2-0 Strasburg is NL’s player of week

WASHINGTON — More kudos for rookie sensation Stephen Strasburg: He’s the National League player of the week.

The Washington Nationals’ hard-throwing righty was given the honor Monday. He is 2-0 with 22 strikeouts and a 2.19 ERA in two major league starts.

The 22 strikeouts were the most in the majors last week. Only Karl Spooner of the 1954 Brooklyn Dodgers has fanned more batters in his first two major league starts.

Strasburg has already supplied the Hall of Fame with a hat and a ball from his major league debut. He’s also read the Top 10 list on the “The Late Show with David Letterman.”

Strasburg beat Cleveland on Sunday despite walking five batters. He is next scheduled to pitch on Friday against the Chicago White Sox.
