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. Sep 24 - 11:26 PM

Scott Feldman was magnificent on Thursday, holding the Indians to one run over eight innings, but took a no-decision as the Astros were felled in 13 innings.

The Indians couldn't get anything going against Feldman, who yielded the one run in the ninth inning after allowing a lead-off ground-rule double to Michael Bourn. Bourn later came around to score when Chad Qualls allowed an RBI single to Carlos Santana. Feldman yielded only four hits and a walk while striking out two batters. The right-hander has a 3.82 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, and 101/46 K/BB ratio. He'll look to hit the win column for the first time in September when he takes the hill on the road against the Rangers on Tuesday.

Scott Feldman allowed three runs in 8 1/3 innings Saturday in the Astros' loss to the A's.

Houston had a lead in the ninth inning, but Feldman allowed two singles and then Chad Qualls gave up the tying runs and the walkoff. Feldman was mostly excellent, yielding just seven hits in all while striking out six and walking none. He threw his first shutout of the season last Saturday against the Rangers and seems to be rolling now. That three-year, $30 million contract no longer looks so awful.
Sep 6 - 6:50 PM

Scott Feldman tossed his first shutout of the season Saturday as the Astros beat the Rangers 2-0.

Feldman carved his way easily through the Texas lineup, allowing only three hits and a walk while striking out five. He's been a disappointment for the most part in his first year of a three-year, $30 million contract, but this outing was truly dominant. Feldman will carry an 8-10 record, 4.09 ERA, and 1.41 WHIP into his next start on the road against the A's.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Scott Feldman has cleared revocable waivers.

It's no surprise that he cleared given that he's owed what's left on his $12 million salary for 2014 and is under contract for $18 million more through 2016. However, it's possible Feldman could draw some interest, particularly if the Astros would be willing to pick up a little bit of his deal. The big righty holds a 4.37 ERA on the season but has pitched well in four out of his last five starts.
Aug 25 - 6:45 PM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Scott Feldman has been placed on revocable waivers.

We'll find out on Monday whether he was claimed. It seems unlikely given his $30 million contract and 4.37 ERA this season, but perhaps a team desperate for a starter like the Angels will take a shot. Feldman has pitched well of late other than a clunker in Boston on August 14.
Aug 24 - 11:05 AM

Scott Feldman earned his seventh win of the season, limiting the Yankees to two runs over 6 2/3 innings on Wednesday.

Feldman was excellent, holding the Yankees to only two extra-base hits over the course of the evening. Overall, he surrendered eight hits, walked two, and struck out seven. He was in line for the loss until the Astros' offense put up a four-run seventh inning. The right-hander has a 4.37 ERA, a 1.43 WHIP, and a 78/42 K/BB ratio. Feldman will toe the rubber on Monday at home against the Athletics next.
Aug 20 - 10:44 PM

Scott Feldman suffered his ninth loss of the season after he was torched for seven runs in 5 1/3 innings by the Red Sox on Tuesday.

Feldman had the game under control through five innings, allowing only one run -- on a ground ball double play -- in the fourth. But the Red Sox put their first three batters on base to start the sixth, and the floodgates opened. Even after Feldman was chased, neither Darin Downs nor Mike Foltynewicz could put the fire out. On the night, Feldman allowed nine hits and a pair of walks while recording just one strikeout. The right-hander has done a good job for the Astros this season, but Thursday's effort balloons his ERA to 4.45. He'll try to bring it back down in a road start on Wednesday against the Yankees.
Aug 14 - 10:49 PM

Scott Feldman limited the Blue Jays to one run and eight hits in a complete-game, 6-1 victory on Sunday.

Feldman needed 109 pitches to finish off the Jays, inducing 18 ground balls while striking out just two. The win was his first in over a month, bringing his record to 5-8. The right-hander has a 4.13 ERA on the year, and he'll go for win No. 6 when he takes on the Rangers on Saturday.
Aug 3 - 7:57 PM

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports that the Astros have made starting pitcher Scott Feldman available.

But the 30-year-old right-hander signed a three-year, $30 million contract with Houston last offseason and hasn't pitched well enough to justify it, so the Astros may have a hard time finding a trade partner. Feldman owns a 4.39 ERA and 1.42 WHIP in 19 starts this season.

Scott Feldman kept the A's to one run on five hits over seven innings but walked away with a no-decision on Tuesday.

Feldman was in line for his fifth win, but a complete meltdown from closer Chad Qualls rendered Feldman's work meaningless. It's been that kind of year for the right-hander, who loses when he gets shelled and rarely wins when he pitches well. Feldman has a 4.39 ERA through 19 starts but remains 4-8 on the season. He'll look for a better fate Sunday against the Blue Jays.
Jul 29 - 11:48 PM

Scott Feldman was tagged for six runs in 5 1/3 innings by the A's in Thursday's loss.

The last two of those runs came after he was pulled in the sixth. That was some odd timing: he was allowed to face three straight left-handed hitters to start the inning and retired the last of them, but then he was pulled when Josh Donaldson came to the plate. Feldman has just one win in his last 10 starts, and he's 4-8 with a 4.60 ERA overall. It's disappointing, for sure, but then, it matters more to the Astros how he pitches in 2015 and '16 than it does this year.
Jul 24 - 6:53 PM

Scott Feldman pitched well in a losing effort against the White Sox on Friday, allowing three runs on seven hits over his seven innings.

Feldman fanned two and walked three on the night. He cruised through the first five innings without any difficulty, but was tagged by Dayan Viciedo for a two-run homer in the sixth inning, and Tyler Flowers delivered the game-winner with an RBI double in the seventh. He'll look to get back in the win column when he takes on the Athletics in Oakland on Thursday.
Jul 19 - 12:59 AM

Scott Feldman was knocked around for a season-high seven runs over 5 1/3 innings in a loss to the Red Sox on Friday.

Feldman had gone at least five innings with three earned runs or fewer allowed over his last five starts, but he allowed an army of baserunners Friday by giving up 11 hits and three walks. His ERA jumped from 3.86 to 4.33 with the loss. That's his new high-water mark for the year.
Jul 12 - 12:06 AM

Scott Feldman allowed three runs over six innings in a loss to the Braves on Tuesday.

Feldman was hurt by the long ball, as two of the three runs came on solo homers. It was still a largely positive outing for the right-hander, as he allowed just four hits and a walk in all. Despite pitching better of late, Feldman still hasn't gotten a win since May 26 and fell to 3-5 with Tuesday's result. He'll look for his first win this month when the Tigers come to town on Sunday.
