If the season was already complete, Strasburg would finish with the highest ERA (3.87) and WHIP (1.18) of his nine-year career. Has he really been just off in 2018?

I wouldn’t say that at all. Remember, Strasburg dealt with a couple of different injuries that cost him most of May, June and July. Sandwiched within those months were starts in which Strasburg was pitching while injured, and that certainly took its toll on his overall numbers.

Since Strasburg came off the DL for good about a month ago, though, we’ve seen the 2009 No. 1 overall draft pick in his regular outstanding form. Tonight will mark his sixth start after being activated, and in each of the last four, he’s allowed two runs or fewer. He’s also done a great job of keeping the ball in the park lately, allowing just one home run in his last 24.2 innings.
