Date:

Scott Feldman will be placed on the disabled list Tuesday with right biceps tendinitis.

The Astros will call up right-hander Collin McHugh to take his spot on the active roster. Feldman has a 1.69 ERA through his first four starts with the Astros, but he has a less-impressive 9/9 K/BB ratio in 26 2/3 innings. The 31-year-old was signed to a three-year, $30 million deal over the winter.
Apr 21 - 4:32 PM

Scott Feldman surrendered five runs -- four earned -- over six innings in a loss to the Royals on Thursday.

It was Feldman's first defeat in four starts for the Astros. He still has an exceptional 1.69 ERA, even though he has just as many walks (nine) as strikeouts through 26 2/3 innings.
Apr 17 - 11:50 PM

Astros activated RHP Scott Feldman from the bereavement list.

Feldman was away from the club for a few days after the passing of his father. His next start will come on Thursday against the Royals.
Apr 16 - 11:16 AM

Astros placed RHP Scott Feldman on the bereavement leave list.

Feldman managed to twirl a gem against the Rangers on Friday while pitching with a heavy heart after his father had passed away just days prior. He isn't expected to miss a start.
Apr 12 - 3:36 PM

Scott Feldman was terrific in a no-decision against the Rangers on Friday, scattering two hits and four walks over seven scoreless innings.

Feldman punched out three on the night. He was denied a chance at his third consecutive victory as the Astros couldn’t push a run across against opposing starter Yu Darvish. Through three brilliant starts, Feldman has compiled a 0.44 ERA, 0.73 WHIP and 7/8 K/BB ratio in 20 2/3 innings. While we don’t expect him to keep it up, he’s worth using in mixed leagues until he comes back to Earth, particularly against Bruce Chen and the Royals at home on Thursday.
Apr 12 - 12:18 AM

Scott Feldman allowed one run on three hits over seven innings in Sunday's win over the Angels.

Feldman was spotless in his first start of the season, and he was only slightly less spectacular in keeping the Angels under wraps. The right-hander gave up just three hits and two walks while striking out only one batter, inducing 12 ground ball outs. Through two starts Feldman has allowed just one run and has a 0.66 WHIP. He'll have another tough test next week when he faces the Rangers.
Apr 6 - 6:32 PM

Scott Feldman gave up just two hits over 6 2/3 innings in his Houston debut as the Astros topped the Yankees 6-2 on Tuesday.

The de facto staff ace was ace-like on Tuesday, as he allowed just four baserunners on his watch. Feldman is coming off a strong 2013 season in which he won 12 games and posted a 3.86 ERA, but his fantasy value takes a major hit on the offense-deficient Astros. The right-hander will next take the mound Sunday against the Angels.
Apr 1 - 10:16 PM

Scott Feldman allowed three runs over 5 2/3 innings in his final spring start against the Mets on Wednesday.

Feldman gave up just five hits while striking out six in the outing. It wasn't a great first spring with his new club, as Feldman registered a 5.40 ERA over 16 2/3 innings. Nevertheless, he's been named the Opening Day starter and should easily be the best starter the Astros have this year.
Mar 26 - 9:51 PM

Astros manager Bo Porter on Monday named Scott Feldman the club's Opening Day starter.

It's certainly no surprise after general manager Jeff Luhnow said last month that Feldman was the only Astros pitcher that had a rotation spot locked up. Feldman posted a 3.86 ERA and 1.18 WHIP last season for the Cubs and Orioles before inking a three-year, $30 million contract with the Astros over the winter.
Mar 17 - 9:40 AM

Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow said Saturday that Scott Feldman is the only Astros hurler with a rotation spot locked up.

He did hint at Jarred Cosart, Brett Oberholtzer and Brad Peacock having a leg up on the rest of the competition, but wouldn't guarantee their spots. The team also recently inked Jerome Williams to a free agent deal with the expectation that he would join the rotation.
Feb 15 - 3:11 PM

Astros signed RHP Scott Feldman to a three-year, $30 million contract.

The deal was reported earlier Friday and now been officially announced. After being shuffled back and forth between the rotation and bullpen during his time in Texas, Feldman was used exclusively as a starter in 2013 with the Cubs and Orioles. He responded with the best season of his career, posting a 3.86 ERA and 1.18 WHIP while continuing to get a bunch of ground balls. While he's more of a back-end guy, Feldman figures to get the ball on Opening Day for the Astros.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Astros have agreed to terms with Scott Feldman on a three-year, $30 million contract.

Feldman still needs to pass a physical in order to make the deal official. The big right-hander signed for $6 million last winter but is able to cash in after putting up a 3.86 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 132/56 K/BB ratio in 181 2/3 innings. If the Astros don't make any other moves with their rotation, Feldman figures to be their Opening Day starter.

According to ESPN's Jerry Crasnick, free agent Scott Feldman wants at least three years, $30 million.

The price for starting pitching is high this winter and Feldman is trying to cash in after posting a solid 3.86 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 132/56 K/BB ratio in 181 2/3 innings this past summer between the Cubs and Orioles. Baltimore is said to have interest in re-signing him.
Thu, Dec 5, 2013 10:35:00 AM

According to MASN's Roch Kubatko, there is a "mutual attraction" between the Orioles and Scott Feldman.

Feldman, who can become a free agent this November, posted a 3.86 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 132/56 K/BB ratio in 181 2/3 innings this season between the Cubs and Orioles. He'll get offers from multiple teams if he hits the open market. The O's have the first shot at him.
