Astros Oberholtzer to get back on mound!

By Christina De Nicola / Special to MLB.com | 10:10 AM ET

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- Left-hander Brett Oberholtzer, the projected fourth starter in the Astros rotation, will throw a bullpen session on Friday.

Oberholtzer likely sustained a mild strain of his left lat last week while making a pickoff attempt at second base. The injury forced him to be scratched from his appearance in a Minor League game last Sunday.

"We'll assess after that what the next game plan is," manager A.J. Hinch said. "We're excited to get him back on the mound. He's been throwing. Nothing's delayed his throwing, just his throwing off the mound has been the adjustment that we've made. Once we get him off the hill tomorrow, we'll [have] a more definitive game plan."

The 25-year-old southpaw has been able to follow his daily routine except throwing off a mound. In two Spring Training starts, Oberholtzer has given up three runs -- two earned -- on eight hits over five innings with four strikeouts and a walk for a 3.60 ERA.

Hinch doesn't expect any limitations on the type of pitches or how many Oberholtzer will throw.

"We'll see," Hinch said. "Time will have to tell a little bit on how much he can handle. He should be able to throw a regular bullpen."
