• Quotes:

- Livan Hernandez on Sirius/XM's MLB Network Radio's "Power Alley":

Livan Hernandez: "He's a great guy, great kid, and you know, he's very professional. And you can see, it's unbelievable, he's got five pitches he can throw for a strike any time, and I think he knows how to pitch, that's what's most important. You can throw hard, 101mph, 102mph, but the most important part...he impressed me a lot, is the way he pitches...don't be surprised you see the guy win a couple Cy Youngs, and he's going to lead the league in strikeouts when he gets a full season. He's unbelievable..."

- Jim Riggleman From Pregame Press Conference:

Strasburg As A Strikeout Pitcher/Team That Doesn't K Much?

Jim Riggleman: "I think if Stephen can get them to put the ball in play, put the ball on the ground, we'd certainly take that, but I think we'll probably be somewhere in between. He's somewhat of a strikeout pitcher, they don't strike out, the result will probably be something in between. Maybe he'll strike out a few more White Sox than they normally strike out, but maybe he'll strike out less people than he normally does, but the point is to get them out. And I think Stephen's really good about that, he's trying to get the hitter out, he's not looking to strike people out, and I think that allows him to get an out early in the count, but once he's got two strikes he might try to put somebody away, but in a perfect world he would like to get an out within two or three pitches."
