Stratton (4-4) earned the win over the Padres on Friday, allowing seven hits and two walks while striking out seven over 6.2 scoreless innings.
This was a great way to close out the season for Stratton, who quietly had a strong second half for San Francisco; he posted a 2.59 ERA and averaged nearly a strikeout per inning after the All-Star break (48.2 innings). Stratton still puts too many runners on via the free pass, but he would seem to stand a decent chance to open next year in the rotation, even if the Giants add a starter in free agency this winter.
Stratton (3-4) lasted just four innings Sunday, surrendering three runs on five hits and two walks while striking out two in a losing effort against the Dodgers.
Stratton struggled finishing off batters in this one, getting into deep counts and needing 84 pitches (50 strikes) to complete four frames. The rookie has produced mixed results as a starter, notching double-digit strikeouts in two outings while failing to top four in his remaining seven. Still, Stratton's 3.43 ERA in those nine starts should be enough to earn him a spot in the Giants' rotation next year. The 27-year-old's final start of 2017 will come in a favorable matchup against the Padres on Saturday, giving him streaming appeal for owners trying to make a final push in their fantasy playoffs.
Stratton (3-3) earned the win Sunday, allowing two runs on five hits across six innings against the Diamondbacks. He walked one and struck out four in the 7-2 victory.
The reliever-turned-starter fared well against a potent Arizona offense, keeping it in check before the Giants' bullpen took over. Stratton will have his work cut out for him again in his next start, slated for Sunday against the Dodgers in Chavez Ravine.
Stratton recorded a single out on five pitches before a second rain delay ended his outing during Monday's win over the Dodgers. He didn't factor into the decision.
The 27-year-old righty entered with a 3.15 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and 7.9 K/9 through his six starts this season, so it was unfortunate that the rain delays wiped out his outing. While Stratton's numbers have been solid in the majors, he posted an underwhelming 5.11 ERA over 15 starts with Triple-A Sacramento, so expectations should probably remain in check over the final weeks of the season. He also faces a tough upcoming schedule, as his next start projects to be against the Diamondbacks at home and then against the Dodgers on the road.
Stratton allowed three runs on eight hits and three walks across four innings in a no-decision Monday against the Rockies. He struck out four.
Stratton allowed a solo home run to Charlie Blackmon in the third inning before he was tagged for three runs on four hits and a walk in the fourth. He did induce six groundball outs, but he labored throughout the appearance and was removed after throwing 98 pitches to retire just 12 batters. Stratton previously had rattled off three consecutive quality starts -- including two scoreless appearances and two with 10 strikeouts -- but he struggled in a tough matchup Monday. He will look to get back on track Sunday against the White Sox.
