MASN’s Dan Kolko reports that the Nationals have activated Stephen Strasburg from the 15-day disabled list ahead of Saturday night’s home start against the Rockies. The club has also placed infielder Dan Uggla on the 15-day DL with back spasms.
Strasburg, 27, left his July 4 start with two outs in the fourth inning due to an oblique injury. It’s his second stint on the DL, as he had missed nearly a month between late May and late June with a trapezius injury. The right-hander had been pitching well in three starts in between his injuries.
Overall, Strasburg owns a disappointing 5.16 ERA with a 63/18 K/BB ratio in 61 innings.
