Brett Oberholtzer (SP, HOU) - Waiver Wire Analysis

Chris Lacey - RotoBaller

BALLER MOVE: Continue Scouting

ANALYSIS: Oberholtzer is pitching since his callup, with a 2.53 ERA in 21.1 innings pitched. He has just allowed two HR while striking out 12 and walking just two batters. The youngster is holding the opposition to just a .143 BA in their last 49 at-bats against him. He handles pressure well, with teams just hitting .231 when runners are in scoring position. If the Astros were a little more consistent with their run scoring, Oberholtzer might have some more appeal in deep mixed leagues; for right now he is at best an AL-only option until the strikeouts improve.
