The Washington Nationals announced today that pitcher Stephen Strasburg has been announced the National League Pitcher of the Month for the month of April.
In five starts this past month, Strasburg posted a 2-0 record with an incredible 1.13 era. He also struck-out a National League best 34 batters and walked just six. In 32 innings of work, he only allowed four earned runs.
For Strasburg, this is just another stepping stone on his way to becoming the best pitcher in the MLB. His fastball is corkscrewing batters into the ground and his curveball is sending batters back to the dugout frustrated.
Strasburg has the ability to win the NL Cy Young award this season. I know! The season is young and I don't want to jinx it either...but, with stuff like his, he has to be the early favorite.
