The Marcus Stroman era in Toronto might be over.
Amid rumors that the Blue Jays are looking to move the pitcher, Stroman took the mound Wednesday night against the Indians, where he allowed one run in Cleveland’s eventual 4-0 win.
When he left after the seventh inning, cheers and a standing ovation erupted from the stands of Rogers Centre, and Stroman yelled out “This is my house!” walking out.
“Just thought it could be my last outing here,” Stroman told The Star. “I’ve always been emotional. I feel like I’ve had a pretty good tenure as a Blue Jay.

There’s been no willingness from the front office to sign me, so I’ve just come to terms with it.”
