Rizzo Pulled The Plug On Strasburg

General Manager Mike Rizzo was apparently the one who made the executive decision to scratch Stephen Strasburg for tonight's game against the Braves. Via Mark Zuckerman:

Rizzo pulled the plug after being told #Strasburg was having trouble getting loose in pen. MRI, X-ray planned. At this pt, he's day to day.

It's unclear what was ailing Strasburg. Stay tuned to this stream for updates.
