  • Cubs' Marcus Stroman: Sharp again in win

    Stroman (6-4) allowed an unearned run on four hits across six innings to earn the win Sunday against the Padres. He walked three and struck out six.

    After a rough start against Minnesota on May 14, Stroman has been locked in over his last four outings, allowing just three earned runs across 29 innings. That's allowed the righty to lower his season ERA to a sparkling 2.39. Stroman had an ERA of 3.50 or lower each of the last three years, so while he might not be able to keep up this pace, he should remain a strong fantasy contributor the rest of the way. Stroman is tentatively set to start again Friday against the Giants on the road.

  • Cubs' Marcus Stroman: Hurls one-hit shutout

    Stroman improved to 5-4 in in Monday's 1-0 win over Tampa Bay after allowing one hit and one walk while striking out eight batters over nine shutout innings.

    The Rays entered Monday having scored the most runs in MLB, but that didn't phase Stroman as he tossed the second complete-game shutout of his nine-year big-league career (the other came during his rookie season with Toronto). The right-hander was a Wander Franco single away from a no-hitter, and he racked up 20 swinging strikes while tying his season high with eight punchouts. This was undoubtedly the high point of Stroman's campaign thus far, but he's been excellent throughout the season, tallying 10 quality starts and posting a 2.59 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and .188 BAA while leading the National League with 73 innings pitched. His strikeout numbers aren't overpowering, but Stroman is among the early Cy Young contenders in the NL with one-third of the campaign in the rearview mirror.

  • Cubs' Marcus Stroman: Dazzles in Wednesday's win

    Stroman (4-4) allowed two runs on four hits across eight innings to pick up the win Wednesday against the Mets. He walked two and struck out three.

    Stroman needed only 88 pitches to complete eight innings, as he pitched efficiently and kept New York hitters off balance all night. The righty struggled two starts ago against the Twins, allowing six runs over 2.2 innings, but he's allowed just three total runs over 14 innings in his two subsequent outings. That's allowed Stroman to lower his season ERA to a strong 2.95. He'll look to keep rolling in his next appearance, which is tentatively set for Monday against the Rays.

  • Cubs' Marcus Stroman: Sharp in third win

    Stroman (3-4) picked up the win in Friday's 10-1 rout of the Phillies, allowing one run on three hits and two walks over six innings. He struck out four.

    The veteran right-hander cruised to his eighth quality start in 10 outings so far this season, but the win was his first since April 7. Stroman will take a 3.05 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 51:21 K:BB through 56 innings into his next start, which is likely to come at home next week against the Mets.

  • Cubs' Marcus Stroman: Hit hard early in loss

    Stroman (2-4) allowed six runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out three over 2.2 innings, taking the loss Sunday against the Twins.

    Stroman gave up a home run and three doubles among those seven hits in his worst start of the season. This was just the second time in nine outings he's given up more than two runs, and it stretched his winless skid to seven starts. The veteran right-handed is at a 3.24 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 47:19 K:BB through 50 innings on the season. His 3.4 BB/9 is the highest mark of his career, and it's something he'll need to get under control to maintain success. Stroman is expected to make his next start on the road versus the Phillies.

  • Cubs' Marcus Stroman: Takes tough-luck loss

    Stroman (2-3) allowed two runs on four hits and a walk over six innings Monday, striking out six and taking a loss against the Cardinals.

    Stroman allowed a run in the second and sixth innings but didn't face much trouble otherwise. He once again didn't receive help from his offense and fell to 0-3 over his last six starts despite allowing two or fewer runs in five of those. Stroman owns a strong 2.28 ERA with a 44:17 K:BB across 47.1 frames. The 32-year-old tied his season low with 89 pitches but also tied his season best with 14 whiffs. Stroman is currently expected to start in Minnesota this weekend.

  • Cubs' Marcus Stroman: Sharp but settles for no-decision

    Stroman allowed just one run on five hits across six innings but did not factor into the decision Wednesday against the Nationals. He walked three and struck out five.

    Stroman continued his strong start to the season, as he now has a 2.18 ERA overall, though he hasn't earned a win since April 7. The righty has a 3.05 ERA across 29.1 innings following that last win, so his performance really hasn't fallen off much, but the run support just hasn't been there. Fantasy managers would like to see more wins moving forward, though it's hard to complain about how Stroman has pitched. He'll look to keep rolling when he takes the hill again early next week.

  • Cubs' Marcus Stroman: Yields two runs in no-decision

    Stroman allowed two runs on six hits and two walks over 6.1 innings during Friday's loss to Miami. He struck out three and did not factor in the decision.

    The Marlins scored just one run on Stroman through six innings before Jean Segura drove in a run in the seventh. Stroman has given up two or fewer runs in all but one of his six starts to begin the year. He's sporting a strong 2.29 ERA and 33:13 K:BB through 35.1 frames. The 31-year-old is currently lined up to start in Washington next week.

  • Cubs' Marcus Stroman: Struggles with power

    Stroman (2-2) took the loss Sunday, allowing five runs on six hits and one walk over five innings in a 7-3 loss to the Dodgers. He struck out five.

    Stroman had his worst outing of the early season, giving up five runs over five innings after allowing just two runs through 24 innings prior to Sunday. Each of the five runs came on home runs, as Stroman gave up a two-run shot to Mookie Betts in the third inning before Max Muncy and J.D. Martinez swatted back-to-back long balls in the sixth, resulting in Stroman's removal. Through five starts, Stroman is averaging a career-high 9.31 K/9 to go with a strong 2.17 ERA and 1.00 WHIP.

  • Cubs' Marcus Stroman: Tosses six scoreless innings

    Stroman did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing two hits and two walks over six scoreless innings against the Athletics. He struck out five.

    Stroman has settled into his role as the Cubs' ace nicely, as his current 0.75 ERA is second only to Mariners hurler Luis Castillo. The veteran righty has now pitched scoreless games in three of his four appearances, and he's thrown six innings in each of them. While fantasy managers will certainly appreciate his efforts to date, maintaining this level of performance all year long will be difficult. Next up is a home tilt against the Dodgers.

  • Cubs' Marcus Stroman: Takes loss despite quality start

    Stroman (2-1) took the loss Wednesday, allowing two runs on five hits and two walks over six innings during a 5-2 loss to Seattle. He struck out six.

    Stroman was sharp early and posted two scoreless innings to start the game, extending his streak to 14, but he got into trouble in the third after surrendering a leadoff double to nine-hole hitter J.P. Crawford. The right-hander walked two and gave up RBI singles to Teoscar Hernandez and Eugenio Suarez before getting back-to-back outs to end the inning. The quality start marked Stroman's third of the season, but he couldn't get any run support and picked up his first loss. Not known for having swing-and-miss stuff, Stroman has 20 strikeouts through his first 18 innings.

  • Cubs' Marcus Stroman: Sharp in Friday's win

    Stroman (2-0) picked up the win in Friday's 2-0 victory over the Rangers, allowing two hits and three walks over six scoreless innings while striking out six.

    The right-hander fired 52 of 89 pitches for strikes in another strong performance. After blanking the Brewers on Opening Day, Stroman is now the first Cubs pitcher to begin a season with two straight starts of at least six scoreless innings since Mike Bielecki in 1991. Stroman isn't known as a big strikeout pitcher, but he'll take a 14:6 K:BB through 12 innings into his next outing, likely to come at home next week against the Mariners.

  • Cubs' Marcus Stroman: Cubs-Reds postponed

    Stroman and the Cubs won't play Wednesday against the Reds after the game was postponed due to inclement weather in Cincinnati.

    The two teams will make up the postponed game as part of a split doubleheader Sept. 1. Assuming Stroman didn't go through too extensive of a warmup before Wednesday's game was ultimately postponed, he shouldn't have to be pushed back in the rotation and will likely start the Cubs' next contest Friday versus the Rangers at Wrigley Field.

  • Cubs' Marcus Stroman: Shines on Opening Day

    Stroman (1-0) struck out eight batters and allowed three hits over six scoreless innings while earning the win Thursday against the Brewers.

    Things looked a little dicey early on in the game for Stroman as he struggled with control issues and found himself in a bases-loaded scenario in the third inning. However, he was able to force a double-play to get out of it and cruised for another three innings. Stroman projected to be unspectacular in 2023, but a few more similar outings could put his name into fantasy relevancy.
