Feldman had a second opinion on his knee inflammation, which confirmed that he will not need surgery, MLB.com's Mark Sheldon reports.

EDGE Analysis

Instead, the Reds will rely upon rest and rehab in bringing Feldman along. "At this point, it sounds as if we can go with a treatment-only approach, strengthen his quad, which will support and take some pressure off of his knee, and getting the pain under control," manager Bryan Price said.

Feldman (knee) was placed on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Feldman's sore right knee likely contributed to his horrendous outing in Monday's loss to the Nationals, as he lasted one inning before being pulled after allowing five runs on five hits (including two home runs) and a walk. Since Feldman hasn't been diagnosed with any structural damage to the knee nor any sort of strain, he might not be looking at a lengthy absence, but the Reds will need a spot starter for at least one turn through the rotation. Feldman had previously been in line to make his next start Saturday against the Marlins, so it's likely that long man Asher Wojciechowski or a starter at Triple-A Louisville will take the hill for that contest.

Feldman (7-7) lasted just one inning Monday against the Nationals, serving up five earned runs on five hits and a walk.

EDGE Analysis

Feldman was rocked from the start, as Bryce Harper and Ryan Zimmerman made it 4-0 Washington in consecutive pitches. It also took the veteran hurler 33 pitches to escape the inning, with only 18 of those going for strikes. However, this performance could have been affected by an injury, as Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports that Feldman has a sore right knee and will likely require a trip to the disabled list. It's unclear how long he'll be out if he does land on the DL, but more information should come forth when a better diagnosis is revealed. Asher Wojciehowski, who tossed five innings in relief after Feldman's exit, seems like a logical candidate to step into the rotation if the need arises.

Feldman (7-6) gave up four runs on five hits and a walk while striking out six over five innings in Wednesday's 5-3 loss to the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

As is often the case at Coors Field, the veteran right-hander paid dearly for his mistakes as all four runs scored on a pair of two-run homers, including a 467-foot shot by opposing pitcher Jon Gray. It's the first time since his first start of the season that Feldman has been tagged for multiple home runs, and so far in 2017 he's been relatively untouched by the historic league-wide power display. If his 1.1 HR/9 begins to tick up in the second half, however, he could become a very volatile fantasy option.

Feldman (7-5) allowed no runs on two hits and two walks while striking out seven across seven innings to earn the win Friday against the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

Feldman took a no-hit bid into the sixth inning, and he easily coasted to his seventh victory of the season. He's posted four strong starts over his last five outings to lower his ERA from 4.52 to 3.78, and he's become a much-improved fantasy option. He'll make his next start Wednesday against the Rockies.

Feldman (6-5) tossed seven innings of two-run ball Sunday against the Nationals. He allowed seven hits, walked five and struck out two.

EDGE Analysis

Michael Taylor's two-run home run in the fourth inning was the only blemish on Feldman's line Sunday. The Reds have now won five of Feldman's last seven starts. Feldman is 4-1 in that span has given up 17 earned runs over 40.1 innings.

Feldman allowed two runs on six hits and one walk across six innings in a no-decision MOnday against the Rays. He struck out six.

EDGE Analysis

Feldman was sharp for the most part and made one mistake in the form of a solo home run to Steven Souza, with the second run on his ledger scoring on a home run allowed by the bullpen. He pitched into the seventh inning for just the second time in his last seven outings and reached six strikeouts for the third time in that same span. The veteran has struggled to string strong starts together on a consistent basis this season, but he has flashed the ability to effectively consume innings in the middle of the rotation and will look to build on this performance Sunday against the Nationals.

Feldman (5-5) allowed four runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out six over five innings during Tuesday's 6-2 loss to the Padres.

EDGE Analysis

Feldman wasn't able to replicate the success he experienced his previous time out against the Cardinals (7 IP, 0 ER), as the Padres reached base early and often Tuesday. The veteran righty dug himself into a hole early, allowing the first four batters of the game to reach base safely en route to an early 2-0 deficit. Though he was able to mostly limit the scoring over the following four innings, the damage had been done as his pitching counterpart Clayton Richard did not allow a run until late in the ninth inning when the game was already out of reach for the Reds. Feldman will look to improve upon his performance as he faces off against the Rays on Monday.

Feldman (5-4) pitched seven scoreless innings with just four hits allowed during Thursday's win over St. Louis. He struck out four batters.

EDGE Analysis

After allowing nine runs over 9.1 total innings to the Phillies and Braves through his past two starts, Feldman rebounded nicely Thursday. He's held opponents to two runs or fewer in seven of his 13 starts but still owns a lackluster 4.09 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 6.9 K/9 for the campaign. While the game-to-game inconsistency makes Feldman a difficult hurler to peg, there clearly is upside. A road date with the Padres is up next for the veteran righty.

Feldman allowed five runs -- four earned -- on seven hits and three walks while striking out just a single batter over 4.1 innings during Saturday's loss to Atlanta. He didn't factor into the decision.

EDGE Analysis

It's been a hit-or-miss season for Feldman, as despite holding opponents to two runs or fewer in half of his 12 starts, he still sports an underwhelming 4.52 ERA and 1.37 WHIP. His 7.1 K/9 and 4.57 FIP aren't encouraging numbers, either. Additionally, considering he's allowed nine runs over 9.1 total innings to the Phillies and Braves through his past two starts, being selective with his matchups might not be a viable approach, either. Feldman lines up to face the Cardinals at home in his next start.
