Nats Journal: Stephen Strasburg’s encouraging start

Stephen Strasburg’s start Sunday in San Diego was, for personal reasons, one of the biggest of his young career. His talent has always led him to succeed; the 2009 first-overall pick rose quickly to the majors because of it. So how he responded to his first extended failure — his worst slump led to a 6.06 ERA over seven starts entering the game — was important for Strasburg.Read full article >>

Bryce Harper, Stephen Strasburg lead Nationals to win against Padres

SAN DIEGO — Days like Sunday are what make the Washington Nationals such a fascinating team, when the talented roster many believed would contend for a title in 2015 is on full display. In a 10-5 victory over the San Diego Padres, Bryce Harper’s torrid hitting showed no sign of ending. And Stephen Strasburg, the Nationals’ other first overall pick, mired in a career-worst slump, regained some of his confidence on the mound.Read full article >>

Nats Journal: Nationals-Padres discussion thread: Game 39

Stephen Strasburg returns to the mound after his career-worst start, in the midst, too, of his career-worst slump. He has a 6.06 ERA through seven starts, although his fielding independent pitching ERA is 3.46, suggesting he has pitched a tad bit better than the numbers may appear. The Nationals have talked with Strasburg, addressing his pitch selection and reminding him to be aggressive with his stuff. He faces off against Ian Kennedy (2-1, 5.03 ERA). The lineups are here. As always, talk about the game below.Read full article >>

2015 MLB Draft scouting report: Dillon Tate

It's time to start scouting the handful of players who could be taken by the Twins at number six overall in June's draft. Minnesota has a fantastic farm system, both in terms of top-end talent and depth. If there's one hit against the system, and we're really picking nits here, it's that there is no bona fide ace prospect. Perhaps there are pitchers who are part way there in Alex Meyer and Jose Berrios, but there isn't a David Price or a Stephen Strasburg. Understanding this, what better place to start than the top-ranked pitcher in the draft according to Baseball America: Dillon...

Nats Journal: How does Stephen Strasburg overcome his career-worst slump?

DC Sports Bog: Ex-Nats pitcher Tyler Clippard doesn’t understand why people criticize Stephen Strasburg

Stephen Strasburg gave up eight hits and a career-high eight runs in Tuesday’s 14-6 loss at Arizona, pushing his ERA in seven starts this season to 6.06 and doing nothing to quiet his vocal critics.Former Nationals reliever Tyler Clippard, Strasburg’s teammate for five seasons before being traded to Oakland in January, was asked Wednesday if he could explain the criticism Strasburg receives from fans and media alike during an appearance on SiriusXM’s MLB Network Radio with Mike Ferrin and Jim Duquette.Read full article >>

Alarming stretch has Strasburg befuddled

After getting rocked in Arizona on Tuesday, Stephen Strasburg ranks 106th out of 112 MLB starters in ERA, raising more questions about the Nats right-hander.

Alarming stretch has Strasburg searching for answers

PHOENIX — Stephen Strasburg has never pitched like this, not for a somewhat-prolonged stretch. At least not since he came into anyone’s consciousness outside of his hometown of San Diego. Not in three seasons of college. Not in his two months in the minors. Not since he made his major-league debut nearly five years ago.…

Diamondbacks rock Strasburg, Nats, 14-6

PHOENIX — Something isn’t right with Stephen Strasburg. Six weeks and seven starts into the season, his earned run average sits at 6.06. He has pitched past the sixth inning only once. His past two starts, including Tuesday’s clunker, were shorter than four innings. His pitches don’t have the same effect on hitters as they have in the past. A sprained left ankle in spring training appears to have had lingering effects on his mechanics.Read full article >>
