Ross Stripling 2018 Outlook

Recommended Posts

Any concern with this guy in the second half that he's going to burn out or get put back in the bullpen due to such an increase in innings from last year?

I’m worried about his role not his production. I think it’s possible they limit his innings. But the 6 man rotation will help and although it has sucked sometimes pulling him after 5 or 6 ip also helps. So really it comes down to will the dodgers all be healthy? I think roberts wants to make all the pitchers prove that before he mucks with roles.

Has anyone seen any concrete reports of Stripling going back to the bullpen at some point this season? I thought I heard the guys on the ASG telecast mention something, but didn't catch the whole thing. He's on pace for ~165 innings after 75 IP in 2017 and 120 IP in 2016.

I haven’t heard anything about him going back but I didn’t get to watch the game. However I can’t imagine they would do that with the way he’s pitched this year. He’s a large part of why they are where they are and if he’s on pace for just 165 IP that’s not a very large increase. Only 45 more innings than 2017 after an increase of 45 innings the previous year.

Stripling is 28 and threw a lot of innings at Texas A&M and in the minors. I don't think they'll worry about an innings increase the same way they would with a 21-year-old top prospect. This will likely be his career year. His future is now.

Running out of gas? I hope they dont put him in the pen citing innings or whatever

Unfortunate as he was one strike away from a very good 5 inning line and the win. But he didn't get the needed strike and the Hoskins bomb ensued to wreck the night.

The zone last night was crazy tight. Wouldn't read too much into it.

I was at the game, it was a humid swampy mess. Every pitcher on both sides was having control issues and a tight zone. But as others said he came very close to a good line fantasy wise.

 

still don’t know why they pitched to Hoskins with a base open, but then again Herrera homered after him anyway so maybe there was no good answer from a managerial perspective.

Are they moving him to the pen now?

Roberts speaking in reference to who starts this Sunday. 

 

“Trying to look at each individual guy, and see if we want Ross to make that start. Do we want Kenta [Maeda] to go on regular rest? What role would Ross play, if we don’t start him, to curtail a few innings? We don’t need to make that decision right now, but these are good options for us.”

 

He says "to curtail a few innings".  So it seems like Strip could get skipped here and there and maybe work some innings in long relief in between.  I doubt he's going to be straight demoted to the bullpen, esp b/c Maeda and Hill are a sneeze away from the DL and Buheler can be pretty hittable.  As for this Sunday I'm not planning on him starting.

what is his outlook in the future. in a keeper or dynasty

 

cant we expect him to be in the rotation next year in the 2 or 3 spot?

Everyone goes to bad stretch

 

I hope you're right that its a bad stretch but its possible that fatigue is catching up with his IP totals. Also, even a bad stretch may get him to the pen when the team has 6 other very good SP options

So wheels off or hiccup? I watched the games, good control, just found the fat part of the plate one to many times I think.

 

At home this week but vs Houston :huh:

Likely no Correa, Altuve, or Gattis. Pitching for his life in the rotation. I'd start him (unless he's moved to the pen before that)

and then after Houston (assuming he doesn't get skipped) he's @COL on the 11th.
