The Associated Press reports that Washington Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg has been named the National League’s Player of the Week after winning his first two starts in commanding fashion.
The Washington Nationals’ hard-throwing righty was given the honor Monday. He is 2-0 with 22 strikeouts and a 2.19 ERA in two major league starts.
The 22 strikeouts were the most in the majors last week. Only Karl Spooner of the 1954 Brooklyn Dodgers has fanned more batters in his first two major league starts.
