Dan Straily allowed three runs over six innings in a no-decision Thursday against the Cardinals.
Straily struck out seven and exited on the hook for his ninth loss, but he didn't end up factoring in the decision. The 27-year-old's season was one of the more surprising around baseball, as Straily finishes 2016 with a 14-8 record, 3.76 ERA and 1.19 WHIP in 34 games, including 31 starts. An afterthought heading into this year, Straily has put himself into position to be drafted in deeper mixed leagues next spring. Sep 29 - 11:59 PM

Dan Straily held the Brewers to one run over 6 2/3 innings in a win Saturday.

Straily yielded five hits and issued two free passes in the victory, his third in a row and 14th on the year. Anybody who said they saw this coming from the 27-year-old is a liar. Straily is now 14-8 with a 3.74 ERA and 1.18 WHIP through 33 games -- including 30 starts -- this season, and he's cemented a spot in the Reds' rotation heading into next year. Straily will make his final start of this season Thursday against the Cardinals.

Dan Straily threw eight impressive innings Tuesday, holding the Brewers to two runs in a victory.

Straily struck out eight while allowing just three hits and a walk. It was his longest outing of the year, and the win moved him to 12-8 with a 3.81 ERA and 1.18 WHIP over 172 2/3 innings on the season. His success in his age 27 season has been one of the most pleasant surprises this year, and there seems to be some legitimacy to it. With just a handful of starts left before the end of the year, Straily will look to finish strong and prove he's for real.
Sep 13 - 9:47 PM

Dan Straily went five innings and allowed three runs, all in the first inning, in Thursday's loss to the Pirates.

Straily didn't allow a homer but gave up seven hits and walked three in the pedestrian outing. It was his eighth loss of the year, but the right-hander is still 11-8 with a 3.88 ERA in 30 appearances, including 27 starts. That's mighty impressive given how little was expected of him this year, and the 27-year-old will look to get back in the win column Tuesday against the Brewers.
Sep 8 - 9:47 PM

Dan Straily had trouble throwing strikes on Saturday but picked up the win by holding the Cardinals to three hits and one run over 5 2/3 innings.

Straily recorded five strikeouts while yielding a season-high seven walks. The only run he allowed came on a solo blast by Jedd Gyorko in the first inning. It was a strange outing for the right-hander but he's certainly pitched better of late, winning five of his last six starts with a 3.98 ERA. Straily will try to make it six out of seven when he takes the mound Friday against Pittsburgh.
Sep 3 - 7:52 PM

Dan Straily was pounded for seven runs in 2 2/3 innings by the Angels on Monday.

Straily has been a pretty great stopgap for the Reds this year, but he sure didn't have it tonight, giving up four homers to the 17 batters he faced. He had gone 10 straight starts without ever giving up four runs, much less four homers. He's now 10-7 with a 3.92 ERA.
Aug 30 - 1:16 AM

Dan Straily held the Rangers off the scoreboard for six innings in Tuesday's 3-0 victory.

He surrendered just three singles and two walks while recording five strikeouts. Straily looked like he was hitting a wall in June, but he's now gone 10 straight outings without allowing more than three runs. He boasts a 2.43 ERA since the beginning of July. Straily will try to keep it going the next time out in Anaheim.
Aug 23 - 10:11 PM

Dan Straily limited the Marlins to two runs over six innings, striking out seven, in a win Thursday.

Straily gave up six hits and didn't issue a walk, with Marcell Ozuna's two-run home run in the sixth inning counting as the only damage against him. It was the seventh straight start the right-hander has allowed two runs or fewer -- he's unsurprisingly 5-0 in that span -- and Straily lowered his ERA to 3.72 in the win. The five-game winning streak has his record up to 9-6, and Straily will look to keep the streak going Tuesday against the Rangers.
Aug 18 - 11:08 PM

Dan Straily allowed 10 hits but only two runs over 5 1/3 innings in a win over the Brewers on Saturday.

The win was the fourth in a row for Straily, who hasn't allowed more than two runs in a start since July 8. Expand that threshold to three runs and Straily has a streak dating back to June 27. It's no surprise, then, that he's 8-6 with a 3.75 ERA and 1.14 WHIP in 25 appearances, including 22 starts, overall. Straily will try to keep the magic going Thursday against the Marlins.
Aug 14 - 12:26 AM

Dan Straily mostly cruised through Sunday's win over the Pirates, allowing only a pair of solo home runs over six innings.

Matt Joyce and Josh Harrison cracked solo homers off Straily in the fifth and sixth innings, respectively, but the 27-year-old right-hander otherwise kept the scoreboard clean. The only other hit he allowed over six innings was a Jung-Ho Kang single in the fifth (immediately after Joyce's homer). Straily has not allowed more than two runs in any of his last five starts. He has not allowed more than three in any of his last seven. A road date with the Brewers shows next on his schedule as he tries to keep up this fantastic midseason run.
Aug 7 - 5:11 PM

Dan Straily held the Cardinals to two runs over six frames but settled for a no-decision in Tuesday's 7-5 win.

The first dent in the scoreboard off of Straily came on an Adam Wainwright home run. He also coughed up a game-tying double to Jhonny Peralta in the sixth but pitched well overall. Straily has now notched six straight quality starts and holds a 3.80 ERA and 1.14 WHIP. Not bad for a waiver claim. He'll get the Pirates on the road this weekend.
Aug 2 - 11:55 PM

Jerry Crasnick of ESPN reports that while the Reds have received calls on Dan Straily, they appear likely to keep the right-hander rather than move him at the trade deadline.

Straily has pitched very well recently, going 2-1 with a 2.40 ERA in his last five starts. While it may be beneficial to sell him while his value is high, the Reds may believe that he has turned a corner and will be a valuable contributor in the future.
Jul 30 - 2:05 PM

Dan Straily pitched well in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Giants, surrendering one run on three hits over 7 2/3 innings.

Straily struck out five and walked one on the afternoon. He will be able to tell his grandchildren about this one, as he out-pitched potential NL Cy Young winner Madison Bumgarner in order to secure the win. The only run to score on his watch came when Conor Gillaspie rocked a solo homer to right in the bottom of the third inning. With this marvelous outing under his belt, Straily now holds a 3.84 ERA and 1.15 WHIP for the season as a whole. He will look to repeat Wednesday's result in a home start against the Cardinals next time out.
Jul 27 - 6:50 PM

Dan Straily racked up eight strikeouts over six innings of two-run ball in a victory over the Diamondbacks on Friday.

The right-hander scattered five hits and three walks on the evening. The D'Backs jumped on him with two runs in the first inning, but Straily was able to settle in beautifully afterwards, finishing his night with five shutout innings. Now 5-6 on the season, he'll look to replicate this fine effort when he does battle against the Giants in San Francisco on Wednesday.
Jul 22 - 11:28 PM

Dan Straily pitched superbly in Sunday's no-decision against the Brewers, allowing just three hits over seven scoreless innings.

Sunday's face-off between Straily and Brewers starter Zach Davies was a textbook pitcher's duel, with each starter tossing seven shutout innings. For his part, Straily struck out four and walked one. He threw 99 pitches (72 strikes) on the afternoon. Through 108 1/3 innings (17 starts in 20 appearances), the 27-year-old right-hander holds a 4.07 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 84/46 K/BB ratio. Next up on his schedule, a home date with the Diamondbacks.
