Can Stroman Slow Orioles’ Huge Bats?

Toronto Blue Jays’ ace Marcus Stroman will face his toughest task of the season when he takes to the mound against the powerhouse Baltimore Orioles Tuesday. Stroman, who has not registered a loss since returning late last season from a torn ACL, will need to slow down an O’s offense that is averaging 2.1 home runs per game.

Shark Bites
  • In 74 career games at Camden Yards, Jose Bautista has a mere .202 batting average.
  • The OVER is 3-1 in the past four matchups between the Blue Jays and Orioles.
  • The Orioles are a perfect 5-0 at Camden Yards this season.

Stroman excels at keeping the ball in the dirt with a groundball percentage of 62.2 this season, something he will need to try and continue against the O's. Since returning from his ACL surgery last season, Stroman is 7-0 with a 2.82 ERA in eight starts while only surrendering four home runs.

Baltimore will counter Stroman with right-hander Mike Wright who will be making just his second start of the season. Wright has only faced the Jays twice in his young career, but has struggled to a 9.45 ERA while walking seven batters across 6.2 innings.
