Nationals starter Stephen Strasburg will make his next start on Tuesday against the Diamondbacks, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports. He exited early from his previous start due to “discomfort under his shoulder blade“. Strasburg and Scherzer will essentially swap their order in the rotation. Scherzer starts Monday with a normal amount of rest as the Nationals enjoyed an off day on Thursday.
Strasburg underwent a chiropractic adjustment on Wednesday and said on Friday that he was “feeling good”. He threw a bullpen on Saturday, which cleared him for his next start.
In six starts spanning 32 1/3 innings, Strasburg has a 4.73 ERA with a 32/10 K/BB ratio.
