Marcus Stroman was touched up for seven runs over 5 2/3 frames in Tuesday's loss to the Rays.

Stroman surrendered a whopping 13 hits on the night and walked two in what was easily his worst outing of the season. The diminutive right-hander saw his ERA jump from 3.54 to 4.23 after the lousy effort, and he's struck out just 43 across 61 2/3 innings on the season. Stroman will try to rebound this weekend in Minnesota.

Michael Stroman was less than dominant in Wednesday's no-decision against the Giants, surrendering four runs (two earned) on eight hits over six innings.

Stroman struck out five and walked two on the afternoon. The Giants burned him for a pair of runs in the second and another pair in the fourth to account for the scoring on his line. He would have been in line for the loss, but Michael Saunders saved his bacon with a game-tying solo home run in the ninth inning. Through eight starts, the 25-year-old right-hander holds a 3.54 ERA and 1.09 WHIP. Up next on his schedule, a home date with the Rays.

Marcus Stroman yielded two runs in seven innings Friday against the Dodgers.

While Stroman took a no-decision, it was his second straight impressive outing. He struck out eight and walked a pair. The young right-hander held the Dodgers scoreless over the first six innings before giving up two runs in his final inning of work. The seventh inning has been a trouble spot for him this season. Stroman has a 3.60 ERA through seven starts and will face the Giants on the road in his next outing.

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.

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

Mar 28 - 3:57 PM

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 11 - 4:02 PM

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.
