Blue Jays | Marcus Stroman ready to be ace

Wed, 20 Jan 2016 12:19:22 -0800

Toronto Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman (knee) will likely be the team's opening day starter this year, and he feels that he's ready to take the next step after missing most of the 2015 season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. "I feel like I'm ready to step into that role and be the guy," said Stroman, who has been working out every day this offseason. "I feel like I prepare and work to be that guy, and I'm excited to be in that role."

Fantasy Tip: Stroman showed off his work ethic with a miraculous recovery last season and was able to post a 1.67 ERA in four regular season starts in September. After an 11-win, 3.65-ERA 2014, we already know that Stroman has it in him to be a big fantasy contributor. How well will he bounce back in a full season? It's worth it to find out as your No. 3 starter.

Blue Jays | Toronto announces ALCS rotation

Thu, 15 Oct 2015 14:31:02 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SPs Marco Estrada, David Price, Marcus Stroman and R.A. Dickey will start Games 1 through 4 in the American League Championship Series against the Kansas City Royals, which begins Friday, Oct. 16.

Fantasy Tip: The Toronto rotation isn't a huge shock considering their usage of their starters in the American League Division Series. Estrada checks out a potential No. 2 pitcher option for FantasyScore contests, but you'll want to see the entire player pool before locking in your lineups.

Blue Jays | Marcus Stroman hurls quality start

Wed, 14 Oct 2015 17:26:15 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman allowed two runs on six hits over six innings in a no-decision against the Texas Rangers in Game 5 of the American League Division Series Wednesday, Oct. 14, with one walk and four strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Stroman ($7,600, 15.2% of cap) proved that he could handle the bright spotlight of the playoffs, posting a 3.46 ERA in two starts versus the Rangers during the ALDS. He will make a decent pitching option in FantasyScore in the ALCS, regardless of whether the Jays face Houston or Kansas City.

Blue Jays | Marcus Stroman set for Game 5

Mon, 12 Oct 2015 16:49:52 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman will start in Game 5 of the division series against the Texas Rangers Wednesday, Oct. 14, manager John Gibbons confirmed.

Fantasy Tip: Stroman ($7,600, 15.2% of cap) wasn't bad but wasn't great in his start earlier in the series, allowing four runs (three earned) on five hits in seven innings against the Rangers. For a guy with only four starts in the regular season due to injury, it's tough to put your money on him in a winner-take-all playoff game on FantasyScore.

Blue Jays | Marcus Stroman throws seven innings

Fri, 09 Oct 2015 18:01:12 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman allowed four runs (three earned) on five hits over seven innings in a no-decision against the Texas Rangers in Game 2 of the American League Division Series Friday, Oct. 9, with two walks and five strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Stroman ($7,600, 15.2% of cap) carried a 4-3 lead into the eighth inning of his first postseason start but the bullpen was unable to hold the lead after he exited the game with the tying run on base. He is unlikely to start again in this series but is worth considering for FantasyScore lineups if the Jays advance to the ALCS.

Blue Jays | Marcus Stroman to start Game 2

Tue, 06 Oct 2015 13:42:31 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman will start in Game 2 of the division series against the Texas Rangers Friday, Oct. 9. SPs Marco Estrada and R.A. Dickey will pitch in Games 3 and 4, and it's unknown who will start Game 3.

Fantasy Tip: It's a miraculous accomplishment for a pitcher that tore the ACL in his knee earlier this year. The risk surrounding Stroman ($7,800, 15.6% of cap) is clear, as he's made only four starts this season, although the results were very encouraging with five runs allowed and 18 strikeouts in 27 innings last month. He's also extremely fresh, making him a risk/reward selection in the divisional round.

Blue Jays | Marcus Stroman battling flu

Thu, 17 Sep 2015 17:20:37 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman (illness) is expected to be healthy enough to make his scheduled start against the Boston Red Sox Friday, Sept. 18, even though he has been battling the flu this week, according to manager John Gibbons.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore owners may want to err on the side of caution and avoid using Stroman ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) until he is completely healthy.
