Marcus Stroman (shoulder) is scheduled to report to the Blue Jays' spring training complex in Dunedin, Florida on Thursday.

Stroman has been in shutdown mode since landing on the disabled list last week with right shoulder fatigue. This has been a lingering issue for the 27-year-old right-hander and he'll probably be brought along slowly. We wouldn't expect to see him back in the Blue Jays' rotation before mid-June.
May 15 - 5:01 PM

Blue Jays placed RHP Marcus Stroman on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to May 9, with right shoulder fatigue.

The shoulder ailment helps explain Stroman's ugly 7.71 ERA in his first seven starts this season. It's unclear how long the right-hander might be sidelined, but there doesn't appear to be concern at this point that he's dealt with structural damage. Joe Biagini or Sam Gaviglio are expected to step into the rotation in Stroman's place.
May 11 - 2:05 PM

Marcus Stroman dropped to 0-5 after allowing five runs in five innings Tuesday against the Mariners.

If there's any silver lining it's that he likely would have lost even if he had allowed just one run tonight. Stroman looked good last time out while making frequent use of his cut fastball. The strikeouts weren't there tonight, but he did get nine outs on the ground. Patience is recommended.
May 8 - 9:35 PM

Marcus Stroman scattered six hits and two runs over seven innings Wednesday in the Blue Jays’ loss to the Twins.

Stroman finished with five strikeouts and one walk over his 99 pitches. Eddie Rosario clubbed a solo home run off Stroman in the second and the Twins got to him for another run after loading the bases in the third inning. Stroman blanked Minnesota over his last four innings but didn’t get any run support as the Jays’ bats fell silent against rookie Fernando Romero. The right-hander will take an ugly 7.52 ERA into his next start Tuesday against the Mariners. He’ll be looking for his first win since September 24.
May 2 - 6:41 PM

Marcus Stroman was hit hard in Friday's loss to the Rangers, allowing six runs on eight hits over his 5 1/3 innings of work.

The right-hander struck out four on the night while walking one. Most of the damage came in the first inning, where Nomar Mazara delivered a two-run single followed by a two-run homer from Joey Gallo. Stroman has been a trainwreck through his first five starts, compiling an 8.88 ERA and 1.82 WHIP across 25 1/3 innings. Still, it's a forced hold situation in most fantasy formats. He'll try again for his first win of the season when he takes on the Twins in Minnesota on Wednesday.
Apr 27 - 10:13 PM

Marcus Stroman was clobbered in Saturday's loss to the Yankees, giving up eight runs (six earned) on five hits over 5 1/3 innings.

The right-hander also issued four walks and struck out five. He gave up a two-run homer to Aaron Judge in the third inning, and that was it against him until the Yankees broke free for seven runs in the sixth. Stroman has been a disaster this season, registering an 8.55 ERA and 1.85 WHIP through 20 innings in his first four starts. He'll try to right the ship on Friday against the Rangers.
Apr 21 - 4:04 PM

Marcus Stroman gave up four runs in five innings in a no-decision against the Indians on Friday.

Stroman gave up all four runs over the first two innings before settling in from there. He kept his team in the game and they eventually took the lead after he exited. Stroman at least showed better control in this one — two walks with first-pitch strikes to 19 out of the 26 batters he faced — but he’s now allowed at least four runs in each of his first three starts this season.
Apr 14 - 12:13 AM

Marcus Stroman allowed five earned runs, six hits and five walks over just 4 2/3 innings in a loss at Texas on Saturday.

Stroman's control was abnormally poor, as he managed to throw just 44 of his 95 pitches for strikes. That's poor control in each of his outings so far. It won't get any easier for the Toronto ace as the will face the high-octane Indians offense at Progressive Field next Friday night to open a three-game set. Fantasy owners shouldn't push the panic button just yet. As the weather warms so will Stroman.
Apr 8 - 1:40 AM

Marcus Stroman gave up four runs in his five innings of work on Sunday in a no decision against the Yankees.

Stroman allowed just three hits, but he didn't have his best control as he walked three. Fortunately, he was able to strike out eight, and outside of the command, he looked healthy after missing most of the spring with shoulder issues. We'll see him back on the mound against the Rangers next Sunday in Arlington.
Apr 1 - 4:32 PM

Marcus Stroman tossed 4 2/3 innings of one-run ball in an exhibition start Monday night against the Cardinals.

Stroman had seven groundball outs and five strikeouts over four scoreless frames when Marcell Ozuna launched a solo home run to open the top of the fifth inning. Stroman got off to a late start this spring due to inflammation in his right shoulder, but he is expected to make his regular-season debut April 1 against the Yankees. The 26-year-old right-hander posted an excellent 3.09 ERA across 201 innings in 2017.
Mar 26 - 8:39 PM

Making his spring debut, Marcus Stroman surrendered two runs -- one earned -- in 2 2/3 innings Wednesday against the Phillies.

Even though Stroman will be limited to right around six innings this spring because of shoulder soreness, the Jays are still planning to start him in the fourth game of the regular season. He's a riskier pick than he was, but the Jays wouldn't be letting him pitch if they thought he'd make things worse.
Mar 21 - 5:48 PM

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons told reporters that the tentative plan is to have Marcus Stroman (shoulder) start April 1 against the Yankees.

Stroman would likely be the Opening Day starter, but because of his inflammation in his throwing shoulder, he just made his spring debut on Saturday against the Canadian National Junior Team. Toronto hasn't made it official as of yet, but it's widely assumed that J.A. Happ will get the ball on Opening Day for the the Blue Jays.
Mar 18 - 11:43 AM

Marcus Stroman fired two scoreless innings against the Canadian National Junior Team in his spring debut on Saturday.

The right-hander looked great by all accounts. He said afterwards, "I thought it went really well. I'm ready to rock. Just progress over the next two starts and looking forward to pitching against the Yankees on Sunday." Stroman is lined up to start the third game of the regular season for the Jays.
Mar 17 - 2:07 PM

Marcus Stroman (shoulder) is scheduled to make his spring debut Saturday versus the Canadian National Junior Team.

Great news. Stroman came down with some inflammation in his right shoulder in late February, but he's been ramping things up over the last several days and could be ready for the first or second week of the regular season. J.A. Happ is expected to get the Opening Day nod for the Blue Jays.
