Toronto Blue Jays ace Marcus Stroman is poised to have a break out 2019 campaign. Its been a rough past couple of seasons for the Toronto star because of injures and such. There was a lot of hype when the “Stro Show” entered the MLB as a rookie in 2014, as a 23 year old protege. The intensity that Marcus brings to the table when he is on the mound is incredible. He was recently quoted saying that “I’m going to be special this year”.
Linked to trade talks:
In recent days and over off the season a lot of ball clubs were looking for starting pitching to boost their rotations. The Houston Astros were the most recent team looking at Marcus to make their rotation better. If he were to get traded at some point during the season he will help a team instantly. If Toronto doesn’t have the season that they have hoped for I see him getting dealt by trade deadline. Even though Stroman would prefer to stay with the Jays, it’s inevitable.
A.L. CY Young Candidate:
The CY Young award is equivalent to the M.V.P award but instead of going to the best player it goes to the best pitcher.If Stroman comes back to the right form he will be considered in the running for the CY Young award. The American League has a lot of dominant pitchers but if he’s healthy, he’ll be a top ten candidate.
Stroman can be a legitimate all star consideration if healthy. Toronto fans must be excited to see what he brings through the first half of the year. The upside that he has is tremendous. Toronto has a new manager at the helm for this season. Marcus Stroman 2019 Predictions; Win 12-15 games, ERA between 2.80 – 3.00 and about 180 strikeouts.
