Astros scratch Dallas Keuchel as Saturday's starter vs. Tigers; LH Brett Oberholtzer gets nod

After Friday’s game, the Astros announced that Saturday’s pitcher Dallas Keuchel, who at 8-5 was going to be the best starter they would use in this series, has been scratched because of left wrist inflammation.

Left-hander Brett Oberholtzer (2-6, 4.76) will start instead.

Without Keuchel, the series will be deprived of a marquee matchup as right-hander Max Scherzer (9-3, 3.71) goes for the Tigers.
