Marcus Stroman done for the year with torn ACL

Toronto Blue Jays starting pitcher Marcus Stroman will miss the 2015 season after tearing his ACL during PFP

Toronto Blue Jays starting pitcher Marcus Stroman is going to miss the entire 2015 season due to a torn ACL, suffered while he was doing pitcher fielding practice today.

The 23 year old Stroman had a very good rookie season for the Jays in 2014, and was expected to be a key part of their rotation in 2015.  The Jays don't have a ton of starting pitching depth, and as a team that has positioned itself to contend in 2015, they may be in a position where they will end up having to make a move sooner rather than later to shore up the rotation.

This is just the latest in a rash of significant pitcher injuries of late, with Yu Darvish having been diagnosed with a sprained UCL that will likely cost him the 2015 season, and Cliff Lee being diagnosed with a torn flexor tendon in his elbow that could knock him out for the year, as well.
