  • Braves' Spencer Strider: Starting Game 3

    Strider (oblique) will start Game 3 of the NLDS on Friday against the Phillies, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Strider will return to the mound for the first time since Sept. 18 following an oblique injury. It's unlikely that he'll see a full workload in the contest, but the right-hander is a welcome addition for Atlanta after having posted a 2.67 ERA and 0.99 WHIP with a 12.8 K/9 this season. As a result of Strider starting Game 3, Charlie Morton will now toe the rubber in Saturday's Game 4 matchup.

  • Braves' Spencer Strider: Makes NLDS roster

    Strider (oblique) will be on Atlanta's NLDS roster.

    Strider had an outstanding rookie season, posting a 2.67 ERA and 38.3 percent strikeout rate in 131.2 innings, but it was cut short in mid-September due to an oblique strain. While he will in fact be able to make it back for the postseason, it's unclear what sort of role he'll be able to play, as his experience as a reliever could lead Atlanta to deploy him that way if he isn't built up enough to start. Per Jeff Schultz of The Athletic, a Game 3 start for Strider is possible, though that could also go to Charlie Morton.

  • Braves' Spencer Strider: Checks out fine after side session

    Atlanta manager Brian Snitker said Strider (oblique) looked good during a bullpen session Sunday, but the team is still in the process of determining the rookie right-hander's role for its National League Division Series with he Phillies, Maria Torres of The Athletic reports.

    At the very least, Strider won't be available to start Games 1 and 2, as Atlanta plans on having Max Fried and Kyle Wright take the hill Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively. Charlie Morton will likely have the inside track in another spot in Atlanta's four-man rotation, but Strider could be in consideration to start Game 3 on Friday or Game 4 on Saturday if the team is comfortable with him from a health and workload standpoint. Even if Strider isn't quite built up enough to start after closing the regular season on the 15-day injured list with a left oblique strain, he should have a role out of the bullpen as a multi-inning reliever. After a brilliant first full season in the big leagues in which he went 11-5 with a 2.67 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and a whopping 202 strikeouts over 131.2 innings, the 23-year-old was rewarded Monday with a six-year, $75 million contract extension.

  • Braves' Spencer Strider: Inks long-term deal with Atlanta

    Atlanta announced Monday that Strider (oblique) signed a six-year, $75 million contract extension that runs through the 2028 season. The contract includes a $22 million team option or a $5 million buyout for 2029.

    Strider becomes the latest in a growing list of young, foundational pieces to come to terms with Atlanta on a long-term deal to buy out his arbitration years. Before a left oblique strain caused the 23-year-old to finish the regular season on the 15-day injured list, the rookie right-hander had arguably been Atlanta's top pitcher in 2022. After dazzling in relief to begin the season, Strider transitioned into the rotation in late May and finished with a 2.67 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 202:45 K:BB across 131.2 innings. Atlanta hopes to have Strider available for its upcoming National League Division Series with the Phillies that begins Tuesday, but he has yet to be formally activated.

  • Braves' Spencer Strider: Could return for NLDS

    Atlanta is optimistic about Strider's (oblique) chances of being ready for the NLDS against Philadelphia, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    Strider has been on the 15-day injured list since suffering a left oblique strain in late September, but he's been ramping up his throwing of late. Per O'Brien, the team will watch him throw more over the next 48 hours before making a final decision on his NLDS roster status.

  • Braves' Spencer Strider: Plays catch Tuesday

    Strider (oblique) had no issues while throwing on flat ground Tuesday, Mark Bowman of reports.

    The 23-year-old had been shut down from throwing due to the oblique strain since his last start Sept. 18, but he's now been cleared to start up a throwing program. Strider remains without an official return timeline, though he seems unlikely to make enough progress within the next week to be available for the start of the NLDS.

  • Braves' Spencer Strider: Not throwing

    Strider (oblique) has not been cleared to resume throwing, Mark Bowman of reports.

    Strider won't be returning during the regular season, but Atlanta hopes to make another deep playoff run, so Strider's status remains relevant. He has not pitched since Sept. 18 due to an oblique strain.

  • Braves' Spencer Strider: Placed on IL

    Strider was placed on the 15-day injured list with a left oblique strain Saturday, retroactive to Sept. 21.

    Strider dealt with an oblique issue following his most recent start, and he'll ultimately be sidelined for the remainder of the regular season. The right-hander will be eligible to return for the start of the postseason, and he's expected to be ready for the team's first playoff series, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports. Bryce Elder is a strong candidate to remain in Atlanta's rotation, while Alan Rangel was recalled Saturday.

  • Braves' Spencer Strider: Oblique ailing, next start TBD

    Strider is dealing with a sore right oblique and will be pushed back a few days in Atlanta's pitching schedule, meaning that he may not make a start this week, Mark Bowman of reports.

    He lined up to start Friday in Philadelphia, so if he is indeed pushed back "a few" days, he could pitch early next week in Washington. Bryce Elder, who is starting Wednesday against the Nationals, could stick around in the rotation if Strider needs to miss more than one turn.

  • Braves' Spencer Strider: Punches out 10 in win

    Strider (11-5) allowed one run on a hit and three walks over six innings Sunday, striking out 10 and earning a win over the Phillies.

    Strider fired five shutout frames before Alec Bohm tagged him with a solo shot in the sixth inning. The electrifying rookie recorded double-digit strikeouts for the sixth time this season and now owns a terrific 202:45 K:BB through just 131.2 frames. Strider has given up two or fewer earned runs in 13 of his last 15 starts, posting a 2.25 ERA across 84 frames during that stretch. He's lined up to start in Philadelphia next week.
