In the last fifty years, Stephen Strasburg was about as highly prized a pitching prospect as there was.  Strasburg has famously had his pitch count watched (even keeping him out of the 2012 Playoffs) after coming off of rehab of Tommy John surgery and the overall protection of the former number one draft pick might be the most of any player in baseball history.

The perceived coddling has paid off as Strasburg has represented Washington in three All-Star Games and was a second runner-up for the National League Cy Young (losing to his teammate, Max Scherzer) in 2017 where he was the league leader in FIP.  To date, he has given the Nationals five 15 Win seasons, and last season he set a career-high of 18 Wins, which was enough to lead the American League.  Strasburg would take the Nationals all the way to a World Series Championship, and he won five games in the post-season while also securing the World Series MVP.

It sounds like the Nationals had it right all along!
