Strahm capitalized on a big day from the Padres' lineup, hurling a quality start and picking up his first win of the season. The 27-year-old was tagged for five earned by the Diamondbacks in his first start of the season, but he hasn't given up more than two runs in any of his four starts since then, leaving him with a solid 3.03 ERA, a 1.10 WHIP and a 27:5 K:BB over 32.2 innings.
Strahm is expected to make his next start Thursday against the Braves, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
Strahm had been listed as the Padres' probable starter for the second game of the series in Atlanta on Wednesday, but the organization was eager to build in an extra day of rest for the left-hander, who is working as a full-time starter for the first time since 2016. The Padres are thus set to call up Cal Quantrill from Triple-A El Paso to take the hill Wednesday, thus giving San Diego a temporary six-man rotation. San Diego plans to implement an undisclosed innings cap for Strahm this season, but he should remain a quality option in the majority of leagues most weeks, assuming his matchup(s) aren't too unfavorable. Through five starts, Strahm has compiled a 3.04 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 21 strikeouts in 26.2 innings.
Straham allowed two runs on four hits with eight strikeouts and no walks across six innings in a no-decision against the Nationals on Friday.
The 27-year-old again settled for a no-decision despite another very strong start. That's become all too common for Straham unfortunately, who is 0-1 with three no-decisions in his last four outings despite posting a 1.50 ERA since a rough first start of the season. He is 0-2 with a 3.04 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 21 strikeouts in 26.2 innings this year. His next start will be on the road against the Braves on Wednesday.
Strahm allowed one run on two hits while striking out five over eight innings in a no-decision against the Reds on Friday. He did not issue a walk.
The lefty served up a homer to Eugenio Suarez in the first but was masterful after that, allowing only one batter to reach (on a softly-hit infield single) over his final seven frames. Strahm completed his eight innings on just 87 pitches, 62 of which went for strikes. After a rocky 2019 debut, Strahm has now gone 18 innings with just two earned runs allowed with an 11:2 K:BB over his last three starts. He will look to keep it going next weekend in Washington.
Strahm didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 5-4 win over the Diamondbacks, allowing four hits over five scoreless innings while striking out four.
The southpaw dealt with runners in scoring position in the first three innings but was able to shut down the Arizona offense each time. Strahm exited the game after 89 pitches (57 strikes) in line for his first win of the season, but Gerardo Reyes promptly let the D-backs back into the game in the bottom of the sixth inning. Strahm will carry a 4.26 ERA and 8:5 K:BB through 12.2 innings into his next outing, at home Friday against the Reds.
