Stephen Strasburg fans 15 in win against the Padres

Stephen Strasburg was simply brilliant on Saturday against the San Diego Padres, striking out 15 batters over seven shutout innings. Four runners reached base, three times by hits and once by walk. This start dipped Strasburg's ERA to 2.94 en route to his sixth win of the year.

Fantasy Impact

Strasburg has all of the stuff to be the best pitcher in fantasy baseball. Plus velocity, nasty action on his pitches, and above average command make Strasburg an elite starting pitcher option. Injury concerns will always be the main concern with Strasburg. His 8.80 K/9 is the lowest of his career, but he is also sporting his best ERA. With more starts like tonight that strikeout rate will rise. Use with confidence in season long and DFS formats.

Stephen Strasburg tosses quality start for his fourth win

Stephen Strasburg (4-2) did just enough to pick up his fourth win of the season in an 8-4 victory over the Pirates on Tuesday. Strasburg tossed six innings while allowing three runs on four hits for his sixth quality start in eight games this season. He walked three and struck out three on 108 pitches.

Fantasy Impact

Strasburg has been solid but unspectacular so far this season with a 3.42 ERA 1.16 WHIP and 8.2 K/9 through his first eight starts. Fantasy owners are likely hoping for more from a pitcher drafted in the top 15 at the position. Strasburg's next scheduled start is on Sunday in Atlanta where he pitched seven innings of two-run ball to pick up a win earlier this season.

Stephen Strasburg gets third win in scoreless outing against Phillies

Stephen Strasburg threw 5 2/3 scoreless innings against the Phillies on Friday night, allowing five hits and four walks while striking out five. Strasburg moved to 3-1 on the year.

Fantasy Impact

Strasburg wasn't at his best, as evidenced by his four walks and 119 pitches through just 5 2/3 innings, but fantasy owners can't complain. Strasburg now has just a 2.66 ERA and is pitching as the ace fantasy owners had hoped for. He will take on the Orioles at home in his next start.

Stephen Strasburg is solid in loss to the Mets

Strasburg delivered seven quality innings only giving up three runs but still managed to pick up the loss.

Fantasy Impact

Strasburg was hurt by a lack of run support in this match. He still owns a respectable 3.09 ERA and is averaging nearly a strikeout per inning. He will look at getting back into the win column when he takes on the Phillies next weekend.
