Nationals' Stephen Strasburg stays strong in victory Tuesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/25/2015) Nationals starter Stephen Strasburg continued his recent run of dominance with a strong outing against the Padres on Tuesday. The hard-throwing righty went six innings, allowing two runs on two hits. He allowed one walk and struck out seven in the 8-3 victory.

Strasburg (8-6, 4.14 ERA) was solid in this one. The only runs he allowed came on a two-run home run by Jedd Gyorko in the second inning, which actually gave the Padres a brief 2-0 lead. But the Nationals rallied back for the victory.

In four starts since returning from the disabled list, Strasburg is 3-1 with a 1.73 ERA.


Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg remains on roll against Rockies


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2015) Nationals starter Stephen Strasburg has been either injured or underperforming for so long that it was hard to remember the pitcher many believed to be the premier prospect in the sport.

Strasburg, however, continued to show glimpses of his potential Wednesday night in a hitter's paradise, no less. He held the host Rockies to just one unearned run on two hits in seven innings with no walks and five strikeouts.

The only run he allowed came off a wild pitch in the second inning, after which he retired 16 of the last 17 batters he faced.

Strasburg has yielded only five runs in his last 35 2/3 innings to send his ERA tumbling from 6.55 to 4.22.


Nationals' Stephen Strasburg takes tough-luck loss on Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/14/2015) Nationals right-hander Stephen Strasburg fired six strong innings against the Giants on Thursday. He allwed two runs on seven hits, walking two and striking out eight. 

Strasburg (6-6, 4.62 ERA) was given a 1-0 lead before he even took the mound in the first inning. But he gave the lead right back with two runs in the bottom half of the first. The Nationals went on to lose the game 3-1.

The hard-throwing Strasburg was able to settle in after that, however, as he put up zeroes the rest of the way. Unfortunately for him, the Nationals were unable to do much against Ryan Vogelsong and the Giants' bullpen.

This was Strasburg's second start since returning from the disabled list. He has allowed a total of three runs in 13 innings over the two outings.


Nationals' Stephen Strasburg comes off DL with win


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(8/8/2015) Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg came off the disabled list on Saturday and took the mound for the first time since July 4. 

Strasburg returned with a win over Colorado on Saturday, allowing one run over seven innings.

"He didn't look like he was coming off the DL," Rockies right fielder Carlos Gonzalez said, per MLB.com. "His stuff was electric [Saturday]. His fastball was moving a lot with velocity and his breaking ball was really good, too. It's really sharp. It looks like it's going to be around the strike zone and then it goes down quick to the ground. As soon as you see, you already swung the bat and you get yourself in trouble."

Strasburg allowed three hits and didn't walk a batter. He hasn't allowed more than two walks in a game since his first start of the year, on April 9. Strasburg struck out a season-high 12 and improved to 6-5. 


Nationals P Stephen Strasburg set to start Saturday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2015) Matt Williams has confirmed that Nationals right-hander Stephen Strasburg will start Saturday against Colorado.

Strasburg is coming off an oblique strain that has prevented him from pitching since July 4. Injuries have limited him to 13 starts this season and have contributed to his poor performance. He returns with a 5.16 ERA that would be easily the worst of his career if maintained.


Nationals' Williams indicates Strasburg will return Saturday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2015) Nationals manager Matt Williams gave a strong indication Thursday starting pitcher Stephen Strasburg will return from the 15-day disabled list to start Saturday vs. Colorado, according to MASNsports.com.

"We've got some options, certainly his day falls Saturday, but he'll go out and do his towel drills today and make sure," Williams said. "So we'll have a better idea after he's done with that. He felt OK coming out of the bullpen so we have to make sure that he's good today and then we can decide for sure. But his day certainly falls on Saturday."


Nationals' Stephen Strasburg to throw bullpen session on Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/4/2015) Nationals starter Stephen Strasburg is set to throw a bullpen session on Wednesday, the next step in his recovery from an oblique strain. Strasburg threw an impressive rehab start on Monday, striking out 11 batters in 5 2/3 innings with Triple-A Syracuse.

"I felt good. My stuff is there," Strasburg said, per CSN Washington DC. "Just try to keep doing the same things and working on the stuff I’ve been doing. It’s going in the right direction."

Strasburg came out of that start feeling good, and the Nationals will determine whether he needs another rehab start or if he's good to return from the DL, following his bullpen session on Wednesday.

"When you have 11 strikeouts you’re doing something right," manager Matt Williams said. "It shows command for getting ahead in the count. We rely on the people that see him pitch, as well, beyond the stat sheet. Command for his breaking ball as there. Changeup off the fastball was there. And the fastball sat at 95, 96 and touched 98, so that’s all positive things for him moving forward. It means he’s feeling good and he’s got no apprehension letting the ball go."

This season, Strasburg is 5-5 with a 5.16 ERA in 13 starts for the Nationals. He has been on the disabled list twice so far this season.
