Here's the spin from the Nats perspective:

Did they expect Medlen to be as good as he's been?  To me, that seems compelling - it's easy to start someone in the bullpen if you think he's a fringy starter anyway - like they had talked about doing with Det.  Everything with Stras is magnified because he's basically the anointed "Future Best Starter in Baseball." But maybe they did expect Medlen to be as good as he's been - I don't know the Braves' system very well.
