Yankees' Interest In Marcus Stroman Wasn't Very High

The Yankees, meanwhile, have come together behind the resurgence of LHP James Paxton (15-6, 3.73 ERA), who has won 10 straight starts since August 2, and the return of ace RHP Luis Severino (1-0, 0.00 ERA), who has 13 strikeouts to two walks since last Tuesday.

"We were interested in Stroman but we didn't think he would be a difference-maker", Cashman said.

Considering the bevy of rumors linking Marcus Stroman to the Yankees before July's trade deadline, it wasn't a surprise rebuilding Toronto sent the right-hander to NY during the summer.

In response to that tweet, Brown wrote: 'System working effectively'. Every team is faced with different adversities ... Some teams are 0-3 at this time.

He reportedly was disappointed that he didn't end up with a team he considered a contender - the Mets at the time were six games back of the wild card - and his father confirmed in an interview with Newsday that Stroman was "hoping" for the Yankees. Stroman has a better ERA than Paxton and Tanaka (Severino started only twice due to an injury), and his fourth-ranked ground-ball rate would have fit well with the Yankees, who are known to favor that trait in their pitchers. "We felt he would be in our bullpen in the postseason".

And this year, when the Blue Jays were demanding (Clint) Frazier be included in a deadline deal for Marcus Stroman, Cashman refused to let the promising but erratic young outfielder go.

Stroman in New York's postseason bullpen doesn't pass the sniff test - it was clear CC Sabathia and J.A. Happ were not serious postseason rotation candidates in July - but to each his own. Sports tracing Cashman's job from 1998 to the franchise's pivotal 2019 season spilled into Tuesday, Stroman seemed to catch wind of comments made by the Yankees general manager about the Mets RHP. Impressive if he did.
