Straily's ERA ballooned to 7.27 after his fifth start of the season, and he has failed to toss a quality start in any of his outings since he debuted with 6 2/3 strong innings. He struck out 11 batters in that first start, but has fanned just 10 in his three most recent starts, with 11 walks.
Straily still seems to have a ton of upside, but he has not been able to figure out the majors through his first 12 starts. If it weren't for the fact that I have him for $1 in a keeper league, I would have already dropped him. In yearly formats that are not restricted to AL-only player pools, Straily should be jettisoned immediately.
The loss dropped Straily to 1-2 and gave him 10 earned runs in 9 1/3 innings over his last two starts, pushing his ERA up to 7.27 through 26 innings this season. If he takes his regular turn in the rotation, he'll face the Rangers again next week, this time in Arlington.
Straily ran into trouble early, as he gave up two runs in the first inning, but the big blow came in the third. Facing Raul Ibanez, who was making just his second start in 14 games, Straily gave up a three-run home run that blew the game open.
Straily allowed six runs in five innings of work, with six hits and four walks allowed. He also struck out four batters, as he lost his first decision of the year. Straily is 1-1 with a 7.06 ERA in four starts. He has allowed three home runs in 21 2/3 innings, while striking out 25 and walking eight.
Straily is set to make his next start Wednesday against the Rangers.
Straily put a couple runners on base in the sixth inning and his bullpen allowed them all to score. He started the inning with a 4-1 lead and it ended with the score tied at four.
The young starter allowed three earned runs on four hits and three walks over 5 1/3 innings. He struck out four and threw 85 pitches, 60 for strikes. His ERA is now at 5.94 after his third start for the A's.
Straily (1-0) has made two solid starts and had one hiccup in his last outing against the Angels. He gave up six runs over 4 2/3 in that start. He's given up five over 12 innings in his other two outings with 21 Ks over his first 16 2/3 innings on the year.
Straily will make his next scheduled start Friday in Seattle.
