Not a good sign to have TJ this early. Sure calling him Prior is a bit premature but the Nats did everything they could to prevent him from busting his arm by putting pitch counts.

Maybe Prior is exaggerating it, but I'll compare him to McGowan, a former top pitching prospect with 97-100+ MPH fastball with sink early on, had TJ surgery, missed 3 years and is slowly coming back to the majors.

This isn't the last injury expected from Strasburg. IMO.
