Atlanta Braves RHP Spencer Strider on 15-day IL for strained oblique

The Atlanta Braves have put right-hander Spencer Strider on the 15-day injury list with a strained left oblique muscle.

The move is retroactive to September 21, and Strider hasn’t called in since last Sunday. After that 5-2 win over the Philadelphia Phillies, Strider told the team he didn’t feel right. The Braves said Tuesday they would delay Strider’s next start in hopes of avoiding a trip to the IL.

Strider excelled in his first full season with Atlanta, going 11-5 with a 2.67 ERA and 202 strikeouts in 31 games (20 starts). He has recorded 10 or more strikeouts in a game six times this season, including twice this month — 16 against the Colorado Rockies on Sept. 1 and 10 on his last starting Sunday against the Phillies.

Strider broke the record for fastest with 200 strikeouts in a single season, in 130 innings, two-thirds of an innings faster than Hall of Famer Randy Johnson in 2001.

Atlanta comes into action on Saturday after losing three straight games and is 2½ games behind the New York Mets for first place in the NL East.
