Stripling (lower leg) is sore after being hit by a comebacker Saturday but should be available for the playoffs, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.
The veteran right-hander was diagnosed with a right shin contusion after being hit by a comebacker Saturday, and it appears he's dealing with a minor issue. Stripling has a 6.32 ERA, 1.60 WHIP and 13:7 K:BB over 15.2 innings since being acquired by the Blue Jays, so he isn't guaranteed to be included on the postseason roster, even if fully healthy.
Stripling was removed from Saturday's game against the Orioles with an apparent right lower leg injury, Rob Longley of the Toronto Sun reports.
The veteran right-hander was hit by a comebacker in the right shin, forcing him to leave the contest after 16 pitches. Stripling allowed two runs on three hits while recording two outs before exiting the game. He's unlikely to be available for Sunday's season finale, but his availability for the playoffs should come into focus as he continues to be evaluated. According to Hazel Mae of Sportsnet, he was diagnosed with a right lateral shin contusion.
Stripling was credited with his first save of the season in Wednesday's 14-1 win over the Yankees after tossing four shutout innings in long relief. He gave up one hit and no walks while striking out three.
Stripling started in his previous appearance Sept. 18 in Philadelphia, but Toronto moved him back to the bullpen after Matt Shoemaker recently returned from the injured list and rejoined the rotation. On Wednesday, Stripling essentially piggybacked one of the Blue Jays' other trade-deadline pickups, Robbie Ray, who worked four innings before turning the game over to the bullpen. Stripling isn't a lock to be included on the Jays' postseason roster, but his stellar outing against the Yankees certainly bolstered his case for earning a multi-inning relief role.
Striping didn't factor into the decision in the second game of Friday's doubleheader against the Phillies, giving up three runs on four hits and three walks over 3.1 innings. He struck out four.
It was another erratic performance from the right-hander, who threw 36 of 65 pitches for strikes before exiting. Stripling has a 7.36 ERA, 1.91 WHIP and 10:7 K:BB over 11 innings since coming over from the Dodgers, and if he pitches again this season it could come in long relief rather than as a starter.
Stripling will start one of the games in Friday's doubleheader against the Phillies, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Stripling has surrendered six runs over 7.2 frames since being acquiring by the Blue Jays, and he'll receive another opportunity during Friday's doubleheader. Robbie Ray will start the other contest, though it's unclear who will start which game.
Stripling (3-3) was the pitcher of record in Wednesday's 7-2 loss to the Yankees, tossing 3.1 innings and giving up three runs on four hits and two walks while striking out two.
Stripling has been dealt losses in both of his first two appearances with Toronto, as he previously served up three runs over 4.1 innings while filling a traditional starting role in his team debut Sept. 4 versus the Red Sox. Manager Charlie Montoyo treated Wednesday's contest as a piggyback outing, as Stripling essentially split the innings with starter Tanner Roark, who was pulled after four frames (68 pitches). With the Blue Jays set to play six games in five days next week, Stripling could re-enter the rotation, but the poor form he's shown this season likely means he'll be bound for the bullpen once Montoyo is able to reduce his starting staff to five men. Over 41.1 innings between the Dodgers and Blue Jays, Stripling has posted a 5.88 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and a 7.2 K/9 while giving up 12 home runs.
Stripling (3-2) took the loss in the second game of Friday's doubleheader against the Red Sox, giving up three runs on six hits and two walks over 4.1 innings. He struck out four.
The right-hander did manage to keep the ball in the yard in his Blue Jays debut, which counts as progress after he served up multiple long balls in each of his last four appearances as a Dodger, but otherwise it was another erratic performance for Stripling. It's not yet clear if he'll remain in the rotation for Toronto, or if another trade deadline acquisition, Robbie Ray, will get a turn instead.
Stripling is listed as the probable starter for Game 2 of Friday's doubleheader against the Red Sox.
The 30-year-old was acquired by the Blue Jays from the Dodgers on Monday, and he'll make his debut with his new team during the twin bill. Stripling has struggled with a 5.61 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 27:11 K:BB through 33.2 innings this season, and he'll look to take advantage of the fresh start with Toronto.
Stripling was sent from the Dodgers to the Blue Jays in exchange for a pair of players to be named later Monday.
After several seasons stuck as a swingman in Los Angeles, Stripling should have a good shot to start on a full-time basis for his new team. He'll be the third starter acquired by Toronto at the deadline, joining Taijuan Walker and Robbie Ray. Stripling's 5.61 ERA through seven starts this season is rather unimpressive, but he'd recorded an ERA below 4.00 in each of his first four seasons in the league. If he can recapture his previous form, he'll be a very useful piece for the Blue Jays, who currently hold onto the eighth and final playoff spot in the American League.
Stripling allowed three earned runs on four hits and three walks while striking out three across four innings Saturday against the Rangers. He did not factor into the decision.
Stripling was given a three-run lead but couldn't pitch deep enough into the game to qualify for a victory. He gave up back-to-back home runs to start the third inning and was ultimately pulled after allowing the first two batters he faced to reach base in the fifth inning. Stripling has failed to work at least five innings in each of his last four starts, during which he's allowed 13 earned runs across 15.2 frames. He is currently projected to make his next start Friday against Colorado.
Stripling allowed two runs on two walks and six hits over four innings Sunday, striking out two in the win over Colorado. He did not factor in the decision.
Both runs that Stripling allowed came via solo homers -- one in the third inning by Trevor Story and a fourth-inning shot by Ryan McMahon. The righty has allowed 10 home runs in 29.2 innings this season, including seven in his last three outings. He'll carry a 5.46 ERA into Saturday's road contest against the Rangers.
Stripling gave up seven runs (six earned) on eight hits and struck out two in three innings versus the Mariners on Monday. He did not factor in the decision.
Stripling was spotted a four-run lead after two innings, but he gave it all back after allowing three homers in the third. The 30-year-old has struggled to pitch deep into games his last two times out, lasting just 7.2 innings combined in that span. The right-hander has a 5.61 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 22 strikeouts in 25.2 innings this season. Stripling is expected to make his next start Sunday versus the Rockies.
Stripling (3-1) took the loss against San Diego on Tuesday, pitching 4.2 innings and allowing six runs (two earned) on six hits and two walks while striking out four.
Only two of the runs charged to Stripling were earned, though he played a part in his own demise with a third-inning throwing error that allowed a run to score and contributed to a five-run frame for San Diego. Four of those runs came on a grand slam by Manny Machado, and Stripling served up another long ball -- to Jurickson Profar -- in the fifth inning. The outing was the shortest of the campaign for Stripling, who saw his three-start win streak end with the loss. He'll try to get back on track when he heads down the road to face the Angels on Sunday in his next scheduled start.
Stripling (3-0) earned the win in Wednesday's contest over the Padres. He gave up four runs on six hits -- including a home run -- and two walks while fanning seven across 5.2 innings.
Stripling began the season tossing seven innings on one-run ball against the Giants on July 24, but he has given up seven runs on 10 hits and four walks combined in 11 innings over his last two starts, both on the road. Stripling's next scheduled start is set for Aug. 11 at home against the Padres.
Stripling (2-0) picked up the win against the Diamondbacks on Thursday, allowing three runs on four hits and a pair of walks while striking out two across 5.1 innings.
Stripling held the Diamondbacks scoreless until Ketel Marte broke through with a solo home run in the third inning. Overall, it wasn't the cleanest outing, but Stripling still managed to get the job done while his teammates provided ample run support. He'll look to stay undefeated during his next scheduled start Wednesday at San Diego.
Stripling (1-0) picked up the win Friday after holding the Giants to one run on four hits while striking out seven across seven innings.
Stripling did not issue any walks and gave up his only damage of the night on a solo home run to Jaylin Davis in the third inning. The right-hander, who has found himself bouncing between starter and bullpen duties, most recently landed himself a spot in the rotation in replacement of David Price. With a new grip on his changeup, Stripling is proving that he can take on either end of the pitching role. Last season, the 30-year-old compiled a 3.47 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 101:20 K:BB across 32 appearances (15 starts).
Stripling will begin the season at the Dodgers' No. 5 starter, Michael J. Duarte of NBC LA reports.
Stripling had been battling Dustin May for the open rotation spot created when David Price opted out of the season, and manager Dave Roberts confirmed Monday that Stripling will be given first crack at holding down a starting role. The right-hander threw a simulated game Saturday and is lined up to pitch in the Dodgers' second game of the season against the Giants. Stripling has enjoyed success as a starter in the past and could be a strong option in both daily and season-long fantasy leagues.
Stripling in lined up to start the Dodgers' second game of the regular season, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
Stripling has yet to be announced as the Dodgers' fifth starter, but given the staff's current work schedule -- Stripling will throw a simulated game Saturday while his primary competition for the role, Dustin May, piggybacked with Walker Buehler in an intrasquad game Friday -- the most likely scenario is that Stripling starts and follows Clayton Kershaw in the rotation in order to give Buehler additional time to ramp up to a full workload. Meanwhile, May could continue to piggyback with Buehler early in the campaign, per Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register.
Stripling wants to be part of the Dodgers' starting rotation and is on track to be able to pitch six innings by the start of the season, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
With David Price opting out of the season, the Dodgers have a sudden need for a starter to round out the rotation. There are other candidates for the role -- namely, Dustin May and Tony Gonsolin -- but Stripling would appear to have a viable chance given his experience and success as a starter. The right-hander has opened 52 games for Los Angeles in his four-year career, registering a 3.71 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 250:55 K:BB over 257 innings.
Stripling could return to the Dodgers' rotation this season after David Price elected to opt out of playing due to the coronavirus, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
Stripling would seem to be battling with Dustin May for the Dodgers' fifth starter job, though the team will likely need to have at least six pitchers make a handful of starts at some point this season. Stripling made 15 starts and 17 relief appearances for the Dodgers last season, posting a strong 3.47 ERA on the back of a 25.1 percent strikeout rate and a 5.4 percent walk rate.
