Snakebit Oberg Looks To Recover From Setback, Climb Back To Majors

Jul 30, 2015 05:11AM ● Published by Bill Gilman

Scott Oberg was demoted to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Scott Oberg learned a rough lesson earlier this month -- getting to the Major Leagues is one thing. Staying in the Majors is quite another.
After a few rough outings in a weekend series against the Arizona Diamondbacks, the Colorado Rockies demoted the former Tewksbury High and UConn star back to Triple-A Albuquerque to try and regain the form that made him a mainstay of the Rockies' bullpen earlier in the season.
On June 26, Oberg was 2-1 with a 4.60 ERA. But that was before he got rocked for four earned runs on three hits and two walks in just a third of an inning against Arizona on July 2. the next day, he walked two more and gave up a hit in an inning of work against those same Diamondbacks.
Oh July 5, the final game of the four-game series at Arizona, the Diamondbacks may have sealed Oberg's fate when they touched up the 25-year-old righty for two runs on three hits in another third-of-an-inning stint.
Oberg's final outing before being demoted was stronger. He retired both batters he faced on July 9 at home against Atlanta.
Since being sent back to Albuquerque, Oberg has steadied himself. In five games, Oberg has allowed just one run (1.29 ERA) and walked only two, while striking out six.
