Stephen Strasburg Moves Up To Syracuse For Fifth Rehab Start This Saturday

Get ready, Syracuse, New York.

Washington Nationals phenom pitcher Stephen Strasburg is headed your way this Saturday to take the mound for the Triple-A affiliate Syracuse Chiefs according to the Washington Post's Adam Kilgore. Kilgore got the goods from Nationals manager Davey Johnson.

Stephen Strasburg's next start will be Saturday at Class AAA Syracuse, Davey says.less than a minute ago via Mobile Web Favorite Retweet Reply

 

Unlike never donning a Low-A Hagerstown Suns and Single-A Potomac Nationals jersey in his initial trip through the minors in 2010, Strasburg is familiar with Syracuse, how things are run there and what sort of competition he will be facing. In 2010 Strasburg pitched six games going 4-1 with a 1.08 ERA to much fan fare with the Chiefs before being called up to the big club.

It is just another step in his rehab, but one gets the feeling his return is right on the horizon.
