Nationals name Strasburg opening-day starter
Nationals manager Matt Williams named the 25-year-old right-hander as his No. 1 starter after Wednesday’s game against the Houston Astros.
Williams picked Strasburg in part because “of his experience. He’s done it before … And he’s earned it.”
The first-year manager has been impressed by Strasburg’s work ethic this spring, particularly when it comes to improving his game.
