Cubs pitcher Marcus Stroman named NL Player of the Week

1 year agoAndy Martinez

The “Stro Show” went league wide this week. 

Marcus Stroman was named the National League player of the week after a dazzling week which included a complete game, 1-hit shutout against the Tampa Bay Rays. 

Stroman was 2-0, had 14 strikeouts, allowed 0 earned runs and permitted just 5 hits and 4 walks in 15 innings of work. 

The complete game against the Rays was the first pitched by a Cubs’ pitcher since Alec Mills’ no-hitter on September 13, 2020 against the Brewers. 

The 31-year-old was the Cubs’ Opening Day starter and has taken the team’s ace mantle and run with it. He has an NL-best 1.000 WHIP, a 2.39 ERA — second in the National League — and has pitched the most innings (79) of any NL pitcher. Stroman has gone at least 6 innings, allowing 2 or fewer runs in 11 of his 13 starts this season.
