TORONTO – In his two previous starts heading into Wednesday night, Marcus Stroman gave up a lot of home runs. So many, in fact, that the total of six in those games, three in each, nearly equalled the seven he had surrendered in the 13 outings before that.
Clearly, something was up, so the exuberant right-hander did what he always does when things aren’t right, hitting the gym, rather than the video room, in search of answers. In this case, he didn’t feel like he was getting enough arm extension on his two-seamer, the offering that’s the foundation of everything he does on the mound.
