The 26-year-old left his last start in the second inning after he was struck on the right elbow by a 107.5-mph line drive off the bat of Baltimore's Mark Trumbo. X-rays were negative, but there was some swelling and soreness in the area that needed to subside before Stroman could pitch.
Toronto had an off-day on Thursday before starting a three-game series against Detroit on Friday. Stroman is 11-6 with a 3.08 ERA in 28 starts for the Blue Jays this season. Lefties Brett Anderson and J.A. Happ will start the final two games of the series, respectively.
