Jays lose Stroman to torn ACL

Dunedin, FL (SportsNetwork.com) – Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Marcus Stroman
will miss the 2015 season after suffering a torn ACL in his left knee.

The 23-year-old right-hander was hurt Tuesday morning during pitchers’
fielding practice.

“Beyond devastated. Not being able to compete with my brothers each and every
day is extremely disappointing,” Stroman wrote Tuesday on Twitter. “Still
can’t believe it.”

Stroman was expected to be a key piece to Toronto’s starting rotation this
season after a strong rookie campaign. He was 11-6 with a 3.65 ERA and 111
strikeouts over 130 2/3 innings in 26 games, including 20 starts, in 2014.
