Catch every Stephen Strasburg outing in 2012 with MLB Extra Innings on DIRECT TV.
With everyone seeming to be going on the DL these days, it’s nice to hear about someone making some progress. Stephen Strasburg has been doing well since his TJ surgery and now is beginning to throw curveballs in practice says The Sporting News.
Indeed, he has been throwing fastballs at “full speed” so things are looking up. It may not be long before the Nat’s schedule a minor league rehab assignment. Still, it’s still questionable whether he will see major league action this year.
Some question whether Strasburg’s rehab has been moving TOO quickly and if there’s been enough thought put into whether he should change his mechanics due to the Tommy John surgery.
For Strasburg’s part though, it appears that he is handling everything calmly and as maturely as a 23-year old can.
