Aztec Steven Strasburg is ready for the majors now and the Nationals know it

+ has a unique scouting system that places a hard number on predetermined statistical categories. For pitchers, they use control, strikeouts and efficiency. Johan Santana, perhaps the best pitcher in the major leagues since 2003, has the following scouting numbers (based on a 1-100 scale): control: 85, strikeouts: 95, efficiency: 98. Take a look at Strasburg's numbers: control: 96, strikeouts: 100, efficiency: 100.
