Rockies' Scott Oberg: Strikes out side Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oberg struck out the side in a perfect eighth inning in Colorado's 12-8 defeat to the Dodgers on Thursday.

Oberg continues to be a standout performer in Colorado's bullpen, as the right-hander now has a 2.04 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 43:16 K:BB over 39.2 innings. He's been outperforming Wade Davis, who now has a 6.00 ERA after coughing up four earned in Thursday's loss. Oberg did well filling in for Davis as closer while he was on the injured list with an oblique injury earlier this season, picking up three saves, so if Davis' struggles persist and threaten his job security, Oberg would almost certainly be first in line to take over the role.

Rockies' Scott Oberg: Throws scoreless eighth inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oberg allowed two hits and struck out two batters in a scoreless eighth inning Thursday against the Padres.

Oberg picked up three saves while Wade Davis was out with an oblique injury, but he's firmly back in a setup role now. Oberg owns an excellent 1.78 ERA in 30.1 innings this season, though his underlying numbers don't suggest he's been particularly elite. It's taken a .211 BABIP and an 85.6 percent strand rate to get him to that low ERA, and neither his 23.3 percent strikeout rate nor his 11.7 percent walk rate is particularly strong.

Rockies' Scott Oberg: Bags third save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oberg picked up the save against the Cubs on Thursday, firing a scoreless ninth inning without allowing a baserunner to close out a 3-1 victory for the Rockies. He struck out one.

Oberg has been performing well in place of injured closer Wade Davis (oblique), as this was his third straight successfully converted opportunity since he took over the role. Davis is reportedly nearing a return, so Oberg's days as the primary ninth-inning option are numbered, but he's established himself as the top choice to take over should Davis sustain another injury or run into any struggles that threaten his job security. For the season, Oberg is sporting a 1.65 ERA and a 1.02 WHIP over 27.1 innings.

Rockies' Scott Oberg: Picks up one-out save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oberg retired the only batter he faced Saturday to record his second save of the season in a 4-2 win over the Blue Jays.

The Rockies held a four-run lead heading into the ninth inning, but after Carlos Estevez stumbled, Oberg entered the game with the tying run at the plate and got Rowdy Tellez to ground out. Wade Davis (oblique) made it through a bullpen session Friday without any issues, so Oberg's window for saves could be closing quickly.

Rockies' Scott Oberg: Notches first save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oberg earned the save Wednesday against the Diamondbacks, tossing a scoreless frame with two strikeouts and a walk at Coors Field.

With two outs, Oberg issued a free pass to Ildemaro Vargas, but shut the door by striking out Eduardo Escobar for the final out of the game. The 29-year-old has been solid primarily in middle relief for the Rockies, but was called upon for the save opportunity with Wade Davis nursing a minor oblique strain on the injured list. Oberg has posted a 1.80 ERA and 1.12 WHIP through 22 appearances.

Rockies' Scott Oberg: Collects win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oberg (2-0) pitched a scoreless ninth inning with two strikeouts to record the win as the Rockies earned an 8-6 walkoff victory over the Orioles on Friday.

His first appearance in six days was a successful one, and Oberg can thank Trevor Story for providing the winning home run. The right-hander has a 1.69 ERA and 1.13 WHIP through 19 appearances and 21.1 innings this season, and is currently in line for saves with regular closer Wade Davis (oblique) out.

May 22, 2019 05:24 PM
Rockies' Scott Oberg: Primary closer while Davis is out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oberg will be the Rockies' primary closer while Wade Davis (oblique) is on the injured list, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.

This wouldn't have been a surprise before the season, but it is somewhat surprising given how Oberg has pitched of late. He has only allowed two runs over his last 12 appearances (11.2 innings), but he has six walks and just three strikeouts over that stretch. Generating weak contact has been Oberg's top skill in the big leagues, but his 47.4 percent groundball rate is easily the worst mark of his career and the first time that number has been below 50 percent. Davis' oblique strain is not considered severe, so he should return sometime in June.

Rockies' Scott Oberg: Settles to avoid arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oberg signed a one-year, $1.3 million contract with the Rockies on Thursday, avoiding arbitration, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

Oberg was one of the Rockies' top relievers in 2018, compiling a 2.45 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 57:12 K:BB in 58.2 innings of relief. Look for the right-hander to reprise his setup role in 2019.

Rockies' Scott Oberg: Reinstated from paternity list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oberg was activated from paternity leave prior to Friday's game against the Braves, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

Oberg will rejoin the active roster after missing the past couple games due to the birth of his child. Across 35 appearances this season, Oberg has logged a 3.12 ERA and 1.24 WHIP. In a corresponding move, Harrison Musgrave was optioned to the minors.

August 14, 2018 04:00 PM
Rockies' Scott Oberg: Placed on paternity leave
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oberg was placed on the paternity list Tuesday, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

Oberg will miss between one and three games while on the paternity list, so he'll be back with the Rockies for Friday's game against the Braves at the latest. Garrett Hampson was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque to take Oberg's place on the roster.

Rockies' Scott Oberg: Scoops up win in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oberg picked up the win in relief Friday in the Rockies' 11-10 triumph over the Diamondbacks. He retired two of the three batters he faced and notched a strikeout.

Oberg allowed an inherited runner to score on a two-out double by A.J. Pollock in the bottom of the sixth before inducing an inning-ending popout. The reliever then watched the Rockies offense rally for six runs in the top of the seventh to turn an 8-5 deficit into an 11-8 edge, allowing Oberg to raise his record to 5-0. While the five wins to go with a 2.89 ERA and 1.11 WHIP has kept Oberg's fantasy value higher than most other middle relievers this season, the randomness of those victories along with a poor 7.1 K/9 rate don't make him an especially appealing pickup, even in NL-only formats.

Rockies' Scott Oberg: Comes off disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oberg (back) was activated from the disabled list Wednesday, Nick Groke of The Athletic Denver reports.

Oberg landed on the disabled list earlier this month, and he is ready to rejoin the big club after making two rehab appearances. Oberg has split his time between the majors and Triple-A this season and has an option remaining, so he will have to throw well to hold down his spot.

June 22, 2018 05:36 PM
Rockies' Scott Oberg: Set for rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oberg (back) is slated to start a rehab assignment with Triple-A Albuquerque on Saturday, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.

Oberg has been on the shelf since June 10 with a back strain but appears to be closing in on a return to the Rockies' bullpen. Over 16 appearances this year, he's posted a 4.08 ERA and 1.25 WHIP.

June 10, 2018 02:20 PM
Rockies' Scott Oberg: Lands on DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oberg was placed on the 10-day disabled list Sunday with a back strain, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

Oberg last pitched Thursday, tossing a scoreless inning of relief against the Reds. It's currently unclear if he'll be sidelined for longer than the required 10 days, but reliever Jerry Vasto has had his contract selected from Triple-A Albuquerque to fill the void in the bullpen in the meantime.

May 28, 2018 06:24 PM
Rockies' Scott Oberg: Rejoins big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oberg was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque on Monday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

Oberg will take the roster spot of Adam Ottavino (oblique), who was sent to the disabled list in a corresponding roster move. The 28-year-old owns a solid 1.88 ERA and 0.98 WHIP across 14.1 innings with the Isotopes this season, but his 6.55 ERA across 11 frames with the Rockies will likely limit him to low-leverage work out of the bullpen during his time in Colorado.

April 24, 2018 04:56 PM
Rockies' Scott Oberg: Headed to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oberg was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on Tuesday.

Oberg's 2018 season hasn't gone too well to this point. The righty has appeared in 10 games (11 innings), allowing eight runs on five walks and 12 hits in that time. In a corresponding move, the Rockies selected Brooks Pounders' contract from Triple-A Albuquerque.

April 5, 2018 05:12 PM
Rockies' Scott Oberg: Command issues continue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oberg was tagged with a blown save Tuesday against the Padres after allowing a run on one hit and hitting a batter.

The right-hander was vying for a bullpen spot out of spring training, and he managed to grab the spot thanks in part to the injuries to Carlos Estevez (oblique) and Jeff Hoffman (shoulder). Two of Oberg's outs this season have come via the strikeout, but the walk and hit batsman are less than ideal given his past control issues. As a result, he'll likely be limited to low-leverage situations for Colorado for now.

March 22, 2018 03:28 PM
Rockies' Scott Oberg: Good shot at MLB bullpen role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oberg allowed four runs on seven hits in seven spring innings so far.

The right-hander doesn't have the sexiest stat line this spring, but it seems like he could start the season in the majors since Carlos Estevez (oblique) won't be ready for Opening Day. The 28-year-old Oberg finished last season strongly by producing a 2.03 ERA in the month of September, but his career 5.05 ERA and home park of Coors Field limit any upside.

October 4, 2017 03:43 AM
Rockies' Scott Oberg: Ends regular season on strong note
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oberg finished the regular season with a 4.94 ERA and a 1.61 WHIP in 58.1 innings pitched.

He spent some time at Triple-A during the summer, but the right-hander wound up being one of the most heavily used relievers in September. He responded well, producing a 2.03 ERA while striking out nearly a batter per inning in 14 appearances. Oberg finally showed some swing-and-miss in his game this season to go with his extreme groundball tendencies.

August 18, 2017 04:57 PM
Rockies' Scott Oberg: Recalled from Albuquerque
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oberg was called up from Triple-A Albuquerque on Friday.

Oberg has appeared in 49 games for Colorado thus far in 2017, posting a 5.91 ERA and 1.76 WHIP over 42.2 innings out of the bullpen. He will likely be deployed in low-leverage situations, as he's been pretty inconsistent while on the mound, posting 40 strikeouts but giving up 18 bases on balls this year.
