Strasburg Rumors Swirling
Could Strasburg Be On The Move?
A week after the MLB Pro League Office was forced to reject a submitted trade involving the Washington Nationals due to a violation of the League Constitution, the Nationals again appear ready to move young right-handed pitcher Stephen Strasburg.
Recent reports circulating around the league suggest the Nationals are looking to move Strasburg and other high-priced pieces in an attempt to begin a rebuilding process. Some believe that that Nationals are focused on acquiring numerous prospects as a way to rebuild the farm system and allow them to free-up money that could later be spent in Free Agency.
An unnamed National League General Manager has called Strasburg, “a superstar – maybe the best pitcher in the game.” He expects the haul to be substantial as, “[starting pitching] is only the hardest position to acquire in MLB Pro.”
