TORONTO -- Marcus Stroman might be the only person who could've envisioned everything playing out this way. Seven months ago, his season was thought to be lost to a torn ACL in his left knee. On Wednesday, he'll take the mound in the deciding game of the Blue Jays' American League Division Series against the Rangers at Rogers Centre (4 p.m. ET, FOX Sports 1/Sportsnet).
"It's hard for me to talk about. I get the chills," Stroman said, pondering how far he's come since he heard a pop in his left knee while executing a routine fielding drill at the Blue Jays' Spring Training complex in Dunedin, Fla., in March.
