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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Stroman did not factor into the decision against Philadelphia on Sunday, completing six innings and giving up two runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out six.
Stroman gave up a pair of runs in the second inning but quieted the Phillies the rest of the way, fanning six batters and tying a season high by inducing 18 swinging strikes. The 28-year-old has compiled a 4.55 ERA, 1.64 WHIP and 31:14 K:BB over 31.2 innings since joining the Mets at the trade deadline. His next scheduled start will come at home against the Phillies on Saturday.
Stroman (7-12) allowed four earned runs on six hits and two walks while striking out seven across six innings to take the loss Tuesday against the Cubs.
Stroman pitched a shutout through four innings, allowing only baserunners in the process. However, his outing was soured by a pair of two-run homers -- one in the fifth inning and the other in the sixth -- to deny him a quality start. While he hasn't worked deep into games since joining his new team, he's pitched fairly effectively across his last three starts by allowing seven earned runs in 15.1 innings. He'll look to avoid the long ball in his next outing, currently scheduled for Sunday at Philadelphia.
Stroman (hamstring) said Thursday that he will make his next scheduled start Tuesday against the Cubs, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.
He is not worried about the hamstring tightness he experienced in Wednesday's start and was more focused on his performance, saying, "I think I need to be better. I think I will be better." Stroman has a 4.58 ERA, 1.78 WHIP and 18:10 K:BB in 19.2 innings (four starts) since getting traded to the Mets.
Stroman (hamstring) underwent an MRI after leaving Wednesday's game, and manager Mickey Callaway said the team is "not concerned" by the injury, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.
Stroman was removed from Wednesday's start after four innings due to left hamstring tightness, and that appears to be the extent of the injury. The 28-year-old could still end up missing a start depending how he feels over the next couple days, but he appears to have avoided a more serious injury.
Stroman was removed from Wednesday's start against the Indians with left hamstring tightness, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
Stroman allowed one run on five hits with one strikeout and one walk before being replaced for the start of the fifth inning by Jeurys Familia. More information should be available on the injury as Stroman continues to be evaluated.
Stroman (7-11) picked up the win against the Braves on Thursday, giving up three runs (two earned) on four hits over five innings, striking out five and walking four as the Mets bagged a 10-8 victory.
He labored at times in issuing four free passes and needing 96 pitches to make it through his 5.1 frames, but Stroman did enough to pick up his first win as a Met in his third start with his new team. His 5.17 ERA since arriving from Toronto isn't very impressive, but he's still sporting a solid 3.21 mark over his combined 140.1 innings on the season.
Stroman allowed four runs on nine hits and three walks while striking out nine over six-plus innings Friday night against the Nationals. He didn't factor into the decision.
Stroman cruised through three scoreless innings to begin the night, but the Nats struck for three runs in the fourth and another in the seventh. Fortunately, the Mets would get Stroman off the hook for the loss by rallying for four runs in the bottom of the ninth. The 28-year-old right-hander has given up seven runs while striking out 12 over 10.1 frames in his first two starts as a Met.
Stroman allowed three runs on seven hits with two walks and three strikeouts across 4.1 innings in a no-decision against the Pirates on Saturday.
The 28-year-old didn't finish with a terrible line in his Mets debut, but it could have easily been a lot worse. Stroman left in the middle of the fifth, and only one of his two inherited runners scored. Furthermore, the Mets rallied to take away the Pirates' lead, getting Stroman off the hook. Stroman is 6-11 with a 3.07 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 102 strikeouts in 129 innings with the Blue Jays and Mets this season. He will make his second start with the Mets on Friday against the Nationals.
Stroman will start Saturday against the Pirates, Matt Ehalt of Yahoo Sports reports.
Stroman is set to make his Mets debut Saturday after being acquired from the Blue Jays over the weekend. Prior to being traded, the righty compiled a 2.96 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 99 strikeouts in 124.2 innings.
Stroman was traded from the Blue Jays to the Mets on Sunday, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.
Stroman has put together a stellar season on the hill to this point, posting a 2.96 ERA and 1.23 WHIP with 99 punchouts over 124.2 innings with Toronto. Unless the non-contending Mets plan to flip him, he'd immediately bolster New York's starting rotation, likely slotting in behind Jacob deGrom and Noah Syndergaard (who is also on the trade block) as the team's No. 3 starter. After all, New York would have him under team control for 2020. It remains to be seen who the Blue Jays will receive in return for Stroman.
Stroman (6-11) allowed one run on five hits with one walk and six strikeouts across seven innings while taking a loss against the Indians on Wednesday.
The 28-year-old's bad fortune continued, as he actually lowered his ERA below 3.00 with this performance but continues to have almost twice as many losses as wins. Stroman has two victories in the last five weeks, and in both games, he didn't allow a run, which seemingly is what's required for him to capture a victory this season. Despite his 6-11 record, he owns a 2.96 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 99 strikeouts in 124.2 innings. Stroman will pitch next at the Royals on Tuesday.
