Marcus Stroman: Suspended Six Games Pending Appeal

4:44 PM

Stroman has been suspended for six games for throwing at Caleb Joseph's head in Monday's game, but he will appeal and thus the suspension won't begin until the appeal is heard, the Toronto Star's Brendan Kennedy reports.

Analysis:

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.
