FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Scott Feldman has cleared revocable waivers.
It's no surprise that he cleared given that he's owed what's left on his $12 million salary for 2014 and is under contract for $18 million more through 2016. However, it's possible Feldman could draw some interest, particularly if the Astros would be willing to pick up a little bit of his deal. The big righty holds a 4.37 ERA on the season but has pitched well in four out of his last five starts. Aug 25 - 6:45 PM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Scott Feldman has been placed on revocable waivers.

We'll find out on Monday whether he was claimed. It seems unlikely given his $30 million contract and 4.37 ERA this season, but perhaps a team desperate for a starter like the Angels will take a shot. Feldman has pitched well of late other than a clunker in Boston on August 14.

Scott Feldman earned his seventh win of the season, limiting the Yankees to two runs over 6 2/3 innings on Wednesday.

Feldman was excellent, holding the Yankees to only two extra-base hits over the course of the evening. Overall, he surrendered eight hits, walked two, and struck out seven. He was in line for the loss until the Astros' offense put up a four-run seventh inning. The right-hander has a 4.37 ERA, a 1.43 WHIP, and a 78/42 K/BB ratio. Feldman will toe the rubber on Monday at home against the Athletics next.

Scott Feldman suffered his ninth loss of the season after he was torched for seven runs in 5 1/3 innings by the Red Sox on Tuesday.

Feldman had the game under control through five innings, allowing only one run -- on a ground ball double play -- in the fourth. But the Red Sox put their first three batters on base to start the sixth, and the floodgates opened. Even after Feldman was chased, neither Darin Downs nor Mike Foltynewicz could put the fire out. On the night, Feldman allowed nine hits and a pair of walks while recording just one strikeout. The right-hander has done a good job for the Astros this season, but Thursday's effort balloons his ERA to 4.45. He'll try to bring it back down in a road start on Wednesday against the Yankees.
Aug 14 - 10:49 PM

Scott Feldman limited the Blue Jays to one run and eight hits in a complete-game, 6-1 victory on Sunday.

Feldman needed 109 pitches to finish off the Jays, inducing 18 ground balls while striking out just two. The win was his first in over a month, bringing his record to 5-8. The right-hander has a 4.13 ERA on the year, and he'll go for win No. 6 when he takes on the Rangers on Saturday.
Aug 3 - 7:57 PM

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports that the Astros have made starting pitcher Scott Feldman available.

But the 30-year-old right-hander signed a three-year, $30 million contract with Houston last offseason and hasn't pitched well enough to justify it, so the Astros may have a hard time finding a trade partner. Feldman owns a 4.39 ERA and 1.42 WHIP in 19 starts this season.

Scott Feldman kept the A's to one run on five hits over seven innings but walked away with a no-decision on Tuesday.

Feldman was in line for his fifth win, but a complete meltdown from closer Chad Qualls rendered Feldman's work meaningless. It's been that kind of year for the right-hander, who loses when he gets shelled and rarely wins when he pitches well. Feldman has a 4.39 ERA through 19 starts but remains 4-8 on the season. He'll look for a better fate Sunday against the Blue Jays.
Jul 29 - 11:48 PM

Scott Feldman was tagged for six runs in 5 1/3 innings by the A's in Thursday's loss.

The last two of those runs came after he was pulled in the sixth. That was some odd timing: he was allowed to face three straight left-handed hitters to start the inning and retired the last of them, but then he was pulled when Josh Donaldson came to the plate. Feldman has just one win in his last 10 starts, and he's 4-8 with a 4.60 ERA overall. It's disappointing, for sure, but then, it matters more to the Astros how he pitches in 2015 and '16 than it does this year.
Jul 24 - 6:53 PM

Scott Feldman pitched well in a losing effort against the White Sox on Friday, allowing three runs on seven hits over his seven innings.

Feldman fanned two and walked three on the night. He cruised through the first five innings without any difficulty, but was tagged by Dayan Viciedo for a two-run homer in the sixth inning, and Tyler Flowers delivered the game-winner with an RBI double in the seventh. He'll look to get back in the win column when he takes on the Athletics in Oakland on Thursday.
Jul 19 - 12:59 AM

Scott Feldman was knocked around for a season-high seven runs over 5 1/3 innings in a loss to the Red Sox on Friday.

Feldman had gone at least five innings with three earned runs or fewer allowed over his last five starts, but he allowed an army of baserunners Friday by giving up 11 hits and three walks. His ERA jumped from 3.86 to 4.33 with the loss. That's his new high-water mark for the year.
Jul 12 - 12:06 AM

Scott Feldman allowed three runs over six innings in a loss to the Braves on Tuesday.

Feldman was hurt by the long ball, as two of the three runs came on solo homers. It was still a largely positive outing for the right-hander, as he allowed just four hits and a walk in all. Despite pitching better of late, Feldman still hasn't gotten a win since May 26 and fell to 3-5 with Tuesday's result. He'll look for his first win this month when the Tigers come to town on Sunday.
Jun 24 - 11:43 PM

Scott Feldman got the no-decision, allowing two runs over five innings as the Astros were defeated by the Nationals 6-5 on Wednesday.

Feldman outdueled Gio Gonzalez, but the Astros bullpen could not hold the lead. The right-hander allowed six hits, walked three, and struck out five. A couple of shellackings aside, Feldman has done a fine job out of the rotation in Houston. He'll take a 3.95 ERA, 1.35 WHIP, and a 38/19 K/BB ratio into his next outing against the Braves at home.
Jun 18 - 11:03 PM

Scott Feldman got the no-decision, allowing three runs (two earned) in 6 1/3 innings in Thursday's win over the D'Backs.

The Astros bullpen couldn't hold the lead the offense afforded Feldman. The right-hander allowed four hits -- including a home run to Chris Owings -- without issuing a walk and striking out six batters. Feldman had struggled in recent starts, but lowered his ERA to 3.98 and his WHIP to 1.31 with Thursday's effort. He'll go up against the Nationals on the road in his next start.
Jun 13 - 12:05 AM

Scott Feldman was pulled after allowing three unearned runs in 1 2/3 innings Saturday in a loss to the Twins.

It's not very often a starter's ERA goes down in an outing in which he was pulled in the second inning, but Feldman's did today. With errors from Matt Dominguez and Marwin Gonzalez extending the frame, Feldman was up to 43 pitches in the second, and the Astros decided that was enough. Still, while the defense did him wrong, Feldman made his own trouble by hitting the leadoff man and then walking a pair of batters. He dropped to 3-4 on the year, but his ERA went from 4.25 to 4.12.
Jun 7 - 6:28 PM

Scott Feldman was hammered for nine earned runs in 5 1/3 innings Sunday by the Orioles.

Feldman entered the outing with a 3.02 ERA and by the time the day was done that mark was all the way up to 4.25. He surrendered 11 hits -- including a two-run homer to David Lough in the second inning and a grand slam to Manny Machado in the O's six-run sixth inning. Feldman will try to bounce back next weekend at Target Field.
