Nationals' Stephen Strasburg fastest starter to 1,500 Ks in MLB history...

7

With all the injuries and time missed, it's even more impressive, right? Stephen Strasburg's 8th K from 18 batters faced tonight was the 1,500th strikeout of his career in 1,272 1/3 IP. That's the fastest to 1500 by a starter in MLB history, in terms of innings pitched, for the 2009 No. 1 overall pick. Congrats, Stephen.
