2014 Fantasy Baseball: SP Marcus Stroman Showing Keeper Potential
The Toronto Blue Jays are filled with big name players. The team is anchored by former Cy Young winner R.A. Dickey, plus veteran sticks Jose Bautista, Melky Cabrera and Jose Reyes.
Shockingly, though, one of the most impressive fantasy performances this season has come from rookie hurler Marcus Stroman. The right-hander may have started the season in the bullpen, like most rookie starting pitchers, but he hasn’t wasted anytime making a name for himself in the fantasy community.
The young fireballer has quietly been dealing game after game. The former Duke standout has a 7-2 record to go along with a 3.03 ERA and a 1.10 WHIP. He has quickly earned the trust of the coaching staff this season and doesn’t appear to be leaving the rotation anytime soon.
Stroman has a beautiful repertoire of pitches. He has a nasty fastball that regularly touches over 92 MPH, but he also mixes in a cutter, curveball, and slider. He can consistently mixed in all four pitches and his identical delivery makes it nearly impossible for opposing hitters to track. He is truly one of the most promising pitchers in the game.
Stromon is worth locking up for a couple seasons in any type of dynasty league. He will be highly sought after next year and this may be the last time to get ahold of him without trading the house.
