  • Blue Jays' Ross Stripling: Rehab outing set

    Stripling (hip) will make a rehab start with Triple-A Buffalo on Friday and is expected to throw about five innings, Arden Zwelling of reports.

    It was originally reported the veteran right-hander would make the rehab start Wednesday, but the outing was instead pushed back a couple days. If all goes well Friday with Buffalo, Stripling could return from the injured list for Toronto sometime next week.

  • Blue Jays' Ross Stripling: Slated for rehab start

    Stripling (hip) will make a rehab start at Triple-A Buffalo on Wednesday, Joe Trezza of reports.

    Stripling has been sidelined since Aug. 3 due to a right glute/hip strain, but he threw off a mound Monday and has been cleared to return to game action in the minors Friday. Since he hasn't missed much time, it's possible that the right-hander will be cleared to return from the injured list after just one rehab start.

  • Blue Jays' Ross Stripling: Tosses bullpen session

    Stripling (hip) threw a bullpen session Monday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of reports.

    Stripling landed on the injured list last week, but he is already back up on the bump. His next step will either be a live bullpen session or perhaps a rehab outing.

  • Blue Jays' Ross Stripling: Shut down with glute strain

    The Blue Jays will place Stripling on the 15-day injured list Wednesday due to a right glute/hip strain, Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic reports.

    According to interim manager John Schneider, the Blue Jays view Stripling's injury as a short-term concern, so he could be ready to go by the time he's first eligible to come off the IL in mid-August. Stripling's upcoming absence immediately validates the Blue Jays' decision to address their starting-pitching depth ahead of Tuesday's trade deadline, as new acquisition Mitch White now looks like the leading candidate to fill the opening in the rotation.

  • Blue Jays' Ross Stripling: Can't get out of fifth inning

    Stripling did not factor in the decision against Detroit on Saturday, allowing two runs on five hits while striking out five batters over 4.1 innings.

    Stripling breezed through four scoreless frames before running into trouble in the fifth. He allowed the first three batters in the inning to reach base, then gave up a sacrifice fly before being pulled for Adam Cimber. Cimber allowed one more run to score but otherwise contained the damage to preserve Stripling's four-game streak of allowing two or fewer runs. Stripling has pitched pretty effectively for Toronto, but he's exceeded five innings only once in his past six starts.

  • Blue Jays' Ross Stripling: Allows two runs

    Stripling did not factor into the decision against the Red Sox on Sunday, allowing two runs on five hits while striking out one and walking one over four innings.

    Stripling threw 38 of 62 pitches for strikes, allowing Jarren Duran and Franchy Cordero to cross the plate before he was pulled. Stripling has gone beyond five innings three times in 14 games as a starter this season and was limited to four frames against Boston. He also tallied just one strikeout in the game, his lowest total since a one-out, zero-strikeout save May 28. The righty should continue to see starting opportunities with multiple pitchers on the IL for Toronto and will take a 3.10 ERA into his next appearance.

  • Blue Jays' Ross Stripling: Effective against Phillies

    Stripling (5-3) earned the win Wednesday after he tossed seven innings, surrendering two runs (zero earned) on two hits while striking out six against the Phillies.

    Stripling pitched six scoreless innings before giving up a two run homer to Bryson Stott in the top of the seventh inning. Both runs were unearned though because Rhys Hoskins reached on a throwing error to open the frame. It was the first time in six starts that he did not walk a batter and he now has three quality starts this season. Since joining the starting rotation June 6, the right-hander has produced a 2.13 ERA and 0.92 WHIP with 32 strikeouts over 42.1 innings in eight starts.

  • Blue Jays' Ross Stripling: Solid against Mariners

    Stripling allowed two runs on seven hits and a walk with six strikeouts in five innings in a no-decision versus the Mariners on Friday.

    Stripling wasn't able to pitch past the fifth inning for the third straight start, but he provided solid work with 61 of his 94 pitches going for strikes. The veteran right-hander has given up 11 runs (10 earned) in 24.1 innings across his last five appearances. For the season, he owns a 3.34 ERA, 1.16 WHIP And 55:14 K:BB across 67.1 innings in 20 outings (12 starts). Stripling is lined up for a favorable home start versus the Royals next week. His place in the rotation should be secure with Yusei Kikuchi (neck) on the injured list at least through the All-Star break.

  • 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.
