Feldman (knee) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Sunday, Zach Buchanan of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Feldman was already ruled out for the season after undergoing season-ending arthroscopic surgery on his right knee days earlier, so his move to the 60-day DL is merely a formality. The transaction will open up a spot on the 40-man roster for Tyler Mahle, whose contract was selected from Triple-A Louisville in advance of his scheduled start Sunday against the Pirates.

Feldman underwent season-ending arthroscopic surgery to clean out his right knee Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

This is a tough break for Feldman, who has been bothered by knee issues for most of the season. Rather than try to pitch through the recurring knee soreness, Feldman decided to cut his losses and focus on getting healthy for next season. The 34-year-old will finish the season with an unremarkable 4.77 ERA and 1.36 WHIP through 111.1 innings (21 starts). He's a free agent in the offseason, so he may have thrown his last pitch for the Reds.

Feldman was placed back on the 10-day DL with right knee inflammation following Thursday's start against the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

The right-hander was clearly still feeling the affects of a nagging knee injury that has been plaguing him for much of the 2017 campaign. Feldman was recently activated off the DL on Aug. 12, and made two sub-par starts before heading back prior to Friday's game. There doesn't appear to be a clear cut timetable for Feldman at this point, while he admitted that he's "not really feeling too confident" about the knee injury at this point in time. It seems likely that the club will slide Asher Wojciechowski into the rotation in his place.

Feldman dealt with renewed knee soreness during Thursday's start against the Cubs, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. "If it doesn't get any better, I don't think I can pitch like that anymore," Feldman said. "We'll see."

EDGE Analysis

The right-hander went on to admit that he's "not really feeling too confident" about the knee. He's been bothered by knee soreness for the entire season, but the discomfort finally got bad enough after the All-Star break to force him to the DL. The injury has been affecting his velocity, and while it bounced back in his first start off the DL last week, Feldman's fastball was sitting in the low-80s Thursday. He may not throw another pitch for the Reds.

Feldman allowed six runs on seven hits while striking out just a single batter through 3.2 innings during Thursday's win over the Cubs. He didn't factor into the decision.

EDGE Analysis

The 34-year-old veteran allowed three runs through just four innings to Milwaukee in his return from the disabled list last time out, and this was another abbreviated outing. Feldman allowed five home runs to the Cubs to open the flood gates after being handed a nine-run lead in the second inning. The righty sports a 4.77 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 7.5 K/9, so it's probably wise to be selective with his matchups and avoid him against daunting opponents in the immediate future. Feldman projects to face the Cubs again in his next start, but this time the game is at Great American Ball Park.

Feldman gave up three runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out six over four innings in a no-decision against the Brewers on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

He was greeted harshly by Milwaukee in his return from a knee injury, with three runs scoring on a Travis Shaw homer before Feldman recorded his second out. The pitch count crept up in a hurry and that resulted in one of his earliest non-injury-related exits of the season. Feldman pitched surprisingly well over the first three months, but home runs are a growing concern, and he lines up to face the Cubs in back-to-back starts.

Feldman (knee) was activated from the 10-day disabled list and confirmed as the starting pitcher for Saturday's game against the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Feldman is back with the big club and ready to make his first start in nearly a month. The 34-year-old, who compiled a 4.34 ERA and 1.31 WHIP in 19 starts before landing on the shelf, is expected to take the place of Tim Adleman in the Reds' rotation, though a corresponding roster move has yet to be announced.

Feldman (knee) has been confirmed to start Saturday against the Brewers, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

It will be the right-hander's first action since he was placed on the DL back in July due to an ailing right knee, and should initiate his full return to the rotation in place of Tim Adleman. Feldman was mashed for nine earned runs over his last two starts before heading to the disabled list, so he'll be looking to make a strong return following a steady progression of rehabilitation, though he does own a 5.40 ERA in a pair of outings against Milwaukee this year.

The Reds are hopeful that Feldman (knee) will be able to return from the 10-day disabled list to start Saturday's game against the Brewers, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Feldman hasn't pitched in a game since July 17 due to right knee inflammation, but since the right-hander has been able to throw multiple bullpen sessions along with a three-inning simulated game Aug. 2, the Reds aren't expected to send him out on a rehab assignment prior to his activation. Assuming Feldman's knee provides no complications while he runs and fields his position over the next few days, he'll reclaim his rotation spot Saturday, with Tim Adleman likely heading back to the bullpen.

Feldman (knee) will probably start one of the next five games, John Fay from MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Reds haven't been specific about which game yet because there are other roster and/or rotation decisions the team must make first before they slot him in. Feldman has been the innings-eater that they've hoped he would be, posting a 4.34 ERA over 103.2 innings.
