Dodgers Likely To Face Stephen Strasburg On September 6

The Los Angeles Dodgers begin their longest road trip of the season on Thursday, a four-city, 11-game sojourn that will take them through Pittsburgh, Atlanta, Washington D.C., and San Francisco. The Dodgers' third stop on that trek is in the nation's capital against the Nationals, and will feature a matchup against Stephen Strasburg. The 23-year old right-hander is expected to make his first major league start in over a year on Tuesday, September 6, against the Dodgers.

But the bigger news is that Strasburg is expected to make his season debut with the Nationals on Tuesday night against the Dodgers. He will likely pitch no more than five innings. Strasburg will make his final rehab start on Thursday for Double-A Harrisburg, likely throwing 75 to 80 pitches, or six innings.

Strasburg's last MLB start was August 21, 2010 before undergoing Tommy John surgery. He was 5-3 with a 2.91 ERA in 12 starts for the Nationals last season. Strasburg's mound opponent will likely be Ted Lilly.
