Nationals | Stephen Strasburg wants to pitch deeper into games

Washington Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg wants to pitch deeper into games this season to prove that he is capable of being a workhorse. "I'm not trying to get out there and get used to throwing 90, 94 pitches," he said. "You look at some of the top pitchers in the game, they go at least 110 every time out. I'm going to be prepared for it. I'm not saying that they're going to let me do it. But I'm going to be physically ready for it." Strasburg threw more than 105 pitches in only five of his 28 starts last season before being shut down but will not be handled with as much extreme caution this year.
