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.

Wed, 13 May 2015 18:09:50 -0700

Houston Astros SP Brett Oberholtzer (blister) left his start Wednesday, May 13, after three innings due to a blister, the team confirmed.

Fantasy Tip: Oberholtzer was replaced by Samuel Deduno, who could step into the rotation if Oberholtzer is forced to miss time or serve a stint on the 15-day disabled list.

Astros | Brett Oberholtzer to start Wednesday

Fri, 08 May 2015 17:17:58 -0700

Houston Astros SP Brett Oberholtzer will be recalled to start against the San Francisco Giants Wednesday, May 13.

Fantasy Tip: Samuel Deduno will be sent back to the bullpen with this move. Oberholtzer ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) went 5-13 with a 4.39 ERA in 24 starts in 2014 for the Astros, and he struck out only 94 hitters in 143 2/3 innings. Consider him a weak starting pitching option at FantasyScore.
