It's time to unleash the beast—well, okay, maybe not the beast.
Washington Nationals phenom Stephen Strasburg is finally without limits entering the 2013 season. With no innings limit or other pitching restraints holding him back, we fans can finally put in our preseason predictions for the young right-hander.
Last season, though cut short, was far from disappointing.
Through 159.1 innings, he was every bit of dominant. He posted a 3.15 ERA, 197 strikeouts, a 1.155 WHIP and 11.1 SO/9. This all culminated to a record of 15-6.
His goal is 200-plus innings. An injury-free season should most definitely wield that number for Strasburg, but just how many innings will he toss?
How many strikeouts will he compile? How many wins can he accrue on a potent Nationals team?
Well, read on to get an idea.
