Not given much attention in 2019 drafts, Stroman made the All-Star team and sported a 2.96 ERA and 56.3% ground-ball rate before getting traded to the Mets. The strikeouts (117 in 144.1 IP) are nothing exciting, and a 3.70 FIP is a more reasonable expectation than his current 3.17 ERA. Even that could be optimistic given the Mets' woeful defense and their pitching staff's collective struggles with their sliders. At least he gets to move from the AL East to the NL. Expect a bit of a second-half decline that would make the 28-year-old righty more of a SP4 to use in the right spots.

Once again, Stroman is pitching deep into games but without many strikeouts. The big difference, however, has been a vast improvement in his ratios and that may further improve if he gets dealt to a better ballpark and perhaps an NL team.
