Stephen Strasburg's pitching schedule for the month of September was laid out by Washington Nationals manager Davey Johnson in a pre-game press conference with reporters Friday. Strasburg has already made one start, and Johnson said that his next three starts will occur at home.
Via Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post:
The Nationals have planned Stephen Strasburg's scheduled so he will make his four starts back from Tommy John surgery at Nationals Park, at which point he will either make one road start on the season's final day or conclude his major league season.
Those four starts are as follows.
- Last Tuesday vs. Los Angeles Dodgers.
- September 11 vs. Houston Astros (this Sunday)
- September 17 vs. Florida Marlins
- September 23 vs. Atlanta Braves
Strasburg could then start on the road against the Marlins on September 28 on four days rest if so inclined. That decision would ultimately be up to the Nationals.
