|Scott Feldman succeeding with same repertoire|
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(5/20/13) Cubs pitcher Scott Feldman is having a breakout season but isn't doing anything drastically different.
Feldman is utilizing the same four-pitch mix he's always used. Aside from throwing his changeup less, Feldman's using most of his pitches at the same rate. That's not necessarily a bad thing, as Feldman has been fairly effective the past two years. Although he had a 5.09 ERA last year, his 3.98 FIP was a much better indicator on how he should have performed. He had an equally strong 3.99 FIP in 32 innings in 2011.
Feldman is certainly pitching over his head, but could still post a solid ERA once regression hits. The bigger issue for Fantasy owners is whether he'll do enough to remain on teams once his ERA starts to rise. Feldman isn't a strong strikeout pitcher, and won't get Fantasy teams many points in that area. He could be a sell-high. Feldman will take on the Reds Friday.

(5/18/13) Cubs starting pitcher Scott Feldman won his fourth decision in a row Saturday on the strength of six-plus shutout innings vs. the Mets.
Feldman scattered seven hits and a walk in 6 2/3 innings, striking out six. He had four groundball outs and nine fly ball outs while throwing 68 of 109 pitches for strikes.
Feldman lowered his ERA to 2.19, and it was his fifth quality start in a row. He is 4-3 after losing his first three starts.
Despite the return of Matt Garza, Feldman will remain in the rotation. His next start is Friday against the Reds.

(5/12/13) Cubs starter Scott Feldman was left with a no decision despite six solid innings Sunday against Washington.
Feldman allowed a run on five hits and three walks and struck out six. Feldman has gone at least five innings with no more than two earned runs in his last five starts since two rough starts to open the season. Hhis ERA is 2.53.
|Carlos Villanueva, Scott Feldman at risk of demotion|
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(5/11/13) With Matt Garza pitching at Triple-A Iowa and seemingly nearing a return from the disabled list, the Cubs have decisions to make in the rotation. According to the Chicago Tribune, Edwin Jackson, Travis Wood and Jeff Samardzija are not at risk of being sent to the bullpen upon Garza's return.
That leaves Scott Feldman and Carlos Villanueva as the two candidates for demotion when Garza re-joins the rotation. Both pitchers have been among the team's best, with Villanueva sporting a 3.02 ERA and Feldman down at 2.70.
At this point, it is not clear how many more minor-league rehab starts Garza is expected to throw.
"Like I said, we'll cross that bridge when we get to it," Cubs manager Dale Sveum told the Tribune. "It's a nice problem to have, but it's getting closer to that date and it's not a cut-and-dried situation."
|Not buying Scott Feldman|
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(5/7/13) Allowing just two runs on five hits with two walks and 15 strikeouts in 16 innings, Scott Feldman has been highly un-Scott Feldman in his last two starts.
See what I did there?
The Cubs right-hander is pretty much the definition of mediocrity, so I wouldn't read too much into these last two starts. Other than the numbers, the biggest change in his last two starts is that he has thrown his cutter more -- about one-third of the time instead of one-fourth of the time. But he's thrown his cutter just as often in past seasons, and it hasn't amounted to anything particularly useful.
I still see Feldman as strictly an NL-only option.
|After spending the first eight years of his career with the Rangers, Scott Feldman signed with the Cubs in November and will call Wrigley home for at least one year. Feldman's an interesting pitcher, as he finished 2012 with a 5.09 ERA and 1.38 WHIP in 123 2/3 innings in 21 starts and eight relief appearances. Feldman has said he prefers starting and the one season in which he started more than 25 games (2009, with 31) was arguably his best year, with a 4.08 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 113 strikeouts in 189 2/3 innings. Feldman's seen his strikeout rate rise from 5.4 in 2009 to 7.0 in 2012, but he's been wildly inconsistent throughout his career. And if the upside of having Feldman in his supposed comfort zone of being a starter is a 4.08 ERA, he can be left to the late rounds of deeper leagues and middle rounds of NL-only leagues.
