Stephen Strasburg thinks he might have been tipping his pitches during Monday’s start against the Astros.
Strasburg thinks it happened when runners were on second base, which only happened twice. “Just the way they were kind of checking on some pitches and stuff,” Strasburg said. “Typically, kind of the hitter does something a little different on some pitches, and when they know it’s coming, they obviously look very comfortable in there.” The righty allowed just two runs over six innings, so it didn’t hurt him too badly if it did happen. For what it’s worth, Astros center field Jordan Schafer said he “didn?t pick up anything,” but admitted that even if he did, “I?m not going to tell you.”
