Stephen Strasburg quiets the haters with dominant showing

Fantasy Impact

Strasburg allowed three hits and walked two. He (as well as the organization) received a lot of criticism this afternoon for their handling of the situation, in regards to who would start this game, but Strasburg was clearly the right decision. He has now made two starts in this series and has yet to give up an earned run. Game 5 will be played back in Washington on Thursday night.

Fantasy Impact

Nationals manager Dusty Baker had said Tanner Roark would start following Tuesday's rainout. Strasburg was believed to be under the weather. However, following some public outcry the former number one overall draft pick is now ready to go. He threw a 25-pitch bullpen on Monday, and is coming off a 10 strikeout performance in Game 1.

Stephen Strasburg to pitch NLDS Game 1

Stephen Strasburg will pitch Game 1 of the NLDS on Friday versus the Chicago Cubs.

Fantasy Impact

Max Scherzer and Gio Gonzalez will pitch the following two games, but the order has not yet been determined. It all depends on how Scherzer's hamstring is feeling, but signs are pointing towards him starting game three. Strasburg was dominant down the stretch in 2017. He'll face off with Cubs starter Kyle Hendricks on Friday.

Stephen Strasburg throws just 83 pitches

Stephen Strasburg received a no-decision on Saturday night, allowing three runs on seven hits over five innings of work.

Fantasy Impact

Strasburg also struck out six and walked just one. With the Nationals basically locked into the number two seed in the National League he threw just 83 pitches. He will likely make one more start before the playoffs, but will probably be on a pitch limit once again. Still, he'll be worth starting in fantasy.
