TORONTO - Marcus Stroman is listed at just 5-foot-9, but on the current Toronto Blue Jays roster he casts a big shadow.

It wasn’t that long ago that there was considerable chatter regarding Stroman as a possible rotation replacement for Dustin McGowan, but with an uptick in McGowan’s performances that idea has been placed on the shelf.

On Saturday, J.A. Happ made his second start of the season for the Jays against the Los Angeles Angels.

There wasn’t much to like.

Staked to a 1-0 lead in the first inning, Happ failed to keep the door shut as the Angels stormed back for three runs in the second and it could have been a lot more save for Albert Pujols lining out at the fence in left field with the bases full for the third out.

It was a sign of things to come in a game the Jays would drop 5-3.
