Manager Davey Martinez said Strasburg (shoulder) is still shut down from throwing, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports. Strasburg, who landed on the disabled list last weekend with shoulder inflammation, is still receiving treatment. It's unclear when he'll be cleared to throw, leaving his return date up in the air. The 29-year-old is eligible to return June 19. In the meantime, Erick Fedde will fill in for Strasburg in the rotation.
Strasburg (shoulder) will be placed on the 10-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation, Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post reports. Strasburg exited Friday's start against the Giants after two innings with shoulder inflammation, and underwent an MRI on Saturday which revealed no structural issues, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports. The 29-year-old will be eligible to return from the disabled list June 19 and the diagnosis is nonetheless good news, but there is currently no timetable for his return.
After further evaluation, the Nationals have determined that Strasburg has right shoulder inflammation, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports. Strasburg will undergo an MRI on Saturday to determine the severity of the injury. The timetable for his return will remain unclear until the results of the test come back.
Strasburg exited Friday's game against the Giants early with an apparent injury, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports. Strasburg was seen trying to stretch out his shoulder between batters, per Janes, so the issue appeared to be bothering him prior to leaving the game. His day was over after surrendering three runs on five hits while striking out two across two innings. More news on Strasburg's status should be released after further evaluation.
The Nationals are listing Strasburg (forearm) as their probable starter for Friday's game against the Giants, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports. Though he notched double-digit strikeouts for the third time this season in his last outing June 1 against the Braves, Strasburg needed 107 pitches to record 20 outs and complained of cramps in his left (non-throwing) arm afterward. Thanks to off days Monday and Thursday this week, Strasburg had a little more time than usual to recover from the heavy workload, and after completing his pre-start bullpen session without incident, he won't miss a turn through the rotation. Strasburg is scheduled to oppose Andrew Suarez in the series opener in Washington.
