Blue Jays pitcher Marcus Stroman developing sinker this spring
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/4/15) Blue Jays pitcher Marcus Stroman is hoping to have a better spring this year after struggling in 2014, reports MLB.com.
"I struggled all last spring, I wanted to make the team so bad," Stroman said following his debut during the Blue Jays' 4-1 win over the Pirates on Wednesday. "I feel a lot different. I feel much more relaxed, I'm focused. I know what I have to do rather than doing everything in my power to go out there and try to make the team, doing more than I had to. So I'm relaxed, I'm motivated, I'm ready to go. I'm excited for this year."
Stroman heads into the 2015 campaign looking to add another pitch, a sinker.
"I've always wanted a sinker," Stroman said. "If you can have a sinker, all hitters say that's one of the hardest pitches to hit when it's located. So it was not that I needed another pitch to make an adjustment, it was more so that I saw it as a weapon I never had that I wanted to add to my arsenal."

Marcus Stroman serving reduced suspension
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
|(9/21/14) MLB.com reports that Marcus Stroman dropped his appeal of a suspension for throwing near the head of Orioles catcher Caleb Joseph in a Sept. 15 start. The suspension was reduced from six games to five games, and he began serving it on Sunday.
Stroman will miss his next scheduled start on Thursday against the Mariners, but he will be able to start one of the games in the Blue Jays' weekend series against the Orioles.
Marcus Stroman wins one Saturday
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(9/20/14) Blue Jays pitcher Marcus Stroman turned in a strong start Saturday against the Yankees.
Stroman allowed two runs on eight hits over six innings. He struck out seven and did not allow any walks during the outing. Stroman gave up his only two runs in the third and fourth innings. Two straight singles plated a run in the third, while three singles drove in the other run in the fourth. Stroman managed to settle in over his last two innings, not giving up another run. Stroman threw 107 pitches during the outing.
Stroman improved to 11-6. He’ll take on the Mariners in his next start.
|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. 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: Like with many sophomore starting pitchers, workload could be a concern for Stroman. Between the majors and minors, he threw 166 1/3 innings in 2014, so if the Blue Jays stick to the standard 30-to-40-inning increase, he'll at least have a shot at 200 innings. That might have the greatest say in whether or not he finishes as a top-30 starting pitcher.
2015 outlook: Of course, he may regress slightly, particularly as he extends himself over the course of a season. But clearly, there's a lot to like about Stroman, a former top prospect who appears to have transitioned seamlessly to the majors. He's a mid-round sleeper worth drafting once the top 40 or so starting pitchers have gone off the board.
