Scott Feldman Headshot

Feldman (3-4) allowed just a single run on four hits and two walks while striking out a season-high nine batters through six innings during Monday's win over Cleveland.

Added 12:40 am (EST)
The veteran has been hit or miss this season, as he's allowed 16 earned runs through 11.2 innings over just three starts but only nine runs in his other seven outings. As a result, his 3.99 ERA and 1.28 WHIP are a little misleading. Feldman has pitched reasonably well and is providing serviceable numbers for deeper settings. He projects to face the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park in his next start this weekend.

Feldman (2-4) gave up seven runs (five earned) on five hits and three walks over 2.2 innings in Wednesday's 7-5 loss to the Cubs. He struck out four and also hit a batter.

Added 05/18/17 6:50 am (EST)
After a 1-2-3 first inning, the Cubs wore the 34-year-old righty out playing station-to-station ball, as only one of their hits (a Ben Zobrist double) went for extra bases. Feldman's success this season has depended on his control. In starts where he's walked one batter or none, he has a 0.93 ERA; in starts where he walked two or more, an 8.86 ERA. He'll try to get back on track Monday at home against Cleveland.

Feldman held the Giants to two runs over seven innings in Friday's extra-inning loss, giving up seven hits (one homer) and a walk, striking out two.

The two strikeouts illustrate the problem with Feldman -- he has only 34 strikeouts in 47.2 innings -- so while his 3.59 ERA and 1.22 WHIP are good ratios, he hurts you vis-a-vis other starters in strikeouts.

Feldman (2-3) tossed a four-hit, complete-game shutout while allowing one walk and striking out five in Sunday's 4-0 win over the Giants.

He retired the side in order to close out the ninth for his third career shutout and first since he was a member of the Astros in 2014. Coming into the game, he was 1-5 in six career starts against San Francisco. The dazzling 119-pitch effort Sunday was a good sign after Feldman gave up a whopping seven runs and six hits over four innings his last time out. The 34-year-old veteran has pitched above expectations so far this year, and while his strikeouts may be up, his 3.5 BB/9 and 4.26 xFIP should remind owners that he can be prone to blowup outings along the way.

Feldman (1-3) was crushed for seven runs on six hits and a pair of walks in Tuesday's loss to Pittsburgh.

Added 05/03/17 1:06 pm (EST)
This was the worst outing he's had all year, as Feldman came into Tuesday's action with surprisingly solid stats boosted by an increase in strikeout rate. However, his walk rate's also spiked and it's hard to see him sustaining his 7.7 K/9, so there's little reason for fantasy owners to invest in most formats.

Feldman (1-2) gave up four runs on five hits and five walks over five innings in Tuesday's 9-1 loss to the Brewers. He struck out five.

Added 04/26/17 5:39 am (EST)
It's the second time in three starts Feldman has walked five batters, an uncharacteristic bout of wildness for a pitcher who's posted a BB/9 of 2.5 or less in each of the last three seasons. The 34-year-old will try to get back on track in his next trip to the mound Monday at home against the Pirates.

Feldman gave up just a single run on four hits over seven innings in Thursday's no-decision against Baltimore. He struck out four.

Feldman and Wade Miley engaged in an impressive pitchers' duel, but the Cincy bullpen blew it. The veteran righty now has a shiny-looking 2.38 ERA, but his 4.02 FIP presents a more authentic picture of what he brings to the table. Feldman's finished the last four seasons with ERAs under 4.00, but his high-contact approach on the mound makes him a volatile fantasy asset.

Feldman gave up three runs on seven hits (including two first-inning homers) and two walks over 4.2 innings on Monday, striking out six while getting the loss against the Phillies.

Added 04/03/17 10:10 pm (EST)
Feldman gave up a homer to Cesar Hernandez to start the game and fell behind 3-0 by the second inning. At least to his credit he held the line there before getting pulled in the fifth inning. This probably won't end up being a reprise of the Alfredo Simon "innings-eater" experience from 2016, but Feldman's upside isn't that much higher.

Feldman will be the Reds' Opening Day starter.

Added 03/20/17 1:22 pm (EST)
The Reds will be the third team for which Feldman will take the mound on Opening Day, and it'll mark his first official appearance for the club. Feldman split last season between the Astros and the Blue Jays, compiling a combined 3.97 ERA and 1.37 WHIP across 40 appearances (five starts).
