Yankees Prospect Strasburg Dazzles

leave a comment »

Through four starts with the Washington Nationals, 22 year old phenom Stephen Strasburg has been nothing short of diminating–leaving Yankee fans thrilling at the prospect’s success even though he won’t be eligible for the Yankees roster until 2017. 

Through his first 4 starts, Strasburg has not given up more than 2 runs in any start going 2-1 with a 1.78 ERA in just over 25 innings pitched.  He’s also struck out 41 batters.  Many look at him as the next great pitcher in the major leagues.   However, baseball’s odd and complexing free agency rules mean that the Yankees will need to compete with both the Red Sox and Mets to sign the pitcher when he is finally allowed to leave Washington.

For Yankee fans there’s little they can do except wait and follow their prospect as he develops and learns to pitch at an even higher level.  In the meantime, baseball fans in Washington should have a great show for the next half dozen years.
