Colorado Rockies pitcher Scott Oberg.
After being sent down to Triple-A Albuquerque following a mid-season slump, Tewksbury native Scott Oberg has regained his form and was recalled by the Colorado Rockies earlier this month.
The 6-2, 215-pound righty has appeared in six games since being recalled. After a shaky start, in which he allowed 2 earned runs, including a home run, in 2.1 innings of work, he has come on strong with four scoreless appearances. Over his las four games, Oberg has just one hit and two walks, while striking out three over 3.1 innings.
Along the way, he picked up his third career victory in the Rockies' 5-4 win over Washington on Aug. 7.
For the season, Oberg is 3-2 with 8 holds and 1 save and a 5.54 ERA. He has appeared in 40 games for the Rockies, allowing 41 hits, including 9 homers. He has struck out 25 and walked 15 over 37.1 innings.
As a team, the Rockies are in last place in the National League West with a 47-66 record. They are 16 games behind the first-place Dodgers.
