#1 pick Strasburg moved up to Triple-A Syracuse by Washington

compiled from staff, wire and Washington Nationals info

Stephen Strasburg (MiLB)

Stephen Strasburg dominated Double-A so much that now he has been promoted to move up to Triple-A Syracuse.

Triple-A will be more challenging. He’ll see more veteran and seasoned hitters, tighter strike zones and he’ll play with better players overall.

The Washington Nationals promoted their number 1 overall draft pick to Triple-A Syracuse on Tuesday, keeping him on a pace for his major league debut in the next few weeks or even a month.

Strasburg went 3-1 with a 1.64 ERA in five starts with Double-A Harrisburg, striking out an Eastern League-high 27 and walking six in 22 innings. He ranked first in the league in strikeout-to-walk ratio and strikeouts per nine innings.

Strasburg will make his International League debut Friday when Syracuse hosts the Gwinnett Braves. He will throw 85-90 pitches or six innings, whichever comes first.

The Nationals are being very cautious with their prized pitching prospect, who signed a record four-year, $15.1 million contract last year. Also, for contractual reasons, Washington can save money down the road by postponing Straburg’s major league debut until as long as they can, but rumors around baseball is that they’ll bring him up June.
