Washington Nationals ace Stephen Strasburg was placed on the disabled list due to the lat strain that forced him to end his last outing early after just two innings.
It was earlier reported that Strasburg was on track to throw a bullpen session Wednesday and could start Saturday. Unable to complete his bullpen session Washington made the move.
“There’s still some tenderness and discomfort there,” manager Davey Johnson said. “So we’re going to keep him off the mound for a few more days.”
