  • Ross Stripling's Spring Debut Pushed Back

    Headshot for Ross Stripling

    Oakland Athletics right-hander Ross Stripling (finger) was originally scheduled to make his Cactus League debut with his new team on Monday against the Arizona Diamondbacks, but he is being pushed back a few days with what manager Mark Kotsay described as a minor cut on his right index finger. Instead, Mitch Spence, a Rule 5 draft pick, replaced Stripling on the mound. The injury to Stripling's finger doesn't sound serious at all. The 34-year-old is locked into Oakland's starting rotation in 2024 after being acquired in a trade with the San Francisco Giants. He'll be moving to another pitcher-friendly environment, but that's about where the positives end. Stripling doesn't miss many bats and won't get much run support from the A's offense. He's outside of RotoBaller's top-100 fantasy starting pitchers.

  • Alex Wood, Ross Stripling Viewed As Starters

    Oakland Athletics general manager David Forst said that left-hander Alex Wood and right-hander Ross Stripling are viewed as starters with spring training right around the corner. In addition to Wood and Stripling, Paul Blackburn and JP Sears are at the top of the team's rotation for 2024. The A's signed Wood to a one-year, $8.5 million deal last weekend. The 33-year-old veteran southpaw pitched in a hybrid role with the Giants in 2023 and had a 4.33 ERA, 1.43 WHIP, 74 K's and 42 walks in 97 2/3 frames. Oakland's pitcher-friendly ballpark should help, but Wood has very limited fantasy appeal with diminished velocity and stuff. He'll only be useful in deep AL-only leagues. Stripling was acquired in a trade with the Giants on Friday. He disappointed in San Fran with a 5.36 ERA, 1.35 WHIP, 70 K's and 16 innings as a swingman. Like Wood, Stripling has very little fantasy upside.

  • Ross Stripling Dealt To A's

    The San Francisco Giants have traded pitcher Ross Stripling to the Oakland A's in exchange for infielder/outfielder Jonah Cox. The veteran right-hander authored a 5.36 ERA across 22 outings (11 starts) with the Giants in the 2023 season but also tossed a 3.01 ERA across 32 appearances (24 starts) with the Blue Jays as recently as the 2022 campaign. Stripling's biggest asset is his control as he has walked just 5.5% of the batters he has faced in his big-league career despite punching out only 21.9% of the batters he has faced. All told, the 34-year-old owns a 3.96 ERA across 226 MLB outings (115 starts) in stints with the Dodgers, Blue Jays, and Giants.

  • Ross Stripling Working On New Pitch

    Headshot for Ross Stripling

    San Francisco Giants right-hander Ross Stripling is working on a new pitch for the 2024 season -- the deathball, which is a type of gyro slider that is designed to drop late. The pitch looked filthy while Stripling was throwing it live on Thursday while he worked out north of Houston. Stripling said he's looking for more swing and miss with the pitch. The 34-year-old veteran struggled in his first year in the Bay Area in 2023, going 0-5 with a 5.36 ERA (5.21 FIP) and 1.35 WHIP while walking 16 and striking out 70 in only 89 innings pitched over 22 appearances (11 starts). At least while Robbie Ray (elbow) is recovering from Tommy John surgery in the first half of the 2024 season, Stripling should be included in San Fran's starting rotation, but with a career 21.9% strikeout rate, he's going to need to start missing more bats to give fantasy managers more upside as a matchup-based streamer.
