BLUE BIRDS "STRO" Show on Ice for 2015!..."WORD around the WARNING TRACK" as Toronto's MARCUS STROMAN out with ACL Tear and the 2015 'JAYS Rotation! @MStrooo6 #BlueBirds #JaysNation #WeTheNorthMLB

During field drills on Tuesday Morning in 'Jays Camp RHP Marcus Stroman dba "Stro" Show went down with an apparent knee injury. Upon further findings it was an ACL Tear and for a team that has everything in place to make the AL East their Division that news is not good. Stroman is done for 2015 and the 'Jays Staff has even more pressure put on vets R.A. Dickey and Mark Buehrle.

The "Stro" Show was on point in 2014 as he went 11-6 in 20 starts going 130 2/3 frames. At the ripe age of 23 year of age Stroman has plenty of time to get back to form but what about that Blue Birds Rotation moving forward.

2015 Blue Birds projected Rotation for Opening Day:

#1 RHP R.A Dickey
#2 LHP Mark Buerhle

#3 - #5 in any order

RHP Aaron Sanchez
RHP Drew Hutchison
RHP Marco Estrada
LHP Daniel Norris
LHP Johan Santana *

The 'Jays were counting on the "Stro" Show to ge their #3 starter behind R.A. and Buehrle and now all that has changed as the Blue Birds will have to count on at least three picthers with limited big league experience.

(*) Santana will not make it to Opening Day as he is a work in progress but if he can get back to 60% of what he use to be that is good news for the 'Jays but that is a long shot!

Behind all of that from the starting rotation it will be left-handed Brett Cecil playing Captain Save-A-Game (Closer) for the Blue Birds in 2015 as he is converted starter!
