2016 Review: Brett Oberholtzer

Editor's Note: This is the 23rd in a series of looks at the men who suited up for the 2016 Philadelphia Phillies. Michael Mariot was the last player profiled.

The narrative was there. Brett Oberholtzer, a kid from Delaware, would come home and pitch well as part of a haul that would reinvigorate the franchise.

The left-hander acquired in the Cole Hamels Ken Giles trade had promise, arriving with a career 1.332 WHIP and a 3.72 FIP. He had solid control (2.1 walks per 9) and didn't allow home runs in Houston's bandbox.

Hitters rocked him for an 8+ ERA by the end of April. Despite a promising June, posting a 3.31 ERA that month, it wasn't enough as he was placed on waivers in August.

2016 grade: D
Will we see him again in 2017: Only if he pitches against the Phillies.

I agree with most of your grades here, but this is an F all the way. He had a golden opportunity and shot it to hell.

He came to us from a team in the Lone Star State in the Ken Giles trade, not the Hamels trade. I went to one Phillies game last year. It was the one against the Cubs in which Velasquez faced one batter and was then replaced by this guy. The Phillies were done in mainly by bad hitting in this game. Velasquez and whoever pitched for the Cubs could have thrown no-hit, shutout ball until the Phillies scored their only run of the game in the bottom of the 9th. But Oberholtzer and a parade of relievers gave up a bunch of runs to the eventual World Series winners.
