Nationals' Stephen Strasburg: Will receive Opening Day nod
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Dusty Baker confirmed Sunday that Strasburg would receive the Opening Day start April 3 against the Marlins, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

Strasburg was always viewed as the favorite for the Opening Day nod after Max Scherzer was slow to ramp up his workload in the spring due to a stress fracture in his finger, so Baker's announcement was merely a formality. After inking a seven-year, $175 million extension with the Nationals last May, the Nationals are hoping for Strasburg to take a leap forward in 2017 after he compiled a 3.60 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 183:44 K:BB ratio over 147.2 innings last season.

Nationals' Stephen Strasburg: Seemingly headed for Opening Day start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Nationals have lined up their rotation in an order that suggests Strasburg will take the mound for Opening Day, MASN Sports reports.

The Nationals likely will wait for their third game to start Max Scherzer, who is making his first Grapefruit League appearance of the year Wednesday. Although it hasn't been officially announced, Strasburg is in line to start Opening Day against Miami, with Tanner Roark handling the second game.

Nationals' Stephen Strasburg: Pitches into fifth inning Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strasburg allowed two runs on four hits and a walk while striking out three over 4.1 innings during Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Marlins.

He tossed 79 pitches in his longest spring outing to date and while Strasburg's 7.20 ERA so far is ugly, his 12:2 K:BB in 12.1 innings is a better reflection of how he's looked during the exhibition schedule. The 28-year-old is on pace to be ready for Opening Day.

Nationals' Stephen Strasburg: Strikes out five Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strasburg allowed two runs on three hits while striking out five over four innings in Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Tigers.

The Washington Post reports that Nats pitching coach Mike Maddux spotted on video Strasburg was tipping his pitches in his last outing, and after making a slight adjustment to how he grips and sets the ball from the stretch, the right-hander posted much better results Monday. "I always have a tendency to tip pitches. I think it's just the way I grip the ball," he said. "My hands are pretty big, and if I'm not paying attention, I do little things. They've got everything on video, so they know all the little things that I do." The 28-year-old has only topped 200 innings once in a season during his career, so staying healthy remains the biggest obstacle between Strasburg and a Cy Young-caliber campaign.

Nationals' Stephen Strasburg: Roughed up Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strasburg got hammered for six runs on seven hits and a walk in two innings, striking out one, during Wedmesday's Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals.

Still working exclusively from the stretch, Strasburg was topping out at 97 mph with his fastball, so the results were less important than the process in this one. Max Scherzer's finger injury likely means Strasburg will take the bump on Opening Day for the Nats, and he's got plenty of time to round into form before then.
