I think a batting tee would strike out 5 Astros

Lets move on...

I went to the game Friday night at Safeco and was talking to Straily while he was warming up. I asked if he was Foulline from the rotoworld boards. He looked at me with kind of a befuddled look and

Less than 4IP - did he injure himself or something?

Doesn't matter I guess. Injured or not, this guy's looking like a drop.

No, he's fine. He threw almost 80 pitches in 3 1/3 innings and had almost given up another HR so Melvin yanked him.

He's rosterable in deeper leagues. But he just has back of the rotation stuff. Only one pitch, his slider, could be classified as above average. Throws a 90 MPH meat fastball, a below average change, a curve he barely throws. It's just not an impressive repertoire.

If you own him and throw him out there in favorable matchups, just keep in mind there's a chance he could get bombed because he has back of the rotation stuff. I simply have no idea how anyone could have watched this guy and taken away that he has top of the rotation stuff. He's closer to Joe Blanton from his A's days than a top of the rotation arm.

Actually, the guy who Straily reminds me of is Dave Bush. Bush had one above average pitch, his curve. Straily, it's his slider. Bush came up and posted pretty elite WHIP numbers his first few years. Fantasy owners would think, this guy has an elite WHIP, his numbers are bound to correct. But then you'd watch him and realize he would pump 88-90 MPH meat and his change was a Little League offering.

Optioned down to AAA......Has a Cy Young winner every been optioned down to the minors this late in the season w/o injury???? I kid, I kid.

Athletics optioned RHP Dan Straily to Triple-A Sacramento.

The Athletics plan to skip Straily's spot in the rotation next week, but there's a good chance that he'll be recalled after that. The 24-year-old has a 5.00 ERA over 12 starts at the major league level this season.

I doubt he sticks, just been too bad this year.

He's been more unlucky than bad.

Other than his last two starts being off he was posting elite WHIPs along with very solid K/9s. Even after his last two starts being bad his WHIP and K% currently are far too good to support a 5.00 ERA.

Right now is the time to buy low on Straily in keeper leagues.

He should dominate The Cubs today. Straily will stick in the bigs because who else does Oakland have right now? Anderson is out for another month. Straily has too much talent. If he strings together a monster July he may just push Anderson into the pen.

Another unlucky stat (or I suppose just a tid bit of information to consider) for Straily 5 of his 12 starts (of his last 10) were against teams he had already pitched against at least once and in less than a 7 week period. That is far from ideal conditions for a rookie pitcher. Seeing Texas 3 times in a month and on the road @TEX the third time, not good for any pitcher.

I think he's auditioning to keep his job today. Sonny Gray nearly got the call and is waiting in the wings.
