Free Agent Reliever Looking For Starting Role On Open Market

He had a strong 2022 season.

Pitcher Matt Strahm is reportedly exploring the free agent market for a place where he can return to the starting rotation.

According to Alex Speier of the Boston Globe, Strahm has only discussed bullpen roles with the teams that he has spoken to.
Strahm posted a 3.83 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 52 strikeouts across 44.2 innings of work this past season with the Boston Red Sox. He also converted four saves.

Strahm has not started a game since the 2019 season with the San Diego Padres, a season where he posted a 4.71 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 118 strikeouts over 114.2 innings of work and 16 starts.

Given how much more success he's had out of the bullpen, it makes sense teams would look to bring the thirty-one-year-old on in that role to begin with.
