Nationals pitcher getting his shot on the show - not THAT pitcher
Drew Storen, according to Mark Zuckerman of Nats Insider.
The Nats have two big pitching prospects in their organization with Storen and Stephen Strasburg. The latter has received much of the hype as of late with dominating performances in the minors, and among card collectors because of his addition in 2010 Bowman.
In 40 minor leagues games over four levels, Storen is 2-1 with a 1.70 ERA and 15 saves. He should provide a boost in the bullpen with Tyler Clippard and Matt Capps. Other than those two guys, Washington doesn't have many other options in the bullpen.
According to Zuckerman: "Storen's promotion will come about two weeks before fellow first-round pick Stephen Strasburg's expected big-league debut, in part because club officials wanted to reward the reliever for signing immediately after the draft. Strasburg didn't sign his record $15.1 million contract until two minutes before the August 18 deadline."
Storen has about 60 current cards with some of the big chase cards being in 2009 Bowman Chrome (like the one pictured eBay link to the auction).
Other cards to find of his are 2009 Bowman Sterling and 2009 Donruss Elite Extra Edition autos.
