Dan Straily held the Nationals to two earned runs over seven innings Saturday in a no-decision.

Cincinnati didn't take the lead for good until the bottom of the eighth inning, so the win went to reliever Ross Ohlendorf. Straily pitched well, yielding only two hits and two walks while striking out three. The right-hander owns an impressive 3.34 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, and 59/29 K/BB ratio in 67 1/3 innings this season and he faces a weak A's offense at home next time out.
Jun 4 - 8:25 PM

Dan Straily didn't pitch well but got a win anyway Monday, allowing five runs across six frames in an 11-8 victory over the Rockies.

Credit Straily for hanging in there after coughing up five runs in his first three frames, as he held it together for three innings after that and watched the Reds charge back to take the lead. The righty entered the outing with a sub-3.00 ERA and we won't hold this showing against him too much. He'll get the Nationals over the weekend.
May 30 - 8:10 PM

Dan Straily fanned 11 while allowing three runs and three hits over seven innings Wednesday against the Dodgers.

Straily allowed just five batters to reach base safely in his seven innings. Unfortunately, four of those came in the same inning, leading to two runs, and the other was a homer an inning later. Straily has been a very good starter for the Reds to date, but since he's in such a bad situation in Cincinnati, there's no recommending him in mixed leagues.
May 26 - 1:23 AM

Dan Straily was handed a no-decision despite six innings of one-run ball Friday against the Mariners.

The Reds’ bullpen strikes again. Straily gave up only an RBI double to Kyle Seager over his six innings of work, but the Mariners rallied in the late innings to pull away with the win. By the way, the Reds’ bullpen now owns a 6.76 ERA for the year. As for Straily, he gave up four hits and three walks while hitting Robinson Cano twice. He has a shiny 2.85 ERA right now, but his control (23 walks in 47 1/3 innings) is a big warning sign.
May 21 - 12:16 AM

Dan Straily threw five scoreless innings in the Reds' 9-4 romp of the Phillies on Sunday.

Straily walked three and gave up six hits, but the Phillies weren't able to do much damage in high-leverage situations until later in the game. (They scored all four runs against the Cincinnati bullpen). Straily struck out six and now boasts a 2-1 record with a 3.05 ERA and 36 strikeouts over 41 1/3 innings this season. He showed promise in his Oakland days and seems to be putting it all together in Cincinnati. Though control remains somewhat of an issue.
May 15 - 5:37 PM

Dan Straily allowed two runs over six innings but settled for a no-decision in Monday's 3-2 victory over the Pirates.

Straily issued a trio of free passes, but he gave up only four hits and struck out four. Walks have been an issue for the right-hander, as he permitted 17 across 36 1/3 innings. However, he's allowed just 24 hits, keeping his WHIP at a nice 1.13 to go along with a 3.47 ERA. Straily will face the Phillies this weekend.
May 9 - 10:04 PM

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.
Apr 18 - 10:04 PM

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.
