Scott Feldman pitched a solid game on Sunday, scattering six hits and two runs over six innings against the Angels.

Feldman struck out three without walking a batter. Outside of a two-run homer by C.J. Cron in the fourth inning, Feldman pitched a clean game. It marked a huge improvement on his previous start, in which the A's battered him around for eight runs. Feldman has posted a sub-4.00 ERA in each of the last two seasons, but he doesn't strike out batters (career K/9 of 5.5) and his WHIP of 1.303 last season is higher than ideal. He's little more than injury filler for deep AL-only leagues. Feldman will face the A's in his next start.
Apr 19 - 6:53 PM

Scott Feldman was lit up in Monday's loss against the Athletics, allowing eight runs (seven earned) in five innings.

The A's entered the night batting .304 collectively in their first seven games and the offense kept moving. Feldman allowed three runs in the first inning on two RBI doubles and an RBI single. Brett Lawrie slugged a solo home run in the second. Then Marcus Semien clubbed a solo shot and Billy Butler followed not long after with a three-run blast. Feldman, overall, yielded 10 hits and a walk without recording a strikeout. He'll have to have a short memory if he wants to rebound in his next start at home against the Angels.
Apr 13 - 11:09 PM

Scott Feldman pitched well on Wednesday against the Indians, yielding just one run over 6 2/3 innings, but was saddled with a loss.

Opposing starter Carlos Carrasco was simply better than Feldman on this particular evening. Feldman made one costly mistake, a solo home run to Carlos Santana in the fourth inning which broke a scoreless tie. The right-hander gave up five hits in total while walking none and striking out five. Feldman will strive for his first win his next time out at home against the Athletics.
Apr 8 - 10:53 PM

Scott Feldman pitched well in his final Cactus League tuneup on Friday, allowing two runs on seven hits over six innings against the Royals.

The veteran right-hander punched out four and walked a pair on the evening. He hasn't pitched well this spring, compiling a 6.87 ERA and 8/8 K/BB ratio over 18 1/3 innings. He'll look to build on this strong effort when he takes the ball against the Indians next week.
Apr 3 - 11:23 PM

Scott Feldman gave up five runs in three innings Monday in a loss to the Braves.

Feldman allowed seven hits, walked two and struck out none. He's given up eight runs without recording a single strikeout over six innings in his last two starts. Feldman dealt with some early season shoulder tendinitis last year before coming back strong. It might be worth wondering whether the problem has crept up again.
Mar 23 - 5:39 PM

Scott Feldman took a tough loss after allowing one run in six innings Wednesday against the Rangers.

The middle wasn't so great, but Feldman started (1.69 ERA in April) and ended (1.91 ERA in September) on high notes in the first year of his three-year, $30 million contract with the Astros. Overall, he was 8-12 with a 3.74 ERA. That has to be just about what the Astros were looking for from him.

Scott Feldman was magnificent on Thursday, holding the Indians to one run over eight innings, but took a no-decision as the Astros were felled in 13 innings.

The Indians couldn't get anything going against Feldman, who yielded the one run in the ninth inning after allowing a lead-off ground-rule double to Michael Bourn. Bourn later came around to score when Chad Qualls allowed an RBI single to Carlos Santana. Feldman yielded only four hits and a walk while striking out two batters. The right-hander has a 3.82 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, and 101/46 K/BB ratio. He'll look to hit the win column for the first time in September when he takes the hill on the road against the Rangers on Tuesday.

Scott Feldman allowed three runs in 8 1/3 innings Saturday in the Astros' loss to the A's.

Houston had a lead in the ninth inning, but Feldman allowed two singles and then Chad Qualls gave up the tying runs and the walkoff. Feldman was mostly excellent, yielding just seven hits in all while striking out six and walking none. He threw his first shutout of the season last Saturday against the Rangers and seems to be rolling now. That three-year, $30 million contract no longer looks so awful.

Scott Feldman tossed his first shutout of the season Saturday as the Astros beat the Rangers 2-0.

Feldman carved his way easily through the Texas lineup, allowing only three hits and a walk while striking out five. He's been a disappointment for the most part in his first year of a three-year, $30 million contract, but this outing was truly dominant. Feldman will carry an 8-10 record, 4.09 ERA, and 1.41 WHIP into his next start on the road against the A's.

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.

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.
Thu, Aug 14, 2014 10:49:00 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.
