Since joining the Blue Jays, Feldman is 1-1 with a 9.72 ERA and 10 strikeouts over six relief appearances (8.1 innings).

EDGE Analysis

Feldman picked up the win against the Yankees on Aug. 16 by allowing just one run on three hits over three innings. Outside of that impressive five-strikeout performance, the 12th-year veteran has been miserable since being acquired at the beginning of the month. With 183 career starts to his name, Feldman is best suited for long relief work when disaster strikes a starting pitcher in the early innings -- which doesn't happen often with the Jays sporting one of the best rotations in the majors this season. The team already uses a six-man rotation, so the right-hander isn't even in the mix for a spot start. Feldman has very little, if any, fantasy value in most leagues.

Feldman pitched a scoreless seventh inning in Friday's one-run victory over the Royals.

EDGE Analysis

Feldman's second appearance for the Jays was much better than his first. After not recording an out August 1 against Houston, he was able to set down the Royals top three hitters in order Friday. It's highly unlikely that Feldman will make much of an impact with his new team, but Toronto's bullpen has been in flux much of the season, so anyone who can throw clean innings will get their fair share of work.

Feldman was traded to the Blue Jays on Monday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's not a splashy acquisition, but Feldman has pitched well this season (2.90 ERA, 1.24 WHIP), and will give the Blue Jays the option of skipping Aaron Sanchez down the stretch. Feldman figures to join the bullpen initially, replacing Jesse Chavez in a long-relief role.

Feldman left Saturday's game after apparently rolling his ankle on the mound, the San Francisco Chronicle's Susan Slusser reports.

EDGE Analysis

He had tossed 3.2 scoreless innings of relief against the A's before coming out after a visit from the trainer. Chris Devenski replaced him in the top of the ninth inning. Feldman has been operating in a swingman role for the Astros of late, and could see some starts in the second half if he is healthy. His status will be updated when the team officially comments on the exact nature of the injury.

Feldman is not expected to make another start before the All-Star break, the Houston Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

The right-hander's strong showing against the Angels last week led manager A.J. Hinch to contemplate closing out the first half with with a six-man rotation, but the rotation will likely remain on schedule with Feldman needed as insurance out of the bullpen. Doug Fister, Collin McHugh, Lance McCullers and Dallas Keuchel are expected start the Astros' final four games before the break (in that order), but Feldman seems to be back in the conversation for starts over the final two and a half months.

Feldman's solid outing Tuesday may have bought him another opportunity in the Astros' rotation, the Houston Chronicle's Jake Kaplan reports. "I'll think about it," manager A.J. Hinch said Wednesday of the idea of giving Feldman more starts. "We have 11 games counting today between now and the break and I think he's done everything to warrant that consideration."

EDGE Analysis

It is not clear who the Astros would bump from the rotation, or if they would just give Feldman a chance via a six-man rotation heading into the All-Star break. He has a 3.65 ERA and 15 strikeouts in 24.2 innings as a starter this year, and his fantasy upside would be limited due to the lack of strikeouts if he found his way back into a rotation spot.

Feldman (5-3) picked up the win Tuesday over the Angels as he allowed just one unearned run on three hits with two strikeouts over five innings.

EDGE Analysis

Feldman has been pitching out of the bullpen since May, so he was only able to go 65 pitches despite the fact that he cruised through the Angels' lineup. Lance McCullers was supposed to take this start but missed it due to a blister; if it heals up quickly as expected, Feldman will likely head back to the bullpen, where he has a 1.85 ERA and 9.5 K/BB in 24.1 innings this season.

Feldman will make a spot start Tuesday against the Angels, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com rpeorts.

EDGE Analysis

Lance McCullers is currently dealing with a blister, but he isn't expected to miss more than one start at this time. As such, expect Feldman to return to the bullpen shortly, where he has been pitching much better (1.85 ERA, 9.5 K/BB in 24.1 relief innings; 4.58 ERA, 1.2 K/BB in 19.2 innings as starter).

Feldman allowed one run during two innings of action during Houston's victory over Arizona on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Feldman showed significant improvement in May, posting a 2.84 ERA after pitching 12.2 innings as a reliever. His control made the most progress, for his K/BB ratio of 13.0 was monumentally better than April's mark of 1.5. Feldman's opponent batting average remains high, currently sitting at .284, but it's apparent that the 33-year-old righty is much more suited for a bullpen role at this point in his career, as his ERA is the third lowest among the Astros' relievers.

Feldman threw three perfect inning out of the bullpen and struck out three in Saturday's 2-0 loss to the A's.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran acquitted himself very well in his first relief appearance since 2012, breezing through three innings on just 34 pitches, 22 of which went for strikes. The purpose of the role reversal Saturday between Feldman and rookie Chris Devenski was to give the latter an extended look, and the experiment worked out very well all around.
