Report: Strasburg likely to be shut down
The Nationals are expected to shut down pitcher Stephen Strasburg for the season no matter what the results of today's second test reveal, according to a report by Jon Heyman of SI.com.
The Nationals have the final call on the decision, and they are believed not to want to take a chance with their prized pitcher.
Adam Kilgore, who covers the team for The Post, has reported that the Nationals will take roughly 24 hours to review results of today's arthrogram (an MRI in which dye is injected into the site) and doesn't expect any more information on Strasburg's condition Friday.
Strasburg left Saturday's game against the Phillies with what the team has described as a flexor tendon strain in his right forearm. Tom Boswell has made it clear that he feels the team should shut Strasburg down, in both column and chat.
