Toronto Blue Jays starter Marcus Stroman says he's ready to return to the major league mound.

The right-hander, who's been sidelined since early May with shoulder fatigue in his throwing arm, said in a tweet Monday night that his next start will be with the Blue Jays.

Stroman was scheduled to pitch a rehab start with double-A New Hampshire Monday, but the game was postponed due to rain.

Stroman allowed two runs and one hit while walking four over 4 1/3 innings Wednesday in a rehab start with high-A Dunedin.

The 27-year-old was 0-5 with a 7.71 earned-run average through seven starts with Toronto before landing on the disabled list. He hasn't pitched for the Blue Jays since May 8.
