2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

The 23-year-old Oberholtzer posted passable stats at Double and Triple-A with a 4.39 ERA and 1.36 WHIP across the two levels. His command was much better in 2012 than it was in 2011, lowering his walk rate and improving his K/BB. There is still more work to be done on his game, but with a strong start in Triple-A next year, he could push for a callup in 2013 as part of the Astros' rebuilding rotation.
