Blue Jays P Marcus Stroman is going back to school
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(4/24/15) Blue Jays pitcher Marcus Stroman likes to keep himself busy.
As if rehabbing a torn ACL wasn't going to take up enough time, Stroman has decided to head back to Duke to work on finishing his degree. On May 4, he'll return to campus to rehab his knee and further his studies.
"My parents pushed me from a very early age to make sure that it was all academics first," Stroman said, via MLB.com. "I was a kid who wasn't allowed out if I wasn't going to work, or I was the kid studying when everyone else was partying. That's something I always try to preach to everyone I'm around, even high school students now, I always try to gear them towards college."
Stroman played three seasons from 2010-2012 with the Blue Devils before entering the draft. The Blue Jays selected him with the 22nd overall pick, giving Duke its first-ever first-round pick in school history.
Stroman tore his ACL during spring training and decided to go back to Duke shortly after. He said he feels ahead of schedule in his recovery right now.
Stroman went 11-6 with a 3.65 ERA last season.
Blue Jays' Stroman optimistic as recovery from surgery going well
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/7/15) Blue Jays starting pitcher Marcus Stroman is targeting a late-season return, even though it is unlikely he will play this season after suffering a torn ACL in March.
“I know they’re saying I’m going to be out the whole year, but I still have hope. My thought process is I’m going to be ready for September,” Stroman said, per Sportsnet.ca. “I’m not going to rush it. I would never come back prematurely. I’m going to make sure I’m absolutely 100 percent when I come back. But I want to be back on the mound in September. That’s what I’m working towards.”
Stroman is no longer on crutches. He is walking and performing leg lifts in a pool. He has worked out on a stationary bike, as well as complete a series of body weight squats and lunges.
“I’m ahead of schedule. It’s coming along pretty quick,” Stroman said. “There’s still some pain now and then. But it’s part of the process. I’m not scared to push it. I’m not gonna push it over the limit, but I’m gonna push it to the limit.”
Miguel Castro, Roberto Osuna, Devon Travis make Blue Jays
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/5/15) The Blue Jays finalized their opening day roster, adding three players to their 40-man, in order to break camp with them on the team.
Non-roster invitees who made the team are: RHP Miguel Castro, who went 0-1 with a 2.19 ERA, RHP Roberto Osuna, who was 2-0, 2.19, and infielder Devon Travis, who hit .359.
To make room, the Jays placed pitcher Marcus Stroman on the 60-day disabled list and designated pitcher Juan Pablo Oramas for assignment.
Outfielder Michael Saunders (knee) and infielder Maicer Izturis (groin) were placed on the 15-day DL.
Blue Jays P Marcus Stroman had successful surgery on ACL
|by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com|
|(3/19/15) The Blue Jays announced that pitcher Marcus Stroman had successful surgery to repair his torn ACL on Thursday.
Stroman, 23, will still miss the 2015 season while recovering from the injury. The right-hander pitched in two games during spring training prior to getting hurt.
Blue Jays still looking for lefty for bullpen
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(3/13/15) The Blue Jays are looking for another lefthander for their bullpen, as Marcus Stroman's season-ending injury has created a ripple effect throughout the pitching staff.
Stroman's vacancy in the starting rotation will be filled by Aaron Sanchez, who was expected to share closing duties with Brett Cecil.
That means Cecil can't help with relief in the middle innings, as was the original plan when he was slated as a co-closer. Manager John Gibbons told MLB.com's Gregor Chisholm that it would be "ideal" to find another southpaw to help with the mid-innings.
Jeff Francis , signed by the team during the offseason, is a candidate. The 33-year-old posted a 5.85 ERA over 20 innings with three teams last year.
"He's a different type pitcher now, but I could see a place on this team for him. ... He's going to come out and throw strikes, and that's so valuable coming out of the bullpen," Gibbons said. "You don't want to bring in guys trying to find the strike zone. He can be tough on lefties, but he can also get righties out. I think, too, coming out of the bullpen in that role, that can extend his career another four or five years. He's a great competitor."
Colt Hynes, who went 1-4 with a 3.67 for two Triple-A teams last year, is also a candidate for the spot.
|2014 summary: Marcus Stroman's first major-league season was a wild ride. He went from blowing his opportunity to secure a rotation spot with a 13.09 ERA in spring training to struggling out of the bullpen in his initial callup in early May to thriving once he moved to the rotation in late May. His numbers in that role: a 10-6 record, 3.29 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 7.7 strikeouts per nine innings.|
Playing time status: Hold that thought. Stroman tore his ACL early in spring training and will miss all of 2015, so we'll see if he can pick up where he left off in 2016.
2015 outlook: Clearly, there's a lot to like about Stroman, a former top prospect who appears to have transitioned seamlessly to the majors, and he would have been a nice mid-round sleeper with the potential to be a top-30 starting pitcher if he had stayed healthy. But since he didn't, you can leave him for long-term keeper leagues.
