  • Braves' Spencer Strider: Not great versus Mets

    Strider (6-4) allowed four runs on six hits and two walks while striking out five over 2.2 innings, taking the loss Sunday versus the Mets. It was announced Strider won't face an innings limit this season, his first as a big-league starter. What could see him lose his spot in the rotation is poor performance, as he's had a couple of poor outings in going 2-2 across his last four starts. In that span, he's allowed 11 runs across 19.1 frames, though he's also posted a 28:6 K:BB. After Sunday's dud, he owns a 3.11 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 138:34 K:BB through 89.2 innings in 24 appearances (13 starts). The 23-year-old right-hander will look to bounce back next weekend in a projected road start in Miami.

  • Braves' Spencer Strider: No innings limit

    Strider does not have an innings cap this season, and Atlanta has no immediate plans to shift him back to the bullpen despite the addition of Jake Odorizzi at the trade deadline, Maria Torres and David O'Brien of The Athletic report. Strider has been spectacular as a rookie this season, posting a 3.02 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 96:21 K:BB through only 62.2 innings since moving into the rotation in late May. The 23-year-old righty tossed 96.1 innings across all levels in 2021 and is quickly approaching that figure this season, causing concerns about his workload, but as yet he isn't showing any signs of fatigue and Atlanta has no intention of removing him from the rotation until it seems necessary. Odorizzi does give the club some insurance in case Strider or another young pitcher falters down the stretch, but for now the veteran hurler will work as a sixth starter and swing man.

  • Braves' Spencer Strider: Fans 13 in blowout win

    Strider (6-3) earned the victory in Tuesday's 13-1 win over Philadelphia, striking out 13 in 6.2 innings while allowing a run on three hits and a walk. Outside of consecutive hits in the second inning that led to Philadelphia's only run, Strider absolutely dominated. At one point he retired 13 batters in a row, nine by strikeout. It was the fourth time he's reached double-digit strikeouts in a game and the first time he's punched out as many as 13. With 133 strikeouts in 87 innings and only five homers allowed, he's putting together one of the best rookie seasons in baseball this year.

  • Braves' Spencer Strider: Coughs up five runs

    Strider (4-3) allowed five runs on four hits and two walks over four innings Sunday, striking out four and taking a loss against Washington. Most of the damage against Strider came during an ugly four-run second inning; he yielded a two-run single to Ehire Adrianza and a two-run homer to Victor Robles in the frame. It was Strider's second straight start of fewer than five innings after tossing six innings in each of his previous three outings. The 23-year-old is now sporting a 3.03 ERA with a 114:30 K:BB through 21 appearances (10 starts).

  • Braves' Spencer Strider: Pulled after 4.2 innings

    Strider allowed a run on five hits, three walks and a hit batsman while striking out eight in 4.2 innings in a 4-1 win Tuesday over the Mets. He did not factor into the decision. Strider held the Mets scoreless through the first four innings but ran into trouble in the fifth. With two outs, he gave up a run-scoring triple to Francisco Lindor and issued an intentional walk to Pete Alonso before being removed, having thrown 103 pitches. Over his last four starts including Tuesday, the 23-year-old has fanned 38 batters in 23.1 innings and allowed just two runs on 13 hits.

  • Braves' Spencer Strider: Dominates Reds for fourth win

    Strider (4-2) earned the win Saturday, allowing one run on one hit and one walk over six innings against the Reds. He struck out 11. Strider's rookie breakout continued with his second double-digit strikeout game of the season and arguably his best overall performance to date in the big leagues. He induced a whopping 24 swinging strikes on 93 pitches, and Cincinnati was only able to scratch a run across after a hit-by-pitch, a wild pitch and a single. Strider had a recent bump in the road against San Francisco (six earned runs in 3.2 innings), but he's flashing frontline starter potential.

  • Braves' Spencer Strider: Bounces back Sunday

    Strider pitched six shutout innings Sunday versus the Dodgers, allowing five hits while striking out seven and walking none in a no-decision. Strider was tagged for six runs by the Giants in his last start, but he bounced back with an excellent performance against one of the National League's top teams. The rookie right-hander submitted his longest start of the year, throwing 64 of 95 pitches for strikes while keeping runs off the board for the second time in six starts since he joined the rotation. He owns a 3.02 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 79:22 K:BB through 53.2 innings overall. Strider is expected to make his next start on the road in Cincinnati next weekend.

  • Braves' Spencer Strider: Gives up six runs

    Strider gave up six earned runs on six hits and a walk while striking out four over 3.2 innings in a 12-10 loss to the Giants in Tuesday. He did not factor into the decision. Strider struggled against a veteran Giants team that chased him before he could even complete four frames. He had previously been effective for the Braves since being moved to the rotation last month, and he came in to face the Giants fresh off of an 11-strikeout performance against the Nationals on Thursday. Strider has electric stuff, including a fastball which averages 98 mph, but it remains to be seen if what is primarily a two-pitch repertoire (fastball-slider) will play effectively in a rotation role over the long term. He will look to bounce back in his next start, which tentatively lines up for Sunday at home against the Dodgers.

  • Braves' Spencer Strider: Sleeper pitchers for Week 12 (June 20-26)

    The matchups (Giants and Dodgers) couldn't get much worse, but Strider's stuff is so good that I'm of the impression he can only beat himself. If these two starts go as well as his last two, this will be the last chance to call him a sleeper anything.

  • Braves' Spencer Strider: Career-best start

    Strider (3-2) gave up two earned runs on one hit and two walks while striking out a career-high 11 batters Wednesday against the Nationals. He picked up the win. This was Strider's best start of his career, as he tied his career high with 5.2 innings and blew past his previous career high of eight strikeouts. He topped out at 100.9 mph and average 98.8 mph with his fastball, which had a 33 percent whiff rate in this outing. His slider registered a 48 percent whiff rate, and he threw his changeup just four times out of 106 total pitches. Strider has a 1.76 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 24:8 K:BB in 15.1 innings over his last three starts. He may get a pair of starts next week against the Giants and Dodgers, both of which would come at home.

  • Braves' Spencer Strider: Possible waiver wire pickups

    Yes, the hype is real. Spencer Strider's fourth start was his most impressive yet. He was so precise with his fastball that the Nationals had no choice but to swing at it, often hilariously, which goes to show how effective of a pitch it is. It sits at 100 mph. It spins like crazy, making for a pronounced "rising" effect. He pairs it with a slider that drops out of existence. The end result was 11 strikeouts on 24 swinging strikes over 5 2/3 one-hit innings, and I suspect this is my last chance to write about him as a potential waiver claim. The guy is crazy talented and should be rostered everywhere.

  • Braves' Spencer Strider: Sleeper pitchers for Week 11 (June 13-19)

    Spencer Strider had the misfortune of bad defense in his first start and Coors Field in his second, but things went better in his third start over the weekend. You'll want to put his bat-missing arsenal to work against the Nationals' bottom-10 offense in his fourth start.

  • Braves' Spencer Strider: Fans eight in victory

    Strider (2-2) allowed four hits and a walk over 5.2 scoreless innings Friday, striking out eight and earning a win over the Pirates. Strider gave up just four singles while turning in his first shutout appearance as a starter. His eight punchouts tied a season high from his May 6 outing against the Brewers. The 23-year-old touched triple-digits with his fastball while forcing 18 whiffs. Strider now owns a 2.35 ERA with a 57:19 K:BB through 38.1 frames. He's lined up to start in Washington next week.

  • Sleeper pitchers for Week 10 (June 6-12)

    His first turn as a starter was marred by shaky defense and his second by a bunch of walks, but he's shown the same bat-missing potential that he did as a reliever. He should find the Pirates lineup more to his liking.

  • Braves' Spencer Strider: Submits four solid innings

    Strider didn't factor into the decision during Saturday's 6-2 victory over Colorado, allowing one run on two hits and five walks with five strikeouts in four innings. Making his second start, Strider rebounded from a poor performance to permit just one run despite loading the bases in both the third and fourth innings. It's been a mixed transition to the rotation for the 23-year-old who's allowed six runs and seven walks across his two starts after opening the year as a surprisingly shutdown reliever. The positive has been Strider's pitch count of 72 and 87 pitches in his last two games after averaging 37 pitches per appearance in his first 11 games.

  • Braves' Spencer Strider: Getting second start Saturday

    Strider is listed as Atlanta's starting pitcher for Saturday's game in Colorado. Though Strider failed to escape the fifth inning and allowed five runs -- one shy of the total he surrendered in his first 11 relief appearances -- in his first MLB start Monday in Arizona, the hard-throwing rookie had some positive takeaways from the outing. He retired 11 of the 19 batters he faced via strikeout or groundout, and Mark Bowman of MLB.com notes that defensive misplays by Marcell Ozuna and Adam Duvall that didn't go down in the scorebook as errors contributed to Strider's ERA ballooning from 2.22 to 3.45. A trip to Coors Field isn't ideal for Strider as he attempts to whittle down his ERA, but he still looks like Atlanta's best option for the No. 5 starter role with the team having already cycled through a number of other pitchers at the back end of the rotation, to little success.

  • Braves' Spencer Strider: Takes loss in first career start

    Strider (1-2) was tagged with the loss against Arizona on Monday, allowing five runs on four hits and two walks over 4.1 innings. He struck out seven. There was lots of hype about Strider's move into a starting role after he tallied a 2.22 ERA and 13.7 K/9 across 11 appearances as a reliever to begin the season, but the transition didn't go as smoothly, at least initially, as Atlanta hoped. The right-hander gave up three runs in the first inning and two more in the fifth before he was lifted for a reliever after 72 pitches. On a more positive note, Strider racked up 14 swinging strikes and seven punchouts, showcasing his ability to fool batters when he's at his best. Should he stick in the rotation, Strider will face a challenge in his next start, which is scheduled to take place in Colorado this weekend.

  • Braves' Spencer Strider: Set for first career MLB start

    Strider is listed as Atlanta's scheduled starting pitcher for Monday's game in Arizona, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. The rookie right-hander has been a standout in the Atlanta bullpen this season with a 2.22 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 37:11 K:BB across 24.1 innings, but he'll finally get a look in the rotation as the team attempts to put an end to its revolving door at the No. 5 starter spot. With Tucker Davidson being banished to Triple-A Gwinnett after issuing four walks in each of his past two starts, Strider will get the chance to bring stability at the back end of the Atlanta rotation. Since he hasn't covered more than four innings or 71 pitches in any of his extended relief outings this season, Strider might not be stretched out enough to handle a traditional starting role Monday, but he should be capable of offering fantasy managers strong ratios even if he faces a restricted workload. The 23-year-old looks like a strong speculative pickup in shallower leagues where he's still available.

  • Braves' Spencer Strider: Notches first career hold

    Strider struck out the side in a perfect seventh inning Wednesday to record his first hold of the season in an extra-innings loss to the Brewers. The rookie looked comfortable in his new setup role, but the rest of the Atlanta bullpen wasn't able to get the job done. Strider has a dominant 40 percent strikeout rate through 20.2 innings this season with a 2.61 ERA and 1.02 WHIP, and while he's no threat to Kenley Jansen in the closer spot, he should be able to collect holds quickly with more high-leverage usage.

  • Braves' Spencer Strider: Moving into higher-leverage role

    Atlanta manager Brian Snitker suggested after Monday's 1-0 loss at Milwaukee that Strider will likely handle more higher-leverage work late in games in the wake of Tyler Matzek's (shoulder) impending move to the 15-day injured list, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports. "When you lose a guy of [Matzek's] caliber, we may need Strider to fill those late-inning leverage innings," Snitker said. When Atlanta optioned Bryce Elder and Kyle Muller to Triple-A Gwinnett on May 1, Strider looked like a potential candidate to step into the final opening in the rotation, but the big club will instead promote Tucker Davidson from Gwinnett to give him another look as the No. 5 starter beginning with Tuesday's game against the Brewers. After working a career-high four innings in a bulk-relief role May 6, Strider would have been reasonably stretched out enough for starting duty, but Atlanta apparently believes he'll provide more value out of the bullpen as a high-leverage, multi-inning arm late in games. Look for Atlanta to stay away from Strider on Tuesday, however, as he tossed two scoreless innings in a 26-pitch relief appearance Monday.
