April 24, 2018
Oberholtzer signed a minor-league contract with the Rockies on Tuesday, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports.
ANALYSIS
The southpaw has a fair amount of big-league experience, but he hasn't found all that much success at the highest level. Oberholtzer has a 4.36 ERA and 1.40 WHIP in 324 career innings. He most recently spent time with the Blue Jays' Triple-A affiliate as a starter, and it seems like he'll fill a similar organizational depth role with Colorado.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2016
2015
2014
2013
After making 24 starts for the Astros in 2014, Oberholtzer got off to a rocky start last spring, as he dealt with back soreness and a blister on his pitching finger that forced a DL stint to open 2015. He made his season debut with the Astros in May, but lasted just three innings in his first start and immediately returned to the DL due to the blister. The southpaw returned a month later, but his performance wasn't up to par and he was subsequently optioned to Triple-A Fresno. Oberholtzer went 2-2 with a 4.46 ERA, 1.59 WHIP and 27:17 K:BB over 38.1 innings (eight starts) for the Astros last season. While he pitched much better in the minors, he's a long shot to open 2016 in the Astros' starting rotation.
Oberholtzer opened the year as the No. 3 starter in Houston's rotation, but went 0-6 with a 5.68 ERA before he was subsequently demoted to the minors. For the next month and a half, he flip-flopped back and forth between Triple-A and Houston, filling in when injuries to other starters warranted it, but didn't stick with the team until after the All-Star break. In 24 starts, the second-year southpaw went 5-13 with a 4.39 ERA, but he pitched a lot better than his record indicates. A 3.62 FIP suggests Oberholtzer was a bit unlucky, and despite a poor 5.9 K/9, he kept his walks down (1.8 BB/9) and did a fairly good job keeping the ball inside the park (0.8 HR/9). With solid ratios, he's once again a favorite to break camp as a starter for the Astros.
Oberholtzer, a 24-year-old southpaw, opened eyes within the Astros' organization after a successful audition in the starting rotation following the team's trade of Bud Norris. In his first major league start, Oberholzter pitched seven scoreless innings in a win over the Orioles, permitting only three hits (no walks) while striking out six. He went on to record six additional quality starts en route to a 2.76 ERA and 1.10 WHIP overall. His 45:13 K:BB ratio over 71.2 innings was solid enough to give Oberholtzer a likely spot in the Astros' Opening Day rotation.
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.
