Harper is doing fine physically and is on track to begin his normal offseason strength and conditioning work soon, according to agent Scott Boras, Jon Morosi of FOX Sports reports.
The 24-year-old's uneven play throughout the summer months led to much speculation about his health, and Sports Illustrated reported in September that Harper had indeed been playing through a neck/shoulder issue for a significant portion of the season. While manager Dusty Baker strongly denied the report, Boras recently confirmed to the Washington Post that Harper "played with limitations at times this year, no question."
Strasburg (elbow) is expected to be ready for spring training, Jon Morosi of FOX Sports reports.
Per Strasburg's agent, Scott Boras, the right-hander should be able to go through his normal throwing routine this offseason in preparation for spring training. Strasburg got off to a brilliant start in 2016, going 13-0 to begin the campaign, but he struggled to a 10.19 ERA in August before going down with elbow soreness. He tried to get back onto a mound last week but his bullpen session was cut short due to renewed discomfort in the elbow.
Ramos (knee) underwent successful knee surgery Friday to repair his torn ACL and meniscus, Jon Heyman of Today's Knuckleball reports.
The prognosis following the surgery was reportedly as good as it could be, which bodes well for Ramos going forward. He's expected to be back sometime in the middle of the 2017 season, although where he'll be and whether he'll still be able to catch is uncertain at this time.
Kelley had just giving up a two-run triple to Justin Turner before being forced to leave after three pitches. It is unclear what issue was bothering him, but it was severe enough to keep him from continuing.
Strasburg (elbow) won't be available to pitch against the Cubs if the Nationals advance to the NLCS, Matthew Leach of MLB.com reports.
Strasburg hadn't been progressing quickly through his rehab and experienced discomfort during Monday's workout, so the news that he won't be available if Washington advances to the NLCS comes as no surprise. There's yet to be word as to when he'll return to his throwing program, but information regarding the righty should be available in the near future.
