Strasburg Pitches For Hagerstown
Even though Strasburg allowed an uncharacteristic 2 runs, he still showed a mental skill that is key to him becoming a standout major league pitcher: He was able to put his past appearances behind him and move on. Top major league pitchers need to be resilient and should be able to come back stronger and better than ever in their next outing.
The road to recovery is slow but patience is key for how the organization handles Strasburg. Rushing him back too soon will only add further injury and waste one of the greatest talents to ever come through Washington sports...period. However, they appear to be handling him well and everyone is excited about his return to the Washington Nationals rotation.
