Strasburg looks strong coming off Tommy John

HAGERSTOWN, Md. — It has been a long, excruciating wait for Nationals fans.  They saw glipses of brilliance in the form of a young highly hyped pitcher.  His name, was Stephen Strasburg and his journey to Cooperstown was put on hold by Tommy John Surgery.

For the last 11 months, Strasburg has been rehabbing a surgically repaired right elbow in hopes of returning to the big leagues and on Sunday, he was one step closer. While playing for the Hagerstown Suns, Strasburg threw 1 inning, striking out 4 batters and allowing a run and his fastball was in the high 90’s in his first rehab appearance.

This is a very good sign for Nationals fans, in that not only is Strasburg close to being back, but that his fastball is still electric.  Although it is still early, Strasburg looked strong, which is always a good sign.
