Nationals' Stephen Strasburg: Strikes out seven in win over Braves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strasburg (12-4) allowed three runs on eight hits and two walks across 5.1 innings to earn the win Thursday against the Braves. He struck out seven.

Strasburg scattered baserunners through the early innings before struggling in the sixth, when he allowed two runs on two hits and a walk before leaving with one out. He ensured himself the win with his own bat, as he drove in five runs on three hits at the dish to help his club pull away. Strasburg came in with 13.1 scoreless innings over his last two turns, so while this was an acceptable performance, it was a step down from his recent results. He'll look to bounce back next week at home against the Rockies.

Nationals' Stephen Strasburg: Throws six shutout frames
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strasburg (11-4) tossed six scoreless innings while allowing seven hits with one walk and six strikeouts to earn a victory against the Phillies on Friday.

The 30-year-old began the second half the same way he ended the first -- shutting out the opposing team for at least six frames. Strasburg has won four straight games, posting a 2.39 ERA during that stretch. He has a 3.46 ERA, 1.05 WHIP, .219 batting average against and 144 strikeouts in 122.1 innings this season, while his 11 wins leads the National League. Strasburg will pitch next in a key game at the Braves on Thursday.

Nationals' Stephen Strasburg: Tosses 7.1 scoreless frames
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strasburg (10-4) recorded 14 strikeouts across 7.1 innings while allowing two hits and two walks to earn a victory against the Marlins on Wednesday.

In addition to the season-high 14 strikeouts, this was the first time Strasburg reached double-digit whiffs since May 28. It was also the first time he didn't give up any runs in an outing since April 4. Strasburg is 10-4 with a 3.64 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 138 strikeouts in 116.1 innings this season. Assuming the Nationals don't change their rotation over the All-Star break, Strasburg will pitch next at the Phillies on Friday.

Nationals' Stephen Strasburg: Allows four runs in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strasburg (9-4) allowed four runs on seven hits with no walks across seven innings to earn the win Thursday against the Marlins. He struck out four.

Strasburg refrained from walking a batter and only allowed one extra-base hit, but Miami pieced together a three-run inning in the second and added another in the fifth in what could have easily been a better start. Still, he came away with his fifth win in the last six outings and his control was impressive. Strasburg will take a middling 3.88 ERA into his next start at home against this same Marlins club, likely to happen Wednesday.

June 22, 2019 02:52 PM
Nationals' Stephen Strasburg: Wins eighth game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strasburg (8-4) allowed three runs on five hits with five strikeouts and three walks across six innings to earn a victory against the Braves on Friday.

This was a decent way to bounce back after yielding six runs on four homers in his last outing. Strasburg is 5-1 in his last seven starts, but he owns a 4.00 ERA mostly because he had two poor appearances during that stretch. Strasburg has a 3.79 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 120 strikeouts in 102 innings this season. He will face the Marlins on the road Thursday in his next start.

Nationals' Stephen Strasburg: Will start Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strasburg is scheduled to start Friday's series opener against the Braves, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

Strasburg previously lined up to start Thursday versus the Phillies, but two postponements to begin the week plus Wednesday's doubleheader led to a change of plan. The 30-year-old threw a bullpen session earlier Wednesday, so the news doesn't come as much of a surprise. Erick Fedde will start Thursday's series finale for the Nationals.

Nationals' Stephen Strasburg: Could start Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strasburg threw a bullpen session Wednesday, suggesting his next start could come Friday against the Braves, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

Strasburg is currently listed as the probable starter for Thursday's series finale against the Phillies, but he typically throws a bullpen two days before his scheduled start, so it appears the Nationals could be shuffling up their rotation. If Strasburg's start is pushed back to Friday, either Austin Voth or Erick Fedde would likely make a spot start Thursday.

Nationals' Stephen Strasburg: Saddled with fourth loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strasburg (7-4) permitted six runs on nine hits and one walk over five innings in a 10-3 loss to the Diamondbacks on Saturday. He struck out five.

The Diamondbacks got to Strasburg early, scoring in each of the first four innings with the aid of four solo home runs. Strasburg yielded homers to Ketel Marte and Adam Jones in the first inning, Christian Walker in the second, and Marte for the second time in the fourth. He put up his only zero in the fifth inning and was removed after 95 pitches. The 30-year-old still has a 3.75 ERA, 1.06 WHIP, and 115:24 K:BB and will look to get back on track Thursday at home against the Phillies.

Nationals' Stephen Strasburg: Earns seventh win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strasburg (7-3) picked up the win against the Padres on Sunday, allowing one run on six hits in seven innings. He struck out six and did not issue any walks.

Strasburg was lifted for a pinch hitter with the score tied 1-1 in the eighth inning and was buoyed by four consecutive home runs from Washington hitters to pick up his seventh victory of the season. After suffering back-to-back losses in mid-May, the 30-year-old has now won four of his last five starts to improve to 7-3 on the season. He'll carry a 3.36 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 110/23 K:BB into his next scheduled start against Arizona on Saturday.

Nationals' Stephen Strasburg: Wins 100th career game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strasburg (6-3) allowed five runs on five hits with six strikeouts and three walks across five innings while earning a victory against the White Sox on Tuesday.

Six of the eight batters that reached against Strasburg did so in the first two frames. He settled down after that, and in the fifth, Strasburg worked around runners on second and third with no outs to yield no runs. That was a turning point in the game, as the Nationals came back to take the lead in the bottom of the fifth. The 30-year-old is 6-3 with a 3.54 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 104 strikeouts in 84 innings this season. This was Strasburg's 100th career win. He is scheduled to pitch next at the Padres on Sunday.

Nationals' Stephen Strasburg: Ties season high with 11 K's
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strasburg (5-3) picked up the win in Tuesday's 5-4 victory over Atlanta, allowing two runs on five hits and two walks over seven innings while striking out 11.

The strikeouts tied his season high, as Strasburg turned in his fourth straight quality start and eighth of the year in 12 trips to the mound. The right-hander now sports a 3.19 ERA and 98:20 K:BB through 79 innings.

Nationals' Stephen Strasburg: Seven strong innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strasburg allowed three runs (two earned) on five hits and two walks while striking out five across seven innings Thursday against the Mets. He did not factor into the decision.

Strasburg cruised through his first four innings of work as he allowed only one walk and two hits. However, his control wavered a bit towards the end of his effort as he hit a batter, threw a wild pitch and walked a hitter -- all in the sixth frame. Overall, this was still a strong start for Strasburg as he did not surrender an extra-base hit and worked deep into the game. He has now completed more than six innings in six of his past seven outings. Strasburg will look to keep his strong performance going in his next start, currently scheduled for Tuesday at Atlanta.

Nationals' Stephen Strasburg: Stifles Cubs for fourth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strasburg (4-3) picked up the win Saturday, allowing two runs (one earned) on four hits over eight innings while striking out seven in a 5-2 victory over the Cubs.

The right-hander was in firm control all night, generating 15 swinging strikes among his 93 pitches (69 total strikes). Strasburg has delivered five quality starts in his last six trips to the mound, and he'll take a 3.32 ERA and eye-popping 82:16 K:BB through 65 innings into his next outing Thursday, on the road against the Mets.

Nationals' Stephen Strasburg: Pitches well in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strasburg (3-3) tossed six innings against the Dodgers on Sunday, taking the loss in spite of allowing only two runs on four hits. He walked a pair and struck out seven.

Strasburg's effective performance was overshadowed by opposing starter Hyun-Jin Ryu holding Washington hitless for 7.1 innings. Nonetheless, the outing marked Strasburg's fourth quality start in his last five appearances -- a stretch in which he has racked up 47 strikeouts in 34.1 innings. Unfortunately, Washington's offense has provided Strasburg only 10 runs of support in those five starts and has been shut out in his last two outings. He'll carry a 3.63 ERA and 1.05 WHIP into his next start Saturday versus the Cubs.

Nationals' Stephen Strasburg: Strong outing turns sour
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strasburg (3-2) allowed four earned runs on six hits and two walks while striking out 11 across 6.2 innings to take the loss Tuesday against the Brewers.

Strasburg showed no signs of trouble until the seventh inning, when he allowed four of the first six batters he faced to reach base. That culminated in a bases-loaded double by Lorenzo Cain, accounting for three of Strasburg's four earned runs, with the final earned run coming after he was pulled from the contest. However, there were still plenty of positives to take away from Strasburg's performance, as he generated 21 swinging strikes and held the dangerous Brewers lineup without a home run. Off to a strong start to the season from a skills perspective, Strasburg will draw another tough assignment in his next start at the Dodgers.

Nationals' Stephen Strasburg: Reaches 1,500 strikeouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strasburg allowed one earned run on six hits and two walks while striking out nine across 6.2 innings Thursday against the Cardinals. He did not factor into the decision.

Strasburg became the fastest player to reach 1,500 career strikeouts, requiring just 1,272.1 innings to do so. He also turned in a strong outing otherwise, limiting the Cardinals to no extra-base hits while generating 23 called strikes and 18 swinging strikes. Early on this season, Strasburg has proven capable of consistently working deep into games, as he has reached six or more innings pitched in six of his seven starts. He'll look to keep things going, though he does draw a tough matchup at Milwaukee on Tuesday.

Nationals' Stephen Strasburg: Strikes out nine in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strasburg allowed two runs on four hits with nine strikeouts and only one walk across seven innings in a no-decision against the Padres on Saturday.

The only runs Strasburg yielded came via the home run, which has been an issue for him this season. He's tossed up six homers in six starts, giving him a career-high 1.4 HR/9 this year. However, the plethora of home runs Strasburg has allowed might not be a reason to be too concerned because his flyball percentage is actually lower than it was a year ago. The reason for the increased homers allowed is his HR/FB is about seven percent higher than it was in 2018, which could fall back down to earth in a larger sample size. Overall, Strasburg is 2-1 with a 3.82 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 48 strikeouts in 37.2 innings this season. His next scheduled start is Thursday at home against the Cardinals.

Nationals' Stephen Strasburg: Dominant in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strasburg (2-1) struck out 11 and gave up just two hits and two walks over eight scoreless innings in a win over the Marlins on Sunday.

Strasburg cruised through Miami with 20 swinging strikes and 23 called strikes. The Marlins are not the toughest matchup, but this was an encouraging outing after the 30-year-old gave up five home runs over his last two starts. The right-hander, who has a 4.11 ERA over five starts this season, will make his next start Saturday against the Padres.

Nationals' Stephen Strasburg: Serves up three homers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strasburg (1-1) took the loss against the Giants on Tuesday by giving up four runs on six hits over six innings. He struck out eight and did not walk a batter.

Strasburg allowed only two hits through the first four frames but then served up three home runs during the fifth and sixth innings to take his first loss of the year. The 30-year-old has now given up five homers and 10 total runs across his last two starts. Strasburg will carry a 5.56 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 28:7 K:BB into Sunday's matchup at Miami.

Nationals' Stephen Strasburg: Struggles through four innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strasburg gave up six runs on six hits and four walks across four innings during Tuesday's win over the Phillies. He recorded three strikeouts and did not factor in the decision.

Strasburg ran into trouble during the third inning as he gave up a leadoff homer to Maikel Franco and then issued two walks before serving up a three-run shot to Bryce Harper. The 30-year-old allowed two runs on two hits and two walks the following inning, leading to his early exit. Strasburg will look for a rebound effort next Tuesday against the Giants.
