"Across the Affiliates 06/15/10" | - Brian Oliver Nationals Farm Authority

A quick look around the Nats' minor league system from Nats Farm Authority's Brian Oliver.

Washington Post - Thomas Boswell - "Can Stephen Strasburg resist the urge to become a strikeout king?"

"Eventually, there'll probably be hundreds of approaches to analyzing Stephen Strasburg's career. But after his first 16 starts as a National -- three in spring training, 11 in the minors and two in the majors -- one largely unexpected, and not entirely welcome trend seems likely: Strasburg will be a strikeout king."

NATIONALS NEWS NETWORK: Dave Nichols - "Strasburg: Ground Outs Are Good, Strikeouts Are Better"

"Will Strasburg continue striking out batters at a rate of 16.1 per nine innings? No, he won't. That's outlandish. But he appears to have several different, legitimate strikeout pitches, which is incredible in its own right."
