Analysis: Strasburg (1-1) got 14 consecutive outs in one stretch and allowed only three hits, including Marcell Ozuna's homer in the seventh. The right-hander's lone walk was to the last batter he faced. Strasburg lasted 4 1-3 innings in his previous start, a 6-2 loss to Atlanta on Sunday, and he entered Thursday 0-1 with a 6.10 ERA. But with the temperature 67 degrees at the unusual 4:05 p.m. start, and shadows creeping across the diamond, he was much better against Miami, mixing a 95-96 mph fastball with a seemingly unhittable changeup.
Apr. 1 3:22 PM PT4:22 PM MT5:22 PM CT6:22 PM ET18:22 ET22:22 GMT6:22 3:22 PM MST5:22 PM EST5:52 PM VEN2:22 UAE (+1)5:22 PM CT-Strasburg struck out 10 but was otherwise fairly pedestrian in Monday's win over the Mets, allowing four runs and four hits in five innings.
Analysis: If you own Strasburg, you're going to have a leg up in the strikeouts category more often than not. He fanned an average of 9.39 batters per nine innings last season.
Mar. 19 7:10 PM PT8:10 PM MT9:10 PM CT10:10 PM ET22:10 ET2:10 GMT10:10 7:10 PM MST9:10 PM EST9:40 PM VEN6:10 UAE (+1)8:10 PM CT-Washington manager Matt Williams said Strasburg will make his third straight opening-day start for the Nationals.
Analysis: Williams picked Strasburg in part because "of his experience. He's done it before ... And he's earned it." Williams says Gio Gonzalez and Jordan Zimmermann will follow in the rotation. Doug Fister is set to be the fourth starter if he can get ready in time after being sidelined by elbow inflammation.
Feb. 16 12:33 PM PT1:33 PM MT2:33 PM CT3:33 PM ET15:33 ET20:33 GMT4:33 1:33 PM MST3:33 PM EST4:03 PM VEN0:33 UAE (+1)2:33 PM CT-Strasburg threw his first formal bullpen session of spring training Sunday. He said afterward his arm is doing "great" after offseason surgery to remove bone chips from his right elbow.
Analysis: The Washington Nationals right-hander focused much of his session on his timing out of the stretch, hoping baserunners will no longer consider him an easy mark when eyeing a steal of second.
