KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) - Scott Feldman was brought in this offseason to lead the rotation and be a veteran presence for the Houston's young pitching staff.
That doesn't mean the 31-year-old is finishing learning himself. He's just as excited as the youngsters to work with pitching greats like Roger Clemens and Nolan Ryan.
He says: ''I think that no matter how old you are you still see stuff and can learn every day.''
He's the ace of what is certain to be a new-look rotation after four players who made starts for Houston last year are gone.
Feldman, who is the first player since the Astros began their rebuilding process to get a big contract after signing a three-year, $30 million deal, loves the enthusiasm of this young team.
