Blue Jays | Marcus Stroman to return next week?

Fri, 04 Sep 2015 17:26:51 -0700

If everything goes well for Toronto Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman (knee) during his rehab start for Class AAA Buffalo Monday, Sept. 7, he could make a start against the New York Yankees next weekend.

Fantasy Tip: Stroman will be limited to throwing 80 pitches during his upcoming outing for Buffalo. If he is deemed ready to return to the majors, the Blue Jays could wind up using a six-man rotation for the final three weeks of the regular season. He should be owned in AL-only and deep mixed leagues.

Blue Jays | Marcus Stroman in midseason form

Fri, 04 Sep 2015 14:41:54 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman (knee) said he is in midseason form and feels 100% healthy in his recovery from an early season knee injury.

Fantasy Tip: Stroman will make what's expected to be his final rehab start Monday, and he could rejoin the rotation after that. He was a candidate for a breakout season in 2015 before succumbing to injury, but he could make noise in a handful of starts down the stretch. Take note in deep mixed and AL-only leagues if you could use a shot in the arm for your pitching staff.

Blue Jays | One more rehab outing for Marcus Stroman

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 10:43:46 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman (knee) is expected to make one more rehab start for Class AAA Buffalo Monday, Sept. 7, after allowing just one hit and striking out seven in 4 2/3 scoreless innings for Class A Lansing Wednesday, Sept. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Stroman won't be able to make many starts once he returns to Toronto before the end of the regular season, and the Jays will likely be cautious with him, limiting his upside on FantasyScore. However, he should still be picked up immediately if he's available in AL-only formats.

Blue Jays | Marcus Stroman sharp in rehab

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 19:13:17 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman (knee) worked 4 2/3 scoreless and hitless innings for Class A Lansing in his first minor-league rehab start Wednesday, Sept. 2. He walked one and struck out seven batters.

Fantasy Tip: Stroman was expected to miss the season originally, but he has fought back hard to return in 2015. He could very well end up back in the Toronto rotation if all goes well over the next week or so, giving FantasyScore players another good starter in the final week or so of the regular season.

Blue Jays | Marcus Stroman could rejoin rotation

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 17:16:00 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman (knee) could step into the starting rotation after he is finished with his minor league rehab assignment, according to manager John Gibbons. "The way it's going now, he might come up and start for us," he said.

Fantasy Tip: Stroman threw a simulated game Friday, Aug. 28, and is scheduled to make a rehab start for Class A Lansing Wednesday, Sept. 2. He has not pitched at all this year after suffering a torn ACL in his left knee during spring training. Owners in AL-only and deep mixed leagues will want to monitor Stroman's progress but should temper their expectations due to the severity of the injury he is recovering from.

Blue Jays | Marcus Stroman ready for the next step

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 12:22:55 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman (knee) said he "crushed it" during his 51-pitch sim game Friday, Aug. 28. He is expected to throw approximately 65 to 70 pitches for low-A Lansing Wednesday, Sept. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Stroman is determined to work his way back into the Toronto rotation, but fantasy owners should be cautious pinning their hopes to the youngster. There is a chance he makes a start or two in the final weeks of the season, but he may also pitch out of the bullpen. The Blue Jays will be cautious with the youngster, and it remains a situation to monitor.

Blue Jays | Marcus Stroman set for rehab stint

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 16:33:32 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman (knee) is tentatively scheduled to join low-A Lansing Wednesday, Sept. 2, and move up to Class AAA Buffalo Monday, Sept. 7, according to general manager Alex Anthopoulos.

Fantasy Tip: Stroman will first spin a simulated game Friday, Aug. 28, as he hopes to work his way back into the starting rotation. It may be a long shot, though, as the Blue Jays will be cautious with their prized young arm. It is a situation to monitor, but don't be surprised if Stroman pitches out of the bullpen.

Blue Jays | Marcus Stroman feeling good

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 09:54:19 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman (knee) said he felt "great" after throwing a simulated game Monday, Aug. 24. He will throw another one Friday, Aug. 28, and then head to Class AAA Buffalo for some rehab starts.

Fantasy Tip: Stroman could return in September to make a handful of starts, but it's not set in stone. Keep an eye on his progress and consider adding him in deeper leagues if it looks like he'll re-enter the rotation down the stretch. He'll be a risky commodity on FantasyScore.

Blue Jays | Marcus Stroman being stretched out

Tue, 11 Aug 2015 16:21:41 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman (knee) will be stretched out as a starter as he rehabs from a left knee injury. Stroman threw off a mound for the first time Tuesday, Aug. 11, and manager John Gibbons said Stroman looked great. He'll throw another bullpen session Friday, Aug. 14, and his pace of progress will determine when he'll throw a simulated game and go on a rehab assignment, which is tentatively scheduled for Aug. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Stroman could make it back at the tail end of this year and make several starts, but it seems unlikely, and the Blue Jays won't want to rush him back in the middle of a pennant chase. You can stash him in deeper leagues, but don't expect much in return to close out 2015.

Blue Jays | Marcus Stroman cleared to throw

Mon, 10 Aug 2015 18:15:09 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman (knee) has been cleared to throw off a mound, and he could start a minor-league rehab assignment before the end of the month. He will throw off a mound Tuesday, Aug. 11, at the team's minor-league rehab facility in Florida.

Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain when Stroman will be able to return, but if he begins a rehab assignment Aug. 21, it is possible he could appear in a game in late September for the big club, especially since they're in contention and he could help.
