Stephen Strasburg could be appearing on your video game console as soon as midnight, and when he does, he'll be the 15th-best starting pitcher in all of MLB 2K10 - just seven innings into his career.
2K Sports told Kotaku this afternoon that Strasburg, the Washington Nationals phenom who fanned 14 Pittsburgh Pirates in an appointment-television debut on Tuesday night, will be in the game's next roster update, and it may be available as soon as midnight tonight, U.S. Pacific Time.
When that roster is available, Strasburg will debut as an 87-rated starting pitcher - ahead of mainstays like the Yankees' A.J. Burnett, Houston's Roy Oswalt and grenade-spam hater Cole Hamels. He will be by far the best starter on the Nats' staff - Livan Hernandez is currently rated a 75 - and would be the top starter on 15 other ballclubs.
