Marcus Stroman Newsbeat

Blue Jays’ Marcus Stroman was vomiting during win over Padres

Throwing up, puking, hurling, barfing, upchucking, tossing your cookies, eating backwards… Whatever you want to call it, it’s rarely a fun experience.

And while I’ve (shockingly) never pitched in MLB, I can imagine that doing so with an uneasy stomach isn’t an ideal situation to be in.

Unfortunately for Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Marcus Stroman, that was the precisely where he found himself on Sunday. According to multiple sources, the 28-year-old righty was slipping his guts before and during his start against the San Diego Padres at the Rogers Centre.

Despite his health being a hurdle, Stroman battled through it for his side.

So, what do we choose to blame this on?

Blue Jays front office will turn the other cheek to Marcus Stroman as team rebuilds with youth | The Star

I would agree with this a little more if they didn’t keep Guerrero down last year. You are not speeding up a player’s development by keeping him in the minors longer than he needs to play there.

“Whenever you’re thinking about trying to rebuild with a sense of urgency, you’re trying to accelerate time frames, you’re trying to move it as fast as you can, there is an opportunity cost,” Shapiro says. “If you’re not committing to playing young players, two things don’t happen: One, you don’t find out about them, are they capable of being core players that you’re going to build around in the future? And two, you’re delaying their ability to transition and then develop into major-league players.

“The reality is, for us to fully know what performance to expect from a player, it’s going to take two to three seasons in the big leagues. So every time you commit to someone else playing over a younger alternative … it’s an opportunity cost question. That’s the issue. Does that make sense?’’

Makes dollars and sense, I guess.

Stroman unhappy with Blue Jays’ lack of veteran leadership

Toronto Blue Jays star Marcus Stroman lamented the lack of veteran leadership at the MLB franchise ahead of the upcoming season.

It will be a new-look Blue Jays in 2019 after Charlie Montoya replaced John Gibbons as their manager in October.

The Blue Jays also released Troy Tulowitzki and traded Russell Martin to the Los Angeles Dodgers, having dealt Josh Donaldson in August and farewelled Edwin Encarnacion and Jose Bautista previously.

Proof that it isn’t just managers who have an odd fetish for senior players for their own sake!
