Matt Strahm: may move to bullpen

Matt Strahm will pitch out of the bullpen through the All-Star break, and potentially through the second half of the season.

Fantasy Impact

Strahm will be available to pitch out of the bullpen this weekend, as the Padres wrap up the first half of the season. He may be the odd man out when Dinelson Lamet returns later this week, which may bump Strahm to the bullpen for the remainder of the season. Strahm pitched well as a reliever in 2018, posting a 2.05 ERA and a 28.2% strikeout rate. As a starter in 2019, Strahm has pitched to the tune of a 5.42 ERA.

Matt Strahm has another tough outing on Tuesday

Matt Strahm picked up his seventh loss of the year on Tuesday versus the Giants, allowing seven runs on 11 hits over five innings of work.

Fantasy Impact

Strahm struck out six and walked one but couldn't stop allowing hits. The southpaw has now allowed four runs or more in five straight starts. Fantasy owners should bench him for a bit to see if he figures things out.

Matt Strahm strikes out nine to earn the win

Matt Strahm improved to 3-6 on Wednesday versus Baltimore, striking out nine while allowing four runs in six innings.

Fantasy Impact

Strahm allowed five hits and didn't walk anyone as the Padres went on to win 10-5. The 27-year-old has struggled in June but was battling a rib injury earlier and today was actually a step in the right direction. Most the damage he gave up was via two homers, which will happen in Camden Yards. Strahm will be a streaming candidate next time out versus the Giants.

Matt Strahm gives up four runs versus Brewers

Matt Strahm allowed four runs on five hits in five innings of work on Wednesday versus Milwaukee, striking out two and walking one in the no-decision.

Fantasy Impact

Strahm has now given up a whopping 17 runs over his past three starts, knocking him off the fantasy streaming radar. Perhaps the 27-year-old is still dealing with a rib problem that landed him on the IL. Either way fantasy players should leave him out of your lineup for his next start versus Baltimore.

Matt Strahm gets hit hard in return from IL

Matt Strahm was pounded for six run on seven hits in 3 1/3 innings on Thursday, taking the loss versus the Rockies in Coors Field.

Fantasy Impact

Perhaps he wasn't ready to return from the injured list tonight. Strahm has now given up 13 runs over his past two starts but is known to be dealing with a rib issue. Fantasy owners should sit him assuming he makes his next start versus the Brewers.
