Rockies' Scott Oberg: May not pitch this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oberg (back) was transferred to the 45-day injured list Sunday due to blood clots in his right arm.

The 30-year-old was nearing his return from a back injury when he began feeling discomfort in his right hand and had trouble gripping the ball, and further evaluations revealed his blood clot issues have resurfaced. Oberg missed the final six weeks of 2019 due to the issue , and it's now the third time the problem has surfaced over the past few years. He'll be sidelined for the near future and may not pitch in 2020.

Rockies' Scott Oberg: Hand issue surfaces
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oberg (back) had a simulated game cut short Saturday after feeling discomfort in his right hand, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.

The specifics of the injury remain unclear, but the 30-year-old was having difficulty maintaining his grip on the ball. Oberg appeared to be nearing his return from the lower-back strain that sent him to the injured list, but he's now heading for evaluations on his hand.

Rockies' Scott Oberg: Tosses live batting practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oberg (back) felt good after throwing a live batting practice session Thursday, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

Oberg hadn't been able to throw while dealing with back soreness, but he took the mound Thursday and felt good afterward. The right-hander said that he also felt as though he recovered well Friday and plans to throw another live batting practice soon. A timetable for his return could become clearer after his next throwing session, but Oberg appears to be on the right track.

Rockies' Scott Oberg: Hasn't been able to throw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oberg (back) is unlikely to be activated when first eligible July 31, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

His back soreness has so far prevented him from throwing a bullpen session at the satellite camp. He will try to throw a bullpen session Monday and could return sometime in early-to-mid August.

Rockies' Scott Oberg: Formally moved to IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rockies placed Oberg on the 10-day injured list Thursday with a lower-back strain.

The move is retroactive to Monday, making Oberg eligbile to return from the IL as soon as July 30. Oberg is scheduled to resume throwing off a mound within a few days, so the Rockies should have a better idea regarding his return timeline based on how he looks in the side session.

Rockies' Scott Oberg: Heading to injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oberg (back) will begin the regular season on the injured list, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

The veteran right-hander has been dealing with a bout of back stiffness throughout summer training, and the issue will send him to the shelf for the start of the season. Oberg played catch Wednesday and is scheduled to throw off a mound within a couple days, but he has no official timeline for his return.

July 22, 2020 04:40 PM
Rockies' Scott Oberg: Won't pitch Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oberg (back) will not pitch in Tuesday's exhibition game against the Rangers, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

Oberg was initially scheduled to get some work in Tuesday, but the back stiffness that he's dealt with throughout summer camp will prevent him from taking the mound for the Rockies' first exhibition game. The staff will reassess Wednesday to determine whether he's ready to pitch in the team's final tuneup before the regular season.

Rockies' Scott Oberg: Might not be ready for Opening Day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oberg (back) might not be ready for Opening Day, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.

Oberg has been dealing with back soreness that has limited his workload during camp, and manager Bud Black cast some doubt Sunday on the right-hander's availability to begin the regular season. Oberg is scheduled to pitch in Sunday's intrasquad game and in Tuesday's exhibition to test the injury, and he should have a clearer idea of his status following those appearances. When he's healthy, Oberg will serve as the top setup man in Colorado's bullpen.

Rockies' Scott Oberg: Nursing back stiffness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rockies manager Bud Black said Thursday that Oberg has been dealing with some back stiffness since arriving in Denver for summer camp, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.

As a result, the Rockies have been taking things slowly with Oberg in workouts, but the reliever has been able to throw regular bullpen sessions. He's on track to be ready for the Rockies' season opener July 24, when he'll likely work as the top setup man to closer Wade Davis.

Rockies' Scott Oberg: Shows no rust in spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oberg struck out three batters across 2.2 scoreless innings before spring training was suspended. He allowed three hits and issued zero walks.

Oberg, whose 2019 season was cut short due to a blood clot in his right arm, showed no rust in his return to action, though the sample size was small. Once play resumes, the right-hander is expected to work as one of Colorado's primary setup men. Closer Wade Davis will likely have a short leash after his struggles in 2019, however, so Oberg profiles as one of the better handcuff options for saves.

Rockies' Scott Oberg: Ready for spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oberg (arm) is scheduled to make his spring debut in relief Sunday during the Rockies' Cactus League game against the Angels, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

Oberg ended the 2019 season on the 60-day injured list due to a blood clot in his right arm, but the right-hander received full medical clearance over the winter. Though Oberg looks like he's healthy again and will be available to begin the 2020 campaign, his fantasy stock tumbled over the winter after manager Bud Black appointed Wade Davis as the team's closer. Oberg was the far more effective of the two pitchers in 2019 and scooped up five saves during his brief run as the Rockies' closer, but Davis' exorbitant contract looks like it'll be enough to give him another crack at the ninth-inning job. Davis will likely have a short leash if he struggles early on this season, however, so Oberg profiles as one of the better handcuff options for saves.

Rockies' Scott Oberg: Serving as primary setup man
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oberg (arm) will serve as the primary setup man to closer Wade Davis according to manager Bud Black on Tuesday, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.

Oberg had an excellent season in 2019 before missing action down the stretch with blood clots in his right arm, recording a 2.25 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 58 strikeouts across 56 innings. Rockies general manager Jeff Bridich fully expects the 29-year-old to be healthy and ready for spring training. Oberg and Davis will look to lead a Rockies' bullpen that finished with a 5.14 ERA last season, the third highest mark in all of baseball, and defy low expectations associated with pitching in the league's most hitter-friendly ballpark that is Coors Field.

Rockies' Scott Oberg: Extends with Colorado
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oberg (arm) signed a three-year, $13 million extension with the Rockies on Wednesday that includes an $8 million club option for 2023, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

Oberg missed most of the second half of last season with blood clots in his right arm, but he recorded a career-best 2.25 ERA with a 1.11 WHIP over 56 innings prior to the injury. The right-hander expressed confidence that he will be fully ready for spring training, and the extension should allow him to potentially compete for the closer's job in 2020.

Rockies' Scott Oberg: Confident blood clots won't return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oberg (arm) is confident the blood clots in his right arm won't return, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

Oberg has been ruled out for the remainder of the season due to axillary artery thrombosis, but he received good news during his visit with a specialist and is confident he'll be back to full health by the time spring training rolls around next year.

Rockies' Scott Oberg: To visit specialist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Obert (arm) is scheduled to see a specialist in St. Louis sometime during the week, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.

Oberg has already been ruled out for the remainder of the season due to axillary artery thrombosis, and considering this is the second time he's dealt with this issue over the last few years, he'll see a specialist to determine the root of the problem.

Rockies' Scott Oberg: Moves to 60-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oberg (blood clot) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Monday.

This move frees up a spot on Colorado's 40-man roster for Wes Parsons, who was claimed off waivers Monday. Oberg has already been ruled out for the remainder of the season with a blood clot in his right arm, leaving Wade Davis to step back in as the team's closer.

August 18, 2019 02:00 PM
Rockies' Scott Oberg: Out for remainder of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oberg (blood clot) will not return this season, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

He was placed on the 10-day injured list with axillary artery thrombosis -- something he dealt with at the end of the 2016 season as well. Wade Davis, who has been excellent on the road (0.63 ERA) and awful at home (9.70 ERA), has been tabbed the closer.

August 18, 2019 01:28 PM
Rockies' Scott Oberg: To IL with blood clot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oberg was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday with a blood clot in his right arm.

The official diagnosis is axillary artery thrombosis. This is the second time Oberg has dealt with this issue -- he also dealt with it in late 2016. It is unclear how long Oberg will be sidelined with the condition. He had been working as the Rockies' closer, but now some combination of Carlos Estevez, Wade Davis and Jake McGee figure to share the closing duties in the short term.

Rockies' Scott Oberg: Records fifth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oberg earned the save against the Marlins on Friday with a scoreless ninth inning that included one hit and one strikeout.

Oberg struck out Isan Diaz before giving up a single to Brian Anderson. Luckily, the threat was quickly neutralized after the right-hander forced back-to-back groundouts from Neil Walker and Starlin Castro. Oberg now has five saves this season and has pitched well since taking over the closer role in early August. Through 49 appearances, he owns a sturdy 2.25 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 58:23 K:BB.

August 14, 2019 09:00 PM
Rockies' Scott Oberg: Records sixth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oberg (6-1) earned the win after allowing one run on one hit and one walk with one strikeout during the ninth inning of Wednesday's 7-6 victory against the Diamondbacks.

Oberg was in line for the loss after entering for the top of the ninth inning and giving up a run in a tie game, but Nolan Arenado's two-run homer in the bottom of the frame flipped the decision in his favor. The 29-year-old has a 2.29 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 57:23 K:BB across 55 innings this season and should continue working as the Rockies' newly-anointed closer.
