Stroman says he has blister on hand

Toronto Blue Jays ace Marcus Stroman says he left his start against the New York Yankees Monday due to a blister on his throwing hand.

After the Jays’ 6-3 loss to the Yankees - the team’s fifth in a row - Stroman told reporters that he has never dealt with blisters in his career and called it an “epidemic” this year in baseball.

“Just got a blister,” said Stroman to MLB.com’s Gregor Chisholm. “I’ve never had a blister ever in my life. Nothing remotely close to having a blister. It’s crazy. It’s extremely frustrating, extremely frustrating. I feel like it’s an epidemic that’s happening across the big leagues now, a bunch of pitchers getting blisters. Guys who have never had blisters before. For MLB to turn their back on it, I think it’s kind of crazy. It’s extremely frustrating.”
