Astros' Brett Oberholtzer ejected on Saturday; optioned after game


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/27/2015) 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


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6/23/2015) 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
(6/18/2015) 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' Brett Oberholtzer pitches eight shutout innings in win


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/13/2015) Astros starter Brett Oberholtzer evened his record at 1-1 with a win over Seattle on Friday.

Astros SP Brett Oberholtzer pecked to pieces by Blue Jays


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/6/2015) 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.


Astros SP Brett Oberholtzer allows two runs in Monday's win


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(6/1/2015) Astros pitcher Brett Oberholtzer gave up two runs on seven hits during Monday's 5-2 win over the Orioles.

Oberholtzer threw 5 1/3 innings while striking out three and walking two, but he received a no-decision for his effort. He threw 59 of his 82 pitches for strikes.

It was just his second start this season. Oberholtzer only lasted three innings after allowing one run on five hits in his first start. His ERA now stands at 3.24. His next expected start is scheduled for Saturday at Toronto.

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 Brett Oberholtzer to throw minor league BP

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

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."
