|(9/24/14) The Nationals announced the team's rotation plans after Wednesday's game was rained out.

Stephen Strasburg remains the probable starter for Saturday, while Jordan Zimmermann is scheduled to pitch the season finale Sunday after having his previously scheduled start pushed back due to a shoulder issue.
Stephen Strasburg continues strong late-season stretch
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
|(9/21/14) Stephen Strasburg tossed seven scoreless innings against the Marlins on his way to his 13th win of the season on Sunday. In holding the Marlins to just three hits and two walks, Strasburg turned in his eighth start out his last 11 in which he has allowed no more than one earned run.
Strasburg struck out five batters in the Nationals' 2-1 victory. He improved his record to 13-11 and his ERA to 3.23. He is next scheduled to face the Marlins again on Friday.
|It's difficult to argue against Stephen Strasburg being somewhat of a disappointment for Fantasy owners in 2013. On average, Strasburg was a late first-round selection in 12-team formats, but he didn't perform like a top draft pick. In fact, Strasburg didn't even rank among the top 30 Fantasy starting pitchers, finishing behind the likes of Derek Holland, A.J. Griffin, Kris Medlen and Justin Masterson. Strasburg limped out to a 1-5 record and 3.10 ERA in his first eight starts. Luckily, Strasburg's numbers did improve, as he went 7-4 with a 2.96 ERA and 140 strikeouts in 133 2/3 innings in his final 22 starts. Though, his production for Fantasy owners the rest of the way was very inconsistent. It was revealed after the season by his agent, Scott Boras, Strasburg was pitching with forearm discomfort for most of the season, which isn't encouraging since Strasburg is only a few years removed from Tommy John surgery. He also had surgery to remove bone chips from his pitching elbow in the offseason. Although it was a minor procedure, there is cause for concern because he continues to have issues with his pitching arm. Amid some durability concerns, we all know Strasburg has ace potential and he would have finished with a higher Fantasy point total had he won a few more games last season. Maybe Strasburg isn't worthy of a first-round pick in 2014, but he remains a top 10 Fantasy starting pitcher and early round selection.
