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. Jul 9 - 7:13 PM

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.
Apr 26 - 8:28 PM

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.
Apr 25 - 1:13 AM

Scott Feldman struggled Tuesday, allowing six hits and four runs -- three earned -- over five innings in a loss to the Rangers.

It wasn't a great beginning for Feldman, who served up a two-run homer to Prince Fielder and had allowed three runs before the first inning was over. He settled down some after that, but the damage was already done. Feldman also walked three while striking out just one. The right-hander fell to 0-2 with a 4.11 ERA and 1.63 WHIP overall. With Lance McCullers working his way back, Feldman's time in the rotation is likely dwindling. That won't be this week, though, so Feldman will still take the hill Sunday against the Red Sox.
Apr 20 - 12:37 AM

Scott Feldman held the Royals to two unearned runs over 6 1/3 innings on Wednesday.

Feldman's own error led to the unearned runs. He has a 3.48 ERA after two starts, but his WHIP stands at 1.55 and he's allowed two homers. The decision on who goes to the pen after Lance McCullers Jr. returns will probably come down to Feldman and Mike Fiers.
Apr 13 - 11:59 PM

Scott Feldman was tagged with four runs over four innings in a loss to the Astros on Friday.

Feldman put himself in an early hole by giving up three runs in the first inning on home runs from Scooter Gennett and Chris Carter. He fanned five and walked three in the loss. Feldman posted a 3.90 ERA over 18 starts last season and could be headed for the bullpen when Lance McCullers (shoulder) is ready to come off the disabled list.
Apr 9 - 12:29 AM

Scott Feldman gave up three runs in 3 2/3 innings Monday against the Nationals.

Feldman clinched his rotation spot when the next came down that Lance McCullers was DL bound. Otherwise, though, he might have opened up in middle relief. He's not much of a fantasy option outside of deep AL-only leagues.
Mar 21 - 4:43 PM

Scott Feldman retired all six Blue Jays he faced in his start Sunday.

Feldman hasn't had any problems this spring as he makes his way back from the shoulder problems that ended his 2015 season. It's still going to be a tough call for the Astros to put him in the rotation, even though he makes the most money of any pitcher on the staff. He wouldn't be a bad fifth starter, but they'd seem to have five better options, especially if Doug Fister's velocity comes back some.
Mar 6 - 4:19 PM

Scott Feldman (shoulder) said Monday that he expects to be 100 percent for the beginning of spring training.

Feldman was shut down last September due to a sprained right shoulder, but he's been on a throwing program this offseason and says he feels "better than I have in years." The Astros don't seem to be convinced, as they recently signed Doug Fister, which could push Feldman to the bullpen or maybe the disabled list to start the season.
Feb 1 - 4:52 PM

Scott Feldman (shoulder) has been playing catch in California for several weeks and hopes to begin throwing bullpen sessions early next month.

Feldman sprained his shoulder in September but was cleared to resume throwing in November. He shouldn't be limited in spring training and is obviously on track for Opening Day. Pitchers and catchers report to the Astros' facility in Kissimmee, Fla. on February 18.
Jan 23 - 8:30 PM

Scott Feldman (shoulder) has been cleared to begin his normal offseason throwing program.

Feldman was shut down in September with a right shoulder sprain. It's certainly encouraging that he's been cleared to throw, but the Astros aren't committing to him being 100 percent for the start of spring training.

Astros activated RHP Scott Feldman from the 60-day disabled list.

Feldman made 18 starts, posting a 3.90 ERA, before a right shoulder sprain in early September necessitated his shutdown. The 32-year-old will make $8 million in 2016, the last year on his current deal.
