Marcus Stroman was money in Wednesday's 10-4 win over the Diamondbacks, firing eight innings of one-run ball.
Stroman struck out six without walking a batter. He scattered eight hits over his eight innings of work. The start as a whole was impressive, but perhaps most impressive was the fact that Stroman had thrown just 99 pitches by the time he took a well-deserved rest for the final frame. The superlative outing dropped his ERA from 5.15 to 4.90. In addition, he holds a 1.34 WHIP and 94/34 K/BB ratio over 128 2/3 innings. He will do battle with the Padres in his next scheduled start.

Marcus Stroman surrendered seven runs -- six earned -- and nine hits in 4 2/3 innings Friday against the A's.

Stroman has been getting a ton of grounders this year, but that didn't stop him from giving up three homers tonight. He's allowed 14 homers in 120 2/3 innings in 2016 after allowing nine in 157 2/3 innings his previous two big-league seasons. While his peripherals are quite a bit better than his 5.15 ERA, he still doesn't seem like all that great of a bet for the second half.

Marcus Stroman excelled in the Blue Jays' 4-2 win over the Royals on Wednesday, pitching eight innings of two run baseball while striking out six.

He allowed only three hits and one walk. The strong effort boosted his record to 7-4 with a 4.89 ERA. He has 83 strikeouts and 33 walks in 116 innings. Stroman does not strike out a ton of batters but as a ground ball specialist he limits home runs despite playing in a homer-friendly ballpark in Toronto.
Jul 6 - 10:10 PM

The right-hander has been highly inconsistent this season, but continues to show flashes of his dominant potential. He'll look to further improve upon his 5.08 ERA and 1.39 WHIP when he takes on the Royals at home on Wednesday.

The young right-hander has struggled badly since late May and now holds a 5.23 ERA for the year. A road start against the White Sox is next.
