STEPHEN STRASBURG WILL GET THE 6TH SEPT START
Tue, 06 Sep 2011 02:18 PM EDT

The manager for Washington Davey Johnson said on Tuesday that he has confirmed plans for Stephen Strasburg which goes towards making his first start in 2011’s Nationals on the 6th of September. He will start as a Double-A for Harrisburg this Thursday and is expected that his final appearance at a rehab game since he underwent surgery to repair a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his elbow will now be OK.

If all of this goes as planned then Strasburg should be able to make his much anticipated start against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Johnson said “I’ve got a spot open for him,”

In addition Johnson also said that the left hander Tom Milone will also probably be recalled from the Triple A Syracuse in order to start against the New York Mets this Saturday. Milone will then replace Jordan Zimmermann who cant throw over 160 innings in the first full season since his surgery. But the plan according to Johnson is that both Strasburg and Milone will rotate.

Johnson said “This is the time of year you look at young players,” “That’s what you do at this time of year when you’re not in a pennant race. And unfortunately, we’re not in one.”

However it wasn’t clear how exactly Johnson will go about making room for the rotation for both these star pitchers. Strasburg was the first pick in 2009’s draft with a 5-3 and ERA of 2.91 with 92 strikeouts and 68 innings as a rookie in 2010. He has proved that his last rehab at the Triple A Syracuse on Saturday will help him regain his winning ways. His fastball was lately clocked in at 98 mph as he had struck out seven in the five innings. Las Vegas odds  He then gave up one earned run on the two hits with no walks against Rochester. Scores

Johnson said “He was getting all beat up there in Hagerstown,” “I said, ‘Just get your work in, throw free and easy.’ And he went down and had a great outing.”

Strasburg said on Saturday that he was working on his curveball but was encouraged by the fact that he could really “pound the zone”

Strasburg said “The goal right now is to go out there, feel good, feel good the next day and do it all over again in five days,” “My goal right now is to go into the offseason healthy and be ready to go for spring training.”
