Stephen Strasburg lasts five innings in postseason debut
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(10/3/14) Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg lasted just five innings in his postseason debut Friday.
Strasburg proved to be hittable during the outing, giving up eight hits to the Giants. Strasburg attempted to limit the damage, as all eight hits were singles. Despite that, the Giants were able to strike in both the third and fourth innings. With men in scoring position, Joe Panik singled home a run in the third. Brandon Belt managed to do the same with a man on second the following inning.
Strasburg finished allowing two runs on eight hits over five innings. He struck out two and walked one during the outing. Strasburg was saddled with the loss.
Stephen Strasburg twirls six innings of two-hit ball
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(9/27/14) Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg twirled six innings of two-hit ball Saturday afternoon at home against Miami, improving to 14-11 on the year. The right-hander issued one walk and struck out seven in a 5-1 victory. Of his 83 pitches, 55 were strikes.
Strasburg ends his regular season campaign with a 3.14 ERA, a 1.12 WHIP and 242:43 K:BB ratio over 34 starts (215 innings). His next start will come in the postseason.
Nationals set end-of-season rotation plans
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/24/14) The Nationals announced the team's rotation plans after Wednesday's game was rained out.
Blake Treinen will pitch the first game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Mets followed by Gio Gonzalez, who was scheduled to pitch Wednesday. On Friday, Doug Fister and Taylor Hill, who will be called up before the game, will pitch during the Nationals' second doubleheader in two days. 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.
|2014 Summary: Reality may have finally caught up to expectations for Stephen Strasburg in 2014. Yes, his 14-11 record still left something to be desired, especially pitching for a contender, and he still had those occasional starts that make you wonder how he could be so hittable with such great stuff. But he finally took on an ace workload, his 215 innings ranking 14th in baseball, and his 242 strikeouts tied for the NL lead. You can't really ask for much more from a No. 1.|
Playing time status: For all the criticism the Nationals invited when they shut Strasburg down after 159 1/3 innings in his first year back from Tommy John surgery, their decision to bring him along slowly has made him as safe as you could hope for in the two years since. He had bone chips removed from the same elbow late in 2013, but given the season he just had, that's clearly a non-issue.
2015 Outlook: Just at face value, Strasburg had an encouraging 2014, but some of the strides he made peripherally suggests his 2015 could be even better. Most notably, he trimmed his walk rate to 1.8 per nine innings, putting him within shouting distance of the Cliff Lee golden standard for control. With the kind of stuff he has, that could pave way for a Cy Young award at some point. You'll find steadier starting pitchers than Strasburg on Draft Day, but you won't find many with his upside. He's a top-10 option for sure.
