Marcus Stroman was not happy that the New York Mets began Sunday's game against the Miami Marlins in the rain.
The game began as scheduled at 1:10 p.m. and was paused after just seven minutes by umpire D.J. Reyburn. During the rain delay, Stroman took to social media to share his frustration about having to start in bad weather, putting emphasis on the fact that players could have been injured:
This game should have never been started. Not smart at all. Those conditions put everyone at risk. Beyond happy no players on either side were injured. Hate that I have to wait another 5 days to pitch again. That’s a miserable feeling. However, #LFGM each and every day! @Mets— Marcus Stroman (@STR0) April 11, 2021
Sunday's game marked Stroman's second start of the season. He won his first outing against the Philadelphia Phillies on April 6, striking out three batters and allowing just three hits in six innings.
The 29-year-old joined the Mets from the Toronto Blue Jays in 2019. He opted out of the pandemic-shortened 2020 season due to concerns about COVID-19.
