With the MLB Trade Deadline rapidly approaching, Toronto Blue Jays starting pitcher Marcus Stroman remains one of the most likely candidates to be dealt. At 28 years old, Stroman is still in the prime of his career and on the final year of his contract with the Blue Jays, who will likely not be resigning him and building towards the future. This season, Stroman has posted a 3.18 ERA and 5-9 record, which in large part can be credited towards the poor team he plays for. It’s also interesting to note Stroman recently removed all references to the Blue Jays on his Twitter profile.
As the Stroman sweepstakes heat up, let’s take a look at three potential destinations for the ace.
New York Yankees
The mutual interest between the New York Yankees and Marcus Stroman could not be more obvious. Amid reports suggesting the Yankees have engaged in conversations with the Blue Jays surrounding Stroman, the pitcher himself recently liked a tweet linking him to the Yankees and Minnesota Twins.
