Ross Stripling stumbles again in Athletics' loss

Ross Stripling endured another rough outing, allowing four earned runs on nine hits while striking out two over five innings in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Royals.

Fantasy Impact:

This performance further inflates his already bloated ERA to 5.19 and WHIP to 1.56 for the season. Stripling's inability to miss bats, evidenced by a meager 5.5 K/9 rate, combined with a high BABIP of .352, suggests that luck hasn't been on his side, but it also underscores a lack of dominance. His season record worsens to 1-8, making him a risky play in all but the deepest of fantasy leagues. Given these numbers, fantasy managers should be wary of relying on him for quality starts, as both his form and fortune are clearly off the mark this year.
