Marcus Stroman worked five innings of one-run ball Sunday in the Blue Jays' 2-1 win over the Rays.
Stroman was lifted at just 76 pitches, perhaps due to that lingering blister on his right middle finger. He was efficient and effective while he was on the bump, scattering five hits and a walk over his five frames while striking out two a no-decision. The 27-year-old right-hander lowered his season ERA from 5.20 to 5.03. Aug 12 - 3:47 PM

Marcus Stroman (finger) was cleared to make his scheduled start Sunday against the Rays.

A blister on his right middle finger forced him to leave his start Tuesday against the Red Sox, but he won't have to miss a turn, Jays manager John Gibbons said Saturday. The blister issue is one he's dealt with all season, though, so there still exists some risk he'll have to cut this start short as well, and that it could affect future turns. Stroman has a 5.20 ERA through 16 starts overall.

Marcus Stroman (finger) said he doesn't expect to miss his next turn in the Blue Jays' rotation.

Stroman was pulled from his start Tuesday night against the Red Sox after a blister opened up on his right middle finger while he threw warmup pitches before the top of the eighth inning. He wound up allowing just one unearned run on two hits and three walks over seven innings against the best offense in baseball and told reporters after the game that he's confident he can manage the blister.

Marcus Stroman was pulled from Tuesday's start against the Red Sox due to a right middle finger blister.

Stroman warmed up before the eighth inning but was checked by the trainer and eventually lifted. He was charged with just one unearned run over his seven frames before being pulled. Stroman walked three, which was just the second time in his last 12 starts that he’s issued that many free passes. However, the Red Sox managed just two hits on the night against the right-hander. Unfortunately for Stroman, reliever Ryan Tepera melted down and cost the starter a win. Stroman is slated to face the Rays at home on Sunday if his finger allows him, but we’ll have to check on his status later this week.

Marcus Stroman was roughed up for seven runs across five-plus innings of work Wednesday in Oakland.

Stroman walked just one batter and struck out six, but he yielded a season-high 11 hits. The right-hander had entered this start on a nice little roll, but obviously he took a step backward against the red-hot A's. Things aren't going to get easier, as he's slated to face the Red Sox at Rogers Centre in his next outing.
Aug 1 - 6:59 PM

Marcus Stroman yielded two runs over 6 2/3 innings in a 10-5 victory over the White Sox on Friday.

Working with the benefit of a big lead, Stroman held the White Sox to just one run over the first six innings before running out of gas in the seventh, right around where he hit 100 pitches. After retiring the first two batters, he gave up a triple to Nicky Delmonico and a run-scoring ground rule double to Adam Engel. Blue Jays manager John Gibbons brought the hook from there, but it was still a fine outing from Stroman, who fanned three batters while walking just one. You wouldn’t know it by his 5.20 ERA for the year, but Stroman actually has a 2.98 ERA in seven starts since returning from the disabled list.

Jon Morosi of reports that the Braves have discussed a Marcus Stroman trade with the Blue Jays.

Morosi, notes, however that "there's no evidence of progress in those negotiations." Jon Heyman of Fancred wrote earlier this week that the Jays are inclined to keep Stroman because he's having a rough year and is under control through 2020. They can shop him again this winter if he finishes strong down the stretch.
Jul 26 - 2:52 PM

According to Jon Heyman of Fancred, "several teams have checked in" on Blue Jays starter Marcus Stroman.

Heyman adds, however, that the "strong belief" is that the Blue Jays will decide to hold on to the 27-year-old right-hander, who is under club control through 2020. Stroman is having a down season, with a 5.42 ERA and 1.45 WHIP in 73 innings, and that would obviously hurt Toronto's potential return. He could be a better trade chip for the Jays next summer.
Jul 24 - 8:56 PM

Marcus Stroman let in just one run over seven innings and was credited with a win over the Orioles on Saturday.

He stumbled a little bit in the first inning and allowed one run on three hits in the frame, but then rattled off another six innings of scoreless baseball to snare his third win of the season. He struck out seven, walked two and yielded just five total hits to register one of his best starts of the season. If only he could face the impotent Orioles' lineup every game. He improves to 3-7 with a 5.42 ERA and 1.45 WHIP in 13 starts. He has 59 strikeouts and 28 walks in 73 innings. He draws another good matchup against the White Sox on Friday.
Jul 21 - 5:20 PM

Marcus Stroman was charged with four runs – three earned – over just five innings of work in Sunday’s loss to the Red Sox.

Stroman served up a solo home run to Xander Bogaerts in the first inning and gave up five hits overall along with a walk. The right-hander needed 95 pitches to cover his five frames. Stroman has been hit-or-miss since his return from the disabled list, mixing in three good outings with a couple clunkers. He’ll conclude the first half with a disappointing 5.86 ERA over 12 starts for the Blue Jays.
Jul 15 - 4:43 PM

Marcus Stroman held the Braves to one run over seven innings in the Blue Jays’ 6-2 victory Tuesday.

Stroman and Julio Teheran were locked in a pitcher’s duel for most of the night until the Jays broke things open against the Braves’ bullpen. The diminutive right-hander allowed six singles and two walks while whiffing five. He’s pitched well in three of four outings since returning from the disabled list, although he has mixed in one clunker. Stroman will have a tough final first-half start in Boston on Sunday.
Jul 10 - 10:56 PM

Marcus Stroman was pummeled for six runs in 4 2/3 innings and was charged with a loss to the Mets on Wednesday.

He registered only two strikeouts against four walks and six base hits, including a two-run homer by third baseman Todd Frazier. It's been a miserable season for the Blue Jays' hurler, he missed six weeks on the disabled list with a shoulder injury and even when he's been healthy enough to pitch he hasn't been any good at all. He falls to 1-6 with a woeful 6.50 ERA and 1.57 WHIP in 10 starts.
Jul 4 - 10:09 PM

Marcus Stroman delivered his second straight strong start on Friday, firing seven innings of two-run ball in a victory over the Tigers.

The right-hander scattered just five hits on the night while striking out four. He showed impeccable command, throwing 65 of his 90 pitches for strikes and didn't walk a batter. The Tigers scratched out a run against him in the second inning and added a second run on a solo shot by Jeimer Candelario in the seventh, but their offense was shut down otherwise. If fantasy owners gave up on him after his early-season struggles, now is the time to pounce prior to Wednesday's matchup against the Mets.
Jun 29 - 9:44 PM

Marcus Stroman blanked the Angels for five innings Saturday in his return from the disabled list.

Stroman scattered six hits, all of which were singles, and walked just one. He struck out five and got seven outs on the ground. It was definitely an encouraging first outing back after a six-week absence due to shoulder fatigue, and he should be worth using in mixed leagues with the Tigers next on the schedule.
Jun 24 - 12:37 AM

Blue Jays activated RHP Marcus Stroman from the 10-day disabled list.

Stroman (shoulder) will make his first start since May 8 on Saturday night against the Angels.
