Strasburg (8-2) allowed five runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out five across five innings, but received no decision Friday against the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

Strasburg was clobbered for four runs in the first inning before settling down, but the Nationals were able to provide enough offense after his departure to take him off the hook for a potential loss. This is the second time over his last three starts in which he's allowed at least five runs, and as a result, his ERA has moved from 2.91 to 3.57. Regardless, as long as he remains healthy, he'll continue to be a high-upside fantasy option. He'll make his next start Wednesday against the Cubs.

Strasburg gave up two runs on six hits and two walks while striking out five over 5.1 innings Saturday against the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

He improved to 8-2 despite not having his best stuff, laboring over 106 pitches (68 strikes) before turning it over to the bullpen. Strasburg's season numbers are still comfortably in SP1 territory, and he will look to put forth a more dominant effort Friday at home against the Reds.

Strasburg (7-2) gave up six runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out 10 over five innings but came away with a no-decision in Monday's 11-10 loss to the Braves.

EDGE Analysis

The right-hander gave up three homers on a warm night when the ball was flying out of Nationals Park, but Strasburg was actually in line for the win until yet another late-inning collapse by Washington's bullpen. It was his third double-digit strikeout performance in his last five starts, and he'll take another run at win No. 8 on the road against the Mets on Saturday.

Strasburg (7-2) pitched six innings, allowing two runs (one earned) on three hits with one walk and eight strikeouts in Wednesday's loss to the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

The Strasburg-Kershaw duel was everything it was advertised to be, but the Nationals ace came up a run short on Wednesday. The decisive run was set up by a passed ball on a third strike to Adrian Gonzalez. Gonzalez reached and eventually scored on a double by Yasmani Grandal. A tough way to lose, but that's the margin of error when facing Clayton Kershaw. The loss snaps a streak of four straight wins for Strasburg, but he's putting together an outstanding season. Wednesday was the seventh time Strasburg has punched out at least eight in 2017, and he now ranks seventh in the National League in strikeouts. His next start is scheduled for Monday against the Braves.

Strasburg (7-1) allowed two runs on four hits and three walks while striking out seven over seven innings in Friday's 13-3 rout of the A's.

EDGE Analysis

The right-hander has now won five straight starts and six of his last seven, posting a 2.75 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 50:14 K:BB in 39.1 innings over that stretch. Strasburg's beginning to 2017 is looking an awful lot like his dominant stretch at the outset of 2016, and he'll co-headline a marquee matchup Wednesday on the road against Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers.

Strasburg (6-1) rag-dolled the Padres on Saturday, firing seven scoreless innings while scattering three hits and a walk and striking out a career-high 15 in a 3-0 win.

EDGE Analysis

One day after Max Scherzer struck out 13 Padres, Strasburg did his rotation-mate two better. The 28-year-old has now won four straight decisions, posting a 2.78 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 43:11 K:BB in 32.1 innings over that stretch, and will be in a good spot to keep things rolling Friday on the road in Oakland.

Strasburg (5-1) allowed two runs on five hits and a walk while striking out a season-high 11 over 7.2 innings in Sunday's win over the Braves.

EDGE Analysis

The 28-year-old has been pitching to more contact this season as his career-low 8.8 K/9 demonstrates, but Strasburg is still capable of big strikeout totals when everything's clicking. He'll take a 3.28 ERA and 1.11 WHIP into his next start Friday at home against the Padres.

Strasburg (4-1) allowed three runs on four hits and three walks across six innings in Tuesday's win over the Pirates. He struck out three.

EDGE Analysis

Strasburg allowed just a solo home run through the first six innings, but he put the first two men on in the seventh and saw them come around to score after he was removed. He failed to reach five strikeouts for just the third time this season but was able to complete six frames for the seventh time in eight starts and earned his team-leading fourth win of the season. Strasburg holds a solid 3.42 ERA through 52.2 innings and will look to further improve on his season totals Sunday against the Braves.

Strasburg struck out nine Orioles on Wednesday, but he also gave up five runs on eight hits and two walks over six innings. He struck out nine.

EDGE Analysis

This game ended up being decided by the bullpens, with Baltimore's blowing it and letting Strasburg off the hook in the process. It blew his ERA up significantly -- from 2.66 to 3.28 -- but Strasburg has still been quite reliable for fantasy owners to start the year. If he can stay healthy, we could easily see him turn in his finest season yet.
