The wait is over. It appears that June 8 is the new June 4.

The Nationals issued an announcement stating that their 21-year-old first round pick in 2009 is making his Major League Debut with the Washington Nationals Tuesday June 8 against the Pittsburgh Pirates at Nationals Park.

Strasburg has dominated in minor league play going a combined 6-2 with a 1.43 ERA and 60 strikeouts in 50 1/3 innings for Double-A Harrisburg and Triple-A Syracuse.

Welcome to the big leagues, kid.
