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.

Astros | Collin McHugh pushed back

Fri, 11 Jul 2014 07:32:07 -0700

Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh (fingernail) is unlikely to pitch Saturday, July 12, because his bullpen session was moved from Thursday, July 10, to Friday, July 11. A decision will be made Friday. SP Brett Oberholtzer is available if needed Saturday.

Fantasy Tip: McHugh could be rested through the All-Star break, so the surprise breakthrough arm may not pitch until next week. Adjust accordingly in deep leagues.
