MLB News: The Houston Astros have optioned Dallas Keuchel to Triple-A Oklahoma City while also recalling Brett Oberholtzer to take his place on the active roster. Keuchel just got done going 2 2/3 innings in relief the other night throwing 74 pitches. The move to bring Oberholtzer up, another LHP, is likely to just to get a fresh arm in the bullpen. Brett hadn’t done well in the minors this season going 0-2 with an ERA above 9. But who knows, maybe he can take advantage of his opportunity. More than likely though, Keuchel will be back with the team shortly.
Fantasy Ramifications: There is no fantasy relevance at this time for Keuchel or Oberholtzer.
