Nationals '09 draft picks assigned to Double-A

The two top Nationals draft picks in the 2009 draft - Stephen Strasburg and Drew Storen - have both been assigned to Double-A Harrisburg. Both pitchers rose to the top of the organizations prospect board last year and should continue to climb the minor league ladder to Washington this season.

Storen, a natural reliever, pitched in 28 games between Low-A and Double-A compiling a 1.95 ERA and 49 strike outs to just 8 walks. He could be the teams next closer if he can build on those numbers.

Strasburg made his debut in the Arizona Fall League and did not disappoint. He appeared in three games this spring training and posted a 2.00 ERA in nine innings, striking out 12 to just one walk. It will be interesting to see how long the Nationals can wait before calling these two guys up.
