A veteran right-handed man hit three batters while walking four. Earlier this week, Nationals manager Dave Martinez said the club plans to throw more than 60 pitches with Strasburg doing four innings. He finished on 61 pitches, including 31 strikes, and took the lead at 94 mph against Salem Red Sox.
Strasburg, the 2019 World Series MVP, has invested a total of 26⅔ innings since the start of the 2020 season. He led the NL in 209 innings in the regular season of the Washington title year, then threw another 36⅓ in the postseason 5-0.
Washington rewarded him with a $ 245 million seven-year contract before the 2020 season, but he has made a total of seven starts since then.
