Washington Nationals: Stephen Strasburg To Make Another Triple-A Start June 3rd.

New, 3 comments

According to several credible media sources following the Washington Nationals, the team has announced that its '09 No.1 overall pick and potential future ace, Stephen Strasburg, will make at least one more minor league start on June 3rd in Buffalo, New York's Coca-Cola Field against the New York Mets' Triple-A affiliate, the Buffalo Bisons before he's expected to make his MLB debut during the June 8-10 series against the Pirates in Nationals Park. The 21-year-old right-hander met with some adversity last night, giving up 3 runs in a loss to the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees, but his rise through the minors remains impressive as he's now (6-2) in 10 starts, 5 each for Double-A Harrisburg and Triple-A Syracuse, in which he's thrown 50.1 IP and posted a 1.43 ERA, with a .157 BAA, allowing 28 H, 12 BB (2.15 BB/9) and 14 R, 8 ER, while collecting 60 K's (10.73 K/9).
