Has Spencer Strider clinched the National League Rookie of the Year award?

Harris, Strider, and the recently called up Vaughn Grissom have all made significant contributions to the 2022 club, and with each player under team control for the next several years, it will be a lot of fun to watch the Braves play every day and compete for championships.

With his success, Strider has emerged as the front-runner for the 2022 NL Rookie of the Year award. With his stats, it's easy to see why some betting sites have him as the odds-on favorite.


In terms of strikeouts (174), WHIP (0.98), and batting average against, he currently leads all qualified rookie pitchers (.179).


He also leads the league in both wins and innings pitched, with nine and 114.2, respectively. His use of the slider is crucial to his success. Strider's slider (say that ten times fast) has a 53.2% whiff rate and an xBA of.113 against batters.


Strider's main competition for the NL Rookie of the Year award may be his Braves teammate Michael Harris II. Harris has hit.298 with 14 home runs, 46 RBIs, 16 stolen bases, and an OPS+ of 137 since being called up from AA in May. He's also made some good defensive plays for Atlanta in center field.


If I had to bet, I'd say Strider has a better chance of winning the award due to his impressive pitching stats thus far. Setting a new franchise record is also significant. Regardless of who wins, Braves fans should be optimistic about the organization's future.

On June 14, 1952, Warren Spahn (Boston Braves) struck out 18 Chicago Cubs batters over 15 innings in a 3-1 loss.


Strider, who is now 9-4 with a 2.67 ERA, delivered yet another outstanding performance. This season, he has more strikeouts than Sandy Alcantara, Shane Bieber, and Justin Verlander combined.


He started 2022 in the bullpen before being promoted to the starting rotation at the end of May. Since then, he has carved out a spot in this rotation for the foreseeable future.

With yet another dominant outing last night, has Atlanta Braves pitcher Spencer Strider cemented his position as the NL Rookie of the Year?

Atlanta Braves rookie pitcher Spencer Strider mowed down the Colorado Rockies Thursday night at Truist Park, armed with his red glove and fancy mustache. He struck out 16 batters and pitched eight innings of two-hit ball without allowing a run.
