Stephen Strasburg Will Make 2 More Starts In 2012

Washington Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg will only get two more starts during the 2012 season, manager Davey Johnson confirmed on Sunday.

Given what Johnson said, Strasburg's last two scheduled starts are expected to come against the Miami Marlins on Sept. 7 and the New York Mets on Sept. 12.

Strasburg got the start in the Nationals' 4-3 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday. Strasburg went six scoreless innings and gave up just two hits and a walk while striking out nine batters. Strasburg did not receive a decision in the game.

Strasburg, who is playing in his first full season following Tommy John surgery, is 15-6 on the season with a 2.94 ERA and 195 strikeouts in 156 1/3 innings. The nine strikeouts on Sunday gave Strasburg 311 strikeouts in his MLB career, which began in 2010.
