World Series MVP Stephen Strasburg to make 2020 debut Sunday

WASHINGTON (AP) World Series MVP Stephen Strasburg is scheduled to make his season debut for the Washington Nationals on Sunday against the Baltimore Orioles after being sidelined by a nerve problem in his pitching hand.

Strasburg missed what would have been his first two appearances of 2020 after making all 33 starts last year and then becoming the first pitcher to finish a postseason with a 5-0 record.

"The tingling in his thumb is gone, and that's a good sign. We watched him and he's throwing some really good bullpens. That was the big thing for me: Nothing in his mechanics has changed. Everything's good," manager Dave Martinez said Friday before Washington's series opener against visiting Baltimore.
