"It's just a part of being a good teammate and caring about the guy next to you. As you get older, all the players around you seem to get younger and younger. You just kind of have to make yourself available. It's important for the young guys to want to speak up and ask questions, because once they realize that we're very approachable -- I think we all are -- they'll see you can learn from anybody," said Strasburg, who is 31 as he enters the first season under a $245 million, seven-year contract.
"It's a combination of the workload last year but also just, it's a long season so you've got to build up gradually for it," Strasburg said of his measured pace.
