Stephen Strasburg prepares to throw a pitch for the AAA Syracuse Chiefs on Saturday, Aug. 27, 2011. Strasburg is expected to return to the majors on Tuesday, Sept. 7 to face the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Strasburg pitched exceptionally well in almost all his of his rehab starts, the last of which came on Thursday, Sept. 1. Despite not having a chance to reach the playoffs, the Nationals and their fans will be anxious to see how much of an impact Strasburg will have on the sport of baseball upon his return.
