      Padres' Matt Strahm: Shaky in no-decision

      Matt Strahm didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 8-7 win over the Brewers, allowing four runs on five hits and a walk over five innings while striking out two.The southpaw didn't have his best stuff, managing only six swinging strikes among his 82 pitches (55 total strikes) and getting taken deep by Ryan Braun and Christian Yelich. Strahm will carry a 4.85 ERA and 62:16 K:BB through 68.2 innings into his next start Tuesday in Baltimore.

      Padres' Matt Strahm: Struggles in return to rotation

      Matt Strahm (2-6) took the loss against the Rockies on Thursday, pitching 3.1 innings and giving up six runs on seven hits and four walks while striking out four.Strahm missed only one start after being diagnosed with a rib strain and was tasked with the difficult assignment of pitching in Colorado upon his return. Though Strahm gave up a homer to Trevor Story and Charlie Blackmon, his control was as much to blame for the poor outing as the altitude; he threw only 11 of 21 first pitches for strikes and set a career high by walking four batters. Strahm has followed a strong 10-strikeout appearance against the Yankees on May 27 with a pair of duds in which he has allowed 13 earned runs in 7.2 innings to raise his season ERA from 3.21 to 4.66. He'll try to turn things around when he faces the Brewers on Tuesday in his next scheduled start.

      Padres' Matt Strahm: Short stay anticipated

      Matt Strahm is not expected to spend much longer than the minimum 10 days on the injured list with his rib strain, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.It appears as though Strahm's trip to the injured list is a matter of workload management as much as anything else. He could wind up missing just one start and re-enter the rotation at some point near the end of next week.

      Padres' Matt Strahm: Sent to injured list

      Matt Strahm landed on the 10-day injured list with a left rib strain Wednesday.The injury perhaps explains Strahm's poor showing Sunday against the Marlins, when he gave up seven runs in 4.1 innings. The severity of the injury is not yet clear, but the San Diego Padres likely want to manage Strahm's innings after he logged just 75.2 frames last season. Therefore, the team's bar for what is bad enough to send him to the injured list is probably quite low. Wednesday's starter Cal Quantrill was recalled in a corresponding move.

      Padres' Matt Strahm: Struggles in loss

      Matt Strahm (2-5) was charged with the loss against the Marlins on Sunday after surrendering seven runs on seven hits and no walks while striking out five through 4.1 innings of work.It was a disappointing setback for Strahm, who had fired 10 strikeouts against Yankees in last outing. Unfortunately, the 27-year-old couldn't find the same stride against the Marlins as he ended his streak of seven straight quality starts. Of his seven hits allowed at Petco Park, two came from home runs: one as a two-run homer Jorge Alfaro in the second inning, and the other as a solo shot to Garrett Cooper in the third. Of course, a 28-minute bee delay in the third inning didn't help, nor did the lack of offensive support from his teammates. On the bright side, the left-hander didn't walk anyone and punched out five. He'll carry a 4.03 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 56:11 K:BB into his next start against the the Nationals on Saturday.

      Padres' Matt Strahm: Fans 10 in defeat

      Matt Strahm (2-4) took the loss against the Yankees on Monday, giving up three earned runs on four hits over six innings, striking out 10 and walking three in the San Diego Padres' 5-2 defeat.Strahm gave up all three of his earned runs in the second inning, but he rebounded for a quality start that also marked his first double-digit strikeout effort of the season. He didn't get the win in this contest, but Strahm has been pitching very well as he hasn't given up more than three earned in any of his starts since he was tagged for five runs by the Diamondbacks on April 1. The strong run leaves him with a 3.21 ERA, a 1.13 WHIP and a 51:11 K:BB through 56 innings.

      Padres' Matt Strahm: Earns second win

      Matt Strahm (2-3) completed six innings Tuesday, giving up two runs on four hits to earn the win over Arizona. He struck out two and did not walk a batter.As promised by manager Andy Green last week, Strahm's pitch count was monitored closely -- he was removed after throwing only 69 pitches. Still, he was efficient enough to earn his second victory of the season, limiting the scoring to only a pair of solo home runs. Despite the ho-hum record, Strahm has pitched well in his first full season as a starter, compiling a 3.06 ERA and 1.12 WHIP in his nine outings. He'll have a tough road game Monday against the Yankees in his next scheduled start.

      Padres' Matt Strahm: Pitch count will be monitored

      Manager Andy Green said Thursday that Matt Strahm's pitch counts will be monitored throughout the season, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports. "We're going to take care of him all season long, like we do Chris [Paddack]," Green said of Strahm. "We're going to still try to limit the number of pitches he throws on a daily basis and still try and have an opportunity to win every game."Though Paddack and Strahm have shined out of the rotation this season, the San Diego Padres remain mindful of not overworking the two pitchers after both covered less than 100 innings in 2018. Strahm's restrictions were a byproduct of pitching almost exclusively out of the bullpen last season, so he may be subjected to a shorter leash during his starts even when he's cruising. Strahm has eclipsed the 90-pitch mark in just one of his eight starts and should continue to receive at least five days off between turns. He lines up for his next outing Tuesday against the Diamondbacks at home.
