  • In the 4th inning, Strasburg goes 99, 100, 92, 100, 84, and 98 against Carlos Santana... and walks him.
  • Strasburg walks two players (his first in his ML career) consectutively in the 4th (Santana, Hafner)
  • Although he walks 2 in the 4th, he strikes out the side
  • After the Indians pitch in the top of the 5th, he requests that the ground crew fix the mound due to a large divet where his landing point is off the mound.
  • As of the 5th inning, Strasburg has batters going 0 for 25 when he has 2 strikes on them.
  • AFter the 5th, Strasburg is flirting with history as Carl Spooner holds the record for most Ks in first two starts (27) with the Dodgers. Strasburg has 22 Ks after the inning.
  • The ground crew comes back out in the 6th, as the mound has more issues (video replay shows Strasburg sliding with his right foot badly in the landing area of the mound)

6/14/10 - Strasburg Named MLB NL Player of the Week

Washington Nationals rookie right-hander Stephen Strasburg has been named Bank of America Presents the National League Player of the Week for the period of June 7-13, 2010. Bank of America, the Official Bank of Major League Baseball, is the presenting sponsor of the National League and American League Player of the Week Awards, which reflect Bank of America’s long-standing tradition of promoting and recognizing higher standards of accomplishment.

In his first week in the Major Leagues, Strasburg led all hurlers with 22 strikeouts en route to posting a 2-0 record with a 2.19 ERA. The rookie flamethrower scattered six hits over 12.1 innings of work while walking five. In his Major League debut on June 8th, the top overall pick of the 2009 First-Year Player Draft dazzled, fanning a Nationals record 14 hitters in 7.0 innings without a walk and leading the Nats to a 5-2 victory over visiting Pittsburgh. Strasburg’s total of 14 strikeouts was eclipsed by only two others pitchers in their Major League debuts, behind only Houston’s J.R. Richard (9/5/71 at SF) and Brooklyn’s Karl Spooner (9/22/54 vs. NYG), both of whom struck out 15 in their maiden big-league assignments. The San Diego native became just the fourth rookie to fan 14 or more in a single game without issuing a walk, joining Roger Clemens (16 SO on 8/21/84 vs. KC), Dwight Gooden (16 SO on both 9/12/84 vs. PIT and 9/17/84 at PHI), and Kerry Wood (20 SO on 6/6/98 vs. HOU). On Sunday, the San Diego State product tossed 5.1 innings of two-hit ball while striking out eight and earning the win in his first road start, a 9-4 Interleague victory at Cleveland. Strasburg retired the first two Cleveland hitters on strikeouts, extending his consecutive strikeout streak to nine dating back to his debut start and marking the first time this season that a starter has fanned nine consecutive batters.

Other nominees this past week included Stephen’s teammate Adam Dunn (.455, 4 HR, 1.091 SLG); Cincinnati’s Brandon Phillips (.538, 14 H, 6 R), Jonny Gomes (2 HR, 11 RBI), Scott Rolen (.500, 12 H, 5 RBI) and Arthur Rhodes (0.00, extended M.L.-best 26 scoreless innings streak); Marlon Byrd (.500, 2 HR, 13 H, .767 SLG), Ryan Theriot (.344, 7 R, 5 SB) and Ted Lilly (1-0, 16 IP, 0.56 ERA) of the Chicago Cubs; Florida’s Chris Coghlan (.450, 3 2B, .542 OBP); San Diego’s Adrian Gonzalez (.400, 3 HR, 7 RBI, 5 R) and Wade LeBlanc (2-0, 0.69, 13.0 IP); San Francisco’s Aubrey Huff (.348, 3 HR, 7 RBI) and Matt Cain (2-0, 0.56, 9 SO); and Colorado’s Jason Hammel (2-0, 0.00, 9 SO).

Off-The-Field Notes:

  • STRASBURG SEES FIRST GAME SCRATCH

(From The AP)

Rookie sensation Stephen Strasburg was scratched from his scheduled start for the Washington Nationals on Tuesday night because he had problems warming up his prized and powerful right arm before the game against the Atlanta Braves.

"Stephen was having trouble getting loose in the bullpen, and so I pulled the plug on it," Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo said, adding that he considered it a "precautionary move."

"There's no shooting pains or anything like that in his shoulder or elbow," Rizzo said.

Strasburg was being examined Tuesday by a team doctor and "appropriate tests will be taken after that," including possibly an MRI or X-ray, the GM said, listing the Nationals' top pitcher's status as day to day. In nine starts for Washington, Strasburg is 5-2 with a 2.32 earned-run average, 75 strikeouts and 15 walks in 54 1-3 innings. He has won his past three starts.

Word of Strasburg's difficulty was relayed from pitching coach Steve McCatty to Rizzo by a team trainer, and shortly before the scheduled beginning of Tuesday's game, the Nationals PR staff announced that Strasburg would be replaced on the mound by Miguel Batista.

  • Ticket Resale $49.48 for Strasburg Start That Never Came - Leading up to the game against the Braves in which Strasburg was eventually scratced saw an average resale ticket price of $49.48. That was less than a 1 percent decrease (.48%) from the season average on $49.72, but a 15.6% increase from his last home start on 7-9 vs the Giants. There is, on average, 3 times more transactions for Strasburg home starts then other Nats games.
