A look at what’s happening all around the majors today:
Marcus Stroman makes his season debut for Toronto after winning MVP honors with Team USA at the World Baseball Classic last month. Stroman was 1-1 with a 2.35 ERA in three starts for the United States, including six dominant innings during an 8-0 win over Puerto Rico in the championship game. After missing most of 2015 with a knee injury, Stroman threw 204 innings for the Blue Jays last year. He’ll try to begin another workhorse season when winless Toronto opens a four-game series at Tampa Bay.
The Tigers and White Sox are hoping to avoid another postponement, but more rain is in the Chicago forecast. The AL Central rivals have been rained out twice this week, including Monday’s scheduled opener, and could end the four-game series with only one in the books. Bad weather could also cause delays or postponements for Philadelphia at Cincinnati, Pittsburgh at Boston, Miami at Washington, the Los Angeles Angels at Oakland, and Atlanta at the New York Mets.
