Nationals starting pitcher Stephen Strasburg was originally supposed to start last Friday, but he was pushed back due to forearm tightness. He was rescheduled to start Thursday's game against the Marlins, but now he's been pushed back again (Amanda Comak), manager Davey Johnson told reporters after Wednesday's loss to Atlanta.

The plan now is to start Strasburg Saturday because he wasn't able to get fully loose Wednesday night.

Strasburg, 25, is 7-9 with a 2.96 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 181 strikeouts in 170 innings this season. He made 28 starts and was shut down after 159 1/3 innings last season, his first full campaign back from Tommy John surgery.
