Riggleman: Strasburg Feels Better Today

A day after Stephen Strasburg missed his start, there is some good news coming from Nationals camp regarding the most important right shoulder in D.C., from a tweet by Ben Goessling.

Jim Riggleman said Strasburg feels better today; Nats will shut him down from throwing for a couple days. not sure if he'll pitch Sun.

That is certainly a good sign. More clarification in a tweet from Dan Hellie.

Nats trainer on Strasburg: it will be 3-4 days before he throws a ball again.

Shutting him down for the next few days is consistent with their overly cautious handling of the young ace, and probably shouldn't be taken as a sign of anything serious. Time to exhale, Washington.
