If you couldn’t find yourself an AM radio or don’t follow any baseball writers on Twitter, allow me to re-cap young Strasburg’s first outing:

Total Pitch Count – 25

Total Strikes – 15

Total Hits – 2

Total K’s – 2

Plus — his first career strikeout was against Miguel Cabrera with a 98 MPH fastball on a full-count.

Way to go, kid. Now let’s see if your teammates can back you up with some run support after your first two innings.

  1. Of course, those two K’s don’t officially count…but it was a nice outing for his first time. Those two K’s came on a pair of nice curveballs, which I didn’t think he would throw much this early in the spring. Definitely more to come!
