Strop pitched a perfect seventh inning with a strikeout in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Rays to record his 20th hold of the season.

EDGE Analysis

Strop has his ERA under 3.00 and his 20 holds rank 11th in the National League. He remains a vital member of the Cubs bullpen, though he's behind Wade Davis, and possibly Carl Edwards and Justin Wilson, in the saves pecking order.

Strop (5-4) picked up the win in Sunday's game against the Cardinals. He pitched a scoreless seventh inning while allowing a hit and a walk, and striking out one.

EDGE Analysis

Strop didn't start the inning off well, as he walked the leadoff hitter and then gave up a one-out single to put runners on first and second. But he avoided trouble by forcing the next two St. Louis hitters to ground out. Strop now has a strong 3.04 ERA and 1.19 WHIP as he remains a key member of the Chicago bullpen.

Strop (4-4) picked up the win in Wednesday's 1-0 victory over the Pirates. He pitched a scoreless eighth inning with a walk and a strikeout.

EDGE Analysis

After Jose Quintana and Hector Rondon blanked the Pirates through seven innings, Strop followed suit in the eighth. He then picked up the win when the Cubs broke up the scoreless tie in the top of the ninth. Strop should continue working in high-leverage situations for Chicago the rest of the way.

Strop (3-4) blew his third save of the year and took the loss Thursday against the Reds. He gave up three earned runs on three hits and two walks in an inning of work.

EDGE Analysis

This is the second time in the last three games that Strop has given up three earned runs. The 32-year-old still has a respectable 3.44 ERA, and he posted sub-3.00 ERAs each of the last three years for the Cubs, so he's built up some equity in the bullpen. However, his walk rate is back up 3.8 per nine (the same mark he posted in 2015) after he had cut it to 2.9 last season. Strop's propensity to give up walks makes him an occasionally volatile option, despite his electric stuff.

Strop (3-3) was tagged with the loss in Tuesday's game against the Reds. He allowed one earned run on a hit and a walk over an inning of work.

EDGE Analysis

Strop entered a 0-0 game in the top of the eighth inning. After retiring the first hitter, he promptly walked Joey Votto and then gave up a single, which moved Votto to third. Votto would score on a Scooter Gennett sacrifice fly. Despite the hiccup, Strop still has a strong 2.51 ERA and 1.05 WHIP, to go along with 50 strikeouts in 46.2 innings of work.

Strop (3-2) recorded a win in Wednesday's game against the Rays. He pitched a scoreless inning with no hits or walks, and struck out one.

EDGE Analysis

Since a blowup on June 10 (three earned runs in a third of an inning), Strop has been very solid for the Cubs. In his last 11 appearances (10 innings pitched), he has a 1.80 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 14 strikeouts. Strop should continue to be a key bullpen contributor for the Cubs, but his fantasy value will remain limited in standard leagues without save opportunities.

Strop retired just one batter in Saturday's loss to the Rockies, while allowing three runs on four hits.

EDGE Analysis

The entire Chicago bullpen struggled, allowing six runs in just four innings. Strop gave up four hits in a row along with a wild pitch upon entering the game, and his ERA jumped from 2.53 to 3.74 in the process. He'll look to rebound in his next outing.

Strop (2-2) picked up the win in relief Sunday against the Cardinals. He pitched 1.2 innings without allowing a hit or a walk, and he struck out one.

EDGE Analysis

With Kyle Hendricks only going four innings, Strop and four other Chicago relievers had to pick up the slack. Strop's strong performance lowered his season ERA to 2.79, and he also has 22 strikeouts across 19.1 innings.

Strop (0-2) was tagged with the loss in Sunday's 18-inning game with the Yankees. He allowed an earned run in two innings of work while striking out one.

EDGE Analysis

Someone had to be the losing pitcher in this one, and it happened to be Strop. He wasn't hit particularly hard, as the Yankees plated the winning run on a bunt single and a fielder's choice to shortstop in the top of the 18th inning. This was the first time this season Strop pitched more than one inning, so he may be deemed unavailable Monday evening in Colorado.

Strop picked up his fifth hold of the season in Friday's loss to the Yankees. He fired a scoreless inning, allowing one hit and striking out two.

EDGE Analysis

After a slow start to the season, Strop has held the opponent scoreless in his last eight appearances, lowering his ERA to 3.72 in the process. He remains behind Wade Davis and Hector Rondon in Chicago's bullpen, but could be a decent source of holds moving forward for a strong Cubs team.
