Strahm has shown enough promise that we can keep an eye on him in the second half, but more likely than not, he will only be an occasional streamer in home games against easy opponents.

A popular preseason sleeper, Strahm quickly got discarded after allowing eight hits, three walks, and five runs in his first turn. He then posted a 2.63 ERA in nine starts before getting shelled for 28 runs in his last five starts before the break. Making matters worse, that slump contained two seven-run shellacking by the Marlins and Giants. If he can't be trusted against those listless lineups, Strahm can't be rostered in the typical mixed league.

Strahm suffered a rib strain in early June but it looks like he will only miss the minimum 10-days. Strahm pitches in a favorable environment and helps himself out by limiting walks, but he may need to start missing more bats if he wants to push his ERA much under 4.00.
