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.
---The Los Angeles Angels will place center fielder Peter Bourjos on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, a day he left a game with a left hamstring injury.
Bourjos was hurt attempting to leg out a sacrifice bunt in the top of the 11th of a 10-8, 19-inning loss to the Oakland A's.
Bourjos was batting .405 in his previos 11 games, but .313 overall in 83 at-bats.
---New York Yankees third baseman Kevin Youkilis was placed on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday with a lumbar spine sprain.
Youkilis, 34, had missed eight of the Yankees' past nine games with the back issue. Yankees manager Joe Girardi told reporters that an MRI didn't show anything, but Youkilis was scheduled to receive an epidural injection Tuesday to relieve discomfort.
He's batting .266 with two homers and seven RBIs in 17 games. He played Saturday against the Toronto Blue Jays, but felt pain Sunday.
Infielder Corban Joseph, 24, was recalled from Triple-A Scranton-Wilkes-Barre to replace Youkilis on the roster. Joseph was batting .273 with four homers and nine RBIs in 22 games.
---Boston reliever Joel Hanrahan returned to the Red Sox on Tuesday, but won't regain his role as the team's closer. That job will continue to belong to Andrew Bailey.
With Hanrahan out with a right hamstring strain, Bailey converted five of six save chances, and has 20 strikeouts in 12 1/3 innings.
---The Philadelphia Phillies activated outfielder Delmon Young from the 15-day disabled list and designated outfielder Ezequiel Carrera for assignment on Tuesday before opening a series in Cleveland.
Young was out while recovering from microfracuse surgery on his right ankle since signing with the Phillies in January. He's expected to work his way back into the lineup as a designated hitter and then take over as the Phillies' right fielder.
In seven rehab games with Class A Clearwater and Class AAA Lehigh Valley, Young hit .367 with two RBI.
