Starting in the pen.....

Blue Jays purchased the contract of RHP Marcus Stroman from Triple-A Buffalo.
Stroman is going to pitch out of the bullpen initially, but the Blue Jays will likely find a rotation spot for him soon. The 23-year-old right-hander had an outstanding 1.69 ERA, 1.08 WHIP, and 36/7 K/BB ratio in 26 2/3 innings this season at the Triple-A level. Baseball Prospectus ranked him a Top 30 prospect over the winter. Stash him now in standard fantasy leagues.

they already went to a 6-man rotation. Why call him up now??

edit: the bullpen actually needs help. Do they want him there for a month?? I'm not sure that's a great idea. Would rather he stay stretched out.

If McGowan gets torched again tomorrow then things may change although I think it will take a little longer than that....

I read that the wanted McGowan in the BP cause of fatigue. With morrow on the 60 day DL, it shouldn't be long before stroman is in the rotation. Right?

If they're going to move him to the rotation they better do it inside of two weeks otherwise they're going to have to stretch him out again.

Move doesn't make much sense for the Jays. They have Happ and McGowan in the rotation over Stroman right now.

I think it's only for the next 2 days as the guy they really want in the bullpen is Neil Wagner but he can't be recalled for another 2 days.

I think Stroman is in the pen as insurance for 2 days basically. In case McGowan gets lit up and they don't have innings in the pen or something.

Pretty good analysis.....plausible.  We need a Canadian to give us the 411.

I think he'll be in rotation in two weeks or less.. Just a feeling
I HIR 100% with good quality.  I missed 2 HIRs but that was among the first ~100 HIRs I gave.  Pretty sure I'm 100% honest since :)

If you say WHIR, I hope you honor it.  I'll still help you in the future even if you don't HIR, but credit is a wonderful thing :)  Although I estimate reciprocated HIR rate to me is ~50% (trending up!), I expect it to rise further as we build a more helpful community here.

Little confused here. He might be sent down? Or he should be part of the rotation in the next couple of days?
