Stephen Strasburg Likely Heading To Disabled List With Forearm Injury

The Nationals were very cautious with Stephen Strasburg on Saturday, pulling him in the fifth inning of an 8-1 win over the Phillies because of a forearm injury. They apparently will continue to be cautious with him, as they're likely to put him on the 15-day disabled list with a strained flexor tendon in his right arm, according to's Bill Ladson.

Nationals right-hander Stephen Strasburg is likely headed to the 15-day disabled list because of a strained flexor tendon in his right forearm, according to a baseball source. The team may not make the move until Thursday, when he is scheduled to make his next start.

It's not clear yet whether this means Strasburg season will be over.
