Washington Nationals proper-hander Stephen Strasburg struck out 5 and allowed three hits and one stroll in a rehab begin for the Class A Potomac Nationals.
Dealing with the Salem Purple Sox, Strasburg showcased good command of his fastball and good motion on his curveball as he allowed one earned run.
The plan was for Strasburg to throw about seventy five pitches in 5 innings.
Strasburg has been on the disabled record with a nerve impingement in his proper elbow since July 27. He left two innings into his final begin on July 23 at Arizona and has been working to get again since.
The 29-yr-previous is 10-three with a three.25 ERA and 141 strikeouts in 20 video games this season.
