Players must accept qualifying bids by 5 pm Eastern Time on Wednesday. In addition to Stroman, Trevor Bauer, Kevin Gausman, George Springer, DJ LeMahieu and JT Realmuto also received offers. Bauer’s agent stated that he would not accept the offer, and there were reports that Le Maciu would also reject the offer.
In the shortened 2020 season of the flu pandemic, Stroman entered the free agency market but did not make any demands. After recovering from a torn muscle in his left calf, he suffered two days before the start of the season. After discussing the coronavirus pandemic with his family, the right-hander decided in August to quit the rest of the season.
At the time, 29-year-old Stroman (Stroman) said that the decision was made entirely in the “best interests of my family”, adding that his grandmother and uncle had already damaged the immune system and Stay with your mother regularly.
The reason he decided to quit was that in the second simulated game, he made 85 shots with the goal of restoring the Mets’ position next week. He was then included in the restricted list.
The 5-foot-7 Stromman grew about 50 miles from Citi Field, and after being acquired from the Toronto Blue Jays on the trade deadline in 2019, he played in 11 innings. Achieved a 4-2 ERA with 3.77 ERA. The Blue Jays’ All-Star team reached 6-11 with a 2.96 ERA of 21 before the start of the trade.
