The Toronto Blue Jays tonight announced that they have selected the contract of RHP MARCUS STROMAN from the Buffalo Bisons.
Stroman, 23, was the Bisons Opening Day starter and was 2-2 with a 1.69 ERA over five starts with the club. In 26.2 innings of work, the righty allowed just 22 hits while striking out 36 -4th most in the International League. He threw the first complete game of his professional career in the second game of a doubleheader in Lehigh Valley on April 9 (6.0 IP, 3 H, R, 0 ER, 5 BB, 8 SO) and collected his first win at Triple-A in his next outing, April 16 vs. Scranton/Wilkes-Barre (5.1 IP, 5 H, 9 SO). In his final and most impressive start with the Bisons, April 29 vs. Louisville, Stroman struck out 10 and walked just one in six no-hit innings. He earned his second win with Buffalo in a 4-1 victory over the Bats.
