Stripling had a weak season, with a 5.36 ERA (79 ERA+) and a 4.3 strikeout-to-walk ratio over 22 appearances. His 2022 season was a different one, with a 128 ERA+ and a 5.55 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 134 innings with the Toronto Blue Jays. Could Stripling just have had a bad year with the Giants?

He will be joining former teammate and left-hander Alex Wood. Incidentally, Wood will now have the second-highest salary with $8.5 million.

The Athletics have the option to use him in the rotation, or in the bullpen. Stripling has experience with both roles, so he can shine in either option. Assuming, of course, that he is now performing at 100% after his injury. Many presume that his lackluster season with the Giants could be due to him recovering from his injury.
