Stephen Strasburg's next start will be Sunday
The Nationals have scheduled Stephen Strasburg to start Sunday against the St. Louis Cardinals, the encore to his highly anticipated Tuesday debut against the Detroit Tigers. Livan Hernandez, making his first appearance this spring, will follow Strasburg in the game.
Drew Storen, the other first-round draft pick in camp, will not pitch until tomorrow. Storen had been scheduled to pitch yesterday in Jupiter, Fla., and he would have if the Nationals had forced the Cardinals to bat in the bottom of the ninth. Because he warmed up in the bullpen, the Nationals want to give him an extra day before he pitches.
Storen made the bus ride 100 miles to and from Jupiter only to not play, but he didn't mind. "It was worth it to watch Albert Pujols take batting practice," he said.
