In conjunction with the Washington Nationals, the Fredericksburg Nationals have announced that three-time MLB All-Star and 2019 World Series MVP starting pitcher Stephen Strasburg will start Tuesday’s Fredericksburg Nationals game against the Salem Red Sox at FredNats Stadium as part of a minor league rehab assignment.
Strasburg, the first overall pick of the Nationals in the 2009 draft, missed most of the 2021 season and underwent surgery in July of 2021 to alleviate neurogenic thoracic outlet syndrome in his shoulder.
In 246 Major League games, Strasburg holds a record of 113-61, an ERA of 3.21, and has struck out over 1,700 batters in his career.
