Marcus Stroman Named Opening Day Starter For The Toronto Blue Jays

The Toronto Blue Jays have named Marcus Stroman as their Opening Day starter, manager John Gibbons announced and Stroman confirmed on Twitter.

Stroman has been expected to be the top guy in Toronto's rotation since David Price left for the Boston Red Sox in free agency.

The 24-year-old is entering just his third season in the majors, and spent most of last season on the disabled list after suffering a severe knee injury last spring. However, he was able to return late in the year, posting a 4-0 record with a 1.67 ERA in the regular season before reeling off a memorable postseason run (1-0 in three starts, 10 strikeouts).

For his career, Stroman has a 15-6 record with a 3.31 ERA. Marco Estrada, R.A. Dickey, J.A. Happ and  either Aaron Sanchez or Gavin Floyd will fill out Toronto's rotation behind him.
