Should Strasburg stay in Harrisburg for one more start?

Most sources are reporting that Strasburg will be promoted to Syracuse soon, though one unnamed source in a recent Post article said there was no promotion yet.

Should he be promoted?

My personal thinking is they should keep him in Harrisburg for one more start, so he can show that he's "learned" from his last start. That being said, reports are he was getting squeezed on the strike zone (though none of those reports have commented on whether the Altoona pitcher was getting squeezed as well), and his defense didn't help him out a few times.

I think if he is promoted now, it is in essence to rewarding him for a so-so performance and doesn't show that he will be held to performance standards. The talking point before the game is he'd be promoted assuming the weather held (meaning he pitched), and he pitched well. And I think the second of those two is questionable. Given the weather, warming up twice, tough strike zone and lack of defense one can readily make the case he pitched well.

Thoughts? Should he be promoted? Is it time for him to face the more professional and seasoned AAA hitters?
