Jon Morosi reports that Blue Jays starter Marcus Stroman reported feeling “great” after throwing a 40-pitch simulated game today. He’ll throw another one on Friday and, assuming all is could, should be cleared to join Buffalo for a minor league rehab assignment.
Stroman has missed all season after tearing his ACL in spring training. He was thought to be gone for the year, but he’s rehabbing more quickly than expected. Which could be a big deal for the Blue Jays, who could use last year’s rookie sensation as either a starter or as a secret weapon out of the pen down the stretch or in the playoffs.
