Stroman Impresses Over Several Innings at Blue Jays Game

Marcus Stroman showed his confidence and glee during Saturday’s game as nothing could bring him down, not even the light jab from one of the opposing team members, Adam Jones. Stroman plays the position as the pitcher, and during one badly calculated throw, Jones decided to mock the player by trying to mimic that success shimmy that Stroman casually does.

Though despite the mocking, Stroman didn’t seem to even give it a second laugh. Especially considering how by the end of the game, he was able to get the last laugh and a chance to celebrate. By the end of Saturday’s game, Stroman pitched a total of seven innings along with three additional runs, which helped the Toronto team beat Baltimore with a 4-1 score.

The rivalry between Stroman and Jones is far from malicious. The Blue Jays player reminisce on the friendship that he and Jones have, stating that he was one of the few that constantly reached out to him after getting into the league. He continued by stating that Jones has always been there for him, and he was one of the main factors that made playing against Baltimore even more enjoyable – despite the playful mocking on the field.

While Stroman did have an impressive performance during the entirety of the game, a lack of concentration did allow for one run to go past him. Though that run was earned by Stroman’s friendly rival, Adam Jones. While the point towards Baltimore did cause a few fans to worry, the damaged was easily managed as the left fielder of the game, Teoscar Hernandez, tossed a sharp laser which managed to tag out another opposing player.

Stroman not happy with play

After the game, Stroman admitted that he personally does not feel as if playing his best, despite the win the team received. He reflected on how he seemingly left pitches and how the defence strong playing helped him in the long run. He finished his sentiment by stating that he plans on pushing himself to play harder and do better to ensure that he can start making better pitches in the next game.

While Stroman is being humble, the Toronto player did manage to strike out seven times as well hitting a batter. Which follows a lapse of missing play time for six weeks due to an injury that he has fully recovered from. The manager of the Blue Jays, John Gibbons, believes that after coming back from DL, where a player is temporarily removed due to an injury, Stroman still played a fair and goof game however his pitching didn’t seem off in the least. Stroman received even more support from fellow teammate, Devon Travis, as he stated that Stroman has fully got his fire back.

Though the playoffs are coming quickly, and teams are giving it there all to get a spot in the final games. Stroman stated that no matter what, the goal for the Blue Jays is to complete to their fullest ability and show up at each game in a good mindset.
