SP,RP - Oakland Athletics
Ross Stripling has been scratched from his scheduled start on Monday due to a minor cut in his finger.
Stripling is considered day-to-day and is expected to start "in the next couple of days." It doesn't appear to be too serious.
The San Francisco Giants have traded Ross Stripling to the Oakland Athletics for minor league IF/OF Jonah Cox.
Stripling should be in the Athletics starting rotation this season. He struggled last year to the tune of a 5.36 ERA across 22 appearances with 11 starts. He'll look to bounce back for a rebuilding Oakland team.

Stripling could be getting closer to being activated and making his return to the Giants’ roster. The veteran right-hander also voiced his frustrations with his performance this season and stated he is committed to staying with the Giants in 2024.
Ross Stripling had a decent outing on Friday, surrendering 2 earned runs on 5 hits over 5 innings of work against the Rangers.
He didn't issue any walks and struck out 3 batters, but unfortunately, it wasn't enough as the Giants fell to Texas by a score of 2-1. This performance adds to Stripling's season-long struggles, as he now has a 5.10 ERA and a 1.26 WHIP through 11 starts. Despite a solid strikeout rate of 7.2 K/9, his 5.29 FIP and 5.27 K/BB ratio suggest there is room for improvement moving forward.
