip: Oberholtzer ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) should be viewed as a desperation flier in FantasyScore contests Monday. With Class AAA Fresno, Oberholtzer has a 5.68 ERA and 1.34 WHIP over three starts this season, and through 35 starts in the majors, he has a 9-18 record, a 3.71 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 5.9 K/9. You should likely aim higher in all formats.

Astros | Scott Feldman had meniscus tear

Fri, 29 May 2015 13:28:36 -0700

Updating a previous report, Houston Astros SP Scott Feldman (knee) underwent arthroscopic surgery to fix a torn right medial meniscus in his knee Friday, May 29, and he was put on the 15-day disabled list. He's expected to be out six weeks. He sustained the injury during his start Tuesday, May 26. SP Brett Oberholtzer (finger) could come off the disabled list to take Feldman's spot in the rotation after he made a rehab start Wednesday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: With Feldman out for that long, he can be dropped in standard fantasy leagues. Oberholtzer ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) allowed one earned run in just three innings of work in his only start this year before being injured. Check to see if he was dropped in AL-only leagues. At FantasyScore, it'd be wise to avoid him for at least a start or two if he rejoins the rotation in place of Feldman.

Astros | Brett Oberholtzer to rehab Wednesday

Tue, 26 May 2015 15:04:45 -0700

Houston Astros SP Brett Oberholtzer (finger) will make a rehab start for Class AAA Fresno Wednesday, May 27, according to manager A.J. Hinch.

Fantasy Tip: Oberholtzer ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) allowed one earned run in three innings in his only start this year after posting an ERA of 4.39 in 2014. He's not necessarily guaranteed a spot in the starting rotation when he's ready, either, so his fantasy value in AL-only leagues remains uncertain.

Astros | Brett Oberholtzer to go on rehab stint

Mon, 25 May 2015 13:25:37 -0700

Houston Astros SP Brett Oberholtzer (finger) will go on a rehab assignment in the next four or five days.

Fantasy Tip: Oberholtzer ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) may be on the DL slightly longer than his 15 days, as he looks to be back in early June if no setbacks occur. See how his finger responds following the rehab for a blister.

Astros | Brett Oberholtzer placed on DL

Thu, 14 May 2015 04:57:27 -0700

Houston Astros SP Brett Oberholtzer (hand) was placed on the 15-day disabled list due to a blister on his pitching hand. The blister forced him to leave his first start of the season after just three innings.

Fantasy Tip: This was a tough break for Oberholtzer, who will now be out until the start of June. Remove him from consideration in your lineup for the time being. Samuel Deduno took his place on the mound and may be called upon for spot starts, so stay tuned.
