Blue Jays' Ross Stripling: Takes loss in short outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 where he allowed a two-run shot to Carlos Correa before walking in a third run. He needed 82 pitches to get through just 3.2 frames 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.

Blue Jays' Ross Stripling: Fans four in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Blue Jays' Ross Stripling: In line to start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Blue Jays' Ross Stripling: Could start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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' Ross Stripling: Cleared for mound work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Blue Jays' Ross Stripling: Placed on 10-day injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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' Ross Stripling: Dealing with forearm tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Blue Jays' Ross Stripling: Scratched from Wednesday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Blue Jays' Ross Stripling: Strikes out five
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Blue Jays' Ross Stripling: Knocked out in third inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Blue Jays' Ross Stripling: Slated to start second game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Charlie Montoyo confirmed Stripling would start the Blue Jays' second game of the season Saturday against the Yankees in New York, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Heading into the spring, Stripling looked to be on the outside looking in for a rotation spot, but injuries to Robbie Ray (elbow) and Nate Pearson (groin) allowed him to claim a starting role. In order to keep the Blue Jays' other starters on their normal throwing schedules, Stripling will be slotting into Ray's No. 2 spot in the rotation to begin the season. Though Stripling was effective this spring with a 3.77 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 11:1 K:BB in 14.1 innings, the matchup versus a potent Yankees offense makes it difficult to justify keeping him active this week in most fantasy leagues.

Blue Jays' Ross Stripling: Getting stretched out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stripling threw 68 pitches over 3.2 innings in Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Tigers, and the right-hander is expected to toss around 80 pitches in his final spring outing, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.

Nate Pearson's groin injury has pushed Stripling into the Jays' initial rotation plans, and he hasn't needed much time to get stretched out in response. His 5.19 spring ERA looks shaky, but his 9:1 K:BB over 8.2 innings is much more promising, and the 31-year-old could prove to be a useful streaming option for fantasy purposes while he's in the rotation. Prior to his 2020 struggles, Stripling posted a 3.51 ERA and 1.20 WHIP over his first four seasons while filling a swingman role for the Dodgers.

Blue Jays' Ross Stripling: Favorite for rotation role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stripling is now the favorite to open the year as the Blue Jays' fifth starter following Nate Pearson's groin setback, Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic reports.

Stripling looked like he could be the odd man out heading into camp, but now he may get at least a turn or two in the rotation until Pearson gets healthy. He hasn't officially been named the fifth starter, as Thomas Hatch, Anthony Kay and T.J. Zeuch are also in the mix, but Stripling appears to have a clear edge. Whoever wins Toronto's fifth starter job is likely to open with starts against the Rangers, Angels and Royals.

Blue Jays' Ross Stripling: Excels in spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stripling worked two scoreless frames Wednesday versus the Orioles in his Grapefruit League debut. He scattered three hits and issued no walks while striking out two.

Stripling's control was on point throughout the afternoon, as he peppered in 28 of his 38 pitches for strikes, per Mike Wilner of the Toronto Star. Though Stripling worked as a swingman for the Blue Jays last season upon coming over from the Dodgers at the trade deadline, Toronto team president Mark Shapiro said Tuesday that he projects the right-hander to begin the 2021 campaign as a member of the rotation, according to Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca. Stripling's hold on a starting role could slip once Nate Pearson (groin) is fully healthy, however.

Blue Jays' Ross Stripling: Arriving Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stripling (personal) will arrive at camp Wednesday, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.

Stripling has been away from the team due to the birth of his child. A Wednesday arrival means he'll still have more than a month to get ready for Opening Day, so the delay shouldn't significantly impact his push for a rotation spot.

Blue Jays' Ross Stripling: Not yet at camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stripling has yet to arrive at camp while awaiting the birth of his child, Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic reports.

Stripling is expected to compete for a back-end rotation spot to begin the regular season, but he'll be unavailable for the start of spring training. The right-hander served as a swingman during his first year with the Blue Jays in 2020, posting a 5.84 ERA and 1.50 WHIP over 49.1 innings across 12 appearances (nine starts). It's not yet clear when Stripling will arrive at camp, but his wife is expecting a baby "very soon."

Blue Jays' Ross Stripling: Settles without arbitrator
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stripling and the Blue Jays agreed to a one-year, $3 million contract Friday, avoiding arbitration, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.

Moving away from Los Angeles this past season was supposed to finally give Stripling the chance to thrive as a full-time starter. Instead, he remained a swingman, starting nine games and relieving in three more. His strikeout rate plummeted from 25.1 percent to 18.2 percent, while his ERA, which had never before come in above 4.00, sat at 5.84. Toronto will be hoping to see a bounceback season from the righty in his age-31 campaign.

Blue Jays' Ross Stripling: Pitches in postseason finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stripling (lower leg) was used in relief in Game 2 of the Blue Jays' AL Wild Card Series loss to the Rays, giving up a run on three hits over 1.1 innings.

Stripling entered the postseason in uncertain health after being struck in the leg by a comebacker in his final appearance of the regular season Sept. 23, but his inclusion on the 28-man wild-card roster indicates that the injury wasn't anything worrisome. After acquiring Stripling in a deadline-day deal with the Dodgers, the Blue Jays will retain his rights for two more seasons, but the 30-year-old may not be a surefire bet to have a contract tendered. He struggled mightily during his time between the two clubs in 2020, posting a 5.84 ERA and 1.50 WHIP while giving up 13 home runs in 49.1 innings.

Blue Jays' Ross Stripling: Avoids serious injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Blue Jays' Ross Stripling: Leaves Saturday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
