Strasburg (hand) could pitch in a game as soon as this weekend, Maria Torres of The Athletic reports. Strasburg underwent surgery on his right hand back in August to address carpal tunnel neuritis. He's been throwing since the start of camp, so while there's definitely some risk (as with any player coming off surgery), the procedure doesn't appear to have significantly hindered his preseason preparation. He's expected to get into a game a few days after Max Scherzer (ankle), who could pitch as soon as Friday.
Strasburg (hand) threw off a mound Friday, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports. Strasburg is on track for a normal spring after missing most of the 2020 season due to a hand injury that eventually required surgery. Manager Dave Martinez said that the right-hander looked good and didn't have any issues following his throwing session Friday. Strasburg is in "preparation mode, not rehabilitation mode" to begin spring training, and he'll attempt to remain healthy ahead of the regular season.
Strasburg (hand) is in "preparation mode, not rehabilitation mode" per general manager Mike Rizzo and will throw a bullpen session Friday, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports. Strasburg made just two poor starts last season before being shut down with carpal neuritis and eventually undergoing surgery. The uncommon injury raises some doubts about his ability to return to form, especially considering that he hasn't exactly been a paragon of health throughout his 11-year career. The Nationals' confidence in him is undoubtedly a good sign, but he'll need to demonstrate that health on the mound this spring before that confidence can be shared by fantasy players.
Strasburg (hand) has resumed throwing and is expected to be ready for spring training, Matt Weyrich of NBC Sports Washington reports. It's been a roller coaster pair of seasons for Strasburg, who signed a seven-year, $245 million contract after his strong (and finally fully healthy) 2019 campaign helped the Nationals to a World Series win but followed it up with a very disappointing showing in 2020. He made just two ineffective starts before being shut down due to carpal tunnel neuritis and eventually underwent surgery in late August. While it's certainly encouraging to hear that the Nationals are confident in his readiness for the 2021 season, his long injury history means the team has plenty of reason to be cautious should he suffer any setbacks.
Strasburg will undergo surgery Wednesday to address the carpal tunnel neuritis in his right hand, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports. The 32-year-old has already effectively been ruled out for the season after being transferred to the 45-day injured list Saturday, and it's now just a matter of him going under the knife and beginning the rehab process. Strasburg had the nerve issue crop up before his first start of the season in July, and he returned a couple weeks later before again shutting things down. The right-hander is expected to be ready to go for the start of spring training next year.
