I'll have a full story on CSNwashington.com later this afternoon, but among the highlights from Strasburg...
-- He had the cast removed from his right arm two weeks ago and has since been working on getting his range of motion back. He'll start the actual rehab process shortly. "It's healing very nicely."
-- So far, everything has gone according to plan. The recovery process from the ligament replacement surgery is so detailed, doctors have each of Strasburg's steps mapped out for the next 12 months, right down to the day he'll throw a professional pitch again. Strasburg said he hasn't been surprised by any aspect of the process to this point, which he's been told is a good thing. "The more boring it is, the better," he said.
-- With all this time off, Strasburg is resuming his academic career and continues to pursue his degree at San Diego State.
-- Strasburg said he's been watching the Nats closely since leaving them, though it's tough to watch his teammates and know he can't be there to assist. He did watch last night's debacle, saying: "It didn't look too good, that's for sure. It happens. Unfortunately, we weren'table to get the win last night. Halladay pitched really well. But you know, we could very well be doing that in the next few years on their home turf. It would be nice to have some payback."
-- Despite the obvious setback, Strasburg will look at his rookie campaign as: "a great season. It's unfortunate for this to happen. But I was out there. I stirred up the baseball world well enough to have more people become Nats fans. And I know they're going to be there when I come back in a year."
