Stephen Strasburg starts tonight at Disney's Wide World of Sports complex.
If you're a prospects junkie (or if you work for Baseball America magazine), it doesn't get much better than this: Stephen Strasburg, Bryce Harper and Julio Teheran will all be starting tonight when the Nationals meet the Braves at Disney World. You, of course, know everything there is to know about Strasburg and Harper. You may not know as much about Teheran, but you'll be seeing plenty of Atlanta's No. 1 pitching prospect (and the No. 5 overall prospect in the sport according to BA) soon enough.
From the Nats' perspective, it'll be interesting to see how both Strasburg and Harper look tonight. Strasburg makes his third start of the spring, coming off a somewhat inconsistent outing last week against the Marlins. Harper, meanwhile, makes his return to the lineup after missing time with calf tightness.
Not too many other regulars are making the trip this evening, but Adam LaRoche is at first base, giving everyone another opportunity to gauge the state of his shoulder and ankle.
Plenty of viewing and listening options for this one, too, with the game televised on MLB Network (FYI: You'll be getting the Braves' crew) and with Charlie and Dave back in the radio booth again. Enjoy the game and the conversation here…
