      Nationals' Stephen Strasburg: Avoids arbitration by agreeing to deal with Nats

      Strasburg has avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $10.4 million deal with the Nationals on Friday, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports. Strasburg's career hasn't exactly gone has planned thus far, but he still possesses the talent to serve as the ace of a pitching staff. He and Scherzer will do so for the Nats in 2016, Strasburg's last before he will be able to test the waters of free agency.

      Nationals' Stephen Strasburg: Had non-cancerous growth removed

      Strasburg had a non-cancerous growth surgically removed from his back about one month ago, according to his agent Scott Boras, Jon Morosi of FOX Sports reports. Recurring upper-back and neck issues hampered Strasburg on and off throughout the season, and it seems the growth may very well have been the cause. Apparently, the growth was "muscular" in origin, and the right-hander is said to be doing well a month removed from surgery. Strasburg managed to perform at an extraordinary level down the stretch despite the issue, posting a 1.90 ERA and 92:8 K:BB after the All-Star break.

      Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg earns 11th win of the season

      Nationals starting pitcher Stephen Strasburg (11-7) finished his season with six sharp innings in Atlanta on Thursday, striking out seven while allowing one walk, six hits and no runs in a winning effort. While he failed to stretch his streak of double-digit-strikeout games to five, Strasburg still ended the campaign on a brilliant run, having given up just five earned runs in his final five outings while putting up a spectacular 57:5 K:BB in 36.1 innings. While it was an injury-shortened season for Strasburg and a disappointing campaign for the Nationals, better things should be in his future.

      Nationals' Stephen Strasburg continues strong second half Saturday

      Nationals starter Stephen Strasburg was dominant again in a no-decision Saturday, striking out 13 Phillies while allowing just one run on three hits and a walk over eight innings. His final line on the season won't look so bad, as Strasburg now has a 3.63 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 148:25 K:BB ratio in 121 1/3 innings, but his 5.16 ERA in 13 starts before the All-Star break likely helped ruin a lot of fantasy seasons, not to mention the Nats' playoff hopes. He'll get one more chance to pad those numbers Thursday in Atlanta.

      Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg continues excellence on Sunday

      Nationals starter Stephen Strasburg continued his stellar run since returning from the DL, striking out 10 and allowing one earned run in seven innings to get the win Sunday against the Marlins. In Strasburg's eight starts since his return, he's had seven quality starts and four double digit-strikeout games while lowering his ERA from 4.76 to 3.81. It might be too late to save the Nationals, but the 27-year-old is at least re-establishing his value as a top starter for 2016.

      Nationals' Stephen Strasburg posts 14-strikeout gem on Tuesday

      Nationals starter Stephen Strasburg (9-7) was absolutely masterful in a 4-0 victory over the Phillies on Tuesday, tying a career best with 14 strikeouts in eight innings. He allowed only one hit and one walk. Strasburg was in vintage form, so much so that he equaled the number of whiffs he tallied in his very first major league game back in June 2010 against the Pirates. The hard-throwing right-hander was tireless and razor-sharp Tuesday, striking out an incredible eight of the last 12 batters he faced, clocking his fastball over 95 miles per hour in his final inning of work, and throwing 77 of his 105 pitches for strikes. Strasburg has now struck out 27 batters over his last two starts and is 5-2 since Aug. 8, when he returned from a disabled list stint that spanned pver a month. He will look to continue his torrid stretch during his next trip against the Marlins at home.
