The Astros have been injury-free for the most part of the 2015, at least they've missed the big injuries -- until now. MLB.com's Brain McTaggart is reporting the Astros veteran right-hander Scott Feldman will be out for the remainder of the 2015 season with a sprained right shoulder.

Feldman will begin a rehab protocol that will extend through the offseason. The goal is for him to be ready to pitch in 2016.— Brian McTaggart ⚾️ (@brianmctaggart) September 11, 2015
Feldman was 5-5 with a 3.90 ERA in 18 starts in 2015. Since returning from disabled list in July, Feldman was one of the Astros best starters with a 1-1 record with a 2.79 ERA in eight starts.
He left his last start early shoulder pain on Sept. 1 against Seattle, pitching only 2 2/3 innings. He had a setback in his rehab program this past week as he still felt pain throwing the ball.
The 32-year-old is in his second of a three-year contract with the Astros.
