According to Eric Fisher of Sports Business Journal, Stephen Strasburg's June 8th debut against the Pittsburgh Pirates will be carried nationally on the MLB Network.
That's not all: Fisher also reports that Bob Costas, Jim Kaat, and John Smoltz will have the call. Costas' presence provides further proof that this isn't your run-of-the-mill MLB debut.
Fisher tweeted out his scoop this morning:
Strasburg, despite not throwing a pitch in the major leagues and sporting the 1,086th-highest player value rating according to Rotowire, is the 334th-ranked player on the MLB Players power grid. Expect both of those numbers to go up after June 8th.
