Stephen Strasburg shut down for two days, could start Sunday
After they scratched him from his start Tuesday night, the Nationals will shut down Stephen Strasburg from throwing for two days, but they have not ruled out starting him Sunday, Manager Jim Riggleman said.
Nationals trainer Lee Kuntz said Strasburg will receive two days of treatment, including rest, stretching and strengthening exercises. Strasburg is planning on a throwing a bullpen session Friday, which will help determine whether he will make his next start.
Both Kuntz and Riggleman said Strasburg is feeling much better. Kuntz downplayed the inflammation in Strasburg's shoulder to an extent, saying most all pitchers endure something similar at some point.
Mike Rizzo and Strasburg will address the media shortly. Much more to come.
