Stroman tore his ACL on March 10, and has since undergone what doctors deemed to be season-ending surgery.

Supporters of the team were hoping the star in the making would reveal an injury update, with many even inferring that the 23-year-old would be available to pitch at some point this season, despite the original prognosis.

It turns out the tweet was just one giant tease.
