News: Stroman has been suspended for six games for throwing at Caleb Joseph's head Monday, but he will appeal and thus the suspension won't begin until the appeal is heard, the Toronto Star's Brendan Kennedy reports. Impact: Stroman's next scheduled start is Saturday in New York, so that is up in the air until the appeal is heard. There's no scenario where Stroman wouldn't be able to make at least one more start this year, because if the suspension begins before Saturday, he'll still be able to pitch next week. However, it does make it unlikely that Stroman will be able to make two more starts this season, which lessens his value for owners in single-season leagues chasing counting stats.(RotoWire, )

News: Stroman is appealing his six-game suspension that Major League Baseball imposed for throwing at the head of a Baltimore hitter. Impact: MLB penalized Stroman on Wednesday and also fined the 23-year-old rookie an undisclosed amount. The suspension had been set to start on Wednesday night when the Blue Jays played at Baltimore. Because Stroman is appealing, no penalty will take effect until there is a resolution.(STATS, 6:09pm)

News: Stroman lost Monday against the Orioles as he pitched six innings and allowed five runs, nine hits and two walks to go along with three strikeouts. Impact: Stroman has had some rough starts of late as he has allowed five earned runs in four of his last eight starts to increase his ERA from 3.03 to 3.80. He has shown plenty of promise this season, but might be tiring down the stretch of his rookie season.(RotoWire, )

News: Stroman's next start has been pushed back to Monday against the Orioles, Shi Davidi of reports. Impact: The 23-year-old hasn't fared particularly well against the Rays this season, with seven earned runs allowed over 11 innings, so the Blue Jays will instead start Mark Buehrle in the finale against Tampa. Stroman, who tossed a complete game three-hitter his last time out, will now go Monday against Baltimore, a team he's yet to face this season.(RotoWire, )

News: Stroman's next start could be moved back from Sunday against the Rays to Tuesday against the Orioles, the Associated Press reports. Impact: The Jays haven't made a final decision yet, but Mark Buehrle is available on regular rest to face the Rays on Sunday, and the veteran left-hander has fared better against Tampa Bay than the rookie has this season.(RotoWire, )
