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.

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.
May 26 - 10:24 PM

Scott Feldman didn't have his best stuff in Thursday's no-decision against the Tigers, as he allowed 10 hits and five runs (four earned) over six innings.

Feldman started the game well enough, but he ran into trouble in the middle innings, with the Tigers scoring a pair of runs in the fourth on a two-run homer by Nick Castellanos and another pair in the fifth on an RBI groundout and a run-scoring single by Miguel Cabrera. Feldman's peripheral numbers were almost non-existent--he struck out just two and walked just one. With the no-decision, his record held steady at 3-4 and he now holds a 5.17 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 35/11 K/BB ratio over 54 innings. His next start will be a road tilt with the Orioles.
May 21 - 4:53 PM

Scott Feldman pitched a quality start against the Blue Jays on Saturday, striking out 10 and allowing three runs over 6 2/3 innings.

The 10 strikeouts were a season high for Feldman. All three runs against him came in the first inning, when Russell Martin hit a two-run triple and Justin Smoak tacked on an RBI single. With the solid start, Feldman improved to 3-4 with a 5.06 ERA and 1.33 WHIP. His next match-up figures to be a tough one, as he has a road start against the Tigers on the docket.
May 16 - 10:22 PM

Scott Feldman pitched well on Sunday, allowing three runs over seven innings against the Angels.

Given that he coughed up six runs in three innings vs the Rangers in his last start, Feldman looked much improved against the Halos, though he still ended up the losing pitcher. He struck out five and walked one, scattering six hits. All three runs against the pitcher came in the fifth inning. Feldman now holds a still-bloated 5.23 ERA and 1.35 WHIP. He'll look to make it back-to-back quality starts when he faces the Blue Jays at home.
May 10 - 6:22 PM

The Rangers got to Scott Feldman early and often Tuesday, putting up six runs on nine hits over Feldman's three innings of work.

The Rangers scored four runs in the first inning, two on a Prince Fielder double and two on Carlos Peguero's first homer of the season. They tacked on two more in the third, Feldman's last inning. The right-hander walked one and struck out two in the outing. The loss was his first in his last four starts and dropped him to 2-3 on the year. Feldman will take a 5.50 ERA into Sunday's start at the Angels.
May 5 - 11:01 PM

Scott Feldman limited the A's to three runs over 6 2/3 innings Saturday to earn his second win.

Feldman was flirting with a shutout until the bottom of the seventh, when the Oakland offense generated all three of its runs in the 9-3 loss. Feldman allowed only five total hits and struck out six. He'll carry a 2-2 record, 4.81 ERA, and 1.19 WHIP into his next start at home against the Mariners.
Apr 25 - 7:26 PM

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.
