Dan Straily picked up his first win of the season Wednesday in the Reds' defeat of the Giants.
Straily wasn't great, yielding three runs on six hits and two walks, but he thoroughly out-dueled Giants starter Jake Peavy. Straily is sitting on a 3.56 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, and 26/14 K/BB ratio in 30 1/3 innings (four starts, three relief appearances) this season for the Reds. He carries some matchup-to-matchup fantasy intrigue. A home start against the Pirates is next. May 4 - 3:24 PM

Dan Straily logged a quality start in Friday's loss to the Pirates, surrendering two runs on five hits over his six innings.

The right-hander punched out five on the night while issuing three free passes. The Pirates scratched out single runs in the third and fourth innings, the latter coming on a solo blast off the bat of Josh Harrison. Straily has done a nice job thus far in the Reds rotation, posting a 3.38 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 22/12 K/BB ratio across 24 innings. He'll try again to earn his first victory when he takes on the Giants on Wednesday.
Apr 29 - 10:44 PM

Dan Straily was chased before the end of the fifth inning Saturday, allowing three runs on four hits over 4 2/3 innings against the Cubs.

Straily's final line wasn't awful, but he needed 97 pitches to get to two outs in the fifth inning. He walked three and struck out five to go along with his four hits, including an Addison Russell home run, allowed. Straily owns a 3.50 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 17/9 K/BB ratio over 18 innings this year. He'll next take the hill Friday at the Pirates.
Apr 23 - 10:48 PM

Dan Straily pitched well in his first start for the Reds on Monday, holding the Rockies to one run over five innings.

He had to settle for a no-decision, as the Reds were trailing 1-0 when he exited and wound up losing 5-1. Straily yielded just two hits on the night and struck out four, but he was pitching on two days' rest so it's no surprise he was pulled after 76 pitches. The righty has certainly earned another start, which will come this weekend versus the Cubs.

Dan Straily will start for the Reds on Monday against the Rockies.

That'll push everyone else in the Reds rotation back a day. Given the current state of the Reds rotation, there's a chance Straily could stick if he continues to pitch well. The right-hander owns a 3.24 ERA, 0.84 WHIP and 8/4 K/BB ratio through 8 1/3 innings on the year.
Apr 17 - 6:30 PM

The Reds are considering moving Dan Straily into the starting rotation.

Straily has spent most of his career as a starter but he's been filling a long relief role for Cincinnati. The Reds' bullpen has been taxed in the early going, which could necessitate the need for a six-man rotation. "We’ll have to take a look at Dan Straily with the job that he’s done," said manager Bryan Price. "He’s done a really nice job managing those opportunities." If Straily does join the rotation, it might only be temporary. John Lamb (back), Anthony DeSclafani (oblique) and Homer Bailey (elbow) could all return in the next few weeks.
Apr 16 - 8:26 PM

Reds manager Bryan Price said Sunday that Dan Straily will be used as a reliever.

That would seem to mean Tim Melville is in line to start until Anthony DeSclafani (oblique) returns. Straily was claimed off waivers on Friday.
Apr 3 - 10:07 AM

Reds claimed RHP Dan Straily off waivers from the Padres.

Straily lands in his third organization in five days, as he was traded from the Astros to the Padres earlier this week before subsequently being designated for assignment. The righty should stick around with the Reds and could even fill a rotation spot until Anthony DeSclafani (oblique) is ready. At the very least, he should offer a decent bullpen arm.
Apr 1 - 1:25 PM

Padres designated RHP Dan Straily for assignment.

Straily was just acquired from the Astros earlier this week, but the Padres weren't kidding when they said he wasn't guaranteed a spot on the Opening Day roster. San Diego wouldn't mind keeping him around if he passes through waivers, but he's up for grabs now.
Apr 1 - 9:46 AM

Padres acquired RHP Dan Straily from the Astros for C Erik Kratz.

Straily has fallen off the radar over the past year or two, but he's not too far removed from being an interesting pitcher. The 27-year-old made four appearances (three starts) at the major league level last year and posted a 4.77 ERA with 9.1 K/9 and 1.8 BB/9 over 22 starts in Triple-A. He's out of options and was in the mix for a bullpen job with the Astros this spring, but the Padres could give him another look as a starter at some point. It's an interesting landing spot, at the very least.
Mar 28 - 8:22 PM

Evan Drellich of the Houston Chronicle reports that the Padres are set to acquire right-hander Dan Straily from the Astros in a deal which involves a catcher.

Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports that veteran backstop Erik Kratz will head back to the Astros. Max Stassi recently underwent hamate bone surgery, so Houston has been in the market for a backup for Jason Castro. Straily is out of options and has been competing for a spot in Houston's bullpen this spring, but the Padres could give him another look as a starter.
Mar 28 - 8:03 PM

Dan Straily started and worked four hitless innings as the Astros and Braves played to a 1-1 tie in seven innings Friday.

The game was called due to rain after the Astros tied it in the top of the seventh. Straily struck out four and walked one in his best outing of the spring. Aided by being out of options, he seems poised to be win the final spot in Houston's pen. Michael Feliz would be a more exciting choice, but it'd make sense to put him in a minor league rotation initially.
Mar 25 - 3:57 PM

Dan Straily gave up two runs and four hits in three innings Wednesday against the Tigers.

Straily's chances of making the Astros as a middle reliever are much improved with the news that Lance McCullers will go on the DL (meaning there's no longer an odd-man out in what looked to be a rotation battle). It also helps that he's out of options. Still, it's imperative that he pitch better over the rest of the month. He's given up seven runs in six innings to date.
Mar 16 - 5:01 PM

Astros recalled RHP Dan Straily from Triple-A Fresno.

Straily allowed 11 runs -- 10 earned -- over 15 1/3 innings (three starts) earlier this season with Houston. The 26-year-old right-hander will pitch in long relief.
Mon, Sep 21, 2015 01:12:00 PM

Astros optioned RHP Dan Straily to Triple-A Fresno.

Straily was designated for assignment after Tuesday's start, but the Astros put him on optional waivers and were ultimately able to keep him. He'll continue to serve as rotation depth in the minors.
