If you’re not already on the Spencer Strider hype train, it’s time to hop on. The Braves fourth-round pick from last year has done nothing but dominate in the first three outings of his pro-career and is looking like he could be a fast-riser through the system. Through two starts entering last night, the former Clemson Tiger had pitched six innings, allowing no hits or runs and striking out 17, and he continued that dominance on Tuesday, which was the longest outing of his professional career thus far.
Strider made it through 4.2 innings and surrendered his first three hits of the season (yep, it’s time to worry). Still, he prevented anybody from crossing the plate and struck out a season-high ten batters. The righty has consistently flashed high-90s heat — sometimes even hitting triple digits — to pair with a slider and changeup. It shouldn’t be long before he is promoted to Rome — the Braves high-A affiliate — and I wouldn’t be shocked if he eventually ended up in Mississippi this season.
