Craig Stammen will start Tuesday
Craig Stammen, demoted to Class AAA Syracuse on the day Stephen Strasburg made his first career start, will start tomorrow for the Nationals. Stammen will effectively replace John Lannan, whom the Nationals optioned to Class AA Harrisburg last week.
In 12 starts for the Nationals, Stammen went 1-2 with a 5.43 ERA. The Nationals sent him to the minors June 8, the game after he allowed the Cincinnati Reds one earned run in 6 2/3 innings.
In three starts for Syracuse, Stammen went 2-0 and allowed five earned runs in 20 innings, a 2.25 ERA, while walking three and striking out 10. In his second start, Stammen came within one out of throwing a seven-inning no-hitter.
The Nationals will make a corresponding roster move either after tonight's game or tomorrow upon officially calling up Stammen.
