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.

Astros placed RHP Scott Feldman on the 60-day disabled list with a right shoulder sprain.

Feldman had already been ruled out for the remainder of the season. This move opens a 40-man roster spot.

Scott Feldman has been ruled out for the season after being diagnosed with a right shoulder sprain.

The right-hander had the best ERA in the American League in August at 1.33 but went down with the shoulder ailment in his first September start. Feldman won't require surgery, as the hope is that rest and rehab will be enough to get him ready for the start of next season.

Scott Feldman still felt soreness in his ailing right shoulder when he played catch Saturday.

An MRI ruled out any structural damage in Feldman's shoulder, but clearly he's not anywhere close to returning to game action. "We’re going to have to get him reevaluated some more this next week," Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. "It didn’t go particularly well. We’ll have to regroup and find out what is next for him."

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.

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.

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.
Tue, Aug 18, 2015 11:49:00 PM

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.

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.
Fri, Aug 7, 2015 01:52:00 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.
