"Stuff-wise, arm-wise, knee-wise and health-wise, I'm ready to go. I feel great. It's just a matter of getting up there, getting into the bullpen, fine-tuning and I'll be ready to go."He allowed eight hits and four earned runswith four walks and five strikeouts in Monday's start. But despite the struggles, he's confident in his progre sion."My arm felt great and my <a href="https://www.rangersedges.com/texas-rangers/ferguson-jenkins-jersey" alt="https://www.rangersedges.com/texas-rangers/ferguson-jenkins-jersey" title="https://www.rangersedges.com/texas-rangers/ferguson-jenkins-jersey">https://www.rangersedges.com/texas-rangers/ferguson-jenkins-jersey</a> knee felt great," Stroman said Monday.

I was up in the zone ...rushing it a little bit and a little quick. My stuff was a little elevated but that'sstuff that can be adjusted in the bullpen."Stroman, whowent 11-6 with a 3.65 ERA in 20 starts as a rookie last year,won't get an easy start when he returns, though, as he'll be thrown into an important game against the Yankeeswho are just a 1/2 game back in the AL East.
