Blue Jays’ Stroman on blister: ‘I’m going to make my next start’

TORONTO – For seven innings Marcus Stroman was as good as he’s been this season. His two-seamer was on point. His cutter and slider, too. He needed only 92 pitches to cut through a Boston Red Sox team that is rather definitively showing itself to be baseball’s best club.
