MLB.com's Bill Ladson: DC GM Mike Rizzo Says June 8th For Stephen Strasburg's Debut.

According to a post game Twitter report from MLB.com's Bill Ladson (@washingnats), the Washington Nationals' '09 No.1 overall pick, pitcher Stephen Strasburg, will make his MLB debut on June 8th in Nationals Park in the first game of a three game series against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Here's the actual Tweet: 

"#Nats RHP Stephen Strasburg will make his MLB debut on June 8 against the Bucs, according to GM Mike Rizzo..."

The Nationals announced over the weekend that Strasburg would make one more minor league start for the Syracuse Chiefs on June 3rd in Buffalo, NY, after which they'll have to make a decision on who's off the 25-man roster to make room for the future Nats' ace, who's now thrown 50.1 IP in 10 starts, 5 each at Double-A Harrisburg and Triple-A Syracuse, in which the 21-year-old right hander is (6-2) with a 1.43 ERA and .157 BAA, having allowed 28 hits, 12 BB (2.15 BB/9) 14 R, 8 ER and collected 60 K's (10.73 K/9).
