Astros' Brett Oberholtzer allows seven runs in rehab debut
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/30/15) Astros pitcher Brett Oberholtzer was rocked in his rehab debut with Triple-A Fresno Thursday, allowing seven earned runs on seven hits and one walk in 2 2/3 innings while striking out two.
Oberholtzer, who gave up one home run in the outing, is on the disabled list due to a blister on his throwing hand. He has yet to make a regular-season appearance this season but went 5-13 with a 4.39 ERA and 94:28 K:BB ratio in 143 2/3 innings in 2014.
Astros pitcher Brett Oberholtzer expected to begin rehab Thursday

|(4/28/15) Astros pitcher Brett Oberholtzer is expected to make his first rehab start Thursday for Triple-A Fresno, according to the Houston Chronicle.
Oberholtzer, who is currently on the 15-day DL with a blister on his throwing hand, has thrown three innings in an extended spring training session as well as batting practice. He is expected to throw 60-plus pitches in his outing for Fresno, according to MLB.com.
This is considered the last step for Oberholtzer to clear before he can rejoin the team. Oberholtzer posted a 5-13 record with a 4.39 ERA in 143 2/3 innings pitched.
Astros' Brett Oberholtzer tosses three innings in extended spring

|(4/25/15) Astros pitcher Brett Oberholtzer was able to throw three innings in an extended spring training game Saturday, according to The Houston Chronicle.
Oberholtzer, who is currently on the 15-day DL after picking up a blister on his left index finger, may be back with the big league club in a couple weeks. He posted a 5-13 record in 2014 with a 4.39 ERA and 94 strikeouts in 143 2/3 innings.
Astros' Brett Oberholtzer throws BP, to pitch in extended spring
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(4/20/15) Astros pitcher Brett Oberholtzer (blister) threw live batting practice Monday at the team's minor league complex in Kissimmee, FL, and is expected to pitch in an extend spring game towards the end of the week, according to MLB.com.|
Oberholtzer has been out all season with a blister on his index finger.
"I think it’s resolved," manager A.J. Hinch said of the blister. "Otherwise, we wouldn’t put him in a game. But it sounds like the skin over the finger is game ready."
Oberholtzer won’t be able to be inserted in the rotation until some time in May at the earliest, so Hinch said he'll throw two- to three-inning outings at first and build him up from there.
"We’re just happy to get him on the mound against competitive hitters, work on his pitching and not on his skin," Hinch added.
Oberholtzer was a candidate late in spring training for a spot in the Astros' starting rotation before the blister issue.
Astros LHP Oberholtzer set to throw live BP Monday
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(4/18/15) Astros left-hander Brett Oberholtzer, who has been sidelined all season with a blister on his index finger, has been cleared to throw a live bullpen session Monday, per MLB.com.
It remains to be seen if Oberholtzer works his way into the starting rotation. He was being considered for that role late in spring training before going down.
|2014 summary: Brett Oberholtzer's 2014 performance didn't match his surprisingly impressive rookie campaign (2.76 ERA, 1.10 WHIP), but for a time he appeared to be developing into a reliable deep league option. The Astros sent Oberholtzer to Triple-A Oklahoma City in early June, but after nearly a month in the minors, he returned with excellent control. Over his first eight post-demotion starts, Oberholtzer turned in seven quality starts, compiling a 3.02 ERA, 1.25 WHIP, a 1.7 BB/9 ratio and a 68 percent strikes-thrown rate along the way. He slumped over the final weeks of the season, ending up 5-13 with a 4.39 ERA.|
Playing time status: Oberholtzer is likely to begin the season as part of the Astros' rotation.
2015 outlook: Contact pitchers generally don't fare that well in Fantasy, but despite some underwhelming 2014 numbers, Oberholtzer could be one of the exceptions. He doesn't allow many walks, and for a flyball pitcher, he's not especially homer-prone. With better luck and defensive support on balls in play (.335 BABIP in 2014), Oberholtzer could be a reliable producer in deeper mixed leagues, and he may even be worth the occasional stream in standard mixed leagues.
