(WVUE) - Marcus Stroman said New York Mets fans called him the n-word and sent death threats to him while he was spending time with his team.

The 30-year-old pitcher took to Twitter about why he’s happy to start fresh and about the awful treatment he received from fans during his 2 seasons with the Mets.

“Endless death threats, being called a n***** often, hearing black lives don’t matter, and playing for a front office who didn’t care about any of that.”
