According to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times, who is currently at the Rogers Centre covering the final game of the series against the Blue Jays, Marcus Stroman has been traded to the New York Mets.
Some chatter going around Rogers Centre – UNCONFIRMED – that #BlueJays have traded Stroman to #Mets. That’s all I’ve got.

Stroman, 28, was linked to the Mets when Ken Rosenthal put out a weird tweet and scenario that would see other starter trade chip Noah Syndergaard going to the San Diego Padres. Then would see the Mets using some of those assets acquired from the Padres for Stroman from Toronto.
Topkin got the first hit, but later Jon Morosi and Jeff Passan has confirmed the trade.
Details to follow.
