Outside of a 3.8 WAR 2009 season with the Texas Rangers, Scott Feldman had the best years of his career with the Astros.

Feldman was hit hard by the injury bug after a 1.9 WAR 180.1 IP 2014 season. He only pitched 108.1 innings in 2015, but was still worth 1.4 WAR.

Feldman is entering a walk year at not-quite-full health, but McCullers and now Doug Fister provide a lot of workload flexibility. Fister’s progression could also cut into Feldman’s playing time, but Feldman will have plenty of opportunities if he can stay healthy.
