We recently reported that Stephen Strasburg would make his much anticipated MLB debut on June 4. We were wrong (don’t ever trust USA Today); Strasburg’s first official start will be Tuesday, June 8 at home versus the Pirates.
Strasburg will make his final minor league start on Thursday, June 3. Fantasy baseball managers can get their last look at all the hype on Thursday when Versus will show the Syracuse Chiefs game vs. Buffalo Bison. First pitch is scheduled for 1 PM.
My guess is that Strasburg’s final minor league start will draw better than Versus’ normal lineup of bull riding and cage fighting.
