Stephen Strasburg To Make Next Rehab Start At Single-A Potomac

Fresh off a two-inning performance in his first rehab start at low Single-A Hagerstown, Stephen Strasburg's next assignment will be to do the same one level up. The team has announced that Strasburg will make his next rehab start in Potomac, home of the Nationals' higher Single-A team.

Strasburg threw in a side session in Washington D.C. on Tuesday, and it was widely expected that Potomac would be the next move. He threw one and two-thirds innings in his first rehab start for Hagerstown on Sunday, striking out four while surrendering a home run. He felt good afterwards, so the decision was made to move him up one level and have him pitch for Potomac.

The Potomac Nationals will face the Myrtle Beach Pelicans at Pfitzner Stadium in Prince William County, Va. at 7:05 on Friday. The team has had issues with the field conditions at time this season, but obviously they aren't enough of a concern to have Strasburg skip the level.
