Marcus Stroman has bounced back from the worst season of his career in a very nice way. The 28-year-old owns a 3.18 ERA to go with 81 strikeouts over 104.2 innings of work and he was named to the AL All-Star team for the first time in his career.
Over the years Stroman has become a face of the franchise and a fan favourite, but despite being in the midst of an impressive comeback season he doesn’t believe he’s in the Blue Jays’ long-term plans anymore. Ahead of his first MLB All-Star Game, Stroman joined TSN’s Scott Mitchell and explained why he wouldn’t sign a long-term deal in Toronto if front office extended it to him at this point and why he’s accepted he likely won’t be a Blue Jay much longer.
Stroman believes he won’t be a Blue Jay for very much longer and also stated that he wouldn’t sign a long-term deal in Toronto right now considering he doesn’t think he’s in the front office’s plans moving forward, despite all the love he has for the city of Toronto and Canada as a whole.
Stroman has put together a pretty impressive career together with the Blue Jays over six years as he owns a 46-43 record and a .381 ERA to go with 617 strikeouts over 769.2 innings of work.
