Blue Jays pitcher Marcus Stroman expected to make next start
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) Toronto Blue Jays manager John Gibbons says Marcus Stroman will make his next scheduled start Monday night against Cleveland.
Stroman departed after three innings, his shortest start in three years, in the Blue Jays' 8-6 loss to the New York Yankees on Wednesday night because of tightness in his right armpit.
Selected MVP of the World Baseball Classic after helping the U.S. win its first WBC title, Stroman allowed five runs and six hits in his shortest start since the Chicago White Sox chased him after two outs on Aug. 15, 2014.
Last in the AL East, Toronto is also missing starting pitchers Aaron Sanchez (split finger nail) and J.A. Happ (elbow soreness) along with third baseman Josh Donaldson (right calf) and shortstop Troy Tulowitzki (right hamstring).
