Dan Straily rocked in loss vs. Mets Saturday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(8/16/14) Cubs pitcher Dan Straily struggled in a loss Saturday, allowing seven runs (six earned) on four hits and three walks in 5 1/3 innings and striking out four in his team's 7-3 defeat against the Mets.
Straily (1-3) was making his return to the majors after last pitching in May while still a member of the A's. He gave up three runs in the second inning before running into more trouble in the sixth, when the Mets stretched the lead to 7-1. Straily owns a 5.56 ERA and 38:18 K:BB ratio in 43 2/3 innings. He isn't scheduled for another start.
Dan Straily won't be in rotation long
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(8/15/14) Cubs pitcher Dan Straily will go right back to the minors following his spot start Saturday, manager Rich Renteria told MLB.com Friday.
Straily will be promoted to start against the Mets, but will be sent back to Triple-A Iowa, where he has a 3.00 ERA since the Cubs acquired him from the A's.
Dan Straily coming up for Saturday start
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(8/14/14) Cubs pitcher Dan Straily will be promoted for a start Saturday, according to the Chicago Tribune.
Straily was acquired by the team in the Jeff Samardzija deal. He's posted a 4.06 ERA over 102 innings at Triple-A. All the Cubs starters will be pushed back a day in order to receive more rest. This is expected to be a spot-start for Straily, so the Cubs will keep the same rotation after Saturday's game.
|In a rotation full of steady-but-unspectacular types like Bartolo Colon, Jarrod Parker, A.J. Griffin and Tommy Milone, Dan Straily was supposed to provide some electricity whenever the Athletics cleared a spot for him last year. He led all minor-leaguers with 190 strikeouts in 2012, averaging 11.2 per nine innings, and compiled a 1.74 ERA over 16 starts in the heavy-hitting Pacific Coast League between 2012 and 2013. Those numbers made him out to be sort of a right-handed version of Tony Cingrani. But while he lived up to that billing in a spot start early in April, striking out 11 over 6 2/3 innings, he underwhelmed once he had a spot to call his own four weeks later, recording more than a strikeout per inning in only seven of 26 starts the rest of the way. That's not to say he did nothing right. From July 4 to the end of the season, a span of 15 starts, he compiled a 3.15 ERA and 1.26 WHIP. But in the main area where he was supposed to excel, he didn't, recording a modest 7.5 strikeouts per nine innings even then. Straily impressed the Athletics enough to have a secure role heading into 2014, but with the extent of his upside now in question, he could slide to the late rounds on Draft Day.
