Feb. 24 4:01 AM PT5:01 AM MT6:01 AM CT7:01 AM ET7:01 ET12:01 GMT20:01 5:01 AM MST7:01 AM EST7:31 AM VEN16:01 UAE6:01 AM CT-Strasburg is healthy, yet something keeps reminding him of the time he was recovering from Tommy John surgery. For three consecutive days, Strasburg fielded questions about his contract status. The Washington Nationals right-hander is set to be a free agent after the season, and while he doesn't see that as a mental hurdle, he bristles at repeatedly talking about it.
Analysis: Strasburg is feeling good early in spring training and is trying not to approach his contract year differently than any other season. For now, his focus is on pitching and preparing and letting agent Scott Boras handle the contract situation. Strasburg is in control of a lot of what happens in the next several months.
