Marcus Stroman running out of steam?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/26/2014) Between Fantasy Baseball Today and the Fantasy Baseball Today blog, we've covered this topic thoroughly already, but for those who stick to the player updates, it's true: Marcus Stroman may be running out of gas.

Or steam, depending on your preferred method of propulsion. He's given up five earned runs in three of his last four starts. Prior to that, he had a 2.12 ERA in 11 starts. I, for one, am still mesmerized by his talent, but the body has its limits. Stroman's have kicked in at around 120 innings.

Well, what did you expect? He's never gone there before. And while a 30-to-40-inning increase is to be expected for a young pitcher in the early years of his career, those last few innings can be a bumpy ride.

You can read more about it and hear what CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman has to say on the matter by clicking here, but understand I'm not advising anyone to drop Stroman. He probably has another four starts in him, and he's a good enough pitcher to fight through the fatigue and reverse the momentum before his season ends. With each bad start, though, he has fewer to regain your trust. The countdown is on.


Marcus Stroman gets knocked around Friday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/22/2014) Blue Jays starter Marcus Stroman had a tough start Friday against the Rays.

Stroman allowed four runs, three earned, on 10 hits over five innings. He struck out six and walked three during the outing. The Rays slowly chipped away at Stroman each inning. An Evan Longoria solo shot started the scoring in the second inning. After a scoreless third inning, Stroman gave up a run in each of the next three frames. A walk and double brought in a run in the fourth, a double and force out brought in a run in the fifth and three singles plated a run in the sixth.

With the loss, Stroman dropped to 7-5. He’ll take on the Red Sox in his next start.


Marcus Stroman clobbered by White Sox


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/15/2014) Blue Jays pitcher Marcus Stroman couldn’t make it out of the first inning Friday. 

Stroman allowed five runs on five hits over just 2/3 of an inning. He struck out one and did not allow any walks. Stroman had a bit of a meltdown on the mound. After hitting Alexei Ramirez with a pitch, he moved up both runners on base with a balk. Stroman then proceeded to give up a run against the next four hitters. After striking out Tyler Flowers, Stroman gave up one more run-scoring single. He was pulled from the game before he could get out of the inning. Stroman threw 37 pitches.

With the loss, Stroman fell to 7-4. He’ll take on the Rays in his next start.


Marcus Stroman goes nine - but Saturday game goes 10


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/9/2014) Only a two-run double by Detroit hitting machine Victor Martinez probably prevented Blue Jays right-hander Marcus Stroman from snagging his fourth win in five decisions.

Stroman yielded the hit in the sixth inning after pitching shutout ball. He finished with a career-high nine innings pitched and four hits allowed with three walks and four strikeouts. The outing served as a bounce-back from a poor performance in his last start.

The rookie, who lowered his ERA to 3.34 with the no-decision, is set to pitch again Friday against the host White Sox.


Marcus Stroman struggles in loss vs. Astros


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

He had allowed just one earned run on 11 hits and four walks in 21 innings over his three previous starts. Stroman owns a 3.49 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 68:18 K:BB ratio in 77 1/3 innings. He's slated to take on the Tigers Saturday.


Marcus Stroman strikes out eight in win vs. Red Sox


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) Blue Jays pitcher Marcus Stroman delivered a win Tuesday, giving up just one earned run on six hits and two walks in seven innings and striking out eight in his team's 4-2 victory over the Red Sox.

Stroman (7-2) carved up the Red Sox in his last outing as well, giving up just one hit and two walks in seven scoreless innings while striking out seven. He's been fantastic in July outside of an ugly outing before the break, giving up a total of one run in four starts aside from that one poor game. Stroman owns a 3.03 ERA and 67:17 K:BB ratio in 74 1/3 innings. He'll face the Astros Sunday.


Marcus Stroman solidifies his place in Fantasy


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/24/2014) So Marcus Stroman nearly no-hit the Red Sox Thursday. True story. The Blue Jays pulled him after the seventh inning, when he allowed his first hit, but still, seven shutout innings with a strikeout per is a nice reward for his Fantasy owners.

Too bad only 46 percent of them got to enjoy it.

How can he be started in so few leagues if he entered the day with a 2.50 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 8.0 strikeouts in nine starts? It's in spite of my sincerest efforts to get the word out. He's been nothing but dominant in the role and has the pedigree to back it up, making the lack of interest astounding.

And Al Melchior likes him even more than I do, ranking him 34th among starting pitchers. You can get mad, Jered Weaver owners, or you can just go out and get Stroman while he's still affordable.

(Not that I'm saying you should give up Weaver for him, but if Al ranks him higher, that should count for something.)


Marcus Stroman toys with no-hit bid


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/24/2014) Blue Jays rookie Marcus Stroman threw six no-hit innings Thursday before Shane Victorino's bloop single leading off the seventh. Stroman went seven scoreless innings in the 8-0 victory, striking out seven and walking two and allowing no other hits.

Stroman (6-2) improved to 5-1 with a 1.54 ERA in seven home starts and lowered his overall ERA to 3.21. He's allowed no runs over his last two starts covering 14 innings. Stroman will face the Red Sox again on Tuesday at Fenway.


Marcus Stroman gets win No. 5 in shutout


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/19/2014) Blue Jays pitcher Marcus Stroman ended his three-start winless streak Saturday, as he took down the Rangers, 4-1.

Stroman bounced back from a subpar outing in his last trip to the mound, as he finished seven innings without allowing a run Sunday. He allowed just four hits and did not issue a walk, while striking out five batters on 107 pitches in the win.

Stroman improved his record to 5-2 with the win, while he lowered his ERA to 3.58 in the start. His next start is set for Thursday against the Red Sox. 


Blue Jays announce rotation plans


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/13/2014) The Blue Jays announced their pitching rotation following the All-Star break. R.A. Dickey will get the ball Friday against the Rangers and be followed by Marcus Stroman, Mark Buehrle, Drew Hutchison and J.A. Happ.

Marcus Stroman knocked around Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Blue Jays starter Marcus Stroman was blasted by the Angels Wednesday.

Stroman had a tough start, giving up five earned runs over 3 2/3 innings. He allowed eight hits and one walk. Stroman struck out four during the outing. The Angels just slowly chipped away at Stroman during the start. After a scoreless first inning, Stroman allowed two runs in the second, third and fourth frames. He technically allowed six runs, but only five were earned. Stroman was pulled after giving up a two-run shot to Kole Calhoun in the fourth inning. 

C.J. Wilson had an equally poor start, allowing Stroman to escape with a no-decision. With the All-Star Game approaching, it’s unclear when Stroman will make his next start. 


Marcus Stroman strangely overlooked


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/7/2014) Blue Jays starting pitcher Marcus Stroman is owned in only 72 percent of leagues. That's the same as Dillon Gee, who hasn't started a game since May 10 and wasn't exactly Cy Young material before then. It's 15 percent less than Wily Peralta, 12 percent less than Dan Haren, 11 percent less than Shelby Miller, 8 percent less than R.A. Dickey and 1 percent less than Hiroki Kuroda. Together, those five have combined for a 3.97 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 6.7 strikeouts per nine innings.

Upside certainly doesn't explain the descrepancy. The only one with anywhere close to Stroman's is Miller, and he hasn't actually shown his since last June. Stroman, meanwhile, has a 2.08 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 8.1 strikeouts per nine innings in seven starts, pitching at least six innings in six of them. And while that ERA is obviously too good to be true, one right around 3.00 is perfectly reasonable for what he's doing peripherally, which is perfectly in line with what he did in his minor-league career.

So what are you waiting for?


Marcus Stroman fans seven in no-decision


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/4/2014) Blue Jays pitcher Marcus Stroman tossed his best outing of the season Friday, but got nothing to show for it as the game against the Athletics went into extras.

The game headed into extra innings with a scoreless tie intact, leaving Stroman's record at 4-2. He lowered his ERA to 3.44 with the start, with his next outing set for Wednesday against the Angels.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

On the first pitch he threw, McGowan allowed a three-run home run. The hit ensured Stroman would receive a no-decision. Stroman's next start is slated to come against the Athletics.
