Report: Stephen Strasburg To Make Major League Debut On June 8

At long last, we may have an actual debut date for Stephen Strasburg. Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo reportedly told MLB.com’s Bill Ladson that Strasburg will pitch for the Nationals on June 8 in their first of three home games against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

#Nats RHP Stephen Strasburg will make his MLB debut on June 8 against the Bucs, according to GM Mike Rizzo. I’ll have more on #MLB.com.

Rizzo’s actual quote is as follows:

“Along with [pitching coordinator] Spin Williams and pitching coach Steve McCatty, we had a plan in place since Spring Training [for Strasburg],” Rizzo said. “We believe he is ready to go. We like that Stephen could bounce back from touch [sic.] outings.”

Everyone might want to hurry and get their tickets before that game is inevitably sold out.
