The Mets acquired Stroman, along with cash considerations, in exchange for prospect pitchers Anthony Kay and Simeon Woods Richardson. .
This season, the 28-year-old has posted a 3.06 ERA, while making his first All-Star game this season.

The fans back home on Long Island are overjoyed at the prospect of watching Stroman play in the blue and orange.
“As a longtime Mets fan, nothing makes me happier to root for a kid from my hometown,” said Michael Lauria, who owns Rudi’s Bar & Grill in North Patchogue. “I couldn’t be happier.”
