Cubs' Pedro Strop: Struggles Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strop allowed three runs on two hits and a walk while retiring just two batters in the Cubs' eventual 4-3 win over the Pirates on Friday.

Strop was tasked with protecting a 3-0 lead in the eighth inning but allowed Pittsburgh to tie the game on a Starling Marte three-run homer. It's been a tough season for Strop, as the 34-year-old has missed time with a hamstring injury and is sitting with a 5.06 ERA through 21.1 innings. He's also been supplanted as the team's closer with the addition of Craig Kimbrel.

Cubs' Pedro Strop: Registers ninth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strop pitched a perfect ninth inning with two strikeouts to record the save in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Mets.

After allowing two runs and taking the loss in his last appearance, Strop enjoyed a bounce-back effort. The righty now has a 5.17 ERA and nine saves this season, though his end-game opportunities could dwindle as soon as Craig Kimbrel is deemed ready to join the MLB roster.

Cubs' Pedro Strop: Takes late loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strop (1-3) took the loss after allowing a go-ahead, two-run home run in the ninth inning of Tuesday's 3-1 defeat to the White Sox.

It was a rough ninth inning for Strop, who started the frame by allowing a single to James McCann and then the big home run to Eloy Jimenez before departing with one out. The righty's ERA climbed to 5.52 after the subpar outing, and he will get bumped down in the bullpen pecking order soon, once Craig Kimbrel is ready to join the MLB roster.

Cubs' Pedro Strop: Notches eighth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strop walked one and struck out two in a scoreless ninth inning Saturday to record his eighth save of the season in a 2-1 win over the Dodgers.

The right-hander has now converted four straight save opportunities, and Strop will continue to hold down the fort as the Cubs' closer until Craig Kimbrel is ready to join the roster -- a move that seems a week or so away from happening.

Cubs' Pedro Strop: Collects seventh save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strop got the final out of the game Sunday to pick up the save in a 5-1 victory over the Cardinals.

Called upon to protect a four-run lead after Carl Edwards Jr. walked a pair of batters in the ninth inning, Strop needed only one pitch to retire Matt Carpenter on a groundout and pick up his seventh save. Though he has pitched well as the Cubs' closer this season, converting seven of nine save chances and allowing one run or less in 14 of 15 appearances, Strop figures to move to a setup role when Craig Kimbrel is added to the roster within the next three weeks.

Cubs' Pedro Strop: Posts sixth save despite homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strop allowed a solo home run but struck out two in an inning of relief and still nailed down a save in a 3-1 victory over the Cardinals on Friday.

Working with a three-run lead, Strop had a big enough cushion to allow a solo shot and still record his sixth save. He retired the other three batters he faced, but the homer didn't help his ERA. Strop is 6-for-8 in save chances with a 4.97 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 13 strikeouts in 12.2 innings.

Cubs' Pedro Strop: Shuts door in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strop (hamstring) fired a scoreless ninth inning to record the save in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Rockies.

Strop was activated from the injured list before the game, and any thought that the Cubs would ease him back into action with low-leverage work was tossed out the window when they trotted him out for the ninth inning. The 33-year-old righty recorded 13 saves and posted a 2.26 ERA for Chicago in 2018, and it looks like he'll be the team's top endgame option for now, with Brandon Morrow (elbow) potentially factoring into the mix at some point this season.

Cubs' Pedro Strop: Activated from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strop (hamstring) was activated from the 10-day injured list Tuesday, Bruce Levine of 670TheScore.com reports.

Strop had been dealing with a strained left hamstring since early May. He recorded a poor 5.06 ERA in 10.2 innings prior to suffering the injury but should still be in line for a good number of save chances now that he's healthy, as he had four of the Cubs' six saves prior to hitting the injured list. Dillon Maples was sent to Triple-A Iowa in a corresponding move.

Cubs' Pedro Strop: Set for another rehab outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strop (hamstring) will make another rehab appearance Sunday for Triple-A Iowa, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Strop was originally expected to make just two rehab appearances but apparently requires a third outing despite pitching quite well in his first two. Regardless, he appears to be close to returning to Chicago and could do so sometime next week.

May 31, 2019 02:28 PM
Cubs' Pedro Strop: Another perfect rehab appearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strop (hamstring) pitched a 1-2-3 inning at Triple-A Iowa on Thursday, and he has now tossed two scoreless innings with a hit allowed and a strikeout across two rehab outings.

Strop has been efficient in his two outings as well, needing just 13 pitches to get through the two innings. The Cubs originally planned for the righty reliever to make two rehab appearances, so his next time pitching could come at the MLB level. Strop last pitched for the Cubs on May 6.

Cubs' Pedro Strop: Set to begin rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strop (hamstring) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Iowa on Tuesday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

It was unclear whether Strop would need a rehab assignment before returning to the Cubs. However, given his three-week absence, the team has opted for him to complete a few warmup outings. Assuming there are no setbacks in his recovery, he should be activated from the injured list after making two appearances for Iowa, one on Tuesday night and another Thursday.

Cubs' Pedro Strop: Activation not imminent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strop (hamstring) will need to throw another bullpen session early next week and manager Joe Maddon said they will know by the end of next week whether a rehab assignment will be necessary, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Reports from earlier this week suggested that Strop could be activated shortly after throwing off a mound Saturday, but it seems like that was an overly optimistic timetable. It is unclear if Strop suffered a setback. An activation next weekend now seems like the best-case scenario, but he could also require a rehab assignment, which would mean an early-June return would be in the cards.

May 23, 2019 06:08 PM
Cubs' Pedro Strop: May not need rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strop (hamstring) may not need a rehab assignment before being activated, potentially soon after Saturday's scheduled bullpen session, Bruce Levine of 670TheScore.com reports.

He has been out since May 5 with the hamstring strain, but he threw two strong bullpen sessions this week, with a final test coming Saturday. After that session, the Cubs will decide whether to send him on a rehab assignment or to activate him. Steve Cishek has been an admirable replacement as the closer, but Strop figures to get back in the ninth-inning mix upon his activation.

Cubs' Pedro Strop: Closing in on rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strop (hamstring) could begin a minor-league rehab assignment next week, Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

He threw a 25-pitch bullpen session Wednesday, which apparently went well, and will throw another such session this weekend. If that goes well, a rehab assignment could be next, meaning he could return in late May or early June if everything goes smoothly through the rest of his recovery. In the meantime, Steve Cishek has proven more than capable of handling the ninth inning for the Cubs.

Cubs' Pedro Strop: Tosses side session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strop (hamstring) threw a 25-pitch bullpen session Monday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Strop was diagnosed with a Grade 2 hamstring strain May 8, though it appears he's trending in the right direction, as he was able to throw his first bullpen session since suffering the injury. He could advance to throwing against live hitters in the near future, assuming he feels fine following Monday's side session.

Cubs' Pedro Strop: Diagnosed with Grade 2 strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strop was diagnosed with a Grade 2 left hamstring strain Wednesday, Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

The issue has apparently been bothering Strop since the end of April, though it only became too bothersome during his most recent outing against the Marlins on Monday. The veteran reliever will rest for 3-to-4 days before starting to rehab his left hamstring, which is the same one that he injured during September of last season. Fortunately, Strop doesn't believe his current injury is as serious as the one he dealt with last September, which cost him close to three weeks. While nothing is confirmed, Steve Cishek, Carl Edwards and Brad Brach appear to be the most likely options to see save chances while Strop is sidelined.

Cubs' Pedro Strop: Lands on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strop was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with a left hamstring strain, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Strop apparently suffered the injury during his most recent appearance Monday against the Marlins, during which he allowed three runs on three walks and a hit en route to blowing his second save of the season. The severity of the issue is not yet known, leaving Strop without a timetable for his return at the moment. It's worth noting that this is the same hamstring that forced him to miss time last September. With Brandon Morrow (elbow) also on the mend, look for Steve Cishek, Carl Edwards and Brad Brach all to factor into the late-inning mix for the Cubs for the time being.

Cubs' Pedro Strop: Blows second save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strop (1-2) blew the save and took the loss Monday against the Marlins. He allowed three runs on a hit and three walks without recording an out.

Simply put, it was a disastrous outing for Strop as he blew his second save in six opportunities this season. Staked to a 4-3 lead, the righty started the top of the ninth with back-to-back walks. A single loaded the bases, then another walk forced home the tying run before Strop got the hook. He threw just six of 18 pitches for strikes and saw his ERA climb to 5.06. Regular closer Brandon Morrow (elbow) is without a timetable to return to the team, but the Cubs may be forced to turn to someone like Brandon Kintzler or Steve Cishek for saves if Strop continues to struggle.

May 4, 2019 10:24 PM
Cubs' Pedro Strop: Notches fourth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strop saved his fourth game in a win over the Cardinals on Saturday, striking out two in a perfect ninth inning.

Strop has converted four saves out of his five chances, and in his last nine appearances has allowed just one run and has an 11:2 K:BB. Strop holds a 2.53 ERA and 0.75 WHIP this season.

April 24, 2019 11:20 PM
Cubs' Pedro Strop: Records third save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strop walked one while striking out one through a scoreless inning to record his third save in a 7-6 win over the Dodgers on Wednesday.

Strop immediately walked the first batter he faced but recovered to face the minimum after forcing a double play to nail down the save. The 33-year-old returned to form after blowing his last save opportunity. Strop has three saves with a 3.52 ERA through nine appearances this season.
