Dodgers Players React to Ross Stripling’s Trade

Players say their goodbyes via social media.



The Dodgers are parting with one of their fan-favorites in Ross Stripling, but fans aren’t the only ones sad about it. Players took to their social media channels to thank Stripling and express talk about their friendships today. 

Clayton Kershaw was one of the pitching staff members to post a good luck message. In the post, Kershaw jokes about Stripling’s workout routine and their partnership during fantasy football season. Apparently the two pitchers did pretty well for themselves. 

Justin Turner, anther team leader, also posted a tribute to Stripling. He posted an edited video of Ross…dancing? We’re not sure exactly what to call it. In the caption, Turner talked about how much he was going to miss having Strip around. 

Corey Seager also posted his own tribute to Strip. The two players came up roughly around the same time with Stripling debuting the year after Seager. 

 

Enrique Hernandez, Dustin May, Max Muncy, Gavin Lux, and AJ Pollock all also posted this on their social media pages. The Dodgers’ social media team posted a thank you for Ross as he heads out to Toronto/Buffalo. 

Dodgers fans and players will no doubt miss having Ross in their uniform on a daily basis. He truly is one of a kind and a complete class act. Thank you for everything Ross, here’s wishing you all of the best!

  1. Stripling is a class act and such a nice guy. Dodger fans will miss him. Good luck in Toronto.

  2. Strip’s first MLB was a almost no hitter….almost being the skipper pulled him on a pitch count total and the pen couldn’t keep the no-no. His potential is good and with a good pitching coach he can excel. Good luck Strip!

    • Kid Brooklyn: “…with a good pitching coach”? Stripling had Rick Honeycutt his entire career until this year. Honeycutt was considered one of the best pitching coaches ever. Good luck, Ross!

  3. He was a niece guy but you couldn’t really count on him gave up to many curve ball HR’S the rookie Tony G will replace him easily he is more consistence on the mound and has a bright future.

  4. Stripling had issues thinking he could pitch up in the zone. Many if not all those 12 HRs he gave up this year were up in the zone and he didn’t have the stuff to survive up there.

  5. They traded the wrong guy. IMO They should of traded Wood. Ross is not a starting pitcher but with our power pitchers his stuff would be a change of pace as a long reliever when our guys can’t even get through 5 innings just saying I prefer Ross over Wood. Anyhow I hope he tears it up with the Jays but I bet you he will be relieving over thier as a starter or relieving when thier guys struggle
