It's a little tiny step, in terms of projected effectiveness, although he only comes with, I believe, two years of team control compared to Archer's 4 and deGrom's 3


Combined 2016-17 xFIP:

7 Jacob deGrom 3.33
8 Chris Archer 3.38
9 Dallas Keuchel 3.43
10 Robbie Ray 3.47
11 Marcus Stroman 3.50


2017 SIERA

Chris Archer 3.44

Jacob deGrom 3.44

Robbie Ray 3.53

Dallas Keuchel 3.61

Marcus Stroman 3.83



It is interesting to me that SIERA doesn't like Stroman since it takes batted ball profile into account. I would have thought Stroman would have fared better than Archer and deGrom who give up quite a few fly balls and home runs.

I’d be okay with Stroman, my only concern with him is durability as he’s a fairly small pitcher at 5’8”. I guess it depends on how much the Twins are willing to give up and if the Blue Jays are even interested in trading Stroman.

Toronto and Baltimore are clubs to follow as they may go into a semi rebuild mode in midseason if things do not go well (and Baltimore will not probably go well). That is why you may find starters available there in midseason not available now.
