Yahoo!Sports.com's Jeff Passan, "Strasburg’s commandments: the dirty dozen".

"For now, the 21-year-old bides his time in Syracuse, his first start with the Triple-A Chiefs on Friday. Those averse to snow have called the burg a purgatory, and it’s exactly that for Strasburg, whose triple-digit fastball comes with hoopla unseen in baseball for nearly two decades. Even Jason Heyward(notes) can’t compete with him."

MLB.com's Bill Ladson, "Nationals to call up Slaten from Triple-A".

"The Nationals are expected to option left-hander Matt Chico to Double-A Harrisburg and purchase the contract of left-hander Doug Slaten from Triple-A Syracuse on Sunday morning, according to a baseball source."
