The Reasons Why Stephen Strasburg Is A Top-Five Pitcher In Baseball

Stephen Strasburg is a completely different and much more dominant pitcher this season. In 2015, Strasburg struggled with injuries. This led to an 11-7 record, 3.46 ERA, 155 strikeouts, 26 walks, and a 2.81 FIP in 127.1 innings. So far in 2016, Strasburg is 8-0, with a 2.79 ERA, 86 strikeouts, 18 walks, and a 2.29 FIP in 67.2 innings. Something has clicked and Strasburg is thriving in 2016.

 

Strasburg’s elite strikeout rate is what propels him to a top-five starting pitcher in fantasy baseball. He is averaging 11.44 strikeouts per nine innings in 2016. On top of his strikeout rate, he is also limiting his earned runs, but his FIP suggests that his ERA should reduce even more.

 

His mid-to-upper 90’s fastball and filthy breaking pitches are keeping hitters off balance and limiting consistent contact. From a statistical standpoint, see the link below that compares some of the top pitchers in the game and helps depict why Stephen Strasburg is a top-five pitcher in baseball:

Three Under-The-Radar Prospects Who Could Make A Big Impact In 2016

Joe Musgrove (Houston Astros; RHP): Musgrove might be considered under the radar to some, but his numbers are in a league of his own over the past year and a half. In 2015, he threw 100.2 innings, with a 1.88 ERA, 99 strikeouts, and only 8 walks between Single-A and Double-A. He started 2016 in Double-A, but quickly earned a promotion to Triple-A.

 

In his first 8 games, he has thrown 37.1 innings, with a 0.96 ERA, 42 strikeouts, and only 5 walks. These incredible statistics should speak for themselves. Based on the Astros struggles in 2016, it would not be surprising to see Musgrove promoted at some point to provide depth and a kick start to their rotation. His elite command and above average ability to strikeout batters could provide a great 2/3 option in fantasy baseball at his prime.

P- Matt Harvey (vs. Washington Nationals): $9,700. Harvey has really struggled this year, but Thursday could be the day that Harvey comes out of his slump. In 134 career at bats against Harvey, the Nationals lineup is batting .209, with only 9 RBIs, and a .271 OBP. Harvey’s price has dropped significantly due to his regression, but this could be time to buy him when he is low. Staying away from the incredibly expensive pitchers (Chris Sale, Stephen Strasburg, etc) has helped my offensive lineup for Friday.

 

P- Marco Estrada (vs. Minnesota Twins): $8,100. Estrada has been lights out in 2016. In 43.2 innings pithed, he has a 2.89 ERA, 41 strikeouts, and 18 walks. He will be facing a struggling Twins lineup on Friday, so this should be a great matchup for Estrada. In 62 career at bats versus Estrada, the Twins lineup is batting .226, with 12 strikeouts, and a .294 OBP.

P- Francisco Liriano (vs. Atlanta Braves): $10,400. Liriano is facing one of the worst teams in the league on Wednesday. Clearly, this is a great matchup for the left-hander. In 112 career at bats against Liriano, the Braves’ lineup is batting .205. The Atlanta Braves have recorded the most strikeouts versus a left-handed pitcher in 2016 by a landslide. They have struck out 125 times versus lefties, compared to the second place team, the Milwaukee Brewers, at only 105 strikeouts. This could be a great source of points for Liriano on Wednesday. Liriano is averaging 13.9 points per game on DraftKings this season.

P- Jake Odorizzi (vs. Toronto Blue Jays): $7,900. Odorizzi will be facing the 28th ranked offense in the league, which is hard to believe after the numbers the Blue Jays offense put up in 2015. In 97 career at bats against Odorizzi, the Blue Jays’ lineup is batting .134. Odorizzi is scoring an average of 12.7 points per game on DraftKings this season.
