Astros designated RHP Dan Straily for assignment.

Straily was pounded for four runs over 4 2/3 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Rangers. It's possible the right-hander could draw some interest on waivers.
Aug 5 - 2:12 PM

Dan Straily allowed four runs over 4 2/3 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Rangers.

Straily, making his first start since July 8, got through three innings unharmed before allowing four runs over his next 1 2/3 innings. He gave up six hits and walked three in total. With Mike Fiers expected to be ready to take his next turn, it's unclear when Straily will next appear. When he does, it will be with a 5.87 ERA and 1.50 WHIP.
Aug 5 - 12:41 AM

Dan Straily will start on Tuesday against the Rangers.

Mike Fiers had been slated to take the ball but was forced to make his Astros' debut in relief on Monday after Lance McCullers lasted just one-third of an inning. Straily holds a 5.06 ERA over two spot starts for the Astros this season. He'll likely make at least two starts with the big club with McCullers being sent down.
Aug 3 - 11:54 PM

Astros optioned RHP Dan Straily to Triple-A Fresno.

Straily got two turns in Houston's rotation, posting a 5.06 ERA over 10 2/3 innings. He didn't record a decision in either of his starts. The Astros are calling up outfielder LJ Hoes for the final game of the first half.
Jul 11 - 9:19 PM

Dan Straily pitched well in six innings, allowing only two runs, but left with a no-decision on Wednesday as the Astros lost to the Indians.

Straily allowed runs on ground outs in the first and fourth innings and allowed only six base runners overall on three hits, two walks, and a hit batsman. He struck out four in what was a considerably better outing than his 2015 season debut on Friday, when he allowed five runs (four earned) in 4 2/3 innings. Straily will pitch next after the All-Star break, at home versus the Rangers.
Jul 8 - 10:16 PM

Dan Straily failed to impress in earning a no-decision against the Red Sox on Friday, lasting just 4 2/3 innings and surrendering five runs (four earned).

Up 5-2 entering the fifth inning, Straily proceeded to allow three runs before being lifted with two outs. He's filling in for Scott Feldman (knee). With a 4.06 ERA and 1.38 WHIP for Triple-A Fresno over 77 2/3 innings prior to his call-up, it's hard to trust him for fantasy purposes. He'll take to the road against the Indians in his next scheduled start.
Jul 3 - 11:50 PM

Astros recalled RHP Dan Straily from Triple-A Fresno.

Straily will take the ball on Friday against the Red Sox. He owns an uninspiring 4.06 ERA and 1.38 WHIP for Fresno this season, although it's come along with a nice 70/14 K/BB ratio over 77 2/3 innings. He could get a couple starts with the big club until Scott Feldman (knee) is ready to return.
Jul 3 - 9:21 AM

Dan Straily will start for the Astros against the Red Sox on Friday.

Straily owns a 4.06 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 70/14 K/BB ratio over 77 2/3 innings with Triple-A Fresno this year. The 26-year-old will replace Brett Oberholtzer in the Astros' rotation.
Jul 1 - 10:17 PM

Astros optioned RHP Dan Straily to Triple-A Fresno.

Straily posted a 5.91 ERA, 1.59 WHIP, and 6/5 K/BB ratio across 10 2/3 innings this spring in the Grapefruit League, failing to win a spot in the Astros' starting rotation. The 26-year-old right-hander will be up in the majors at some point this season.
Mar 23 - 8:44 AM

Dan Straily allowed one run in 3 2/3 innings out of the pen Sunday against the Pirates.

Straily essentially matched Roberto Hernandez from a performance standpoint, and it's nice to see him get four strikeouts after recording just two over seven innings in his first three appearances. Still, his 5.91 ERA for the spring is the highest of the Astros' fifth-starter candidates.
Mar 22 - 4:53 PM

Dan Straily struggled through two innings versus the Pirates on Tuesday, giving up three runs and walking four.

With a 7.71 ERA and just two strikeouts in seven innings, Straily has done a lot of damage to his cause this spring. He can't be ruled out for a rotation spot, especially now with fourth starter Brett Oberholtzer's Opening Day status in some doubt, but he needs to turn it around next time out.
Mar 17 - 5:13 PM

Dan Straily allowed one run on three hits in three innings Thursday against a Tigers split-squad.

Straily told the Houston Chronicle's Jose de Jesus Ortiz that he was using a new grip on his curveball today. It's his slider and changeup that are Straily's plus pitches, and adding one more wrinkle would be nice. He's competing with Roberto Hernandez for the fifth spot in Houston's rotation.
Mar 12 - 6:30 PM

Dan Straily gave up two runs and four hits in his two innings versus the Tigers on Sunday.

Straily has a chance to get a leg up in the rotation competition with Roberto Hernandez behind, but he didn't do much to improve his case today. He seemed like a much better bet before his velocity slipped last year, but he still has a quality slider and changeup. For him, it's all about keeping the ball in the park, something that's a tougher chore in Houston than it was in Oakland.
Mar 8 - 6:00 PM

Astros acquired LHP Dan Straily and INF Luis Valbuena from the Cubs for OF Dexter Fowler.

Straily struggled in 2014 as an occasional spot-starter for the Cubs, pitching to a bloated 6.75 ERA over 52 innings. When he had a chance to pitch legitimate innings for the A's in 2013, he put up a 3.96 ERA in 152+ innings to go with a 124/55 K/BB ratio. It's not unreasonable to expect similar numbers with the Astros should Straily stick in the rotation. He should be the front-runner for the fifth starting spot heading into spring training.
