Marcus Stroman was charged with six runs on 11 hits and a walk over 4 2/3 frames in a loss to the Red Sox on Tuesday.

Stroman managed to hold Boston off the scoreboard through the first two innings, but there were runners all over the bases against the diminutive righty in this one. The Red Sox notched four hits and three runs in the third and another four hits and three runs in the fifth, with the last run being charged to Stroman after he exited. Stroman was excellent in his first two outings, so this was hopefully just a bump in the road. He’ll take on the Angels on Sunday.

Marcus Stroman pitched a complete game but allowed two runs to take the loss against the Brewers on Wednesday.

He gave up seven hits and one walk while notching four strikeouts. He made it through the full nine frames on an even 100 pitches. He gave up single runs in the second and sixth innings, the latter on a Jonathan Villar solo homer. Stroman is now 1-1 with a 1.76 ERA through two starts. He will face the Red Sox next on Tuesday at home.

Marcus Stroman showed his WBC form in Thursday's season debut, limiting the Rays to one run over 6 1/3 innings in a win.

The American hero was also hero to the Jays, who'd gotten off to an 0-2 start to the year. Stroman allowed six hits and walked two while striking out five. Those expecting Stroman to develop into a fantasy ace will likely be left waiting, but he's certainly better than his 4.37 ERA from a year ago. The 25-year-old has an interleague date with the Brewers on tap next Wednesday.

Marcus Stroman was dominant in helping the United States to down Puerto Rico 8-0 in Wednesday's World Baseball Classic finals, allowing one hit over six-plus scoreless innings.

Working with a brutally heavy sinker, Stroman turned in a dominant performance in the WBC-clincher. He did not allow a hit through his first six innings of work. Angel Pagan finally snapped the no-no with a double to lead off the seventh, after which Stroman took a well-deserved ovation on his way to the dugout. He struck out three and walked one in the big spring victory, finishing the title-clincher having thrown 73 pitches (44 for strikes). As for the coming season, the 25-year-old right-hander will look to improve upon the 4.37 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 166/54 K/BB ratio he registered in 204 innings during the 2016 campaign.

Marcus Stroman was doomed by a rough first inning on Friday, allowing four runs on eight hits over 4 2/3 innings.

Stroman walked one and struck out two on the night. The first six hitters for Puerto Rico started the game with singles, pushing four runs across and putting the United States in an early hole. Stroman was luckily able to settle in afterwards and give manager Jim Leyland some valuable innings while keeping the U.S. in the game. Danny Duffy will get the call in a must-win game against the Dominican Republic next time out.

Marcus Stroman looked sharp Saturday in the WBC, letting up just three hits over 4 2/3 shutout innings in the United States' 7-5 loss to the Dominican Republic.

Stroman was automatic for the U.S., mowing down arguably the most talented lineup in the tournament. His strikeout victims included Adrian Beltre, Carlos Santana and Blue Jays teammate Jose Bautista. Consistency has never been a word we associate with Stroman but the 5’8" right-hander has always pitched his best in big games. Unfortunately the bullpen couldn’t protect the lead on Saturday, allowing the D.R. to score seven unanswered runs over the final three innings. The U.S. needs a win against Canada on Sunday to stave off elimination.

Marcus Stroman struck out three in two perfect innings Monday against the Pirates.

Marcus Stroman won his arbitration hearing against the Blue Jays, according to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports.

Stroman will make a $3.4 million salary in 2017 rather than the $3.1 million salary offered by the Blue Jays. The 25-year-old was arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter as a Super Two player. He compiled a 4.37 ERA and 166/54 K/BB ratio over 204 innings last season. He was better in the second half and fantasy owners will hope for improved results in 2017.

Marcus Stroman said last week that his left knee feels "a lot" stronger now that he's more than a year removed from ACL surgery.

"Having a stronger landing leg? That’s a big deal," Stroman said. "It’s going to allow me to do a lot of things: velocity, go deeper into games, be more accurate. I take pride in my body and it’s at a point now where I can take some huge strides this year." Stroman posted a disappointing 4.89 ERA and 83/33 K/BB ratio over 116 innings in the first half last season, but he rebounded with a 3.68 ERA and 83/21 K/BB ratio across 88 frames in the second half while also showing improved velocity. It could have been that he slowly but surely developed more trust in his surgically-repaired knee, and it's good to hear that he now feels "unbelievable" and is ready for an "extremely large" workload following rigorous offseason training. Stroman is a bounce-back candidate in 2017.

Marcus Stroman said Friday that he will go to an arbitration hearing with the Blue Jays.

There's only a $300,000 gap between what Stroman requested ($3.4 million) and what the Jays offered ($3.1 million), but evidently there's no hope of the two sides working out an agreement prior to a hearing. Stroman, who was arbitration-eligible for the first time this offseason as a Super 2 qualifier, held a 4.37 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 166/54 K/BB ratio across 204 innings with Toronto in 2016.

As a Super-2 player, this is the first time that Stroman is eligible for arbitration. projected that he would earn $3.5 million in arbitration.

Jon Morosi of FOX Sports hears that the Rockies have shown interest in Marcus Stroman.

While the Rockies are reportedly intrigued by Stroman, Morosi relays that they would not be willing to trade Charlie Blackmon straight-up for the 25-year-old right-hander. Stroman is coming off a 2016 season in which he held a 4.37 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 166/54 K/BB ratio over 204 innings pitched. This was his first season in the bigs with more than 20 starts.

Marcus Stroman announced he will pitch for the United States in the upcoming World Baseball Classic.

It's a solid get for the United States, who should have an absolutely loaded pitching staff with Chris Archer, Jake Arrieta, Corey Kluber, Andrew Miller, Max Scherzer and Justin Verlander all on the team's preliminary roster. Stroman had a relatively disappointing year for the Jays in 2016, but impressed with a 3.28 ERA over the final two months. He led Toronto with 166 strikeouts.

Marcus Stroman was charged with four runs over 5 1/3 innings of work in Monday's ALCS Game 3 loss to the Indians.

Stroman gave up just three hits on the night, but two of them left the yard and he also walked three batters. One of the runs charged to Stroman scored after he left, as Joe Biagini yielded an RBI single in the sixth. The Blue Jays' bullpen held the Indians in check otherwise, but the Toronto bats continue to be silent. They're now one loss away from being eliminated. The Blue Jays will send Aaron Sanchez to the hill against Corey Kluber in Game 4 as they look to stay alive.
