Marcus Stroman - Height

How tall is MLB pitcher Marcus Stroman?

5' 8"

Although he is listed as five-foot-nine, Stroman wanted to make clear how tall he actually stands. 

Marcus Stroman was drafted by the Toronto Blue Jays in the 1st round 
(22nd pick) of the 2012 amateur draft after pitching for Duke University.

What is Stroman's velocity?
 In 2014, he relied primarily on his Fourseam Fastball (94mph), also mixing in a Sinker(93mph), Cutter (91mph), Curve (83mph), Change (86mph) and Slider (88mph).

What's up with all the 5'9" college players?

I noticed that a lot of short college players are listed at 5'9", when they are actually much shorter. It seems that they grow a couple of inches when added to the roster.

( Throws the same 6 pitches as Marcus Stroman - with both arms)
