Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Friday that Marcus Stroman (knee) "might come up and start for us" with as well as his rehab is progressing.
The conventional wisdom is that Stroman would likely return in a relief role since he's missed so much time. That might still wind up being the case, but him joining the rotation isn't being ruled out. Making his way back from ACL surgery, Stroman has thrown a couple simulated games and is slated to begin a rehab assignment next week. Aug 28 - 4:42 PM

Marcus Stroman (knee) will tentatively begin his rehab assignment with Class-A Lansing on September 2.

Stroman will then join Triple-A Buffalo for a September 7 start. All that will come after the right-hander throws another simulated game on Friday after throwing 40 pitches this past Monday. Stroman has missed the entire season with a torn left ACL but could return in time to help the Jays in a potential postseason run.

Marcus Stroman (knee) reported feeling "great" after throwing a 40-pitch simulated game on Monday.

Stroman will throw another simulated game this Friday and should then be cleared to join Buffalo for a minor league rehab assignment. If he continues to progress at such a rapid pace, the young right-hander could have a legitimate shot at making some starts for the Blue Jays in September. There's also been talk of the Jays using him as a reliever. Stroman, 24, has been out all season with a torn left ACL.

Marcus Stroman (knee) will throw a 40-pitch simulated game next Monday.

The Blue Jays were previously planning for Stroman to begin a minor league rehab assignment on Friday. There hasn't been a setback, but Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos said it's just "easier to control the conditions" in a simulated game. He's expected to get stretched out to 55 pitches in another simulated game on August 29 before making his first minor league rehab start with Triple-A Buffalo. At that point, the Blue Jays will make a decision about his potential availability to the big club.
Aug 18 - 4:10 PM

The Blue Jays have tentatively scheduled the beginning of Marcus Stroman's (knee) rehab assignment for August 21.

He still has some hoops to jump through, but Stroman threw a successful bullpen session Tuesday and will throw another one on Friday. Assuming that goes well, he could be cleared for a simulated game early next week and then begin a rehab assignment. The Blue Jays plan to stretch Stroman out as a starter, although it's possible they'll wind up shifting him to the bullpen. Either way, he's made a remarkable recovery from a torn ACL, as Toronto previously didn't think he'd have a chance to return this season.

Marcus Stroman (knee) said that he felt "great" after throwing off the mound on Tuesday.

Stroman also said that his arm felt "unbelievable." These are very positive signs for the 24-year-old right-hander, who tore the ACL of his left knee in March. That his arm feels good is not an indication of the health of his knee, but given that the Blue Jays initially ruled him out for the entire season, it's impressive that Stroman's throwing at all. He could join the team in September, though that remains a long-shot. More likely, he'll continue his rehab with an eye toward 2016. The Jays plan to stretch Stroman out as a starter.

Marcus Stroman (knee) has been cleared to begin throwing off the mound.

Stroman tore the ACL in his left knee back in March. He was initially ruled out for the entire season, but has made progress in his rehab and has been cleared by doctors to resume throwing off the mound. He could see a rehab assignment within the next two weeks, though the Blue Jays have not indicated that they're considering pushing him into major league action this season. If he does return to the team, it will likely be in a relief capacity.
Aug 10 - 8:32 PM

Marcus Stroman (knee) played catch on Wednesday and is getting very close to mound work.

Stroman was ruled out for the entire 2015 season when he tore the ACL in his left knee in mid-March. He's on track to begin a rehab assignment on August 21, but it doesn't sound like the Blue Jays will give any serious consideration to using him at the major league level down the stretch. Maybe as a reliever, and that's a big maybe. The young right-handed starter should be fully ready to rock next spring.
Aug 5 - 4:27 PM

Blue Jays placed RHP Marcus Stroman on the 60-day disabled list with a torn ACL in his left knee.

Stroman will miss the entirety of the 2015 season as he recovers from the injury. In his absence, both Daniel Norris and Aaron Sanchez have golden opportunities to work in the rotation throughout the season.
Apr 5 - 4:32 PM

Marcus Stroman underwent successful reconstructive surgery on his left knee Thursday.

The procedure was performed by Dr. James Andrews. The Blue Jays haven't provided a specific timetable for Stroman, but he will miss the entire 2015 season. It's an unfortunate break for the Jays and the young right-hander.
Mar 19 - 6:51 PM

Marcus Stroman will undergo surgery Wednesday to repair a torn ACL in his left knee.

Stroman, who suffered the injury in a bunt drill last week, provided the update on his Twitter account. He's expected to miss the entire 2015 season, which is a tough break for the Blue Jays and their fans, but he still has a very promising future.
Mar 18 - 9:00 AM

Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopolous announced Tuesday that Marcus Stroman suffered a torn ACL in his left knee and will miss the 2015 season.

It's a tremendous loss for the playoff hopeful Blue Jays, as Stroman appeared poised for a breakthrough year. The young right-hander suffered the injury during a bunt drill when he felt a pop in his knee. He doesn't turn 24 until May, so he still has a bright future ahead of him, but that is some rotten luck. The Blue Jays expect to fill his spot in the rotation internally, with Marco Estrada, Daniel Norris, and Aaron Sanchez among the alternatives.
Mar 10 - 2:32 PM

Marcus Stroman pitched 2 2/3 scoreless innings against the Astros on Monday.

Stroman allowed two hits, walked two and struck out three. He's still sporting a perfect ERA this spring, though he did allow an unearned run his first time out.
Mar 9 - 4:15 PM

Marcus Stroman pitched 1 2/3 innings and allowed an unearned run and two hits Wednesday in his start versus the Pirates.

Stroman enters his sophomore campaign with high expectations, especially from the fantasy community. He does seem like a great bet to take a leap forward, but since he works in the tough AL East and pitches half of his games in a ballpark that yields plenty of homers, he might not post the ERA that some are anticipating.
Mar 4 - 4:53 PM

Marcus Stroman picked up his first career save, tossing four scoreless innings of relief in Friday's win against the Orioles.

Stroman allowed just one hit and struck out four with zero walks, finishing the final four innings after Drew Hutchison exited. He's unlikely to pitch on Saturday since he threw 44 pitches, but could contribute on Sunday if necessary. As of now, he has a 3.65 ERA with a 1.17 WHIP and a 111/28 K/BB ratio in 131 2/3 innings across 20 starts and six relief appearances. Not a bad showing for the rookie right-hander, who portends to be a big fantasy asset going forward.
