Rehab, Not Hitters, Is Strasburg's New Challenge

Posted by Dave Nichols | Tuesday, April 05, 2011 | , , , | 1 comments »

My second post for MASNSports.com is up this morning, and in it I discuss the right arm of the franchise, Stephen Strasburg, and his new challenge of recovery and rehabilitation from the dreaded "Tommy John" ligament replacement surgery.

Strasburg's full recovery won't be for another year, but if he can follow the map that fellow TJ survivor Jordan Zimmermann laid out last summer, we could see the phenom pitch for the Nationals in September.  Even one or two starts, after a summer of rehab in the low minors, would be a bonus, and add a glimmer of hope for 2012.

    All I care about is this kid being fully healed when we see him. I would love to see him here, but would not mind if we had to wait until next season.
