Scott Oberg chats with Ryan HolidayPosted: February 28, 2022
Scott Oberg is a pitcher with the Colorado Rockies who hasn’t actually pitched since 2019, though he is still listed on the Rockies’ 40-man roster. Oberg’s Major League career is currently in limbo, due to a battle with blood clots in his pitching arm.
In August 2021, Oberg sat down and had a conversation with Ryan Holiday of the Daily Stoic. In the podcast, Oberg discusses his struggles with the injury, how he’s maintaining a positive mindset, and how he is trying to continue to contribute to the Rockies organization through his time on the injured list.
