Dodgers' Ross Stripling: Eager for chance to start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 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.

Dodgers' Ross Stripling: Potential rotation candidate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 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.

Dodgers' Ross Stripling: Maintaining workout schedule
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stripling has been throwing off a mound twice a week, playing catch every day and lifting weights regularly, Andy McCullough and Pedro Moura of The Athletic report.

Stripling indicated that he is staying in shape during the MLB hiatus, suggesting that he'd be "as ready as I can be" if spring training were to resume immediately. The right-hander isn't expected to be in the Dodgers' starting rotation at the start of a potential 2020 season, but he is nonetheless an important component on the team's versatile pitching staff.

Dodgers' Ross Stripling: Not among starters to open season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stripling was not among the Dodgers' starters that manager Dave Roberts named Monday, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Stripling has served as a swingman over most of his time in the majors, and he'll begin the 2020 campaign out of the Dodgers' bullpen, with Julio Urias and Alex Wood claiming the fourth and fifth spots in the rotation, respectively. The 30-year-old has made three starts this spring, recording a 1.50 ERA and 1.00 WHIP over six innings.

Dodgers' Ross Stripling: Exploring new changeup grip
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stripling has been experimenting with a new grip on his changeup, Ken Gurnick of reports.

The results of the experiment have thus far been encouraging enough to prompt the Dodgers to set up special video to better examine the offering. Per Statcast, Stripling threw a changeup 14.7 percent of the time in 2019, with opposing hitters registering a .269 average against the pitch.

Dodgers' Ross Stripling: No longer being traded to Angels
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stripling's reported trade from the Dodgers to the Angels was shut down on Sunday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

Stripling's move across town was reliant on the original Mookie Betts trade to Los Angeles which fell through unexpectedly. Angels' owner Arte Moreno expressed his dissatisfaction during the delayed process, according to Jon Heyman of MLB Network. With the Dodgers' latest addition of David Price, it seems likely that they will continue trying to move Stripling before spring training arrives.

Angels' Ross Stripling: Traded across town
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stripling has been sent along with Joc Pederson from the Dodgers to the Angels, with Luis Rengifo and other undisclosed players heading the other way, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

Stripling is a fairly expendable piece for a deep Dodgers pitching staff that lost Hyun-Jin Ryu (free agency) and Kenta Maeda (traded to Twins) this winter but gained David Price, Alex Wood and Jimmy Nelson. The latter two pitchers represent depth options more than anything else, but both were seemingly ahead of Stripling in the pecking order. Stripling should have a more legitimate opportunity to compete for a starting role with the Angels, and at the very least, he'll offer a substantial upgrade over their existing swingman types. Over his 52 career MLB starts, Stripling has accrued a 3.71 ERA and 18.4 K-BB percentage while limiting opposing hitters to a .308 wOBA.

Dodgers' Ross Stripling: Gets $2.1 million from Dodgers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stripling agreed to a one-year, $2.1 million deal with the Dodgers on Friday, avoiding arbitration, ESPN reports.

This was Stripling's first of three arbitration years before he hits the open market after the 2022 season. He is one of the best swingmen in the game and has a 3.51 career ERA in 387 innings.

Dodgers' Ross Stripling: Expected to pitch in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stripling will be available out of the bullpen for Game 4 of the NLDS against the Nationals on Monday and is expected to follow Rich Hill, Pedro Moura of The Athletic reports.

According to Moura, Stripling has been dealing with a stye in his right eye, but he was able to insert his contacts and has been cleared to pitch. With Hill not expected to throw more than four innings, Stripling figures to eat up at least a few frames in Game 4.

Dodgers' Ross Stripling: Strikes out seven
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stripling gave up three runs on four hits and one walk while striking out seven in a no-decision against the Padres on Wednesday.

Stripling ran into trouble early, allowing four baserunners and three runs in the first inning, but he recovered to only give up one hit in his next two frames. Stripling will finish the regular season with a 4-4 record and a 3.51 ERA with 92 strikeouts through 89.2 innings.

September 25, 2019 06:20 PM
Dodgers' Ross Stripling: Confirmed as starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stripling will start Wednesday against the Padres.

Stripling hasn't pitched more than three innings in any of his four appearances this month, so he likely won't pitch long enough to qualify for the win Wednesday. The right-hander posted an impressive 0.90 ERA, 0.80 WHIP and 9:0 K:BB over that 10-inning stretch.

Dodgers' Ross Stripling: Could start Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stripling will either start or serve as the bulk reliever Wednesday against the Padres, Alanna Rizzo of Spectrum SportsNet LA reports.

It had been thought that Stripling might line up to be the bulk reliever Tuesday, but perhaps Tony Gonsolin will fill that role. Ideally Stripling would work as the bulk reliever to give him a better chance of qualifying for a win. He has failed to log more than three innings in any of his last four appearances, but has allowed just one run with nine strikeouts in 10 innings over those four appearances.

Dodgers' Ross Stripling: Performs well in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stripling blanked the Rays over two innings in relief Tuesday in the Dodgers' 7-5 victory. He worked around a pair of base hits and struck out three in the 38-pitch appearance.

Stripling had been deployed as a starter in his previous outing Sept. 11 in Baltimore, but he shifted to relief this week in preparation for the role he'll fill for the Dodgers in the postseason. Clayton Kershaw, Walker Buehler and Hyun-Jin Ryu look set to serve as the Dodgers' three primary starters heading into the playoffs, while the fourth and final rotation spot could essentially be filled by a committee of multi-inning options that may include Stripling.

Dodgers' Ross Stripling: Won't start in postseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stripling was ruled out as a postseason starter by manager Dave Roberts on Tuesday, Ken Gurnick of reports.

The decision helps explain why Stripling was shifted to a bulk-relief role Tuesday after originally being listed as a starter against the Rays. Stripling is likely to be used in a similar manner for the remainder of the regular season as the Dodgers look to prepare him for the playoffs. Should the team require a fourth starter in the postseason, they could turn to Rich Hill (knee) -- though his health remains a significant question mark -- or opt for what Roberts described as a "cloudy" and "unconventional" approach.

Dodgers' Ross Stripling: To serve as bulk reliever
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stripling will work as the primary pitcher for Tuesday's game against the Rays, Ken Gurnick of reports.

As expected, Stripling will take the mound after Caleb Ferguson fires the first inning or two. Stripling surrendered one run on three hits and struck out two over three frames in his last outing Wednesday against Baltimore.

Dodgers' Ross Stripling: Won't start Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stripling won't make his scheduled start Tuesday against the Rays, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.

The Dodgers have yet to reveal why Stripling is no longer listed as the starter, but it's possible he could be used as the bulk reliever for Tuesday's contest. Caleb Ferguson will open the contest, though he figures to throw only the first inning or so.

Dodgers' Ross Stripling: Will start Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stripling will start Tuesday against Tampa Bay, Ken Gurnick of reports.

Stripling will start for the third time in four appearances since returning from the injured list Sept. 1. He is likely to again be on a limited pitch count, as he has averaged only 34 pitches in his previous two starts. While Stripling's role moving forward is unclear, the Dodgers could be preparing him for a piggyback role in the playoffs now that the status of Rich Hill (knee) is a question mark. Stripling has made 29 total appearances this season, 15 in relief and 14 as a starter, compiling a 3.40 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 82:19 K:BB over 84.2 innings.

Dodgers' Ross Stripling: Works three innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stripling allowed one earned run on three hits and no walks while striking out two across three innings Wednesday against the Orioles.

Stripling was once again limited in his pitch count, and he's now thrown 31, 36 and 37 pitches across his three appearances since returning from the injured list. He's been effective in that span, throwing eight shutout innings and striking out six. While providing strong ratios, Stripling won't get many chances for wins or strikeouts until he gets further stretched out. He's likely to pitch again in some capacity Tuesday against the Rays, though it's unclear how exactly the team will deploy him.

September 7, 2019 07:00 PM
Dodgers' Ross Stripling: Set to start Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stripling will start Wednesday's game against the Orioles, Ken Gurnick of reports.

Stripling threw 31 and 36 pitches in his first two appearances since coming off the injured list last weekend, so he'll likely be limited to a few innings again Wednesday. Stripling was followed by Dustin May in his last start, but May's status remains up in the air after he was hit in the head by a line drive during that outing.

Dodgers' Ross Stripling: Tosses three scoreless innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stripling threw three shutout innings Sunday, allowing two hits while striking out two in the win over Arizona. He did not factor into the decision.

In his first MLB action since July 24, Stripling needed just 31 pitches to cruise through three solid innings. Down the stretch, his role is a bit unclear; he's expected to move to the bullpen but could make a few spot starts as well.
