Stephen Strasburg can opt-out of his contract and become a free agent this coming winter.

Mike Rizzo, however, says the Washington Nationals are confident the right-hander will remain with the club.

"But [...] every time Stras is on the mound, I think I like our chances to win that game," the general manager said. "I think he likes it here, and I think he loves his teammates and the atmosphere that we have here and I'm confident that he'll be a National."
