Astros' Oberholtzer to throw live BP before rehab assignment


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2015) Astros starting pitcher Brett Oberholtzer (finger) will throw live batting practice at Triple-A Fresno before beginning a rehab assignment, per MLB.com. He threw in the bullpen Thursday.

"Now he wants to face a few hitters, prior to a rehab assignment in Triple-A. I would imagine that would happen this weekend," manager A.J. Hinch said. "After that, it's the normal progression for a starter to get another bullpen and throw in a game. We're not too far removed from him being at that five-inning threshold. He'll probably be scheduled for four or five innings in that first outing in Triple-A."

Astros' Oberholtzer expected to begin Triple-A rehab assignment


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) Astros pitcher Brett Oberholtzer is expected to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Fresno in the coming days after throwing a bullpen session on Thursday, the Houston Chronicle reports.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2015) Astros left-hander Brett Oberholtzer will follow up his Tuesday bullpen session with another one Thursday, per MLB.com, which is reporting that he will then be scheduled to throw live BP and likely a rehab start.

Oberholtzer has spent nearly the entire year sidelined. His latest issue is a blister that has prevented him from pitching since May 13.

"He's never really been built up to the 100 pitches," manager A.J. Hinch said to the Houston Chronicle. "I'm not sure how we're going to test his blister anything more than volume. A lot’s got to happen between now and then. Then he’s got a couple of tests to pass and then one or two starts, I would imagine.

"But it all depends on how he responds to the volume of throwing and then obviously any need-based that we have here."

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

"He'll be an option," A.J. Hinch said. "I talked to Tony [DeFrancesco Thursday]. We'll meet as a staff and talk about what that means. We have the off-day (Monday) to play with, so I'm not under large duress in making a decision yet.

"Given he went deep into the game and his pitch total got into the mid 70s, he's certainly an option that we're going to look at," Hinch said.

Astros' Brett Oberholtzer throws BP, to pitch in extended spring


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/20/2015) 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.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Oberholtzer  is dealing with a blister on his left index finger, and will have his DL stint backdated to March 31.

"It's a blister. It's not an arm injury," Oberholtzer said. "I just have to wait until the skin heals and take a little time and get back at it. ... I'm just day to day right how, obviously. I'll just wait until the skin heals up and gets right and allows me to make pitches comfortably and not deal with any side effects from the skin."

"I was trying to push it pretty hard, but I felt like I was going about it in a wise way," Fields said. "I made pretty quick progress. The fact that they've laid something out for me like that I think is going to help of 'OK, I can relax. I have a plan now of when I'm supposed to be back and just make sure everything is good and right.'"

Peacock, who is recovering from offseason hip surgery, will start the first game of the season at Triple-A Fresno, per MLB.com. His DL will be backdated to March 30.
