UPDATE: Strasburg throws first spring bullpener

9:31pm: Stephen Strasburg, selected No. 1 overall in last year’s draft, is scheduled to throw his first bullpen session of the spring on Sunday.  MASN has a story about it this morning, ESPN’s Baseball Tonight is stopping by, and several other media outlets will be covering the otherwise mundane workout.

The Nationals have yet to decide where the phenom will kick off the 2010 season, but we’re almost certain to see him in the major leagues at some point this year.
In other Nats-related news, MLB.com’s Bill Ladson reports that reliever Tyler Clippard hit a hole-in-one at the Duran Golf Course on Saturday afternoon.  How long do we have until Opening Day, again?
