"With Stephen Strasburg's estimated time of arrivial in the major leagues roughly one month away, the Nationals promoted their top prospect to Class AAA Syracuse today. Strasburg will make his debut Friday in Syracuse against the Gwinnett Braves."

I reckon June is fine...but not good if they're tempted in Sept. to let him go beyond the season innings limit. better for him if they fall out of contention and shut him down early.
Speculating a bit, if Strasburg remains on a once-per-five-days schedule -- and that's not a certainty -- here is how his schedule seems likely to unfold:
7 -- vs. Gwinnett
12 -- vs. New Orleans
17 -- @Pawtucket
22 -- vs. Toledo
27 -- @Scranton Wilkes/Barre
6 vs. Cincinnati Reds
