Scott Boras tells USA Today's Bob Nightengale that he was never seeking a deal worth $50MM for Stephen Strasburg. Instead, they were originally hoping to see an offer in the low 20s. Via Twitter, Nightengale adds that Strasburg won't make his MLB debut this year. In fact, there's a chance he won't debut with the Nats until 2011.
"Strasburg may or may not pitch in the major leagues next year," Boras told Nightengale. "We really hope they take their time developing him."
If Strasburg pitches again this year, Boras says it will be in the instructional league or the Arizona Fall League.
