MLB trade rumors: Blue Jays ‘not being offered top tier prospects’ for Marcus Stroman

first_img“I realized that it could possibly (have) been my last home start so definitely just wanted to show the crowd some love,” Stroman said about the game against Cleveland. “Because the last six, seven years that I’ve been a Blue Jay, it’s been unbelievable. I don’t know what’s going to happen here so I’m truly not trying to think about it, I’m just trying to take it day by day.”The Yankees, Phillies and Braves, among others, have been linked to potential deals for Stroman. MLB trade rumors: Giants unlikely to move Madison Bumgarner, could become buyers “Thought it could be my last outing here,” Stroman told The Star after the game. “I’ve always been emotional. I feel like I’ve had a pretty good tenure as a Blue Jay. Hopefully this will be my third year throwing 200 innings or more. I feel like I’ve pitched pretty well in the best division in baseball. There’s been no willingness from the front office to sign me, so I’ve just come to terms with it.”Stroman has received little run support and has a 6-11 record this season. But, he holds a 2.96 ERA and was named to his first All-Star team in early July. *real possibility— Andy Martino (@martinonyc) July 25, 2019As of Thursday, the team was “not being offered top tier prospects” for Stroman, according to Sportsnet.At the moment, the Blue Jays are not being offered top tier prospects for Marcus Stroman, according to a source.
