Scott Feldman surrendered two runs on three hits over five innings of work in Wednesday's rain-shortened Cactus League win over the Cubs.
Feldman was the only Reds pitcher to toe the mound during the contest, which was called in the fifth inning. He struck out three and walked three on the evening. The two runs to score on his watch came when he coughed up a two-run homer to Kyle Schwarber in the top of the fifth. The Reds have tabbed Feldman as their Opening Day starter. In four starts this spring, the veteran right-hander has pitched to a 4.15 ERA. He posted a 3.97 ERA while splitting time between the Astros and Blue Jays in 2016. Mar 22 - 10:56 PM

Scott Feldman has been named the Opening Day starter for the Reds.

The nod probably would have gone to Anthony DeSclafani, but he's out indefinitely with a sprained ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow. Brandon Finnegan will follow Feldman in the Reds' second regular-season game against the Phillies. Cincinnati's pitching staff remains unappealing leading into 2017.
Mar 20 - 11:48 AM

Scott Feldman was less than sharp in Saturday's split-squad Cactus League contest with the Giants, surrendering four runs on six hits over 3 1/3 innings.

Three of the four runs on Feldman's line scored via solo homers, with two coming off the bat of Michael Morse and an additional one off the bat of Jae-gyun Hwang. He entered Saturday's action having not allowed an earned run in spring action. While he has proven to be a reliable enough starter in the majors, Feldman holds little true fantasy intrigue.
Mar 11 - 6:33 PM

Scott Feldman struck out three over three scoreless innings in Saturday's Cactus League date with the Royals.

Fine work for Feldman. He did give up one hit, but otherwise pitched a clean game. While there is no true fantasy upside with the 34-year-old right-hander, he has posted ERA's a touch below 4.00 in each of the last three seasons. The Reds inked him to a cheap one-year, $2.3 million contract near the end of January.
Mar 4 - 6:14 PM

Scott Feldman faced the Diamondbacks in his start on Monday, allowing a pair of unearned runs in 1 2/3 innings of work.

He didn't give up a hit and he struck out a batter, but he issued two free passes. He was victimized by some shoddy Reds defense and a wild pitch in the second inning when both runs came around to score. The 34-year-old veteran split time between the Astros and Blue Jays last year, posting a decent 3.97 ERA in 77 innings. The Reds signed him this winter to serve as an innings-eater in their starting rotation.
Feb 27 - 8:02 PM

Reds signed RHP Scott Feldman to a one-year, $2.3 million contract.

The deal was agreed to Wednesday night and finalized soon after. Feldman will make a $2.3 million base salary in 2017 with the chance to earn another $2.2 million via performance-based incentives. He'll presumably be given a chance to earn a spot in the Reds' season-opening starting rotation this spring. If that doesn't work out, the 34-year-old right-hander can pitch in middle relief. Feldman registered a 3.97 ERA in five starts and 35 relief appearances last year between Houston and Toronto.
Jan 26 - 8:52 AM

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that the Reds have signed Scott Feldman to a one-year, $2.3 million contract.

Per Rosenthal, Feldman has already passed his physical. In addition to his $2.3 million base salary for 2017, the Reds' deal with the right-hander also includes $2.2 million in possible incentives. Feldman began the 2016 season with the Astros, who traded him to the Blue Jays at the beginning of August. Between the two squads, he posted a 3.97 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 42/13 K/BB ratio across 77 innings. Feldman offers the Reds a fair bit of versatility, as he has experience as both a starter and reliever. He turns 34 in February.
Jan 25 - 8:39 PM

Blue Jays acquired RHP Scott Feldman from the Astros for RHP Guadalupe Chavez.

The two sides are playing a series right now in Houston, so Feldman simply walked across to the visitors clubhouse Monday and donned his new jersey. He was rocking a 2.90 ERA, 1.24 WHIP, and 42/13 K/BB ratio through 62 innings (five starts and 21 relief appearances) this season with the Astros. Toronto will likely use Feldman out of the bullpen initially, but he could be tried again as a starter somewhere down the stretch.

MLB.com's Brian McTaggart reports that the Astros have traded Scott Feldman to the Blue Jays.

Feldman was sporting a 2.90 ERA, 1.24 WHIP, and 42/13 K/BB ratio through 62 innings (five starts and 21 relief appearances) this season with Houston. The right-hander figures to fill a middle relief role in Toronto.

Scott Feldman left Saturday's game against the Athletics due to stiffness.

The Astros didn't reveal more than that. "It wasn't until he started throwing and he stiffened up a little bit," manager A.J. Hinch said. "I saw the velocity start to decline - he was like 85, 86 (mph) - and the breaking ball was a little loose. So when I went out to talk to him, he just said he was stiff." The club said Feldman's removal was precautionary and he's not slated to undergo any tests, so he should be fine for the start of the second half.

Astros manager A.J. Hinch said that Scott Feldman might start one more time before the All-Star Break.

"I'll think about it," Hinch said. "We have 11 games counting today between now and the break and I think he's done everything to warrant that consideration." In a spot start against the Angels on Tuesday, Feldman surrendered just one unearned run on three hits over five innings. The Astros will face the Mariners and A's in their final two pre-All-Star Break series. Should the veteran right-hander see another start, it would come against one of those teams. He owns a 2.76 ERA and 34/13 K/BB ratio across 49 innings, mostly in relief duty.

Scott Feldman did a nice job in Tuesday's win over the Angels, allowing one unearned run on three hits over five innings.

Feldman earned the start in place of Lance McCullers (blister). He struck out two without walking a batter. Depending on whether McCullers is able to recover in time for his next start, Feldman could see at least one more spot outing. The veteran right-hander has been used, for the most part, as a bullpen arm and holds a 2.76 ERA with a 34/13 K/BB ratio across 49 frames.

Scott Feldman will start Tuesday against the Angels.

Feldman will start in place of Lance McCullers, who has been scratched due to a blister. The 33-year-old owns a 3.07 ERA and 32/13 K/BB ratio over 44 innings this season, mostly out of the bullpen. The Angels are an appealing matchup, but we're not expecting much in the way of fantasy value here.

Scott Feldman will be skipped from his next turn in the Astros' starting rotation.

Chris Devenski will take the hill instead on Saturday in Oakland. Astros manager A.J. Hinch said it's not a permanent demotion to the bullpen for Feldman, but Devenski could change that if he pitches well. Houston could also try some other arms in that spot. Feldman allowed five runs (three earned) on eight hits Sunday to the Red Sox and he has a brutal 1.88 WHIP over four starts this year.

Scott Feldman struggled in a no-decision against the Red Sox on Sunday, surrendering five runs (three earned) on eight hits over 4 1/3 innings.

The right-hander also issued four free passes on the night while punching out three. Feldman has really struggled in the early going, compiling an 0-2 record, 4.58 ERA and 1.88 WHIP over 19 2/3 innings in his four starts. If he doesn't start pitching well, he could be in danger of losing his spot in the rotation once Lance McCullers is ready to return. He'll try again for his first victory when he does battle against the Athletics in Oakland on Saturday.
