Stephen Strasburg goes five innings Wednesday

Nationals starter Stephen Strasburg allowed one earned run on two hits and no walks while striking out four in Wednesday's matchup against the Houston Astros.

Fantasy Impact

Strasburg threw more breaking pitches last year and ended up having one of the best seasons of his career. He agreed to a seven-year, $245 million contract in the offseason so expectations are high heading into 2020.

Stephen Strasburg agrees to deal to return to Nationals

Stephen Strasburg has agreed to a deal to re-sign with the Washington Nationals, according to a report from MLB insider Jon Heyman. Jeff Passan adds that the deal is for $245 million over seven years.

Fantasy Impact

It was known coming into the offseason that the Nationals wanted to re-sign Strasburg, but the question was whether or not they would be able to afford him once he hit the open market and started receiving offers from other teams. Free-agent Zack Wheeler agreed to a five-year, $118 million contract with the Phillies last week, and Strasburg was expected to easily surpass that amount while falling short of what will likely be a record-breaking contract for fellow free agent starting pitcher Gerrit Cole. $245 million is now the likely starting point in any negotiation for Cole.

Stephen Strasburg meeting with Yankees Wednesday

Stephen Strasburg is set to meet with the New York Yankees on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Strasburg will be the latest top free agent SP to meet with the Yankees after the Bombers held a meeting with Gerrit Cole earlier this week. New York seems to have concerns that both Cole and Strasburg are more interested elsewhere, but the Yankees certainly have shown an ability to write a check that's been hard to refuse in the past. Strasburg would be negatively impacted by a move to the American League, much less the AL East, but he would still be an elite arm come draft day.

Stephen Strasburg declines qualifying offer

Stephen Strasburg rejected his one-year, $17.8 million qualifying offer.

Fantasy Impact

As expected. Strasburg now has draft pick compensation tied to his contract status but that won't be an issue for the World Series MVP. He's going to land a mammoth contract anyways.

Stephen Strasburg receives qualifying offer from Nats

The Nationals extended a one-year, $17.8 million qualifying offer to Stephen Strasburg.

Fantasy Impact

Strasburg opted out of the final four years of his contract and is now set to test free agency. The World Series MVP should do very well for himself this winter.
