Sox Fall Again To Stroman; Beaten By Jays, 4-2

(Photo by Jim Rogash/Getty Images)Blue Jays manager John Gibbons put it well, "The kid's good". The 'kid' in question is Toronto starter Marcus Stroman—who has shut down the Red Sox twice in the last five days. Boston managed a two-out RBI double by Dustin Pedroia and a 9th inning HR by Xander Bogaerts to account for its two measly runs in a 4-2 loss. Rubby...

Stroman stellar in Blue Jays victory over Red Sox

When Marcus Stroman came to his first major-league training camp last February intent on breaking as one of the Blue Jays’ five starting pitchers, it seemed a bit of a stretch. Not even two years removed from his collegiate career at Duke University, Stroman had not yet pitched above the double-A level. Turned out Stroman didn’t make the Jays out of spring training, but by...

Red Sox’s Offense Hits New Low In Blowout Loss To Blue Jays

The Boston Red Sox broke up Marcus Stroman’s no-hit bid Thursday afternoon with no outs in the top of the seventh. And … that’s about it. Shane Victorino’s bloop single was the only hit the Red Sox managed against the rookie right-hander — or any Toronto Blue Jays pitcher, for that matter — who tossed seven scoreless innings to lead the Jays to an 8-0 victory at Rogers...

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Marcus Stroman, Disturbingly Underdiscussed

It’s kind of hard to remember that Marcus Stroman was called up this season. It was a huge deal when it happened, but there hasn’t been much noise around him since, maybe it’s because the Blue Jays have fallen off. Still, he joined a struggling rotation that was basically just being asked to not blow games, because Toronto’s offense was so good. Well, he’s been everything...

I’m talking about that of Toronto Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman. Just 24% owned in Yahoo! leagues, Stroman pitched another gem for his real world club on Saturday...

Jays need Marcus Stroman to play stopper in battle of young arms (Yankees-Blue Jays preview)

Week 13 Preview: New York Yankees vs. Toronto Blue Jays Fresh off a road trip unbefitting of a division leader the Blue Jays return home to take on the Yankees – a New York team that just swept them in the Bronx during a three game set.
