Pitcher Stephen Strasburg gave up a two-run home run to Ruben Tejada, but otherwise looked fine for his first time on the mound in 2013. Strasburg got two innings of work and was hitting the mid 90′s with his fastball. The Nats didn’t play many of their established veterans, but the few that did play looked good.
Mets pitching prospect Zack Wheeler threw two scoreless innings and looked very good. Fantasy baseball owners should keep tabs on this kid because he’s going to get called up at some point this season. The team plans to have him open the season in Triple-A.
Pitcher Jordan Zimmermann will be getting the start Sunday afternoon when the Nats face the Miami Marlins.
