Toronto Blue Jays fans and Duke fans have been waiting since draft day for today’s news. This was the news I was hoping for today when Marcus Stroman tweeted last night
All day, I kept checking Twitter, waiting for the news. Then it came
Stroman was the Blue Jays second first round draft pick (number 22) in June’s MLB Draft. It has been reported that he signed for the recommended slot at $1.8 million. Now that he has signed, the Blue Jays have signed all of their picks through the first ten rounds.
Stroman leaves Duke as one of the program’s best pitchers of all-time. This past season, he had a 2.39 ERA with 136 strikeouts in 98 innings.
Let the time clock begin to when we will see Stroman donning a Blue Jays jersey in his big league debut.
