Marcus Stroman (calf) throws a four-inning simulated game Friday

Mets starter Marcus Stroman (calf) threw four innings of live batting practice in a simulated game on Friday that went well, according to Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record.

Fantasy Impact

Stroman also went through fielding drills and did not suffer any setbacks as he continues to work his way back from a left calf injury. He has already been throwing bullpen sessions but has been unable to run at full speed, so the fielding drills were a key aspect here. Stroman doesn't yet have a timeline for a return, but it sounds like he is getting close.

Marcus Stroman (calf) to face live hitters on Friday

Marcus Stroman (calf) is scheduled to face live hitters on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Stroman hasn't faced live hitters since landing on the IL prior to Opening Day with a left calf tear. He could be ready to join the Mets rotation sometime around mid-August.

Marcus Stroman is throwing live bullpen sessions

Marcus Stroman, who was placed on the 10-day IL with a left calf tear on 7/22, has been throwing live bullpen sessions per Mets manager Luis Rojas.

Fantasy Impact

The live BP has been "full tilt" but Stroman is still unable to sprint according to Mets pitching coach Jeremy Hefner. Stroman appears to be making a quicker recovery than was initially thought but the fact he is unable to sprint shows that he still has a ways to go. Perhaps sometime in mid-to-late August he could return to the rotation but it's up in the air for now.

Marcus Stroman placed on the IL with calf tear

Marcus Stroman was placed on the 10-day IL with a left calf tear on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

The injury is more serious than was initially thought as he was described as having "calf-tightness" and was considered day-to-day earlier on Wednesday. The good news is that he won't require surgery but the bad news is that this turns into a "week-to-week" situation per Mets manager Luis Rojas. He will likely be on the injured list for quite some time and with the 2020 season being truncated this puts his entire year in jeopardy. The Mets have not made public their plans for replacing Stroman but there are several outcomes they can choose from. They may go with a four-man rotation and use an opener/bullpen combination every fifth day or go with a replacement starter like Erasmo Ramirez, Corey Oswalt, or David Peterson. Top prospect Peterson would be the most intriguing option from a fantasy perspective. The team has stated that Seth Lugo is not an option at this time and will remain in the bullpen for high-leverage situations.

Marcus Stroman (calf) considered day-to-day

Marcus Stroman is day-to-day with calf tightness.

Fantasy Impact

Mets manager Luis Rojas is apparently unsure if Stroman will be ready for his first turn in the rotation. It's a frustrating development as he was looking great during summer camp. We should get more information in the next day or two regarding his availability.
