Stephen Strasburg's second rehab start will come Friday at Class A Potomac in suburban Washington D.C., Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post reports.

Strasburg made his first start on Sunday in Hagerstown, Md., striking out four and allowing three hits in 1 2/3 innings. He'll face Myrtle Beach on Friday, the high Class A team for the Rangers. He is scheduled to throw three innings or 50 pitches. It'll also afford a possible Strasburg-Strausborger matchup against Pelicans outfielder Ryan Strausborger, who is hitting .270/.342/.427 with eight homers this season in Myrtle Beach.

Strasburg will then throw four innings and 60 pitches in his next start after Friday, manager Davey Johnson told reporters.

"We're just looking for him to build up arm strength, build up stamina," general manager Mike Rizzo told Kilgore. "We will monitor the recovery. That's what this is all about."

In anticipation of Strasmas, the Potomac Nationals announced Pfitzner Stadium will open at 5 p.m. for the 7:05 p.m. start and the first 2,000 fans will receive a raffle ticket for a chance to win Strasburg's autographed jersey.

Potomac is in Woodbridge, Va., about 20 miles from Nationals Park. Strasburg skipped Potomac last season in his rise to the big leagues, as did top prospect Bryce Harper this season.
