  • Athletics' Ross Stripling: Shut down from throwing

    Stripling (elbow) has been shut down from throwing for up to 10 days, reports.

    Manager Mark Kotsay added that the veteran right-hander will be reevaluated after that point, but the news just adds to the misery of Stripling's first season in Oakland. Before going on the injured list Saturday, the 34-year-old had already tied a career worst with nine losses across his first 11 starts, and his 1.60 WHIP over that span also serves as a low-water mark over his first nine big-league seasons.

  • Athletics' Ross Stripling: Seeing doctor Sunday

    Stripling will see a doctor Sunday to evaluate his right elbow, Martin Gallegos of reports.

    Stripling was placed on the 15-day injured list Saturday due to a strained right elbow, and the severity of the injury will be known following Sunday's meeting. The right-hander has struggled this season, going 1-9 over 11 starts while registering a 5.82 ERA and 1.60 WHIP over 55.2 innings.

  • Athletics' Ross Stripling: Lands on IL with strained elbow

    The Athletics placed Stripling on the 15-day injured list Saturday due to a strained right elbow.

    Stripling is coming off a disastrous outing against the Astros on Friday, during which he allowed six runs on eight hits while striking out three over 3.2 innings to take the loss. The veteran right-hander is 1-9 over 11 starts this season with a 5.82 ERA, 1.60 WHIP and 35:12 K:BB over 55.2 innings. The severity of Stripling's elbow strain is not yet clear, but he will be on the shelf until at least June 9. The Athletics selected the contract of left-hander Jack O'Loughlin from Triple-A Las Vegas in a corresponding move, and the southpaw is a candidate to enter Oakland's rotation with eight starts in the minors under his belt this season. Kyle Muller started in 13 games for the Athletics last season, and he could also see some time in the rotation with Stripling sidelined.

  • Athletics' Ross Stripling: Skid continues Friday

    Stripling (1-9) allowed six runs on eight hits and struck out three without walking a batter over 3.2 innings to take the loss Friday versus the Astros.

    Stripling was perfect the first time through the order, but the Astros responded with six runs in the fourth inning, capped off by a three-run Jake Meyers homer run. This was Stripling's fourth straight loss, and he's allowed 24 runs (17 earned) over 15.1 innings in that span. The veteran right-hander has a 5.82 ERA, 1.60 WHIP and 35:12 K:BB over 55.2 innings across 11 starts this season. Stripling's poor performance hasn't cost him a rotation spot yet, but Kyle Muller tossed four scoreless innings in relief Friday and has past experience as a starter if the Athletics opt to mix things up. Stripling is tentatively projected to make his next appearance on the road versus the Rays.

  • Athletics' Ross Stripling: Takes third straight loss

    Stripling (1-8) allowed four runs on nine hits and struck out two without walking a batter over five-plus innings, taking the loss Saturday versus the Royals.

    Stripling has lost three straight starts, though he kept the ball in the yard and didn't walk a batter for the first time in that span. The veteran right-hander gave up two runs in the first inning and then ran into trouble again in the fifth and sixth. Stripling has a 5.19 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and 32:12 K:BB over 52 innings across 10 starts this season. The Athletics' rotation has been hammered with injuries, so he's at little risk of slipping out of a starting role any time soon. Stripling is projected to make his next start at home versus the Astros.

  • Athletics' Ross Stripling: Takes seventh loss

    Stripling (1-7) took the loss against Houston on Monday, allowing three runs (two earned) on four hits and two walks while striking out one batter over five innings.

    Stripling was efficient in the outing, needing just 52 pitches to get through five frames. However, he was pulled before the sixth inning despite the low pitch count and despite retiring the final five batters he faced, and a fourth-inning solo homer he served up to Alex Bregman ended up being the deciding factor in sending him to his MLB-high seventh loss. Stripling at least managed to improve from a horrific outing his previous trip to the mound, when he gave up 11 runs (five earned) over 1.2 innings against Texas.

  • Athletics' Ross Stripling: Rough day vs. Texas

    Stripling (1-6) took the loss Wednesday against the Rangers, allowing 11 runs (five earned) on 10 hits and two walks over 1.2 innings. He struck out two.

    It was certainly an outing to forget for Stripling -- after allowing a leadoff homer to Marcus Semien in the first inning, the right-hander allowed the first seven batters to reach in the second as Texas would put up a 10 spot in the frame. Stripling had held opponents to three runs or fewer in four straight starts prior to Wednesday's implosion. His ERA is now up to 5.14 with a 1.57 WHIP and 29:10 K:BB through eight starts (42 innings) this year. Stripling will look to get back on track in his next outing, tentatively lined up for this weekend in Seattle.

  • Athletics' Ross Stripling: Nabs first win since 2022

    Stripling (1-5) picked up the win Wednesday, scattering three hits over six scoreless innings in a 4-0 victory over the Pirates. He struck out two without walking a batter.

    It's been a long drought for Stripling, who prior to Wednesday had collected his last big-league win on the final day of the 2022 season while with the Blue Jays. The quality start was the second of the 2024 campaign for the right-hander, and he's allowed three runs or less in four straight outings. Despite his poor record, Stripling will take a respectable 4.24 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 27:8 K:BB through 40.1 innings into his next start, which is scheduled to come at home early next week against the Rangers.

  • Athletics' Ross Stripling: Solid against Baltimore

    Stripling did not factor into the decision Friday against the Orioles, allowing two runs on six hits while striking out three over 5.2 innings.

    Stripling was sharp against a hot Orioles offense, eventually winding up with a no-decision to end a stretch of five straight losses to open the year. The veteran right-hander lowered his ERA to 4.98 with a 1.49 WHIP and 25:8 K:BB through six starts (34.1 innings) this season. Stripling will look for his first win in his next start, currently slated for next week against the Pirates.

  • Athletics' Ross Stripling: Keeps loss streak in tact

    Stripling (0-5) took the loss Sunday, allowing three runs on five hits and a walk across five innings against the Athletics. He struck out four.

    Although Stripling yielded three or fewer runs for the third time in his last four starts, the A's weren't able to provide enough run support to put Stripling in contention for the win. The veteran righty has taken the loss in all five of his appearances this season -- a league-leading total -- and owns a 5.34 ERA and 1.57 WHIP across 28.2 innings. Stripling is tentatively scheduled for a start against the Orioles on Friday.

  • 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.
