I read that the Nats were going to pitch him every 5 days, not every 5 games, from here until at least the ASB. So given that he pitched on Sunday, I'll say that Friday is his next start.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

The Nats haven't officially announced his start yet, but the Nats have said he'll pitching every 5 days until the all-star break. That would be friday, but you may want to wait a day to confirm, as I've already learned the hard way that chasing Strasburg's starts is a fool's (and expensive) errand.

The blurb from rotoworld was posted on Wed:

During an appearance on ESPN 980 in Washington, D.C., Nationals manager Jim Riggleman said that Stephen Strasburg will pitch every five days leading up to the All-Star break.

Strasburg is already to confirmed to start against the Indians on Sunday, but the decision to keep him on regular rest means that he also lines up for home starts against the White Sox on June 18 and the Royals on June 23. He's already the toughest ticket in town.

Posted on the NatsTown blog yesterday:

"*Reigning NL Player of the Week Stephen Strasburg and All-Star left-hander Mark Buehrle are slated to start the series opener on Friday."

FWIW, Yahoo used to list Strasburg for Saturday but they now have him listed for Friday...

Another insane start. 7 ips, 10 k's (against the team with the fewest k's in the al), 4 hits, 1 er, 0 walks.
Pulled after 85 pitches. I get they're looking to save him big picture, but he was on a 100 pitch limit today. I don't quite see why they did this.
