Stephen Strasburg underwent test today

Stephen Strasburg underwent his arthrogram early this afternoon, and so now the Nationals will wait nervously for the results that will determine his immediate future. "I'm very anxious about that," Manager Jim Riggelman said.

The Nationals could learn a range of news about Strasburg. Last year when Jordan Zimmermann - tonight's starter - underwent an arthrogram on his right elbow, it revealed he needed Tommy John surgery.

"I don't even venture to guess," Riggleman said. "The thing with Stephen is, he was my office yesterday saying, 'I could pitch tonight. I feel great.' But you never know. Jordan Zimmermann last year, he thought he could have pitched through the whole situation. It just wasn't to be. All I can do is wait for it like anybody else."

The way this matter is being drawn out has a very "your mother's on the roof" feel to it...

Don't know about that, but that the docs would want to wait for the inflammation to subside a bit before getting another image makes sense to me.

I think that they had been told before today what this second MRI was going to show.
