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.
Oct 9 - 5:51 PM

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.

Marcus Stroman pitched the Blue Jays to the American League East division title Wednesday, tossing eight innings of one-run ball in a 15-2 trouncing of the Orioles in the first game of a doubleheader.

Stroman absolutely shoved, scattering five hits and two walks while striking out eight. A Steve Pearce solo homer in the seventh inning was the only blemish in the otherwise outstanding performance. It was the kind of brilliance the Jays missed most of the season with Stroman sidelined due to a torn ACL. He's now 4-0 with a 1.67 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 18/6 K/BB ratio in four starts since coming off the disabled list. We'll next see Stroman in the ALDS.
Sep 30 - 7:26 PM

Tuesday's game between the Blue Jays and Orioles has been postponed due to rain.

It will be made up as part of a doubleheader on Wednesday. Scheduled starters Marcus Stroman and Miguel Gonzalez will be pushed back a day.
Sep 29 - 6:35 PM

Marcus Stroman dominated the Yankees over seven scoreless innings in Wednesday's win.

It was the biggest start of Stroman's young career. The win helps the Blue Jays extend their AL East lead over the Yankees to 3.5 games. He scattered five hits and a walk while striking out five. Stroman has been fantastic in his last two starts and will look to keep it going next week in Baltimore against the Orioles.

Marcus Stroman was fantastic in Friday's 6-1 win over the Red Sox, allowing just one run on six hits over seven innings.

Making just his second start of the season, Stroman was on the money in Friday's takedown of the Red Sox. He scattered six hits while striking out three and walking one. Josh Rutledge managed an infield RBI single off the right-hander in the fifth inning, but the Red Sox offense failed to do much of anything beyond that. After missing most of the season rehabbing a torn ACL, the 24-year-old has allowed four runs over 12 innings in his first two starts of 2015. He'll try to repeat Friday's stellar result in next week's crucial home showdown with the Yankees next time he toes the rubber.

Making his first start of the season, Marcus Stroman allowed three runs over five innings in Saturday's 10-7 win over the Yankees.

Stroman had been on the shelf all season recovering from a torn ACL. He's made a rapid comeback from the injury, as many prognosticators assumed he wouldn't be pitching at all this season. In Saturday's win, he struck out two and walked two. All three runs on his line scored via a three-run homer by Brett Gardner in the fifth inning. Stroman posted a 3.65 ERA over 130 2/3 innings last season and is worth a fantasy flier given his talent.
Sep 12 - 10:40 PM

Blue Jays activated RHP Marcus Stroman from the 60-day disabled list.

Stroman will make his season debut on Saturday against the Yankees after completing his rehab from a torn ACL. He's a wild card because he's been out so long, but Stroman is so talented that he's worth a shot in all fantasy leagues.
Sep 11 - 12:30 PM

Marcus Stroman (knee) will make his 2015 regular-season debut Saturday against the Yankees.

The young right-hander got lit up for eight hits and four walks over just three innings Monday in a rehab start with Triple-A Buffalo, but Mark Buehrle is banged up and Stroman is the Blue Jays' best option for a big outing against the team they're battling in the American League East. Stroman suffered a torn ACL during spring training and was initially ruled out for the entire 2015 campaign. He's a great talent, but it's hard to know what to expect down the stretch.
Sep 8 - 4:32 PM

Marcus Stroman (knee) gave up four runs on eight hits and four walks over three innings Monday in a minor league rehab start with Triple-A Buffalo.

Stroman, who is working his way back from a torn ACL, threw just 44 out of 79 pitches for strikes. While the results weren't there, he said that he feels good physically. "My arm felt great, knee felt great. The results didn’t say so but my stuff felt unreal," said Stroman. "I know people are going to say, ‘oh, he didn’t have a good start.’ But stuff-wise, arm-wise, knee-wise, health-wise—I’m ready to go." Nothing is official yet, but the Blue Jays could bring him back to start Saturday in an AL East showdown against the Yankees.
Sep 8 - 9:48 AM

Marcus Stroman (knee) could rejoin the Blue Jays' rotation next Saturday against the Yankees.

Mark Buehrle is currently on tap to start the game, but he's fared poorly in his career at Yankee Stadium and the Jays wouldn't mind giving him some extra rest, anyway. Stroman could then bump Drew Hutchison from the rotation the following week. This is all assuming that Stroman's rehab start with Triple-A Buffalo on Monday goes well. His first rehab outing was terrific, as the righty struck out seven over 4 2/3 scoreless innings for Low-A Lansing last week.

Marcus Stroman (knee) struck out seven over 4 2/3 scoreless innings in a rehab start with Class-A Lansing on Wednesday.

In his first rehab start, the right-hander didn't allow a single hit before exiting. Stroman threw 69 pitches in the contest. Stroman is working his way back from ACL surgery in spring and will next throw a bullpen session Friday before making his final rehab start Monday with Triple-A Buffalo. After that, the 24-year-old could be starting games for the Jays in a pennant race.
