2023 Fantasy Outlook
Strider took the baseball world by storm in the second half of 2022, going 7-2 with a 2.20 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 88:15 K:BB over his final 57.1 innings spanning 10 starts. A left oblique strain knocked him out for the final couple weeks of the regular season, but Strider returned to make a short start in the NLDS. Drafted in the fourth round by Atlanta in 2020, Strider generated a little buzz as a prospect though he didn't make the rotation initially out of spring training. He made his first career MLB start on Memorial Day and it didn't take long for him to solidify his spot among the starting five. The right-hander lights up the radar gun at 98 mph on average and his slider is a devastating swing-and-miss pitch. Strider finished as the NL Rookie of the Year runner up and earned himself a long-term deal in the process. He's already a strikeout machine at 24 years young, and if the changeup comes along, watch out. Read Past Outlooks

Starting Game 3
PAtlanta Braves
October 14, 2022
Strider (oblique) will start Game 3 of the NLDS on Friday against the Phillies, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
ANALYSIS
Strider will return to the mound for the first time since Sept. 18 following an oblique injury. It's unlikely that he'll see a full workload in the contest, but the right-hander is a welcome addition for Atlanta after having posted a 2.67 ERA and 0.99 WHIP with a 12.8 K/9 this season. As a result of Strider starting Game 3, Charlie Morton will now toe the rubber in Saturday's Game 4 matchup.
