|Brett Oberholtzer has a rough outing against Yankees |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(8/19/14) Astros pitcher Brett Oberholtzer had a tough outing Tuesday against the Yankees.
Oberholtzer allowed four runs on seven hits over 5 1/3 innings. He struck out seven and walked one. Oberholtzer turned in three scoreless innings before Brian McCann took him deep for a two-run shot in the third inning. The Astros managed to give Oberholtzer a lead in the sixth, but he couldn’t hold on. Oberholtzer gave up a leadoff single to lead off the bottom of the frame. That base-runner advanced to second on a balk. Oberholtzer then walked Carlos Beltran, and gave up a two-run double against Martin Prado, tying the game at four. He was replaced by Tony Sipp.
Oberholtzer will take on the Indians in his next start.

(8/13/14) One run allowed in seven innings was not good enough Wednesday to provide Astros starter Brett Oberholtzer a win. It was bad enough to lower his record to 4-8.
The left-hander yielded only a homer to Joe Mauer. He allowed six hits, walked none and fanned four for his sixth straight quality starter. Oberholtzer has surrendered only 12 runs in his last 41 innings pitched.
He will seek to maintain his momentum Tuesday against the host Yankees.

(8/8/14) Astros pitcher Brett Oberholtzer didn't factor into Friday's decision after giving up two earned runs on six hits and one walk in seven innings and striking out four in his team's 4-3 victory over the Rangers.
Oberholtzer served up a two-run home run in the top of the first inning and was in line for the loss before the offense finally came around with three runs in the bottom of the eighth. He owns a 4.05 ERA and 62:22 K:BB ratio in 97 2/3 innings after putting together five straight quality starts. Oberholtzer is scheduled to face the Twins Wednesday.

The win improved him to 4-7 on the year. Over his last two starts covering 13 2/3 innings, Oberholtzer has allowed five earned runs. The southpaw will seek his third straight win Friday at home against Texas.

(7/29/14) Astros pitcher Brett Oberholtzer turned in a quality start Monday night against the A's, improving to 3-7 on the year. The southpaw permitted three runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out two over 6 2/3 innings of a 7-3 victory.
Oberholtzer picked up his first win since May 30. Over his last three starts covering 20 innings, Oberholtzer has allowed seven earned runs. He owns a 4.30 ERA and 53:20 K:BB ratio in 83 2/3 innings. He will make his next start Saturday at home against Toronto.
|Of the spare parts the Astros received from the Braves for Michael Bourn in 2011, Brett Oberholtzer was the closest to being a prospect, but given his minor-league numbers since the trade, he was beginning to look like a lost cause. That is, until the Astros threw caution to the wind and promoted him, giving him a regular turn in the rotation beginning July 31. In his 10 starts, he compiled a 2.24 ERA and 1.06 WHIP. He was efficient, only once walking more than two batters in a game, and he even threw a shutout on Sept. 1. True, he averaged only 5.7 strikeouts per nine innings, but that isn't his game. In the minors, at least the later years, he was a control artist, and he lacks the stuff to be anything else. Of course, he was also hit a lot harder in the minors, which is the reason for all the skepticism. Keep in mind, though, he spent most of the last two seasons at Triple-A Oklahoma City of the Pacific Coast League, which is no place for fly-ball pitchers who don't miss bats. Oberholtzer will serve up some home runs in the majors as well, so he'll have to keep his walks down to remain relevant. The reward may not justify the risk in mixed leagues, but he has some sleeper appeal.
