    Stroman has been on the injured list for over a week and hasn't pitched since May 1. He threw a bullpen session Tuesday, per Jordan Bastian of At this point, it's unclear whether he will require a rehab outing before he returns to the roster, but the righty's next steps should be revealed soon.

  • Cubs' Marcus Stroman: Set to return Thursday

    Stroman (illness) is listed as the Cubs' probable starting pitcher for Thursday's game against the Diamondbacks in Chicago, Jordan Bastian of reports.

    Stroman cleared all COVID-19-related protocols Tuesday and rejoined the team, but the Cubs will give him two days to regain conditioning before formally reinstating him from the COVID-19-related injured list Thursday. Because Stroman didn't complete a rehab assignment beforehand and hasn't started since May 1 before landing on the IL, the Cubs could limit his workload more than usual in his return to action.

  • Cubs' Marcus Stroman: Plays catch

    Stroman (undisclosed) played catch Saturday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Stroman has been on the COVID-19 injured list since Sunday. His expected return date is unclear, but the fact that he's ready for some activity suggests he may not miss too much more time.

  • Cubs' Marcus Stroman: Lands on injured list

    Stroman (undisclosed) was placed on the injured list Sunday, Andy Martinez of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    The move doesn't include an injury designation, which likely means Stroman's absence is related to COVID-19. Assuming that's the case, the 31-year-old can be activated as soon as he clears the MLB's testing protocols. He was scheduled to start Sunday against the Dodgers, but Justin Steele will instead take the mound for the Cubs.

  • Cubs' Marcus Stroman: Dazzles for first win

    Stroman (1-3) tossed seven scoreless innings to earn the win Sunday against the Brewers. He allowed two hits and a walk while striking out five.

    The Brewers came into Sunday's contest on a five-game winning streak and had scored 38 runs in that span, so Stroman's first win with the Cubs was certainly impressive. He also outdueled 2021 Cy Young Award winner Corbin Burnes, who allowed only two runs across his seven innings. Stroman has gotten off to a slow start with a 5.13 ERA through five starts, though his last two outings have been better, allowing just two earned runs across 13 innings. The righty will look to keep it rolling in his next scheduled start Saturday against the Dodgers.

  • Cubs' Marcus Stroman: Pitches well in defeat

    Stroman (0-3) allowed three runs (two earned) on six hits across six innings to take the loss Tuesday against Atlanta. He had no walks and struck out three.

    Stroman pitched a lot better than he had his previous two starts, but the Cubs only mustered one run of support, leaving the righty still searching for his first win with his new team. Because of those rough two outings in which he allowed 12 earned runs across 8.1 innings, Stroman is saddled with a 6.98 ERA for the season. He'll look to keep whittling that down in his next start.

  • Cubs' Marcus Stroman: Struggles again in loss

    Stroman (0-2) allowed eight runs (seven earned) on eight hits across 4.1 innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Rays. He walked two and struck out seven.

    The strikeouts are the only silver lining here, as Stroman struggled for the second straight start. In those outings, the righty has allowed 12 earned runs in just 8.1 innings, which has pushed his season ERA to 8.78. This is of course not what the Cubs expected when they signed Stroman to a three-year, $71 million deal over the winter, but he still has plenty of time to turn things around. The 30-year-old will look to get back on track in his next scheduled start Tuesday against Atlanta.

  • Cubs' Marcus Stroman: Struggles at Coors Field

    Stroman (0-1) allowed five runs on six hits across four innings to take the loss Friday against the Rockies. He walked one and struck out four.

    As is the case with many pitchers, Stroman struggled to find his footing at Coors Field. The righty actually looked good through three innings, but the Rockies tallied five runs on four hits and a walk in the fourth inning. The big blow was a three-run home run by Alan Trejo. The tough outing pushed Stroman's season ERA to 6.00, though better days should be ahead. He lines up to face the Rays on Wednesday in his next scheduled start.

  • Cubs' Marcus Stroman: Fans three in Cubs debut

    Stroman allowed a run on two hits and three walks while striking out three in five innings during Sunday's loss to the Brewers. He didn't factor into the decision.

    Despite throwing just 42 of his 79 pitches for strikes, Stroman was sharp during his team debut. He was unable to pick up the win since the Cubs' bullpen surrendered the 3-1 lead following his departure, but his debut was certainly encouraging. The right-hander has shown improvement in each of his last two seasons, most recently posting a 3.02 ERA and 1.15 WHIP in 179 innings during 33 starts with the Mets last year. Stroman tentatively lines up to make his next start at hitter-friendly Coors Field against the Rockies on Friday.

  • Cubs' Marcus Stroman: Should slot in as No. 2 starter

    With Kyle Hendricks being named the Opening Day starter, per Tony Andracki of Marquee Sports Network, Stroman should work as the Cubs' No. 2 starter.

    This is how the two pitchers have operated in spring training, so this alignment for the regular season is not surprising. Even if Hendricks is technically the No. 1 starter, Stroman may end up being the better fantasy asset based on his stronger numbers from a season ago.

  • Cubs' Marcus Stroman: Allows two runs in second start

    Stroman gave up two runs on three hits across two innings in Wednesday's Cactus League game against the Athletics. He walked two and struck out three.

    Stroman wasn't as sharp as he was in his first start of the spring Friday, when he logged two perfect innings with three strikeouts. The numbers don't matter much at this point, of course, as the righty is simply trying to gear up for the regular season. He figures to be a strong fantasy asset in his first year with the Cubs.

  • Cubs' Marcus Stroman: Looks good in spring debut

    Stroman pitched two perfect innings in Friday's Cactus League game against the Giants. He struck out three.

    Stroman wasn't expected to pitch deep into the game in his spring training debut, but he looked very sharp while he was on the mound. The Cubs' big offseason addition should slot in behind Kyle Hendricks in the rotation this year. Stroman was good in 2021 with the Mets, posting a 3.02 ERA and 1.15 WHIP across 179 innings, and should be a solid fantasy contributor in 2022.

  • Cubs' Marcus Stroman: Will make debut Friday

    Stroman will make his spring training debut Friday against the Giants, Taylor McGregor of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    Stroman joined the Cubs in the offseason and will look to make a strong first impression with his new club. Kyle Hendricks will make his spring debut a day earlier, so perhaps that will be the order heading into the regular season. Either way, Stroman will be expected to be a key contributor in the rotation. After not pitching in the shortened 2020 season, the righty registered a solid 3.02 ERA and 1.15 WHIP across 179 innings with the Mets last year.
