RP - CIN
Hunter Strickland got the call to close out the Reds' victory over the Giants Friday and delivered, earning his third save of the season.
Strickland pitched a relatively clean inning, allowing only a walk before closing the game out with a strikeout. With all the injuries to the Reds' bullpen, Strickland could be a short-term option for saves. His role is far from cemented, however, as evidenced by his 5.11 ERA and 1.74 WHIP.
Hunter Strickland pitched the ninth inning on Monday, striking out one on the way to picking up the save in the Reds' 5-4 win over the Diamondbacks.
Strickland picked up just his second save of the season on Monday, and he should not be considered in fantasy at the moment. The Reds reliever has a rather high ERA of 5.73 along with a WHIP of 1.86 with less than a strikeout per inning with 21 strikeouts in 22 innings pitched.
Cincinnati Reds RP Hunter Strickland pitched the ninth inning on Saturday, striking out two, and allowing four hits for three earned runs in the Reds' 10-8 loss to the Nationals.
Strickland now maintains a record of 0-2 on the season while carrying a ERA of 6.41. The Reds relief pitcher came into the ninth with a save opportunity but he ended up blowing it giving up three runs in the ninth.
Cincinnati Reds RP Hunter Strickland pitched one inning on Wednesday, striking out one, walking one, and allowing one hit for one earned run in the Reds' 4-3 win over the Cubs.
Strickland has just one save on the season and a ERA of 5.60 with a WHIP of 1.81. The Reds reliever should not be rostered at the moment as he has done nothing in relation to sustainable fantasy value.
Reds reliever Hunter Strickland allowed four runs on three hits over the course of 0.1 innings against the Guardians on Tuesday. He entered a tied ballgame in the ninth but retired just one batter and earned the loss. He gave up a two-run homer along the way. Cincinnati fell to Cleveland, 10-5.
This was a turn of events for Strickland, who threw 1.2 scoreless innings against the Braves on Saturday. It's encouraging that the Reds trusted him in a high-leverage situation, but he let them down by giving up four runs. He is not a worthwhile fantasy option.
