News: Strasburg suffered another dismal night in Miami on Tuesday. Impact: Strasburg allowed six runs and eight hits in four innings. He fell to 2-3 at Marlins Park with an ERA of 8.61. His next start is versus the Cards.(STATS, 11:56pm)

News: Strasburg got roughed up Tuesday by the Marlins, giving up six runs on eight hits and three walks, while striking out five in just four innings. Impact: He needed 81 pitches to get through four innings, and seemed to be getting an awful lot of the zone on certain pitches, specifically a Giancarlo Stanton home run that has yet to land. Strasburg was dynamite in his last outing, so his owners know what he's capable of. This was just the fifth time in his career that he's given up six-plus runs, and it's certainly possible that he could go the rest of 2014 without doing so again.(RotoWire, )

News: Strasburg struck out 12 in 6 2-3 innings - on a day Washington really needed to rest its relievers - and led the Nationals past the Miami Marlins 7-1 on Thursday for a three-game sweep. Impact: Strasburg (1-1) got 14 consecutive outs in one stretch and allowed only three hits, including Marcell Ozuna's homer in the seventh. The right-hander's lone walk was to the last batter he faced. Strasburg lasted 4 1-3 innings in his previous start, a 6-2 loss to Atlanta on Sunday, and he entered Thursday 0-1 with a 6.10 ERA. But with the temperature 67 degrees at the unusual 4:05 p.m. start, and shadows creeping across the diamond, he was much better against Miami, mixing a 95-96 mph fastball with a seemingly unhittable changeup.(STATS, 6:14pm)

News: Strasburg (1-1) struck out a cool dozen Marlins and allowed just one run on three hits and a walk over 6.2 innings Thursday. Impact: A Marcell Ozuna homer was the only blemish on Strasburg's record as the Nats swept Miami. The star hurler's owners have to be relieved after he allowed 10 runs (seven earned) over 10.1 innings in his first two starts.(RotoWire, )

News: Strasburg's next start will come Thursday against the Marlins, Mark Zuckerman of CSN Washington reports. Impact: Monday's off day will allow manager Matt Williams to move Jordan Zimmermann and Strasburg up one day apiece, while also keeping them both on their normal, five-day pitching schedules. Tanner Roark is now set to start Friday against the Braves.(RotoWire, )
Apr 6, 2014
News: Strasburg fell apart Saturday after a fourth-inning Ryan Zimmerman throwing error, eventually allowing six runs (three earned) on eight hits and three walks in 4.1 innings. He struck out six. Impact: He's got a rough 6.10 ERA and 1.74 WHIP through his first two starts (10.1 innings), but if you're looking for a silver lining, his K/9 rate is 13.94. Better days should be ahead for the Nationals' ace.(RotoWire, )

News: Strasburg struck out 10 but was otherwise fairly pedestrian in Monday's win over the Mets, allowing four runs and four hits in five innings. Impact: If you own Strasburg, you're going to have a leg up in the strikeouts category more often than not. He fanned an average of 9.39 batters per nine innings last season.(STATS, 6:22pm)
