Mets' Marcus Stroman: Opts out of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stroman (calf) elected to opt out of the season Monday, Anthony DiComo of reports.

Stroman had been working his way back from a strained calf, but he evidently changed his plans and won't be returning until next season. He called his opt out a "collective family decision," per Tim Healey of Newsday, related purely to the COVID-19 pandemic. His calf is reportedly fully healthy, but he'll still enter free agency having spent an entire year without pitching in a game, which could certainly suppress his value on the open market. The Mets will place Stroman on the restricted list to clear a spot on the 40-man roster.

Mets' Marcus Stroman: One more sim game on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stroman (calf) will throw another simulated game next week before being activated from the injured list, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

Stroman has been dealing with a torn left calf since shortly before the start of the season. While he's moving better now, the Mets want to give him a bit more time to heal before he returns to the rotation. He threw five innings and more than 80 pitches in his previous simulated game Thursday, so he should be able to handle a full starter's workload in his season debut.

Mets' Marcus Stroman: Slated to throw another sim game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stroman (calf) will throw a simulated game Thursday at the Mets' alternate training site, Anthony DiComo of reports.

Stroman threw a 43-pitch bullpen session Tuesday which apparently went well since he'll throw again Thursday. While the sim game means that he'll miss at least one more turn through the rotation before returning to the active roster, the throwing session could serve as a final tuneup for the right-hander if all goes well. Since Stroman has been on a rigorous throwing schedule, he'll presumably be near his full pitch count once he makes his season debut.

Mets' Marcus Stroman: Live batting practice goes well
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stroman (calf) threw a four-inning live batting practice session Friday that went quite well, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

Stroman also went through fielding drills to test his mobility as he works his way back from a left calf injury. His return timeline remains unclear, but it doesn't sound as though he'll miss too many more turns in the rotation.

Mets' Marcus Stroman: Set to face live hitters
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stroman (calf) will face live hitters Friday, Deesha Thosar of The New York Daily News reports.

The right-hander has been able to stay stretched out while recovering from a calf strain, but he won't be activated from the injured list until he's mobile enough to field his position without aggravating the issue. "Marcus is an explosive athlete. He plays with high energy," Mets GM Brodie Van Wagenen said Thursday. "To give him the freedom to be the player, the only way he knows how to play is full throttle. We need to make sure when he does show that burst that we're not risking re-injury and we keep him out for a longer period of time." Once Stroman is deemed ready to return, he may be able to handle a full workload right out of the gate rather than facing a pitch limit his first turn or two through the rotation.

Mets' Marcus Stroman: Throwing 'full tilt'
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Luis Rojas said Stroman (calf) is throwing bullpen sessions "full tilt," Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports.

This is encouraging news for Stroman, who is working his way back from a muscle tear in his left calf. That said, he's still apparently unable to sprint, so he'll need to clear that hurdle -- and submit a clean MRI, per Anthony DiComo of -- before he's able to rejoin the rotation. In the meantime, look for David Peterson to remain in the rotation in place of Stroman.

Mets' Marcus Stroman: Downplays injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stroman suggested Thursday in a post on his personal Twitter account that the calf injury that landed him on the 10-day injured list is a "super minor setback."

Manager Luis Rojas labeled Stroman as week-to-week Tuesday after the right-hander was revealed to have a muscle tear in his left calf, but the injury apparently hasn't prevented Stroman from working out. In his post, Stroman said he "felt great" while throwing a 55-pitch bullpen session Monday, noting that he only feels pain in his calf when he jogs and sprints. With that in mind, Stroman's progression through a running program will likely be the top determining factor in when he eventually returns from the IL. He'll likely miss at least two turns through the rotation, with Corey Oswalt looking like the top candidate to replace him at the beginning of the season.

Mets' Marcus Stroman: Lands on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stroman was placed on the injured list Wednesday with a muscle tear in his left calf, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

This news comes after Stroman reported feeling tightness in his calf earlier in the week. According to Anthony DiComo of, manager Luis Rojas said it's a "week-to-week" issue, and the right-hander isn't expected to require surgery. David Peterson is a candidate to take Stroman's place in the rotation for the time being.

Mets' Marcus Stroman: Dealing with calf tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stroman is dealing with calf tightness and may not be able to make his first start, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports.

Stroman lines up as the Mets' second starter behind Jacob deGrom, which would have him set to pitch against Atlanta on Saturday. David Peterson could be the top alternative if he's unable to make that appearance.

Mets' Marcus Stroman: Working out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stroman (undisclosed) was on the field for the Mets' full-squad workout Sunday, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

Stroman wasn't spotted Friday when the Mets opened their summer camp, but his presence Sunday suggests his earlier absence wasn't anything too concerning. With Noah Syndergaard (elbow) having undergone season-ending Tommy John surgery during MLB's hiatus, the Mets will be forced to rely more heavily on Stroman to anchor the top half of the rotation alongside ace Jacob deGrom.

Mets' Marcus Stroman: Not at Friday's workouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stroman wasn't participating in the Mets' workouts Friday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

The team didn't provide any specifics as to why Stroman and teammate Amed Rosario didn't work out with the team Friday, and it's unclear whether they were at the facility. It's unclear when Stroman is expected to take the field.

Mets' Marcus Stroman: Could get big offer from Mets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mets may be willing to offer Stroman a significant long-term contract offer before he hits free agency next offseason, Tim Britton of The Athletic suggests.

When the team traded for the right-hander last year, the assumption was he would be a Met through 2020 before testing the free-agent waters, and that the team wouldn't do much to prevent him from walking. With Noah Syndergaard now needing Tommy John surgery, however, the Mets' pitching foundation for 2021 looks a lot shakier, and as a result Britton speculates that the team might pony up a contract offer large enough to get Stroman to forego free agency. The 28-year-old is coming off a solid second half and posted a 2.70 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 7:3 K:BB through six innings this spring, but Stroman's fantasy upside in New York would look a lot better if the team could find a way to improve its infield defense.

Mets' Marcus Stroman: Sees first spring action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stroman gave up one run on three hits in 1.1 innings during a split-squad game against the Cardinals on Saturday, Mike Puma of The New York Post reports.

The right-hander had an uneventful start to his spring training schedule. Stroman is locked into the No. 3 role in the Mets' rotation this season after posting a 3.77 ERA and 60:23 K:BB in 59.2 innings following last year's trade from the Blue Jays.

Mets' Marcus Stroman: Signs for $12 million
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stroman agreed to a one-year, $12 million contract with the Mets on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

Stroman finished with a 3.22 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 159:58 K:BB over 184.1 frames in 2019 across stops with Toronto and New York. He'll slot in the near the middle of the Mets' rotation after avoiding an arbitration hearing.

Mets' Marcus Stroman: Snags 10th victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stroman (10-13) picked up the win after surrendering two runs on six hits and a walk while striking out eight over six innings Friday against the Braves.

Stroman gave up two runs in the first inning, but he managed to settle down and close out his appearance with five scoreless frames on the way to a 4-2 victory. The 28-year-old will finish out the season with a 3.22 ERA and 1.31 WHIP with a 159:58 K:BB over 184.1 innings.

Mets' Marcus Stroman: Dealing with nausea
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stroman only pitched 4.2 innings Sunday and was supposedly dealing with nausea during his outing which could've explained his abbreviated start, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

Stroman was already at 86 pitches through just 4.2 innings pitched, so he was bound to come out soon regardless of how he felt. The right-hander was dealing with some nausea and was unable to finish out the fifth inning against the Reds. The Mets' bullpen handled the work after Stroman smoothly, allowing just three hits and one run through the remainder of the game. The 28-year-old is expected to make his final start of the season, barring a Mets comeback in the wild-card race, Friday at home versus the Braves.

Mets' Marcus Stroman: Next start coming Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stroman's next start will be moved up to Sunday against Cincinnati, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

Stroman was initially slated to start Monday, but he'll switch spots with Steven Matz and will now toe the rubber Sunday instead against the Reds. Matz is slated to start Monday in the series opener with Miami as a result.

Mets' Marcus Stroman: Dominates in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stroman (9-13) got the win against the Rockies on Tuesday, scattering four hits across seven scoreless innings, striking out seven and walking one in the Mets' 6-1 victory.

Stroman has been lights out over his past two starts, with this outing leaving him with just one earned run allowed over his last 13.1 innings. His 9-13 record is lackluster, but that isn't Stroman's fault. The 28-year-old is sporting good numbers on the season: 3.21 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 149:54 K:BB across 173.2 innings between the Blue Jays and Mets.

Mets' Marcus Stroman: Yields one run in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stroman (8-13) allowed one run on four hits with four walks and six strikeouts across 6.1 innings while earning a victory against the Diamondbacks on Thursday.

Allowing four walks is obviously not ideal, but Stroman did bounce back in terms of giving up hard contact Thursday. In his last two starts, he had allowed 17 hits, including two homers, in 10 innings. This victory also gave Stroman his first win since Aug. 15. He is 8-13 with a 3.35 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 142 strikeouts in 166.2 innings with the Blue Jays and Mets this season. Stroman is scheduled to pitch next at the Rockies on Tuesday.

Mets' Marcus Stroman: Unlucky against Phillies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stroman (7-13) took the loss Saturday as the Mets fell 5-0 to the Phillies, giving up five runs (four earned) on 10 hits over four innings while striking out six.

Only two of the hits -- a leadoff homer by Cesar Hernandez, and a fourth-inning double by Corey Dickerson -- went for extra bases while three of them never left the infield, but with the Mets' offense falling silent, Stroman had no margin for error. The right-hander now has a 1-2 record with a 5.05 ERA and 37:14 K:BB through 35.2 innings since the trade that brought him over from Toronto, and he'll look for a better result in his next start Thursday, at home against Arizona.
