  • Blue Jays' Ross Stripling: Hit with third loss

    Stripling (4-3) allowed four runs (three earned) on seven hits and a walk over 4.2 innings Sunday, striking out three and taking a loss against the Rays.

    Stripling held the Rays to just one unearned run through four innings before a brutal fifth frame. He allowed an RBI single to Yandy Diaz before Harold Ramirez took him deep for a two-run shot. Stripling had allowed just five runs in five starts since re-joining Toronto's rotation in June. His season ERA jumped to 3.32 alongside a 49:13 K:BB through 19 appearances. Stripling is projected to take the mound in Seattle next week.

  • Blue Jays' Ross Stripling: Solid outing in no-decision

    Stripling struck out three in five innings Tuesday while allowing two runs on five hits and a walk. He did not factor into the decision in the 6-5 win against Boston.

    Stripling allowed a solo homer to Trevor Story in the second and consecutive hits to begin the fifth, leading to the other run. He was removed after five innings after having tossed 81 pitches rather than face the heart of Boston's lineup for the third time. It was another good start for the 32-year-old following his to the rotation, as he's compiled a 1.75 ERA and 17:4 K:BB in 25.2 innings over five starts in June.

  • Blue Jays' Ross Stripling: Allows one run in win

    Stripling (4-2) earned the win Wednesday against the White Sox after giving up one run on five hits with five strikeouts and one walk over six innings.

    The 32-year-old covered only 3.2 innings during his previous outing, but he rebounded Wednesday and produced his second quality start of the season. Stripling has a 3.08 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 43:11 K:BB across 52.2 innings this season, and his spot in Toronto's starting rotation is secure for the foreseeable future since Hyun Jin Ryu (elbow) recently underwent Tommy John surgery.

  • Blue Jays' Ross Stripling: Early exit against Yankees

    Stripling (3-2) took the loss Friday, giving up two runs on five hits and two walks over 3.2 innings as the Blue Jays fell 12-3 to the Yankees. He struck out three.

    The right-hander needed 84 pitches (58 strikes) to record only 11 outs before getting the hook, as New York's hitters fouled off a massive 27 pitches to help force Stripling from the game. Once he was off the mound, the floodgates opened against the Toronto bullpen. Eight of Stripling's 16 appearances this season have come as a starter, and he's posted a sharp 3.03 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 27:4 K:BB through 35.2 innings in that role.

  • Blue Jays' Ross Stripling: Stellar in win

    Stripling (3-1) earned the victory Sunday in Detroit, striking out four in six scoreless innings while allowing one hit.

    Striping faced the minimum in his six innings, inducing two double-play groundballs that erased the two baserunners (one reaching on an error) he allowed. It was his second straight start where he allowed one hit and no runs while pitching at least five innings. Stripling has split time between the rotation and the bullpen but is attempting to cement his spot as a starter with a 2.81 ERA, 0.84 WHIP and 24:2 K:BB in that role. His next start will likely come next week against the Yankees.

  • Blue Jays' Ross Stripling: Fires five scoreless innings

    Stripling (2-1) allowed one hit over five shutout frames Monday, striking out two and earning a win over the Royals.

    The Blue Jays combined to throw a two-hit shutout and it began with five strong innings from Stripling. The only hit he gave up was Michael Taylor's single in the third. In six starts this season, the 32-year-old is 1-1 with a 3.46 ERA and a 20:2 K:BB. Stripling is currently projected to start in Detroit this weekend.

  • Blue Jays' Ross Stripling: May replace injured Ryu in rotation

    Stripling is the most likely candidate to move into the Toronto rotation if Hyun Jin Ryu (forearm) requires a stint on the injured list, Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic reports.

    Ryu lasted just four innings in his start Wednesday against the White Sox before departing with left forearm tightness. Stripling came on in long relief behind him and tossed 2.2 scoreless innings, so he would be lined up to fill in for Ryu if a replacement is needed when the Blue Jays next require a fifth starter Monday in Kansas City. For the time being, a decision hasn't been made on whether Ryu will need to go on the IL, as the Blue Jays will first evaluate the results of the MRI he underwent earlier Thursday. Stripling previously made five starts for Toronto earlier this season, logging a 4.29 ERA and striking out 18 over 21 innings in those outings.

  • Blue Jays' Ross Stripling: Notches one-out save

    Stripling retired the lone batter he faced on three pitches en route to notching his first save of the season in Saturday's 6-5 win over the Angels.

    With regular closer Jordan Romano allowing a run to score and loading the bases before exiting with two outs, the Blue Jays turned to Stripling to put out the fire. The veteran right-hander was able to get the job done, as he coaxed a groundball from Andrew Velazquez to seal the Jays' one-run win and claim his fourth career save. The one-out cameo marked Stripling's first high-leverage appearance in the bullpen since he exited the rotation earlier this month following Hyun Jin Ryu's return from the injured list.

  • Blue Jays' Ross Stripling: Stuck with first loss Saturday

    Stripling (0-1) took the loss in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Guardians, giving up four runs on five hits and a walk over four innings. He struck out three.

    Three of the five hits off Stripling went for extra bases, including a third-inning solo shot by Franmil Reyes. The right-hander has lasted five innings only once in five starts since moving into the rotation, posting a 4.29 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 18:2 K:BB through 21 frames over that stretch. The results haven't been terrible, but with Hyun Jin Ryu (forearm) tossing four innings for Triple-A Buffalo to begin his rehab assignment Saturday, Stripling could be headed back to the bullpen in the near future.

  • Blue Jays' Ross Stripling: Short outing in no-decision

    Stripling didn't factor into the decision in Monday's 3-2 loss to the Yankees, giving up two runs on five hits over four innings. He struck out three without walking a batter.

    The right-hander made only one real mistake, but Gleyber Torres launched it into the seats in the fourth inning for a two-run shot. Stripling tossed 63 pitches (47 strikes) before exiting, and he's now failed to last more than four innings in three of four starts since moving into the rotation, putting a firm ceiling on his fantasy utility. His 3.79 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 15:4 K:BB through 19 innings on the season are solid ratios, but with Hyun Jin Ryu (forearm) set to begin a rehab assignment this coming weekend, Stripling is likely a couple weeks away from returning to the bullpen.

  • Blue Jays' Ross Stripling: Strikes out seven in loss

    Stripling didn't factor into the decision during Wednesday's 7-1 loss to the Red Sox, giving up one run on five hits over five innings. He struck out seven and didn't record a walk.

    After giving up an RBI double to Rafael Devers in the top of the first inning, Stripling settled down and pitched four scoreless innings. He got into trouble in the third, allowing three singles to load the bases, but he got out of the jam by registering back-to-back strikeouts of Devers and J.D. Martinez. After coming out of the bullpen during his first two appearances, Stripling has started three consecutive contests and logged his most innings and pitches (84) of the season during Wednesday's outing. His next start is tentatively scheduled for Monday against the Yankees.

  • Blue Jays' Ross Stripling: No-decision in Houston

    Stripling didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 4-3 win over the Astros, giving up three runs on five hits and a walk over four innings. He struck out two.

    All the damage came in the third inning, and it might have been worse had Santiago Espinal not made a great defensive play to snag a bases-loaded line drive by Yordan Alvarez. Stripling got the hook after 61 pitches (42 strikes) and thus still hasn't lasted longer than four innings since moving into the rotation, limiting his fantasy appeal. On the season, the right-hander has a 4.50 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 5:4 K:BB through 10 innings.

  • Blue Jays' Ross Stripling: Should remain in rotation

    Stripling is expected to remain in Toronto's starting rotation after Hyun Jin Ryu (forearm) was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Stripling made his first start of the season Friday versus the A's as a sixth starter for the Blue Jays, but he could now have a more regular role after Ryu suffered his injury Saturday. Stripling was limited to 62 pitches against Oakland but pitched well with four scoreless innings, allowing two hits with four strikeouts and zero walks. The right-hander tentatively lines up to start at Houston this Friday.

  • Blue Jays' Ross Stripling: Looks good in first start

    Stripling didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 4-1 win over the A's, scattering two hits over four scoreless innings. He struck out three without walking a batter.

    Making his first start of the season, Striping didn't allow a runner to get past second base but got the hook after 62 pitches (40 strikes) and didn't last long enough to qualify for a win. The Blue Jays plan to employ a sixth starter on a semi-regular basis all season, but there's no guarantee Stripling will get the call every time as Nate Pearson (illness), Thomas Hatch and others could also be in the mix.

  • Blue Jays' Ross Stripling: Confirmed to start Friday

    Stripling is listed as the Blue Jays' starting pitcher for Friday's game against the Athletics, Rob Longley of the Toronto Sun reports.

    Toronto will likely make Stripling available out of the bullpen in an emergency Thursday against the Yankees, but assuming he goes unused, he'll step into the rotation for what is expected to be only one start. The Blue Jays have all members of their five-man rotation healthy, but Stripling will be added to the mix temporarily to give each of the other starters an extra day of rest during a busy schedule of games to open the season.

  • Blue Jays' Ross Stripling: Could start Friday

    The Blue Jays are planning to have Stripling make a spot start Friday against the Athletics in Toronto if he isn't needed in relief the next two days, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Stripling looks like he'll be in line for just a short-term appointment in the rotation, as the Blue Jays are looking to extend each of their five starters an extra day of rest between outings amid a busy stretch in the schedule. The right-hander last appeared out of the bullpen Sunday, when he was charged with two runs allowed on one hit and three walks over one inning in a 24-pitch outing against the Rangers. Stripling could be capped at around 40-to-50 pitches if he does in fact receive the starting assignment for Friday's series opener.

  • Blue Jays' Ross Stripling: Opening year in bullpen

    Stripling will not be part of the Blue Jays' Opening Day starting rotation, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.

    Stripling seemed likely to be the odd man out after the team signed Yusei Kikuchi in mid-March. He's been a starter in 21 of his 29 appearances for the Blue Jays since joining the team in the middle of the 2020 season, and he should add a handful more starts this season. Stripling is likely the next man up whenever one of Toronto's starting five suffers an injury, though the nod could also go to Nate Pearson depending on the young righty's health and development.

  • Blue Jays' Ross Stripling: Inks one-year deal

    Stripling agreed to a one-year, $3.79 million contract with the Blue Jays on Monday, avoiding arbitration, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.

    Stripling will set his sights on earning a spot in Toronto's starting rotation after getting his new deal sorted out. He's coming off a 2021 campaign in which 19 of his 24 appearances were starts, though he'll likely open the year in the bullpen unless someone ahead of him gets injured or Toronto opts for a six-man rotation.

  • Blue Jays' Ross Stripling: Working as starter this spring

    Stripling will be treated as a starting pitcher this spring, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    The Blue Jays' starting rotation gained an additional back-end starter when the team signed Yusei Kikuchi on Saturday, which could leave Stripling as an odd man out once the regular season begins. However, the right-hander will be stretched out as a starter during spring training. Regardless of whether Stripling has a spot in the starting rotation to begin the 2022 campaign, he should be available as one of the team's top options for spot starts.
