Livan Hernandez's next start a clue for Stephen Strasburg's immediate future
Livan Hernandez started in a minor league game this afternoon, and his action from now on this spring will come on the major league side of camp. Hernandez has been throwing on the same day as Stephen Strasburg, who will start tonight. Does Hernandez's move to only major league games mean the end of Strasburg's time in major league camp?
"No," Mananger Jim Riggleman said. "We're going to meet tomorrow -- myself and Mike [Rizzo] and the rest of the guys, Bob Boone, Davey Johnson, our major league staff -- and put some names together as some moves we're going to be making in the next two or three days. Some might be made Monday. That will be one of the discussions we have, I'm sure."
While Riggleman did not commit to Strasburg heading over to the minor league side of camp, Hernandez's schedules strongly suggests that's exactly what will happen. An overwhelming amount of evidence suggests Strasburg is going to start this year in the minor leagues, and that being the case, the Nationals will need to find innings for the pitchers will are definitely heading north.
