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."
