Thoughts on Marcus Stroman?

Postby colt4523 » Sun Apr 27, 2014 2:21 pm

Looks like he is going to be called up soon. Any thoughts? Must add in an AL only league?

Lots of risk and lots of K potential. The division and park will limit his upside. I don't think he's ready but the Jays are going to give him a shot if McGowan doesn't start to impress. Must add in AL-only and deep mixed leagues. I'm staying away in my 12 team roto league.

Good stuff...5 minutes before I was going to add him yesterday, another owner beat me to him. :~(

I think must add in AL only and 14+ team leagues. I added him in a deep 12 teamer.

McGowan did well in his last start and Happ is ahead of Stroman so I don't think that his ML start is imminent.

CJ is expected back by mid-may, so it's unlikely they use him as a closer for 2 weeks.

Jays may end up going with a 6 man rotation which would hurt the potential value of every Jay starter.

I wish I had been as lucky to miss him, I grabbed him and he cost me a huge game with his 2 game 4 runs allowed in a row, but I still have not dropped him lol
