The Astros have announced that Scott Feldman will be placed on the disabled list with right biceps tendinitis.

Feldman has been one of the few bright spots for the Astros thus far, posting a 1.69 ERA through his first four starts. But it’s not that bright as he has walked as many as he has struck out.

Collin McHugh will be called up to fill Feldman’s spot on the roster.

    Aw man. This sucks. Poor kid was a pitching bright spot on a team with little else going for it. I hope its nothing serious.

      Ouch. Hitting the Astros at their thinnest point. I hope this resolves pretty quickly.

    His numbers are deceiving, Craig touched on it as well.

    With all those walks, it was a matter of time before the ERA went up, like his last outing.

    I agree with you, feldman was carrying a lot of weight for the pitching staff. They will miss him, even if its just a short time. Best regards for Houston getting a healthy Feldman back. Additionally, be positive the Astros have a bright outlook in their future.

    “Feldman has been one of the few bright spots for the Astros thus far, posting a 1.69 ERA through his first four starts. But it’s not that bright as he has walked as many as he has struck out.”

    Uh actually as long as you’re getting the job done, you still qualify as a “bright spot,” even if your peripherals don’t look too good. Games are played on the field today in the here and now. The games that he and the Astros have won with that 1.69 ERA don’t count any less just because he’s walked some guys along the way.

      Feldman does give the Astros valve because he has always been an innings eater and fairly consistent presence in the pitching rotation.

      Nobody thought he was going to be a star when the Astros signed him. But a solid #3 pitcher who could eat close to 200 innings is still the best thing about the Astros pitching lineup. I have no doubt he was due for a bit of a regression. But they will still miss him every fifth day.

    Feldman, from across the hall. I always wondered what happened to that guy.
