You can disregard Stroman’s 5-9 record as Toronto has had an abysmal season, but his 3.18 ERA and 141 ERA+ are both very good. Though he has little experience facing the NL West, he has good numbers against all four of Colorado’s division rivals, including surrendering just two runs while striking out eight over seven innings in his lone start against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Earlier this season, he pitched his first game at Coors Field and looked solid, going seven innings giving up just three earned runs to a powerful Rockies lineup.
Additionally, Stroman is entering his final year of arbitration so he would not just be a rental as the Rockies would have him at least through the 2020 season and perhaps beyond if he ends up signing an extension.
