Stephen Strasburg: Calf injury 'nothing major' originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington

But it appears as though Strasburg avoided that undesirable outcome. The 32-year-old said the injury to his left calf was "nothing major," and he'll be day-to-day for the time being.

"It's not something that requires any sort of long-term recovery," Strasburg said. 

Strasburg threw just 16 pitches during the 2020 season due to a nerve issue in his hand. The Nats may be cautious with the 2019 World Series MVP moving forward just over two weeks away from Opening Day.
