Washington Nationals right-hander Stephen Strasburg will make his next start after being treated for forearm tightness after Monday's game, GM Mike Rizzo told the Washington Post. Strasburg's arm is "structurally perfect." He merely felt "irritation in his forearm" Monday. "No problem," Rizzo told the paper. Strasburg, 24, allowed two runs in six innings against the Atlanta Braves on Monday. He's 1-4 with a 3.13 ERA and 36 strikeouts in 37 1/3 innings in six starts this year. After having Tommy John surgery in 2010, the Nationals limited their ace to 28 starts and 159 1/3 innings last season to try and lessen the risk of future injury.
