Biography Timeline


On July 22, 2009, he was acquired by the Pittsburgh Pirates along with Argenis Díaz in a trade with the Red Sox in exchange for Adam LaRoche.


Strickland married Shelley Todd in November 2011. The couple had their first child, a daughter, in April 2017.


In November 2012, the Pirates added Strickland to the 40-man roster to protect him from the Rule 5 draft.


On March 27, 2013, Strickland was designated for assignment by the Pirates, and on April 2, the San Francisco Giants claimed Strickland off waivers. Strickland underwent Tommy John surgery in May and was designated for assignment in July and re-signed to a minor league contract with the Giants. He was re-added to the Giants' 40-man roster on November 20, 2013.


Strickland was called up to the majors for the first time on September 1, 2014. He pitched one scoreless inning of relief against the Colorado Rockies later that day. In the 2014 regular season, Strickland appeared in 9 games, allowing 5 hits and no runs in 7.0 innings pitched.

In Game 1 of the 2014 National League Division Series versus the Washington Nationals, Strickland entered the game with the bases loaded and two outs in the sixth inning and struck out Ian Desmond to preserve the Giants' lead. In Game 2, Strickland recorded the save in the longest (by time, tied for longest in innings) playoff game in Major League history, as the Giants defeated the Nationals 2–1 in 18 innings.

Strickland had to be physically removed from the field by teammates after exchanging several punches with Harper. He received widespread criticism for his role in starting the brawl, as sports analysts and Harper have suggested that the intentional hit-by-pitch was the result of a grudge from the two home runs by Harper against him in the 2014 National League Division Series, a series the Giants ended up winning in 4 games en route to a World Series championship. The next day, on May 30, he was suspended for six games.


Strickland started the 2015 season with the Triple-A Sacramento River Cats, posting a 1.66 ERA in 21.2 innings, before being called up on May 24, 2015.
