Marcus Stroman underwent successful reconstructive surgery on his left knee Thursday.

The procedure was performed by Dr. James Andrews. The Blue Jays haven't provided a specific timetable for Stroman, but he will miss the entire 2015 season. It's an unfortunate break for the Jays and the young right-hander.

Marcus Stroman will undergo surgery Wednesday to repair a torn ACL in his left knee.

Stroman, who suffered the injury in a bunt drill last week, provided the update on his Twitter account. He's expected to miss the entire 2015 season, which is a tough break for the Blue Jays and their fans, but he still has a very promising future.
Mar 18 - 9:00 AM

Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopolous announced Tuesday that Marcus Stroman suffered a torn ACL in his left knee and will miss the 2015 season.

It's a tremendous loss for the playoff hopeful Blue Jays, as Stroman appeared poised for a breakthrough year. The young right-hander suffered the injury during a bunt drill when he felt a pop in his knee. He doesn't turn 24 until May, so he still has a bright future ahead of him, but that is some rotten luck. The Blue Jays expect to fill his spot in the rotation internally, with Marco Estrada, Daniel Norris, and Aaron Sanchez among the alternatives.
Mar 10 - 2:32 PM

Marcus Stroman pitched 2 2/3 scoreless innings against the Astros on Monday.

Stroman allowed two hits, walked two and struck out three. He's still sporting a perfect ERA this spring, though he did allow an unearned run his first time out.
Mar 9 - 4:15 PM

Marcus Stroman pitched 1 2/3 innings and allowed an unearned run and two hits Wednesday in his start versus the Pirates.

Stroman enters his sophomore campaign with high expectations, especially from the fantasy community. He does seem like a great bet to take a leap forward, but since he works in the tough AL East and pitches half of his games in a ballpark that yields plenty of homers, he might not post the ERA that some are anticipating.
Mar 4 - 4:53 PM

Marcus Stroman picked up his first career save, tossing four scoreless innings of relief in Friday's win against the Orioles.

Stroman allowed just one hit and struck out four with zero walks, finishing the final four innings after Drew Hutchison exited. He's unlikely to pitch on Saturday since he threw 44 pitches, but could contribute on Sunday if necessary. As of now, he has a 3.65 ERA with a 1.17 WHIP and a 111/28 K/BB ratio in 131 2/3 innings across 20 starts and six relief appearances. Not a bad showing for the rookie right-hander, who portends to be a big fantasy asset going forward.

Marcus Stroman won't make another start this year.

Stroman is going to pitch out of the bullpen when he returns from suspension later this week. The 23-year-old right-hander owns a promising 11-6 record, 3.77 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and 107/28 K/BB ratio in his first 126 2/3 major league innings. He should be a big weapon for the Toronto starting rotation in 2015 and beyond.

Marcus Stroman's suspension has been reduced from six to five games.

He'll begin serving the suspension Sunday and should simply just have his next outing pushing back a day. Stroman holds a 3.77 ERA over 126 2/3 innings for the Blue Jays this season.

Marcus Stroman picked up his 11th win of the season, yielding two runs in six innings as the Blue Jays topped the Yankees 6-3 on Saturday.

The rookie scattered eight hits, striking out seven while walking none. Stroman has had a lot of positives in his first taste of the big leagues, sporting a 3.77 ERA with a 1.20 WHIP and 107/28 K/BB ratio. Stroman will finish out his season on Thursday at home against the Mariners.

Major League Baseball has suspended Marcus Stroman six games for intentionally throwing at the Orioles' Caleb Joseph during Monday's game.

Stroman has maintained his innocence and will appeal the suspension, but it was pretty clear that he did it on purpose. With expanded rosters, he could just drop the appeal after his next scheduled outing Saturday and simply get a couple extra days off between starts.

Marcus Stroman gave up five runs in six innings Monday in a loss to the Orioles.

The runs all came in the first four innings. In the sixth, Stroman threw behind the head of Orioles catcher Caleb Joseph, apparently in retaliation to an earlier incident involving Joseph and Jose Reyes. MLB has refused to suspend pitchers this year for throwing at batters before warnings were issues and Stroman wasn't ejected, so a suspension seems unlikely. Still, one imagines the Orioles won't forget what happened anytime soon.

Mark Buehrle will moved up a day to start on Sunday versus the Rays, pushing Marcus Stroman back a day to face the Orioles on Monday.

It's bad news for Stroman owners, as they lose a two-start week and also he'll now have a tougher matchup. He will have two starts next week now, though, and you can't blame the Blue Jays for giving the youngster an extra day of rest.
Fri, Sep 12, 2014 04:24:00 PM

Marcus Stroman pitched a three-hitter for his first career complete game and shutout Monday against the Cubs.

Stroman went nine innings a month ago against the Tigers, but that one was decided in extras. Stroman is now 10-5 with a 3.53 ERA, which probably would have been good enough to net him a AL Rookie of the Year award last year. He figures to be shut down a little early unless the Jays can somehow stay in wild card contention, but it's not happening yet.
Mon, Sep 8, 2014 10:04:00 PM

Marcus Stroman improved to 9-5, holding the Rays to two runs over six innings as the Blue Jays won by a 7-4 margin on Wednesday.

Stroman scattered seven hits, all singles, while walking one and striking out four in a second consecutive solid effort. The right-hander has had some ups and downs, but overall has had a decent showing in his rookie season, sitting on a 3.83 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and an 89/26 K/BB ratio. Stroman will take on the Cubs at home in an inter-league match-up on Monday.
