Stephen Strasburg wants to stay with Nationals


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/27/2015) Though Stephen Strasburg's agent Scott Boras denied a report that he wanted to be traded in January, the right-handed pitcher said himself that he wants to remain with the Nationals and has no issues with the organization. 

"I haven't said anything like that," Strasburg said in an interview with MLB.com. "I don't feel like that. You have to accept it because that's how the system works. It's like they pick up on any little thing and they twist it. Some people want to turn it to see how many clicks they can get on the webpage."

Strasburg is set to be the ace of a deep rotation that looks to be on of the best in baseball this coming season. With the Nationals winning their second divisional title in the past three seasons, Strasburg said he's happy with the organization. 

"It's the team that drafted me. I love the players here, I love D.C. Winning cures everything, that's for sure," Strasburg said. "I'm excited to be part of the resurgence so far. It's great to see the type of players we bring in here every year. The expectations keep going up and up. Hopefully, we can do big things this year."


Agent Boras denies report Nationals' Strasburg wants to be traded


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/21/2015) Nationals starting pitcher Stephen Strasburg isn't eligible for free agency until after the 2016 season, but a report surfaced this week claiming Strasburg is available in a trade and open to leaving Washington.

However, Strasburg's agent -- Scott Boras -- made sure to deny the report Wednesday at the press conference of another one of his clients -- Max Scherzer, who just signed a seven-year deal with the Nationals.

“We don’t know where that came from,” Boras said Wednesday, per The Washington Times. “Stephen Strasburg wants to play here and wants to be with Max Scherzer and grow. I don’t know who the writer was, but the writer certainly never called us and he never called Stephen.”

The Nationals selected Strasburg with the No. 1 pick in the 2009 MLB draft. He made the All-Star team in 2012 and is 43-30 with a 3.02 ERA in five MLB seasons.
