5 Comments

Astros right-hander Scott Feldman is expected to miss six weeks following surgery to repair a torn mensicus in his right knee.

Feldman, who’s in the second season of a three-year, $30 million deal, started 10 games with a 4.80 ERA and 37/14 K/BB ratio in 60 innings before the injury. He had a 3.74 ERA in 29 starts for Houston last year.

Brett Oberholtzer figures to take Feldman’s rotation spot and the Astros added Double-A call-up Michael Feliz to the roster for bullpen help.
