Straily allowed one run on three hits while striking out six over five innings in Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

He fired 64 pitches and rose to the challenge of being matched up against Justin Verlander, as Straily made his first Grapefruit League appearance since Mar. 2. He'd been getting his work in during minor league games through the early part of the spring schedule, but the 28-year-old righty should take his final couple of turns prior to Opening Day with the major league squad. Straily is coming off a career-best season, but even with a more friendly home park in Miami to pitch in, the former Red could be hard-pressed to match his 2016 numbers.

Straily gave up two hits and struck out one in a shutout inning during Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

He got the start in his spring debut for the Marlins, a further sign that Straily is ticketed for the rotation to begin the season and won't need to battle for a spot. After throwing a career-high 191.1 innings with the Reds last year, the 28-year-old will be counted on to take a regular turn for Miami, but he could have a hard time matching the career-best 14 wins, 3.76 ERA and 1.19 WHIP he also recorded in 2016.

Straily will be traded to the Marlins, pending physicals, in exchange for minor leaguers Luis Castillo, Austin Brice and Isaiah White, MLB.com's Joe Frisaro reports.

EDGE Analysis

Straily was claimed off waivers by the Reds prior to Opening Day of 2016, and he rewarded the team with a 3.76 ERA over 191.1 innings. The rebuilding Cincinnati team will flip him to Miami in a buy-low, sell-high move, gaining two of the Marlins' top-10 pitching prospects in the process. Miami will have four years of team control over the 28-year-old, who should be a staple in their rotation heading into 2017.

Straily pitched six innings, allowing three runs on six hits and two walks while striking out seven Cardinals in Thursday's no-decision.

EDGE Analysis

Straily fell short of earning his 15th victory but still notched his team-leading 20th quality start. A surprise success story for Cincinnati after being a waiver claim at the end of spring training, Straily finished with a career-high 14 wins while posting a 3.76 ERA. All 80 of the runs the right-hander allowed in a team-high 191.1 innings were earned, and the Reds went 20-11 in the games he started. Among his blemishes are the NL-leading 31 homers he gave up, 24 of which were solo shots -- including two long balls Thursday.

Straily (14-8) allowed one run on five hits, struck out five and walked two over 6.2 innings against the Brewers on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

He fell victim to the long ball again, tossing up a homer to Domingo Santana, but that was Straily's only blunder. He struck out just four, but Straily lowered his batting average against to .220, which is eighth-best in baseball. He also has a 3.74 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 154 strikeouts in 185.1 innings. Straily will make his final start Thursday against the Cardinals.

Straily's next start could get pushed to Monday against the Cubs, MLB.com's Mark Sheldon reports.

EDGE Analysis

After going eight innings in Tuesday's start, the Reds seem to be leaning toward giving him an extra day of rest and moving from Sunday to Monday. Keyvius Sampson appears to be the favorite to start Sunday against the Pirates.

Straily (12-8) threw eight brilliant innings Tuesday, allowing just two runs on three hits and a walk, striking out eight and earning the win over the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

The eight innings were a career-high for Straily, who's only blemishes were a pair of solo home runs by Keon Broxton and Jonathan Villar. The long ball has been an issue for Straily this season. Although he's limited opponents to a .219 batting average against, he's allowed 27 home runs. His ERA is 3.80 and his WHIP is 1.18. He'll look to continue his success against the Pirates on Sunday.

Straily (11-8) pitched five innings, allowing three runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out six Pirates in Thursday's loss.

EDGE Analysis

After a run of six straight victories, Straily has now dropped two of his last three starts. Furthermore, Straily pitched at least six innings in 19 of his first 24 starts this season, but has failed to get through the sixth frame in any of his most recent three outings. Despite stumbling a bit towards the finish line, the 6-foot-2 righty has enjoyed a career year in which he's set personal records for games played, innings pitched, strikeouts and wins. Straily also trying to hold on to a 3.88 ERA and 1.21 WHIP, both of which would also be career-best marks.

Straily (11-7) managed to secure the win against the Cardinals on Saturday despite issuing seven walks. He also surrendered an earned run on three hits over 5.2 innings while recording five strikeouts.

EDGE Analysis

He managed to work magic despite not being able to find the strike zone on anything remotely resembling a consistent basis, giving up only a first-inning solo shot to Jedd Gyorko. The 27-year-old's performance was encouraging in the sense that it was a significant improvement over the seven earned runs, including four homers, that he'd yielded to the Angels in his last start. Straily's control issues were a marked departure from his recent performances, as he'd given up only four walks over the 32 innings encompassing his prior six starts. Straily will try to rediscover the strike zone when he takes on the Pirates next Friday.

Straily (10-7) was rocked for seven runs on eight hits over just 2.2 innings in Monday's loss to the Angels. He walked one and struck out three.

EDGE Analysis

The culprit behind Straily's struggles was the long ball, as he gave up four homers in this shortened outing. All the momentum he had built up with nine quality starts in his previous 10 appearnaces has dissipated with this disaster. Things won't get any easier when the right-hander takes on a dangerous Cardinals offense in his next start Sunday.
