Astros return to a five-man rotation for now
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
|(9/14/14) The Astros are skipping Brad Peacock's scheduled start on Monday against the Indians, as he is dealing with a sore lower back. Rather than replace Peacock, the Astros will move up their other five starters a day and, at least temporarily, put an end to their six-man rotation. Collin McHugh, Nick Tropeano, Brett Oberholtzer and Scott Feldman are now set to start against the Indians, and Dallas Keuchel will take the mound to open the weekend series against the Mariners on Friday.
There is currently no timetable for Peacock's return.

Over his last three starts covering 15 innings, Oberholtzer has allowed 14 earned runs. He owns a 4.51 ERA and a 1.37 WHIP over 22 starts (131 2/3 innings). He will make his next start Thursday at home against Cleveland.
Brett Oberholtzer reaches seventh in win
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(9/6/14) Astros pitcher Brett Oberholtzer posted a quality start Friday against the Athletics.
Oberholtzer gave up three runs on seven hits over 6 1/3 innings. He struck out one and walked two during the outing. All three runs scored in the third inning. After giving up a leadoff single, Oberholtzer managed to load the bases with two walks. With the bases loaded, Derek Norris managed to single in two runs. Adam Dunn would later add another run on a single. After a visit to the mound, Oberholtzer was able to get the third out to end the inning. He was pulled after putting a man on in the seventh inning.
With the win, Oberholtzer improved to 5-10. He’ll take on the Mariners in his next start.
|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.
