Another day, another ETA for Nationals pitching prospect Stephen Strasburg.
MLB.com, citing a team source, reports the Nats plan to have Strasburg debut during the club’s June 8-10 home series against the Pirates. The website reports the actual date will be announced less than a week in advance.
On Tuesday, reporters speculated Strasburg would make his first start June 4 at home against the Reds.
Strasburg is scheduled to start for Triple-A Syracuse on Saturday. Given the latest speculation, he would make one more start for Syracuse, at Buffalo on June 3, then be ready for the Pirates series.
