An MRI taken Wednesday on Scott Feldman's right shoulder showed no major structural damage.
"Just irritation right now," Feldman told reporters. "Hopefully it's just a couple extra days off and we'll go from there." The right-hander made an early exit from his start Tuesday night against the Mariners after experiencing some discomfort in his throwing shoulder, but it sounds like a minor issue. It won't be hard for the Astros to skip him one time through their rotation. Sep 2 - 4:21 PM

Date:

Scott Feldman (shoulder) will undergo an MRI on Wednesday.

Feldman revealed after Tuesday's start that his shoulder discomfort gradually built up during the game before it finally forced him to exit in the third. The Astros are currently rolling with a six-man rotation, but it looks like they might be forced to go back to a traditional five-man set.

Scott Feldman left Tuesday's start against the Mariners with right shoulder discomfort.

Feldman might have been pitching hurt all night, as he entered the game on a hot streak and then proceeded to allow three runs on three hits and five walks over 2 2/3 frames. It's unclear at this point whether he'll be sent for an MRI, but it would seem likely. The Astros should have more on his status after the game.
Sep 1 - 9:37 PM

Scott Feldman pitched eight scoreless innings, but was left with a no-decision as the Astros fell to the Yankees on Monday.

Feldman traded zeroes with opposing starter Nate Eovaldi for all eight innings, scattering six hits with no walks and six strikeouts. He has been quite good over his last six starts, brandishing a 1.80 ERA. On the season, the right-hander has a 3.75 ERA with a 1.27 WHIP and a 59/22 K/BB ratio over 105 2/3 innings. Feldman will face the Twins at the end of a road trip next.

Scott Feldman allowed just two runs over seven innings in Tuesday's no-decision against the Rays.

Feldman allowed a solo homer in the fifth inning but was largely able to stay out of trouble until the seventh inning, despite allowing nine hits in total. In the seventh, though, he loaded the bases with one out and wasn't able to pull another escape act. He left in line for his sixth loss but was let off the hook, leaving his record at an even 5-5. Feldman has pitched well of late, lowering his ERA to 4.05 without sustaining a loss in the past month, and he'll attempt to stay out of the loss column in Sunday's interleague tilt with the Dodgers.

Scott Feldman fired six shutout innings Wednesday in the Astros' 2-0 defeat of the Giants.

Feldman yielded only four hits and one walk while whiffing four San Francisco batters. He's looked pretty sharp now in four straight outings, lowering his season ERA to 4.17. On tap next is a start at home against the Rays.
Aug 12 - 6:54 PM

Scott Feldman allowed two runs in six innings Thursday against the A's.

He struck out three and walked two. Of his six hits, two went over the fence, both, you've deduced, of the solo variety. It was another promising outing for the right-hander, who posted a 3.86 ERA in his other three starts since returning from a knee injury. Feldman squares off against the Tigers next week.
Aug 7 - 1:52 AM

Scott Feldman pitched decently in Friday's no-decision against the Diamondbacks, allowing three runs on seven hits over 5 1/3 innings.

Feldman punched out three and didn't issue a walk in the ballgame. With Thursday's acquisition of Mike Fiers it remains unclear whether it will be Feldman or Collin McHugh who gets bumped from the Astros rotation, so Feldman needed a decent effort on Friday to state his case.

Scott Feldman was superb in a no-decision against the Royals on Saturday, allowing just one run on four hits over 7 2/3 innings in a game the Astros would lose 2-1 in 10 innings.

This was Feldman's second start since being activated from the disabled list. He had missed over a month after undergoing surgery on a meniscus tear in his right knee. If Saturday's results are any indication of the future, he could be in for a solid second half. Outside of a seventh-inning sacrifice fly, the Royals couldn't plate a run against the veteran right-hander. Feldman held a 4.80 ERA prior to hitting the disabled list, but given his career track record, an ERA in the range of 4.00 is not unreachable if he remains healthy. He'll look to build off of Saturday's start when he faces the Diamondbacks in his next outing.
Jul 25 - 11:05 PM

Astros activated RHP Scott Feldman from the 15-day disabled list.

Feldman will return to the Astros rotation on Saturday against the Rangers. He has been sidelined since late May after undergoing surgery to repair a tear in the meniscus in his right knee.
Jul 18 - 3:43 PM

Scott Feldman (knee) is scheduled to rejoin the Astros' rotation on Saturday against the Rangers.

Feldman has made two rehab starts with Double-A Corpus Christi, allowing four runs over eight innings. The veteran right-hander has been on the shelf since late May after having surgery to repair a right meniscus tear, but he's now ready to rejoin the first-place Astros.
Jul 12 - 11:23 AM

Scott Feldman (knee) could begin a minor league rehab assignment on Saturday.

He'll first have to make it through another bullpen session later this week. Feldman has been on the disabled list since May 27 with a torn meniscus in his right knee. Look for him to return after the All-Star break.
Jun 30 - 5:38 PM

Scott Feldman (knee) resumed throwing from a mound this week.

Feldman, who had surgery last month to repair a right meniscus tear, threw from the bump on Monday and again on Thursday. It's not clear when he might be ready for a rehab assignment, but the veteran right-hander is expected to rejoin the Astros' rotation shortly after the All-Star break.
Jun 26 - 10:32 AM

Astros placed RHP Scott Feldman on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 27, with a right knee meniscus tear.

It's not clear when he suffered the injury, but Feldman has already undergone surgery and will be sidelined for 4-6 weeks. Michael Feliz has taken Feldman's spot on the roster, but it's expected to be Brett Oberholtzer who enters the rotation in the righty's place.
May 29 - 3:12 PM

Scott Feldman gave up only one run in six innings to get the win Tuesday facing the Orioles.

Feldman was in line for the loss after giving up a sixth-inning sacrifice fly to Chris Davis, but the Astros rallied in the seventh to take the lead. The right-hander gave up five hits, walked three, and struck out two in what was his best outing since April 8. Feldman owns an uninspiring 4.80 ERA with a 1.37 WHIP and a 37/14 K/BB ratio in 60 innings. He'll match up with the Orioles again in his next start, but he'll have home-field advantage.
