Marcus Stroman was superb in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Rays, yielding one run on three hits over eight innings.
Well, that's one way to celebrate a birthday. Stroman turned 25 on Sunday and with the win, the birthday boy improved to 4-0 on the young season. He struck out nine against two walks, throwing 103 pitches (65 strikes) over the course of his eight innings of work. Only an Evan Longoria solo home run in the sixth inning prevented him from the shutout. With the superlative outing under his belt, Stroman will take a 3.77 ERA and 0.95 WHIP into his next scheduled start. That one will come against the Dodgers. May 1 - 3:54 PM

Marcus Stroman allowed four runs in 6 2/3 innings Monday against the White Sox.

He struck out four and walked a pair. Stroman allowed just one run over the first six innings before things unraveled for him in the seventh inning. He left with the bases loaded and all three baserunners eventually came around to score. Stroman will bring a 4.37 ERA into a start against the Rays this weekend.
Apr 25 - 11:27 PM

Marcus Stroman was charged with three runs over seven innings and picked up his third win of the season in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Orioles.

Stroman allowed a couple home runs -- a solo shot to Manny Machado in the fourth and a two-run blast to Matt Wieters in the seventh -- but was able to limit the damage otherwise. It's been a mixed bag for Stroman so far, as he's 3-0 and has a 0.99 WHIP, but his 4.13 ERA and 15/7 K/BB ratio over 28 1/3 frames are less than inspiring. He'll get the A's next.
Apr 19 - 10:22 PM

Marcus Stroman was efficient in Thursday's defeat of the Yankees, limiting them to two runs over eight innings of work.

Stroman held the Yanks to three hits and two walks, with the Yankees' runs coming on an RBI groundout and a wild pitch. He also struck out just three, trading in some flash for quick outs that allowed him to go deep into the game. It was a nice rebound after the Red Sox got to him for five runs his last time out. Stroman will carry a 4.43 ERA and 1.03 WHIP into his start Tuesday at the Orioles.
Apr 14 - 9:34 PM

Marcus Stroman was charged with five runs over 5 1/3 innings against the Red Sox on Friday.

Stroman allowed two runs over the first five innings before things fell apart in the sixth. The young right-hander gave up a leadoff double to Xander Bogaerts and walked the bases loaded before being replaced by Jesse Chavez, who surrendered a grand slam to Brock Holt. Stroman struck out four and walked three and owns a 5.40 ERA through his first two turns this season. Pitching in the AL East isn’t easy, but he remains an exciting fantasy option.
Apr 8 - 11:46 PM

Marcus Stroman pitched into the ninth inning, officially surrendering three earned runs, as the Blue Jays topped the Rays on Opening Day.

Stroman was staked to a two-run lead in the top of the first inning by the Jays' potent offense and went into cruise control from there, rattling off 15 groundouts. It's rare that you'll see a manager let his Opening Day starter throw eight-plus innings, but Stroman pulled it off on just 98 pitches (74 of which were strikes). He did give up a solo home run to Corey Dickerson in the bottom of the ninth and he then yielded a single to Desmond Jennings, who came around to score, but young Jays closer Roberto Osuna was able to close out the 5-3 victory. Stroman struck out five and issued just one walk. He'll get the Red Sox at home next.
Apr 3 - 7:03 PM

Marcus Stroman pitched four shutout innings and struck out three Monday against the Phillies.

Stroman finishes the spring with a 1.98 ERA. He'll get the Rays and Chris Archer on Sunday.
Mar 28 - 3:57 PM

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons announced Wednesday that Marcus Stroman will start Opening Day against the Rays on April 3.

It was a foregone conclusion already, but it's now official. It's also possible that Stroman will start the club's home opener against the Red Sox on April 8. Stroman returned from a torn ACL last year to make four regular season starts and three postseason starts. He has breakout potential during his first full season in the Jays' rotation.
Mar 23 - 10:34 AM

Marcus Stroman struck out four in 4 2/3 scoreless innings Friday as the Blue Jays edged the Red Sox 2-1 in 10 innings.

Stroman is getting better by the outing. He allowed two runs his first time out and one against the Astros on Sunday.
Mar 11 - 4:02 PM

Marcus Stroman struck out four while allowing one run in three innings Sunday against the Astros.

He allowed just one hit, though that was a Colby Rasmus homer. Stroman has given up three runs in five innings for the spring. He easily the best bet in the Toronto rotation for fantasy purposes this year.
Mar 6 - 4:17 PM

Marcus Stroman wasn't sharp but was good enough to win Monday, yielding four runs over 6 1/3 frames in an 11-8 ALCS Game 3 victory over the Royals.

It was a miracle that he managed to last 6 1/3 innings, as the Royals were hitting lasers off Stroman all night. He kept the ball in the park and issued only one walk, which helped him limit the damage somewhat despite allowing 11 hits. Stroman has been up and down in his three postseason outings, holding a 4.19 ERA with just 10 strikeouts over 19 1/3 innings. He's currently in line to start Game 7 should the series last that long.

Marcus Stroman yielded two runs in six innings in Game 5 of the ALDS against the Rangers on Wednesday.

Many questioned John Gibbons' decision to use David Price in relief in Game 4 rather than have him available to start in Game 5, but it ended up being a non-factor. Stroman didn't appear long for this game early on, but he rebounded and turned in a heck of an outing. The young right-hander held the Rangers to six hits and one walk while striking out four. While he didn't factor into the decision, he kept the Blue Jays alive into the late innings.

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons left open the possibility that Marcus Stroman could be used out of the bullpen for Sunday's must-win Game 3 of the ALDS.

It's all hands on deck for the Blue Jays who are facing elimination. David Price is expected to be available out of the bullpen as well. Stroman held off on throwing his regular side session on Sunday in case he is needed for a couple of hitters.

Marcus Stroman rebounded from a slow start to yield four runs – three earned – across seven frames in Friday’s loss to the Rangers.

Stroman’s defense didn’t help him as he was tagged for three runs in the first two innings, but he then cruised through the next five frames. Manager John Gibbons probably should have pulled him after the seventh, but he let Stroman start the eighth and he gave up a leadoff single to Delino DeShields and was then pulled. Texas then tied things up off of Toronto’s bullpen. Stroman could potentially start Game 5 if the Rangers go with David Price on short rest in Game 4, but that shouldn’t be on their minds at this point down 2-0.

Marcus Stroman will start Game 2 of the ALDS against the Rangers.

Stroman broke the news himself on Twitter. It's not surprising given how well he pitched down the stretch, posting a 1.67 ERA and 0.96 WHIP across four starts. The accomplishment is quite impressive given that Stroman had been ruled out for the season when he tore his ACL in spring training. David Price is getting the ball in Game 1 and Stroman will be followed by Marco Estrada in Game 3 and R.A. Dickey in Game 4, if there is one.
