Feldman (knee) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Sunday, Zach Buchanan of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
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 on his right knee Tuesday.
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.
Feldman was placed back on the 10-day DL with right knee inflammation following Thursday's start against the Cubs.
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 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."
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.
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.
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 next.
Feldman (knee) was activated from the 10-day disabled list and confirmed as the starting pitcher for Saturday's game against the Brewers.
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.
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 in his rehab, 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.
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.
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.
Feldman (knee) pitched a simulated game Wednesday without any setbacks and is likely to skip a rehab assignment, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Feldman will instead takes some pitcher fielding practice over the weekend, and if all goes well he could be back ahead of schedule. Manager Bryan Price said that Feldman hasn't lost arm strength since going on the DL.
Feldman (knee) tossed a 25-pitch bullpen session Saturday, Zach Buchanan of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Feldman's bullpen session was described as "low intensity," but the veteran pitcher is expected to throw a more aggressive session in the coming days. Feldman's arm is reportedly in good shape at the moment, and the Reds are hoping that the 34-year-old won't require a rehab assignment. He remains without a firm return date but appears to be progressing well.
Feldman (knee) kicked off a throwing program Tuesday and could progress to a bullpen session in the coming days, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.
Feldman landed on the 10-day disabled list July 18, but looks to have avoided a significant setback after he was diagnosed with right knee inflammation rather than any structural damage following a second opinion. It's uncertain whether or not Feldman will require a rehab assignment, so even if he resumes mound work by the end of the weekend, he's not a safe bet to return from the DL next week. Robert Stephenson has made the last two turns in the rotation for Feldman and would likely start again August 2 against the Pirates if Feldman isn't deemed ready to go by then.
Feldman had a second opinion on his knee inflammation, which confirmed that he will not need surgery, MLB.com's Mark Sheldon reports.
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.
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.
Feldman was rocked from the start, as Bryce Harper and Ryan Zimmerman made it 4-0 on 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 Wojciechowski, 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.
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.
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.
Michael Taylor's two-run home run in the fourth inning was the primary blemish on Feldman's line Sunday. The Reds have now won five of Feldman's last seven starts. The right-hander is 4-1 in that span has given up 17 earned runs over 40.1 innings (3.79 ERA).
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.
Feldman was sharp for the most part, making one mistake in the form of a solo home run to Steven Souza; the second run on his ledger scored on a homer 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.
