Post all-star break rotation materializing

Manager Jim Riggleman is close to setting his initial starting five when the Nationals return from the all-star break. On Friday, he revealed that Stephen Strasburg will the start the first game with Livan Hernandez starting the second game. On Saturday, he said the "likelihood" is that Craig Stammen will start the third game, followed by J.D. Martin and Luis Atilano.

So, the rotation will look like the following:

July 16 at Florida: Strasburg
July 17 at Florida: Hernandez
July 18 at Florida: Stammen
July 19 at Cincinnati: Martin
July 20 at Cincinnati: Atilano

Stamen is pitching well tonight. That third spot is deserved.

Would love that starting five a bit better with Zimmermann in there!

The post All-Star rotation should read:

July 16 - Strasburg
July 17 - Hernandez
July 18-20 - TBD.

In addition to Stammen, Martin & Atilano, there is Lannan, Olson, Chico, Martis and Detwiler to be considered as well. This is the point in time where the FO & on-field braintrust can hit the 'reset' button on the pitching staff.
