It wasn't Stroman's most efficient effort as he needed 103 pitches to get through 5.2 innings, but the Toronto bats gave him all the run support he needed to pick up the win. The 26-year-old also helped his own cause with an opposite-field solo shot in the fourth inning. Stroman looks to be finding his groove, as he has a 1.02 ERA in his last 17.2 innings pitched. He'll toe the rubber again on Wednesday at Milwaukee.

It was a sharp performance for Stroman, but his offense couldn't get it going until after his departure. This was his second straight quality start after being tagged by the Yankees on May 3, a promising sign for fantasy owners who have been frustrated by the 26-year-old's inconsistency. Stroman lowered his ERA to a respectable 3.33 after this latest outing. He will look to keep the momentum going Thursday at Atlanta.

Stroman didn't have his strikeout pitch working in this one, but he induced weak contact regularly and allowed just four men past first base. It was a nice bounce-back performance for Stroman as well as his fantasy owners after he was hit hard in his previous start, and his ERA has returned to a solid 3.38 after his latest display. Though the possibility of an occasional erratic outing still exists, the 26-year-old remains extremely effective when he is on and will look to build on this performance Saturday against the Mariners.

Stroman, who left Wednesday's contest with arm issues, will make his scheduled start Monday against Cleveland, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet reports.

Even though this news comes as expected, it definitely allows owners to breathe a deep sigh of relief. Stroman's midweek diagnosis of "general arm soreness" was a scary one, but it appears the right-hander avoided any serious issues. Adding to the good news for Stoman's fantasy owners: he's in line to make two starts next week.

Stroman -- who left Wednesday's start early due to arm soreness -- said there are no plans for further tests on his right wing, and he's confident that he'll be ready to make his next start, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet reports.

The departure of Stroman after three innings due to "some general arm tightness" is a worrying development. However, the young gun was optimistic after the game. "It's not something I'm worried about," said Stroman. "I'll just go through my normal progression during the week and I'll be ready to rock Tuesday." The right-hander went on to say he was simply having trouble getting loose on a night when the temperature sat in the mid-50s. Moving forward, it looks safe to assume Stroman will be fine to deploy as usual.

Manager John Gibbons confirmed that Stroman was removed from Wednesday's game early with tightness in his arm, Gregor Chisolm of MLB.com reports.

Stroman allowed five runs through three innings before being removed after tossing just 66 pitches. The 26-year-old called it "general arm tightness" and indicated that he would be ready to make his next start against the Indians on Tuesday, though we'll wait to see what the tests Thursday say about his status. Expect another update when more information is released.

Stroman (2-2) gave up two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out 10 over 7.1 innings in a no-decision against the Rays on Friday.

The Toronto bullpen once again unraveled in the late innings, denying Stroman a victory despite his second career start with double-digit strikeouts. His 2.97 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 28:7 K:BB through 36.1 innings all suggest the 25-year-old righty is poised for a breakthrough campaign, but he faces a tough test Wednesday on the road against the surging Yankees.

Stroman (2-2) pitched a complete game Sunday, allowing two runs (one earned) on seven hits and one walk while striking out five in a victory over the Angels.

Following a shaky start, an argument with home-plate umpire Ramon De Jesus over an illegal quick-pitch ruling seemed to motivate Stroman. The fiery right-hander was angered when the umpire awarded first base to Kole Calhoun in the third inning because the hurler threw a 3-1 pitch before the batter was deemed ready. Toronto manager John Gibbons was ejected for arguing the call, and the Angels scored on back-to-back singles immediately afterward. Stroman took a few deep breaths and responded by keeping the Halos off base for the next five innings while retiring 17 consecutive hitters. The 25-year-old has now banked complete games in two of his last three starts. Despite a rather unlucky .320 BABIP, Stroman owns a great 3.10 ERA and 3.03 FIP through four starts. He'll next toe the rubber Friday against the Rays.

Stroman (1-2) gave up six runs on 11 hits and a walk over 4.2 innings in Tuesday's 8-7 loss to Boston.

His teammates battled back late, but not quite far enough to get Stroman off the hook. This serves as an ugly reminder to Stroman owners of the perils of AL East pitcher ownership -- all those starts against the Red Sox, Yankees and Orioles promise to be no fun at all. Still, Stroman has quality stuff, so outings like this one should be the exception rather than the rule. He'll next face the Angels on the road Sunday.
