      Nationals' Stephen Strasburg: Ready for Friday's start

      The Washington Nationals are listing Stephen Strasburg (forearm) as their probable starter for Friday's game against the Giants, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.Though he notched double-digit strikeouts for the third time this season in his last outing June 1 against the Braves, Strasburg needed 107 pitches to record 20 outs and complained of cramps in his left (non-throwing) arm afterward. Thanks to off days Monday and Thursday this week, Strasburg had a little more time than usual to recover from the heavy workload, and after completing his pre-start bullpen session without incident, he won't miss a turn through the rotation. Strasburg is scheduled to oppose Andrew Suarez in the series opener in Washington.
