Stephen Strasburg hopes to make his next start


Stephen Strasburg was scratched from last night’s matchup against Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers due to a strained back, but he’s hopeful that he’ll make his next start, according to MASN’s Mark Zuckerman.

Strasburg suffered the strain while lifting weights over the weekend. The injury is not considered serious, however and he says “it’s something that’s manageable” and that “it’s gotten better.”

Strasburg was plagued with back issues last season but he says this is not related to that and that the experience of that is causing him to exercise an abundance of caution.
