Marcus Stroman to pitch Game 5 for the Jays

After using David Price today in relief, the Jays will turn to Marcus Stroman for Game 5

Well, so much for the 2010 comps, as David Price will not be starting Game 5 of the ALDS for the Toronto Blue Jays.

Instead, Marcus Stroman, the 24 year old righthander who missed most of the 2015 with a torn ACL.  After undergoing knee surgery in March, Stroman was expected to miss the whole season, but made it back for four starts in September and pitched Game 2 of the ALDS in Toronto.

Stroman will match up against Rangers Game 2 starter Cole Hamels.  Price, who pitched in relief today, will not be available on Wednesday.
