Pitcher, San Diego State
The 6'4" 220-pound right-hander signed a record $15.1 million, four-year contract with the Nationals after he was selected with the No. 1 overall pick in last year's draft. Strasburg was 3-1 with a 1.27 ERA in five Triple-A starts when the Nationals announced he would be called up. In 10 minor league starts, including five with Double-A Harrisburg, Strasburg is 6-2 with a 1.43 ERA, with 60 strikeouts in 50 1-3 innings.
