SAN DIEGO - Stephen Strasburg will make his next start on Thursday for Triple-A Syracuse at Buffalo, Nationals GM Mike Rizzo said on Sunday. He will throw six innings or 95 pitches, whichever comes first.
You can do the math from there, but it would put Strasburg's next day to pitch as June 8. It's possible the Nationals could give him an extra day of rest and start him June 9, but whether he's at Triple-A or the majors, he's scheduled for the 8th on regular rest.
Strasburg allowed three runs on six hits in five innings for Syracuse on Saturday, taking his first Triple-A loss against Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. That game is being replayed on MASN and MASN HD after the Nationals-Padres game, which starts at 4:05 Eastern.
