Strasburg sent down

Washington Nationals Ace of the future was sent down to minor league camp today after striking out eight over four innings in his latest spring training start. The Nationals state that he needs to work on his delivery with runners on base. He seems to be rushing which is taking velocity off his fastball, which was clocked at 98mph today, allowing hitters to catch up with it.

Strasburg will be assigned to double A ball in Harrisburg but might be called up to play in an Exhibition game on April 3rd at Nationals park against the RedSox.

I’m sure in the long run that the time in the minor leagues will help his developmentĀ  and that it has nothing to do with the fact that delaying his major league debut until May or June will save the team millions and give them extra time with who may be the best pitcher in the National League.
