  • Athletics' Ross Stripling: Falls to 0-4

    Stripling (0-4) took the loss against St. Louis on Monday, allowing three runs on six hits and two walks while striking out four batters over 5.2 innings.

    Though Stripling picked up his fourth straight loss to begin the campaign -- tied with Luis Castillo for most in the league -- he at least managed to improve upon the six-run, 11-hit performance he posted his previous time on the mound. The right-hander gave up a season-low six hits Monday and came one out away from a quality start, but he garnered only one run of support from Oakland's offense. Stripling has given the A's decent length this season by averaging nearly six innings per start, but he's well off the fantasy radar in standard leagues given his poor overall numbers.

  • Athletics' Ross Stripling: Touched up for 11 hits by Texas

    Stripling (0-3) took the loss against the Rangers on Wednesday, allowing six runs on 11 hits and three walks while striking out five batters over six innings.

    Stripling took a tough-luck loss despite allowing just one run over seven innings against Boston his last time out, but he was much more responsible for his third loss of the campaign Wednesday. The veteran right-hander allowed 14 baserunners, and it was somewhat surprising that he was able to last six frames on 97 pitches given that amount of traffic. Stripling has at least been able to eat innings for Oakland this year -- he's averaging 6.0 frames per start through three appearances -- but his 5.50 ERA, 1.72 WHIP and 14:5 K:BB aren't appealing for fantasy purposes.

  • Athletics' Ross Stripling: Hit with tough loss

    Stripling (0-2) took the loss Wednesday, allowing one run on eight hits over seven innings against the Red Sox. He struck out three and did not issue any walks.

    Stripling managed to hold the Red Sox to one run on the afternoon despite allowing six hits over the first four innings. Still, he would end up being tagged with his second loss as Oakland's offense was shut out for the second time in its last three games. The right-hander has now surrendered 15 hits over his first two starts (12 innings) and things won't get any easier next week when the A's travel to Arlington to take on the reigning World Series champions.

  • Athletics' Ross Stripling: Coughs up five runs

    Stripling (0-1) allowed five runs (four earned) on seven hits and two walks over five innings Friday, striking out six in a 6-4 loss to Cleveland.

    Stripling struggled right out of the gate by yielding three runs in the first inning, including a two-run shot from Jose Ramirez. Stripling managed to turn in a few scoreless frames before Cleveland pushed two more runs across in the fifth. His velocity was down a bit, with his fastball averaging just under 91.0 mph after he averaged 92.0 mph with the Giants last season. The veteran righty is currently in line to face the Red Sox at home next week.

  • Athletics' Ross Stripling: Impressive in spring debut

    Stripling (finger) didn't factor into the decision in a Cactus League win over the Rangers on Sunday, allowing an unearned run on two hits and recording a strikeout over three innings.

    Stripling came on in the fourth inning in relief of starter JP Sears, who pitched a dominant first three frames that included seven strikeouts. Stripling didn't come close to matching his southpaw rotation mate in that regard, but he equaled Sears' workload and escaped without an earned run on his line. The veteran right-hander was originally slated to work up to 45 pitches, but Martin Gallegos of reports that manager Mark Kotsay relayed Stripling needed to put in another inning's worth of work in the bullpen to reach that count because he'd been so efficient on the mound.

  • Athletics' Ross Stripling: Ready for spring debut

    Stripling (finger) is scheduled to make his Cactus League debut Sunday against the Rangers, Martin Gallegos of reports.

    Lefty JP Sears will draw the start for Oakland, but Stripling is likely to enter the contest behind him and pitch an inning or two. The Athletics have delayed Stripling's entry into the spring pitching schedule after he was scratched from a start last week due to a cut on his right index finger, but the minor injury shouldn't affect his readiness for Opening Day. Despite being deployed in relief Sunday, Stripling is still expected to occupy a spot in Oakland's rotation during the regular season.

  • Athletics' Ross Stripling: Throws side session Tuesday

    Stripling (finger) threw a side session Tuesday but remains without a firm timetable for his Cactus League debut, reports.

    The right-hander was scratched from Monday's start against the Diamondbacks because of a cut on his right index finger, which was described as minor by manager Mark Kotsay. Stripling did feel well enough to throw Tuesday's side session, so his delayed spring debut should come at some point in the near future.

  • Athletics' Ross Stripling: First spring turn pushed back

    Stripling, who was due to start Monday's Cactus League game against the Diamondbacks, will see his turn pushed back at least "a couple of days" due to a minor cut on his right index finger, reports.

    Manager Mark Kotsay didn't imply the issue was too serious, and the fact Stripling is expected to make his delayed debut later in the week seems to bear that out. Mitch Spence, a Rule 5 pick this winter, will slide into Stripling's starting spot for Monday's game.

  • Athletics' Ross Stripling: Excited about new pitch

    Stripling has begun unveiling a new "Deathball" pitch that he worked on this offseason, Martin Gallegos of reports.

    The veteran right-hander was just acquired from the Giants on Feb. 2 and has already been deploying the pitch in front of his new coaches and teammates. Stripling admits he's still perfecting his use of the offering, which he's primarily used in bullpen sessions thus far and is described as a modified version of a slider that drops straight down late. Stripling plans to use his Cactus League appearances to experiment with it in game situations and decide if he'll be utilizing it in his arsenal when he opens the season as the Athletics' projected No. 3 starter.

  • Athletics' Ross Stripling: Lands in Oakland via trade

    The Athletics acquired Stripling and cash considerations from the Giants on Friday in exchange for Jonah Cox.

    Stripling's one season in San Francisco was a disappointment, as he posted a 5.36 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 70:16 K:BB across 89 innings covering 11 starts and 11 relief appearances. The 34-year-old will slide into the Athletics' rotation and gets to pitch in a favorable home environment. However, Stripling doesn't pitch deep into games and that, along with a lack of support from the putrid Oakland offense, means wins figure to be hard to come by.

  • Giants' Ross Stripling: Exercises player option for 2024

    Stripling exercised his $12.5 million player option with the Giants on Friday, Danny Emerman of reports.

    Stripling is now officially set to return to San Francisco for the 2024 season. The 33-year-old right-hander likely would have struggled to find an AAV higher than $12.5 million in free agency after registering a disappointing 5.36 ERA over 11 starts and 11 relief appearances (89 innings) during the 2023 campaign.

  • Giants' Ross Stripling: Struggles in bulk role

    Stripling allowed four runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out four over four innings in Saturday's 7-0 loss to the Dodgers. He did not factor in the decision.

    The Giants were already down 3-0 by the time Stripling entered the game. He didn't do anything to keep it close, allowing a pair of runs in both the fifth and eighth innings. This was Stripling's second appearance since he returned from a back injury, and he's yielded seven runs over 7.1 innings in those games. He's at a 5.57 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 68:16 K:BB through 85.2 innings over 21 outings (11 starts) this season.

  • Giants' Ross Stripling: Reinstated from injured list

    Stripling (back) was reinstated from the injured list Friday, Evan Webeck of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Stripling has been sidelined since Aug. 19 with a mid-back strain but threw 50 pitches in a live batting practice session Monday. His exact role hasn't been confirmed, but Alex Wood had his start pushed to Tuesday, while Kyle Harrison was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Friday. That combination suggests Stripling could be in line to start Saturday during a doubleheader against the Rockies.

  • Giants' Ross Stripling: Fires 50 pitches in live BP

    Stripling (back) threw 50 pitches in a live bullpen session Monday, Maria I. Guardado of reports.

    Stripling hasn't been activated from the 15-day injured list just yet, though the transaction could be made sometime over the next few days. The veteran right-hander also voiced his frustration about his performance during the 2023 campaign and indicated that he's fully committed to sticking with the Giants next season, even though his contract contains a player option for 2024 that would allow him to pursue free agency.

  • Giants' Ross Stripling: Expected back soon

    Striping (back) is expected to be activated from the 15-day injured list soon, Danny Emerman of KNBR 680 San Francisco reports.

    Stripling has made just one, one-inning rehab appearance and that was over a week ago. The usage combined with the news that he's expected back soon suggests that the Giants plan to use him in a relief role down the stretch.

  • Giants' Ross Stripling: Makes one-inning rehab start

    Stripling (back) gave up one run on two hits while striking out a batter in a one-inning rehab start Friday with Triple-A Sacramento.

    Before landing on the injured list in mid-August with a mid-back strain, Stripling had covered at least four innings in each of his seven outings with the Giants following the All-Star break. With that in mind, his light workload Friday was somewhat surprising, and it could be an indication that the Giants may not intend to bring him back as a traditional starter. San Francisco has been getting by with four regular starters of late in Logan Webb, Alex Cobb, Kyle Harrison and Tristan Beck while deploying Sean Manaea as a primary pitcher out of the bullpen in lieu of a fifth starter.

  • Giants' Ross Stripling: Ready for rehab assignment

    Stripling (back) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Sacramento on Friday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Stripling last pitched Aug. 16, so he isn't likely to need a lengthy rehab assignment. Assuming things go well, he could be activated in early September and is likely to immediately slot back into the rotation.
