Bryce Harper, the Washington Nationals hitting phenom and the number-1 overall pick in the 2010 amateur baseball draft, has been recalled by the big league team from Triple-A Syracuse.

Harper as of april 28 is hitting .250 with a homer and three RBI’s in 72 at-bats in Triple-A.

Harper is considered to be the top MLB prospect and only 19 years old.

He is expected to meet the Nationals on their road trip at Los Angeles.

He’ll take the roster spot of third baseman Ryan Zimmerman, who is on the 15-day disabled due to an inflammation in his right shoulder.

Stephen Strasburg, the talk of Major League Baseball all season long, has been placed on the 15-day disabled list by the Washington Nationals. He has an injured right forearm.

The 22-year-old had an MRI done on Sunday and the team wants him to get a second opinion and to do a second procedure to better diagnose the injury.

The Washington Nationals are ready to bring up Stephen Strasburg.

The Nationals have announced that their prized-pitching prospect will make his major-league debut against Pittsburgh on June 8 at Nationals Park.

The Nationals, 24th in MLB attendance, have wasted no time in getting their ticket office ready for Strasburg by offering special deals.

Strasburg, the number 1 pick in last year’s draft overall in the minors is 6-2 with a 1.43 ERA, with 60 strikeouts and 50 1/3 innings.

Strasburg signed a record $15.1 million, four-year contract with the Nationals after he was selected with the number 1 overall pick in the 2009 draft.

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.
