Nationals Won't Have Strasburg Skip Starts

Posted:

VIERA, Fla. (AP)- Washington Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo says Stephen Strasburg's innings limit won't cause the pitcher to skip starts this season.
   
The 23-year-old missed most of last season while recovering from elbow-ligament replacement surgery. He returned for five starts in September.
   
Rizzo says: "There's not going to be a whole lot of tinkering going on. We're going to run him out there until his innings are done."
   
The GM added Monday: "He's a young pitcher that's still learning how to pitch in the big leagues. I think it's unfair to get him ramped up in spring training and start the season on a regular rotation and then shut him down or skip him. We're just going to make him comfortable."
