New York Mets hurler Marcus Stroman has made it more than clear he’s ready to get on the bump and turn some heads for the team from Queens.
Marcus Stroman’s career with the New York Mets hasn’t quite gotten off to the start he was hoping for, but the talented starting pitcher is ready to get things rocking for the 2021 campaign. After opting out in August of last season’s shortened campaign, Stroman is hoping to have a big year.
Don’t think for a second that Stroman might be a little rusty heading into the new campaign. He made that much clear when asked about his preparation leading up to spring training.

If you’re a Mets fan, you’ve got to absolutely love what Stroman had to say about his preparation. He’s been staying ready for Opening Day for a while now, as he’s itching to remind MLB why he’s a top starter.
At the same time, It’s been a while since we’ve seen Stroman on the field. Since he opted out last season, we haven’t seen his stuff since the 2019 campaign. That season, he went 4-2 for the Mets with a 3.77 ERA in 11 starts after he was traded to Flushing by the Toronto Blue Jays.
For his career, the New York native has 51 wins and 47 losses to his name. It goes without saying, but there will be big expectations for Stroman this year. Fans are hoping to see him return to his All-Star form, while sitting down the majority of batters he faces in division play this year.
Only time will tell if Stroman will be able to deliver, but he sure has plenty of confidence with the 2021 season right around the corner.
