Marcus Stroman drops appeal, will serve five-game suspension
Blue Jays pitcher Marcus Stroman has dropped his appeal and had his suspension reduced from six games to five for throwing at Orioles catcher Caleb Joseph.
The Blue Jays were peeved the previous inning when Joseph was blocking the plate and appeared to accidentally step on Jose Reyes' hand.
Stroman is eligible to return to action Friday, coincidentally, against the Orioles. The rookie is 11-6 with a 3.77 ERA (104 ERA+), 1.20 WHIP and 107 strikeouts in 126 2/3 innings this season.
