    Yes sir, been preaching this since the Latos promotion, Ughh...

    But Grant77 told us that Latos has cemented a spot just last week!

    Until Sanchez was back, not for the entire season.

    The Score app says Stroman isn't worried at all and is confident he'll make his next start for whatever that is worth.

    Yes, but I don't see the Jays management getting punked by any of their players like Syndergaard did to the Mets with the refusal of the MRI.

    MRI's are for pussies.

    If Stroman doesn't get examined I hope his arm explodes during his next start.

    Stupidity should not be rewarded.

    Figures last season the Jays had Chavez, Hutch, and Floyd as their depth starters and never needed them. This year their depth starters are Latos, Lawrence, and Bolsinger (I guess), and they'll probably need them a bunch with Happ/Sanchez already out, and Stroman doing his best Thor impression.

    Stroman is incredibly stubborn. Wouldn't surprise me if his arm falls off next start.

    T.J. House seems like a good option to try. In 27 MLB games (22 starts) he has 117.2 ip with a 4.44 ERA and 3.44 xFIP. So far at AAA this season, he has a 1.64 ERA over 22.0 ip in 4 starts.

    I'll take an established junkballer over a "trying so hard to re-invent himself as one but failing miserably" junkballer like Latos any day.

    This would be great news. Even if he isn't hurt (which would be great) he just looked like he had nothing working yesterday. It happens. Lets hope just an aberration.

    It will be interesting to see what happens with Latos after 1 good outing and 2 garbage ones. I guess it depends where they stand with Sanchez and Stroman. Then again, he seems like an obvious choice to be moved off the active roster (DFA'd) to make room for the recent waiver claim, Ramirez.

    Any chance they stretch out Biagini? Threw 41 pitches in his last outing. Can't see why they can't work off that and stretch him out over a few starts.
