BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2016 Oberholtzer might be the only player of value to shake out of the package Houston got for Michael Bourne, though if he does work out, he'll do so in Philadelphia, where he landed in the Ken Giles trade. Oberholtzer is a lefty who doesn't throw hard, has limited stuff and gets hit often, but he doesn't walk all that many. He's kind of boring, to be honest, but boring can be okay. His crowning achievement for 2015 was throwing at Alex Rodriguez, only to have his boss publicly apologize for his actions and demote him to Triple-A after the game. The pitch missed.

Blister problems along with a pretty full rotation in Houston kept Oberholtzer either on the DL or in the minors in 2015, which is for the best; he is an ideal sixth or seventh starter, the fire extinguisher that may or may not have been checked lately. He'll probably be operative if and when the Phillies need to pull the pin.

2015 One argument against putting snakes in a teammate's locker is that they might get revenge by not scoring runs or catching line drives in the games you're pitching. Granted, there's no proof Oberholtzer did this to teammates, but how else but snakes in lockers do you explain his ERA coming in .83 points higher than his FIP, or the fact that he had the lowest run support (minimum 140 IP) in the American League? Luck, perhaps? Maybe left-handed hitters just got the ball in play more often? Pft. Pitchers create their own luck, by not orchestrating snake-in-the-locker pranks on fellow humans. He's a young pitcher with exceptional command who can still lean on a nice 2013 debut. But he'll have to learn.
2014 Oberholtzer was a pleasant surprise in a year with precious few. He yo-yo’d back and forth between Oklahoma City and Houston before eventually ending up in the Astros' rotation, where he performed respectably. He doesn't light up the radar gun (his fastball tops out at 92 and he typically works at 90) and his breaking ball (curve or slider, depending on the grip and velocity) remains a work in progress, but the changeup is a plus pitch that can baffle righties when it’s on. Oberholtzer also features excellent command and control, and fills up the zone with quality strikes.
2013 Brett Oberholtzer is still young, but since coming over from Atlanta he's discovered that a lot more fly balls leave the park in the Southern and Pacific Coast Leagues. If he keeps throwing strikes, he could become a fifth starter.
2012 Oberholtzer came from Atlanta in the Michael Bourn deal, and could be mistaken for Joe Blanton viewed in a mirror. Oberholtzer is about major-league ready and he could potentially break camp in the rotation with a good spring. His fastball is often cited as a “plus” pitch, but that's a case of “pitchability” instead of raw velocity, as he usually works right around the 90-mph mark. His slider is also good, and his changeup is what makes the whole sequence work. Unlike Blanton's, his curve is just a “show me” pitch for now, though a little improvement in it would give him a good secondary offering on days when the slider isn't biting.
2011 Southpaw Brett Oberholtzer doesn't walk anybody, but he doesn't exactly miss a lot of bats, either.

DateQuestionAnswer
2011-08-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Did the Astros trade Hunter for Pence on the pound sterling? Feel free to use that one. What one? (Simpsons reference)
(Tbirds from Seattle)
Joke and Simpsons reference aside, the Astros got a very nice return on Pence. Kevin Goldstein had both Jarred Cosart and Jonathan Singleton among his top five prospects traded at the deadline, with Josh Zied among his potential sleepers. By comparison, the Astros got only one of the top 10 prospects dealt in the Michael Bourn deal (Brett Oberholtzer) plus one sleeper (Paul Clemens) AND they had to take on Jordan Schafer, who is the most obvious Astro in the history of obviousness.
