Scott Feldman, Chicago Cubs -- The predictable Feldman regression is in full swing. In his last four starts, he has surrendered 14 earned runs in 24.1 innings, allowed 21 hits and issued five free passes in that stretch. Feldman pitched way over his head through May, and while he'll be one of the most discussed pitchers leading up to the trade deadline, that has to do with his durability and affordability more than anything. He's still definitely worth owning in most mixed leagues, but he is by no means matchup-proof.
