Astros will be ready to face Nats' Strasburg

WASHINGTON -- Stephen Strasburg will get his second start of the season for the Nationals on Sunday, and the Astros haven't done a whole lot to prepare for him yet. But all of that's coming shortly.

"We'll do some stuff tomorrow morning with him," said manager Brad Mills. "We've seen him, though. We've seen video and everything else of him."

Strasburg threw five shutout innings in his first post-Tommy John surgery start last Tuesday against the Dodgers. He left with a 3-0 lead after needing just 56 pitches to work his way through the first five innings, but the bullpen lost the lead and the game.

Mills said even though they haven't seen him in person, they have plenty of information on Strasburg.

"We know he's right-handed," Mills said with a smile.
