Stripling (2-4) took the loss Wednesday as the Blue Jays fell 3-2 to the Yankees, giving up three runs (two earned) on three hits and two walks over 6.2 innings. He struck out nine.
The right-hander was out-dueling Gerrit Cole and appeared headed for the win until Gary Sanchez took him deep in the seventh inning for the game's deciding runs. Striping still tied his season high in strikeouts en route to his second quality start, and he sports an impressive 2.45 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 29:8 K:BB through 29.1 innings over his last five outings.
Stripling didn't factor into the decision Friday against the Red Sox after allowing four runs on five hits and two walks across 5.2 innings. He struck out six.
Stripling didn't have his best stuff on the mound and ended a streak of three straight outings allowing one run or fewer, while also failing to complete at least six innings for his third game in a row. The right-hander, who owns a 4.91 ERA across 47.2 innings this season, is scheduled to make his next start at home against the Yankees next week.
Stripling (2-3) picked up the win Saturday, giving up one run on seven hits and a walk over five innings in a 6-2 victory over the Astros. He struck out four.
After an 0-3 start to the season over his first seven starts, Stripling has now won two straight, allowing only a single run in each. The right-hander threw 74 pitches (42 strikes) before exiting, and he'll carry a 4.71 ERA and 43:12 K:BB through 42 innings into his next outing.
Stripling (1-3) earned the win Sunday against Cleveland after tossing five innings of one-run ball, giving up two hits and a walk while fanning three.
Stripling earned his first win of the campaign and has looked outstanding over his last two starts, allowing just one earned run across his last 12 innings of work -- posting a 10:3 K:BB in that span. The right-hander is expected to take the mound next Sunday at home against the Astros.
Stripling won't start Saturday in Cleveland as previously scheduled, as the game has been postponed due to inclement weather, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.
The game will be made up as part of a traditional doubleheader Sunday. Stripling will likely start one of the two games, though the Blue Jays have yet to lay out their plans.
Stripling allowed two hits and two walks while striking out seven across seven scoreless innings Monday against the Blue Jays. He didn't factor into the decision.
Stripling worked as the primary pitcher in the series opener, inheriting a five-run deficit after Trent Thornton struggled through the first inning. The right-hander's solid outing was a welcome sight for the Blue Jays, as Stripling was coming off a tough performance in his last appearance against Boston, surrendering six runs on eight hits across 3.2 frames. Stripling has accrued a 5.63 ERA with 36 punchouts through 32 innings this season and has worked five or more innings just twice in six starts.
Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo confirmed Stripling would serve as a primary pitcher behind opener Trent Thornton in Monday's game against the Rays, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Thornton will likely work the first 2-to-3 innings of the contest before the Blue Jays turn the game over to Stripling. The transition from a traditional starting gig to a bulk-reliever role can only help Stripling, who has posted a 7.20 ERA and 1.76 WHIP through his first six outings.
Stripling won't start Monday's game against the Rays, with the Blue Jays announcing that Trent Thornton would instead serve as the team's opening pitcher of the day, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports.
Toronto hasn't suggested that Stripling has been scratched from the contest, so he could still be available out of the bullpen as a primary pitcher. Thornton hasn't worked more than 2.2 innings or tossed more than 42 pitches in any of his 14 appearances (two starts) this season, so the Blue Jays will likely treat him as more of an opener than a traditional starter. If the team plans to use Stripling behind Thornton, the former would actually be in better position to factor into any decision than he would in a traditional starting role. If he goes unused Monday, Stripling could end up starting against the Yankees in New York on Wednesday, when Toronto will have an opening in the rotation after Anthony Kay was optioned to the minors last week.
Stripling (0-3) allowed six runs on eight hits and struck out three in 3.2 innings, taking the loss Wednesday versus Boston.
Stripling had a disastrous first, as he allowed back-to-back home runs to Alex Verdugo and J.D. Martinez. Enrique Hernandez added the last run on Stripling's line with a solo shot in the second. The veteran right-hander hasn't been able to find a groove in 2021 with a 7.20 ERA, 1.76 WHIP and 29:8 K:BB across 25 innings. He tentatively lines up to face Tampa Bay next week.
Stripling allowed two runs on four hits and a walk while striking out nine in five innings in Thursday's win over Atlanta. He didn't factor into the decision.
Stripling hadn't struck out more than five batters in any of his first four starts, but he was dominant against Atlanta. He gave up two runs in the first inning but bounced back by tossing four scoreless innings afterward. The right-hander has now improved to a 5.91 ERA and 1.69 WHIP in 21.1 innings across his first five starts of the year. He tentatively lines up to make his next start at home against the Red Sox on Wednesday.
Stripling (0-2) yielded three runs on six hits and three walks over 3.2 innings Friday, striking out three and taking a loss against Houston.
Stripling was cursed by a second inning in which he allowed a two-run shot to Carlos Correa before walking in a third run. Stripling needed 82 pitches to record only 11 outs and saw his season ERA climb to 6.61. He's failed to finish five innings in three of his four outings on the year. Stripling is currently lined up to take the mound in Atlanta next week.
Stripling allowed two runs on five hits and a walk over 4.1 innings during Sunday's start against Atlanta. He struck out four and did not factor in the decision.
Making his first start since April 8 due to forearm tightness, Stripling threw 70 pitches over his 4.1 innings of work. He allowed runs in the second and fifth innings in the overall successful outing. The 6-foot-3 righty lowered his season ERA to 6.39 with a 14:4 K:BB through 12.2 innings. Stripling is slated to take the mound in Houston next weekend.
The Blue Jays will activate Stripling (forearm) from the 10-day injured list to start Sunday's game against Atlanta, Ben Wagner of Sportsnet reports.
Toronto will clear a spot on the 26-man roster for Stripling by moving catcher Alejandro Kirk (hip) to the 10-day IL. Stripling, who had been sidelined for the last three-plus weeks with a right forearm strain, could have a limited pitch count in his first start since April 8, making him a relatively unappealing streaming option.
Stripling (forearm) could start Sunday's game against Atlanta, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.
He was cleared for mound work a week ago and has been throwing bullpen sessions. With Hyun Jin Ryu (glute strain) landing on the injured list, the Jays need all hands on deck. Even if Stripling gets activated for Sunday's start, he may not be able to log five-plus innings.
Blue Jays general manager Ross Atkins said Stripling (forearm) threw a bullpen session Thursday, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Atkins went on to say that Stripling "could be back in the mix in days," suggesting that the Blue Jays are hopeful he'll spend the minimum 10 days on the injured list, or close to it. After Anthony Kay made an unsuccessful spot start in place of Stripling last week, the Blue Jays opted for a bullpen game in Stripling's most recent turn through the rotation Wednesday against the Red Sox. Trent Thornton pitched the first two innings of that game, while Tommy Milone followed him and served as the primary bulk reliever.
Stripling was placed on the 10-day injured list with a mild flexor strain Thursday, Rob Longley of the Toronto Sun reports.
Stripling was scratched from his scheduled start Wednesday after he couldn't get his forearm loose during a workout the morning of the game. The Blue Jays are hopeful that the right-hander is dealing with a minor issue, but he'll still land on the injured list after he was diagnosed with a strain. Anthony Kay was recalled by Toronto to start Thursday's game against Kansas City. It's not yet clear when Stripling will be able to return.
Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo said Stripling was scratched from his scheduled start Wednesday against the Yankees after developing right forearm tightness, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Toronto will call on T.J. Zeuch to make a spot start on short notice after Montoyo said Stripling "couldn't get the forearm to get loose" while he went through a workout Wednesday morning, according to Keegan Matheson of MLB.com. The Blue Jays are labeling Stripling as day-to-day for the time being and are holding out hope that he can miss only one turn through the rotation, but a trip to the 10-day injured list looks to be a strong possibility.
Stripling is no longer scheduled to start Wednesday's game against the Yankees, as the Blue Jays will instead have T.J. Zeuch take the mound, Ben Wagner of Sportsnet reports.
Toronto manager Charlie Montoyo is scheduled to meet with the media prior to Wednesday's 1:07 p.m. ET opening pitch, so an explanation behind the decision to scratch Stripling should come shortly. Stripling had previously made two starts for Toronto, posting a 7.56 ERA, 1.92 WHIP and 10:3 K:BB across 8.1 innings.
Stripling allowed four runs on six hits and a walk while striking out five over five innings in a loss to the Angels on Thursday. He didn't factor into the decision.
The righty has struggled in his first two appearances of the campaign, failing to exceed five innings both times. The 31-year-old threw only 46 of his 70 pitches for strikes and gave up a homer for the second straight start, although he's in good company with the many other pitchers who have been victimized by Mike Trout. Stripling is still looking to return to his 2019 form, which saw him record a 3.47 ERA. His next opportunity to take the rubber will come Tuesday against the Yankees.
Stripling (0-1) lasted just 3.1 innings Saturday against the Yankees, picking up the loss after allowing three runs on seven hits and two walks, striking out five.
Stripling's rotation spot may be a temporary one, as he could head to the bullpen once Robbie Ray (elbow) and Nate Pearson (groin) are healthy. He certainly didn't help his case to stick around during his season debut. A two-out rally led to the Yankees' first run on a DJ LeMahieu single in the second inning. He then allowed a solo shot to Gary Sanchez to open the fourth inning before being pulled after he allowed two more batters to reach base.
