Part of the trade deadline deal that sent Michael Bourn to Atlanta in 2011, Oberholtzer went 11-20 with a 3.94 ERA in parts of three seasons in Houston. The lefty fell out of favor with management after an incident in which he was ejected from a game for intentionally throwing at Yankees DH Alex Rodriguez. Oberholtzer was sent to the minors the next day. He made only one more appearance in an Astros uniform before being traded the following off-season.
