Nats GM says no date set for Strasburg call-up

Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo told The Washington Post that he hasn’t set a date for rookie right-hander Stephen Strasburg’s major league debut.

"There’s a window there that I’ve decided, but there’s so many variables still," Rizzo said. "I can’t even pinpoint to the point where I can tell people who really need to know."

Rizzo also hinted that right-hander Drew Storen, a reliever who also was drafted in the first round last June, could debut before Strasburg. There has been speculation that Strasburg will be called up to start in Washington on June 4.
