Spencer Strider News
Atlanta Braves starting pitcher Spencer Strider, who was pushed back from Monday to Wednesday, threw seven innings of one-run ball against the Philadelphia Phillies. Strider had nine strikeouts on the night with 77 strikes over 110 pitches. He induced 17 swings and misses. The Cy Young hopeful gave up four hits and two walks on the evening, lowering his ERA to 3.73 and running his record to 17-5. Strider lasted just 2 2/3 innings his last time out on Sept 6 against St. Louis, giving up six earned runs. His next time out should come early next week against the Phillies again in Atlanta.
Atlanta Braves starting pitcher Spencer Strider (illness) will have his scheduled start pushed back from Monday to Wednesday due to an illness. It could be a big blow to fantasy managers who were expecting Strider to have a two-start week. The star pitcher will now throw just Wednesday for the week, in Philadelphia. Strider has been a Cy Young hopeful all year but has struggled over his last two games, giving up 10 earned runs over 8 2/3 innings. He's still one of the best in the game and for fantasy purposes, so look for him to bounce back when he toes the rubber his next time out.
Atlanta Braves starting pitcher Spencer Strider completed six innings of work on Thursday against the Los Angeles Dodgers. He gave up four runs but struck out nine and walked only two to earn his MLB-leading 16th win of the season in the eventual 8-7 victory. Strider is one of the most valuable arms in fantasy baseball, as he owns a 3.56 ERA and 1.05 WHIP with 245 strikeouts across 159 1/3 innings. It's hard to find strikeout numbers like that anywhere else, and the 24-year-old is a must-start in all formats.
Spencer Strider didn't win Rookie of the Year in 2022, but it's easy to argue he should've. His 11-5 record and 2.67 ERA across 131 IP were outstanding, and his ERA estimators were even better lest you think it was some kind of fluke. His xFIP was 2.30, while his xERA was 2.39. Strider gains additional fantasy value with his excellent 38.3 K%, providing comparable per-inning value to the best closers in the game at a higher volume of innings. That 38.3 K% mark is in line with his MiLB history and supported by two great offerings. First, his fastball averages 98.1 mph with a 59.8 Zone% and 12 SwStr%. Then, Strider's slider ends the PA with a 23.6 SwStr% and 38.3% chase rate. Strider's supporting cast was good enough to win 101 games last year and projects as a contender again in 2023, helping Strider add wins to his elite strikeouts and run prevention skills. There is some risk in relying on a two-pitch pitcher as a fantasy ace, but the 24-year-old Strider is more than worth his current ADP of 35.07.
