Sporting News puts Stephen Strasburg in left field

Reader Tom sends along the above image of the Nats’ depth chart, as seen in the 2013 Sporting News baseball yearbook. While Stephen Strasburg is listed properly in the Nats rotation, it seems that Sporting News has made him a bit of a utility player out there in left field. Do they know something we don’t?

“I think Strasburg is going to be elated that he has no restrictions,” Davey Johnson told reporters during winter meetings.

Maybe there should be some restrictions. Letting him hang out in the outfield on his off-days probably isn’t part of the plan.
