Astros' Brett Oberholtzer ejected on Saturday; optioned after game
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(6/27/15) Astros left-hander Brett Oberholtzer was ejected in the second inning of Saturday's game against the Yankees. Oberholtzer gave up a grand slam to Brian McCann and a two-run shot to Chris Young. Seemingly frustrated, Oberholtzer then threw a pitch behind Alex Rodriguez, and was immediately tossed by home-plate umpire Rob Drake.
Oberholtzer finished the game after 1 1/3 innings. He allowed six runs on four hits. He walked three and struck out one, but was left with a no-decision.
Following the game, the Astros announced they have optioned Oberholtzer to Triple-A Fresno.
"I think it's a little bit of everything," Hinch said, per MLB.com. "We got put in a tough spot in our bullpen where a lot of guys have been used. We're going to need an arm up here. Disappointed to have to do it."
Astros P Brett Oberholtzer allows two runs in no-decision

|(6/23/15) Astros pitcher Brett Oberholtzer gave up two earned runs in a no-decision during Monday night’s 4-3 loss to the Angels.
Oberholtzer went 5 2/3 innings, allowed four hits, walked four batters and struck out five. It was a solid effort from Oberholtzer, who didn’t get the needed run support to help him earn a win while he was in the game.
In six starts this season, Oberholtzer has yet to give up more than three earned runs in a game. Now 2-2, Oberholtzer has an ERA of 2.81.
His next start is projected for Saturday against the Yankees.
Astros' Brett Oberholtzer survives to pick up the win on Wednesday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(6/18/15) Astros left-hander Brett Oberholtzer posted his second consecutive quality start, as he beat the Rockies on Wednesday night. Oberholtzer allowed three runs on eight hits over 6 1/3 innings. He struck out five and did not walk a batter, as his ERA actually rose to 2.73 with this outing.
Oberholtzer (2-1) was fortunate to escape with the win, as the eight hits he allowed was a season-high. But the Rockies were unable to cash in on their opportunities, and the Astros bats paved the way to the 8-4 victory.
Oberholtzer will make his next start on Monday in Anaheim against the Angels.

Astros SP Brett Oberholtzer pecked to pieces by Blue Jays
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(6/6/15) The good vibes provided by Astros left-hander Brett Oberholtzer in his first two starts of the season coming off a finger injury dissipated Saturday in Toronto.
Oberholtzer was knocked out in the fourth inning after giving up four runs (two earned) on six hits. He walked three and fanned two as his ERA jumped from 3.24 to 4.91.
His afternoon started poorly when he surrendered an RBI single to Edwin Encarnacion in the first, then worsened in the second, when he gave up three runs on four hits. He seemingly had righted himself before his removal.
"When you start in that hole, it's tough to get back the momentum and rhythm you want," Astros manager A.J. Hinch said, per MLB.com.
Oberholtzer will attempt to straighten himself out next Friday, but it won't be easy to win. His mound opponent is Seattle stud Felix Hernandez.
|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.
