    Stephen Strasburg Working Out at Home for the Nationals

    Stephen Strasburg of the Washington Nationals is working out at home, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports. Strasburg was limited to one start last season due to a stress reaction in his rib cage. This reaction is said to be related to the thoracic outlet syndrome that caused him to have surgery in 2021. It is unknown at this time if Strasburg will be able to pitch at all this season.

    Washington Nationals make big leap on Keith Law's farm system rankings for 2023…

    Coming off their World Series win in 2019 and a disappointing follow-up in 2020's 60-game COVID campaign, The Athletic's Keith Law ranked Washington's Nationals' 30th overall among MLB's 30 farm systems, noting that the club spent a lot of prospect capital on the way to winning the first championship by a D.C.-based team since 1924. With an aggressive approach to the new rules regarding international signings, however, Law wrote, “… the Nats' system could look a whole lot better in a year if all of their teenage Latin American prospects get a chance to play and show us if their abilities line up with their tools.” In his 2022 ranking of MLB's farm systems, Law had the Nationals at No. 27, with two of their prospects (2021 1st Round pick Brady House at No. 46 and 2020 1st Rounder Cade Cavalli at No. 48), on his Top 100 for 2022 last winter.

After agreeing in September 2021 to consider the case, the state's highest court said this week that it will hear arguments on the question of “whether courts have the power, after vacating an arbitration award based on 'evident partiality' related to the forum, to order rehearing in a forum other than that provided for in the parties' arbitration agreement.”
