Strasburg #37 - SP - Washington Nationals
2012 Stats: 3.16 ERA, 15-6 Record, 197 SO, 1.15 WHIP
The 2013 Outlook
big picture for the upcoming season is bright for Strasburg.
Of the 98 pitchers who threw 150 innings or more in 2012,
he ranked 15th in ERA, but was first in K/9 and sixth
in K/BB. He'll be backed by an offense that was fifth
in the NL in runs scored and a bullpen that was third
in the NL in ERA.
Zimmermann's 2012 season is a good baseline for Strasburg,
as his major league career has had almost the same trajectory
just a year earlier and he plays for the same team. Zimmermann
was 12-8 with a 2.94 ERA in 2012. But here's the thing:
Strasburg struck out more hitters in 35 fewer innings
(although he also walked more that Zimmermann).
Strasburg is a rare talent, and while there might be concerns
about his long term health, there's every reason to expect
that he will be among the elite starters in 2013. He might
not be the top pitcher in baseball, but we can expect
he will be in the discussion.
