Marcus Stroman is sick of losing and isn't scared to hide it.

"It's frustrating," the Toronto Blue Jays right-hander told Sportsnet following the club's latest loss to the Colorado Rockies on Saturday. "I work extremely hard every single day. Extremely hard.

"I hold myself to an extremely high level and we're losing a lot. So it's not fun. This is not fun. It's not a fun atmosphere. I'm a winner. I hate losing. I can't put that into words enough."

Stroman was tagged for three runs in the opening frame and even though he settled down, allowing one run over the subsequent six innings, the right-hander was sidled with the seventh loss of his season. His 3-7 record is accompanied by a career-best 2.84 ERA over his 76 innings of work.

Red Sox take down Blue Jays, 12-2, in a laugher

Red Sox take down Blue Jays, 12-2, in a laugher The 25-22 Red Sox ruined Victoria Day in Toronto by disposing of the 19-28 Blue Jays, 12-2, in almost laughably easy fashion in the first game of their series and road trip. BOX SCORE: RED SOX 12, BLUE JAYS 2 Four Red Sox hit home runs, five knocked in at least one run and seven batters scored at least one time in the 16-hit barrage. David Price looked sharp in his first start since May 2 when he was afflicted with elbow tendinitis. In his five innings and 67 pitches, he allowed two runs, neither of them earned, off three hits, one a home run, no walks and four strikeouts.

Toronto Blue Jays placed RHP Marcus Stroman on the 10-day disabled list. Right middle finger blister. Toronto Blue Jays sent RHP Marcus Stroman on a rehab assignment to New Hampshire Fisher Cats.

He and the Blue Jays avoided arbitration this offseason, agreeing to a .4 million deal. “Would it bother you?” Stroman said about allegedly not being offered The plea might not be the best timed. Stroman had a terrific 2017 but struggled in 2018, putting up a 5.54 ERA in 102 1/3 innings, though

With Saturday's loss being the team's fifth in a row, the Jays fell to 21-37, 17 1/2 games back of the first-place New York Yankees and are one of five teams with more than 35 losses. Toronto's current skid marks their fourth losing streak of four games or more this season.

In late April, a report surfaced suggesting that the Blue Jays front office would look to trade Stroman, along with Aaron Sanchez and Justin Smoak. Stroman is under team control for one more season after 2019, entering his fourth year of arbitration eligibility.
