Marcus Stroman struck out seven batters and yielded just two runs in 6 1/3 innings to earn a 3-2 victory over the Rays on Wednesday.
It was a walk in the park through the first six frames but then he ran out of gas in the seventh. He quickly loaded the bases on two walks and a single with one out, then walked Steven Souza to force in a run before being relieved of duty having thrown 108 pitches. The strong outing improved his ERA to 2.99 and his record to 11-6. He has 131 strikeouts and 50 walks in 159 1/3 innings. Aug 16 - 11:01 PM

Marcus Stroman surrendered four runs -- all unearned -- in eight innings and was charged with a loss to the Pirates on Friday.

All four runs scored in the third inning and all four were unearned thanks to back-to-back errors committed by second baseman Rob Refsnyder. Other than that one unlucky frame Stroman was masterful if not dominant all night. He allowed just four knocks, one walk and one hit batsman while recording four strikeouts. The diminutive right-hander falls to 10-6 with a 3.00 ERA after 24 starts.

Marcus Stroman allowed three runs (two earned) on 11 hits over 6 2/3 innings while taking a no-decision in Sunday's loss to the Astros.

The Astros were squaring up the ball well against Stroman in this one, but he managed to mostly avoid run-scoring damage over the course of his 6 2/3 innings of work. All three of the runs on his line scored in the fifth inning. On the afternoon, the right-hander struck out six and walked two. He will bring a 3.17 ERA and 1.33 WHIP into a home start against the Pirates next time he takes to the mound.

Marcus Stroman surrendered four runs in seven innings Tuesday in a win over the White Sox.

Stroman and Tim Anderson were involved in a brief benches-clearing incident during the game, but nothing came from it. Stroman's win was his first in four starts since the break, though he pitched plenty well enough to win two of his previous outings. He's 10-5 with a 3.19 ERA.

Marcus Stroman issued a career-high six walks and was ejected after allowing three runs over 4 2/3 frames Thursday against the Athletics in the Blue Jays' 8-4 extra-innings win.

Stroman boasts good control, but it has abandoned him lately with 11 walks in his last two starts and 17 free passes in his previous four outings. The righty said something to home plate umpire Will Little after his sixth walk Thursday, and Little took exception and immediately ejected Stroman, who then charged toward the ump and had to be held back. Catcher Russell Martin and manager John Gibbons also got the heave-ho. Stroman has generally pitched well lately aside from the bouts of wildness, so we’re not too worried. He’ll take on the White Sox on the road in his next start.

Marcus Stroman was ejected from his start Thursday against the A's for arguing balls and strikes.

Stroman charged at home plate umpire Will Little after an iffy ball-four call in the top of the fifth inning. He had to be held back by Blue Jays catcher Russell Martin, who also got tossed from the game. Stroman had surrendered three earned runs on six hits and a season-high six walks over 4 2/3 innings. He exited stage right with Toronto trailing 3-1.

Marcus Stroman walked five and allowed five hits but limited the Indians to one run over 7 2/3 innings in a no-decision Saturday.

Stroman wasn't overly sharp, but he made it work for him, allowing a run in the fourth but nothing else. Even with the strong outing, he was in line for the loss until the eighth inning, when a Justin Smoak solo homer bailed him out. The 26-year-old is having a great season north of the border, owning a 9-5 record and 2.98 ERA through 20 starts. He's got another attractive start on deck when the Jays square off against the Athletics on Thursday.
Jul 22 - 11:32 PM

Marcus Stroman allowed three unearned runs over 6 2/3 innings versus the Red Sox on Monday.

Stroman's own error led to all three runs in the seventh and cost him the victory, though the Jays still went on to prevail 4-3. The additional rest probably did him some good, given that he was dealing with a blister and got hit hard in his final start before the break. He had a pretty good case for being an All-Star, but it was for the best that he didn't pitch in Miami.
Jul 17 - 10:46 PM

Marcus Stroman surrendered just six hits and one run over seven strong innings Saturday in the Blue Jays’ win over the Astros.

He tallied six strikeouts and issued three walks. The right-hander finished the first half in style, shutting down the league’s best lineup for his ninth win of the season. The only run he allowed came on George Springer’s RBI double in the third inning. He’s been Toronto’s most consistent starter this year, delivering an impressive 3.28 ERA across 18 starts. The former Duke Blue Devil will face Detroit after the All-Star break.
Jul 8 - 5:18 PM

Marcus Stroman (blister) threw on Thursday.

He had his last start cut short because of a blister but threw as usual on Thursday and is on track to start Saturday against Houston. Stroman leads the Blue Jays with eight wins and a 3.42 ERA this season.
Jul 6 - 10:57 PM

Marcus Stroman developed a blister during Monday's start against the Yankees.

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said that a finger on Stroman's right hand got "raw," so he pulled him from the outing before it got worse. He allowed two runs on five hits over five innings before being lifted. It doesn't sound like something that will keep Stroman from taking the ball this weekend versus the Astros, but check back later this week for an update.
Jul 3 - 11:20 PM

Marcus Stroman was saddled with his fifth loss of the season on Monday, surrendering two runs on five hits over five innings against the Yankees.

The right-hander walked two and struck out three on the night. All of the damage against him came in the first inning, where Chase Headley was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded, and Jacoby Ellsbury followed with a walk. Stroman now owns a 3.42 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 87/26 K/BB ratio on the season. He'll finish up his first half on Saturday against the Astros.
Jul 3 - 10:27 PM

Marcus Stroman hurled 7 2/3 innings of shutout baseball to beat the Orioles 4-0 on Wednesday.

He punched out eight batters and walked just one. He surrendered five base hits -- all singles -- and took advantage of an early lead to cruise through the game without much of a challenge. His record improves to 8-4 with a 3.41 ERA in 16 starts. He has 84 strikeouts and 24 walks in 100 1/3 innings of work.
Jun 28 - 10:11 PM

Marcus Stroman was roughed up by the Rangers on Thursday, yielding seven runs and three homers in four innings.

This rates as Stroman's worst start of the year. He came into this one 5-1 with a 2.55 ERA in his previous eight outings, so we wouldn't read too much into it.
Jun 22 - 6:01 PM

Marcus Stroman logged a quality start in Saturday's loss to the White Sox, surrendering three runs on six hits over his seven innings of work.

Stroman punched out five and walked one on the afternoon. His trouble stemmed from his inability to keep the ball in the yard, with Todd Frazier, Matt Davidson and Jose Abreu each blasting solo home runs against him. Now 7-3 on the season, Stroman will carry a 3.15 ERA and 1.25 WHIP into Thursday's matchup against the Rangers in Arlington.
