In a Twitter exchange, Stroman responded to a tweet from ESPN’s Jeff Passan, who wrote about new White Sox manager Tony La Russa, who had his second DUI charge in February. He pleaded guilty to DUI in 2007 after falling asleep at a traffic light in Florida. This second arrest took place in Arizona. A White Sox spokesperson said the organization was aware of the incident before hiring him.
A Twitter user wrote to Stroman asking, “How much money would it take you to play for a seemingly racist old alcoholic?”

Stroman, a returning 2019 All-Star, suffered a torn left calf muscle, which forced him to miss the early parts of the 2020 season. However, after fully recovering, Stroman decided to retiring from the rest of the season due to the coronavirus, and that ended his one-year stint with the New York Mets.
