Nats Careful Not to Tax that Stras
Five innings of work, two hits, no runs, no walks, and four strikeouts. Not bad for a guy who hasn’t pitched in the big leagues in over a year. Rumors of his minor league dominance were legitimate as he managed to hit 99 mph and embarrass more than a few Dodgers with biting curves and 90 mph change-ups.
Steve didn’t quite resemble the guy who dominated on June 8, 2010, but for one night, he was good enough. The long road back to that night is still many months away; the Nats stated he’ll be limited to a workload similar to that of Jordan Zimmerman, who underwent “Tommy John” surgery in 2009. That would mean we’ll have approximately 25 starts and 160 innings to witness Steve’s magic in 2012. For a Nats team that is aching for some relevancy in the midst of another challenging season, they’ll take it.
