Projecting Stephen Strasburg
It may be early, but could Stephen Strasburg be looking at a 300-win career?
Strasburg's arrival is already one of the most-hyped debuts in MLB history, with nearly 24/7 coverage, a future Hall-of-Fame catcher hoping to recover from a back injury quickly enough to catch the game, and even the small town of Strasburg, Va., hoping to hold a celebration in honor of a pitcher who has yet to throw a single pitch in the majors.
Pitching against the Pirates, last in the NL in runs scored, should help Strasburg to have a promising debut, but the question that remains is what can one realistically expect from the pitching phenom in the long-term?
To get a look at what may be ahead for Stephen Strasburg, including the most-optimistic projection line, you must be an ESPN Insider.
