Nationals | Stephen Strasburg placed on disabled list

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 12:40:40 -0700

Updating a previous report, the Washington Nationals have placed SP Stephen Strasburg (oblique) on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained left oblique. In a corresponding move, SP Taylor Jordan was recalled from Class AAA Syracuse.

Fantasy Tip: Strasburg ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) is landing on the disabled list for the second time this season. He is 5-5 with a 5.16 ERA but had been dominant since returning from his first DL stint, going 2-0 with a 1.15 ERA in three starts while limiting opponents to a .161 average. Jordan is not yet available in FantasyScore but is a possibility to replace Strasburg in the starting rotation, along with Tanner Roark ($4,700, 9.4% of cap).

Fantasy Tip: Strasburg ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) had been pitching well prior to exiting the game as a precautionary measure, allowing one hit over 3 2/3 scoreless innings, with two walks and three strikeouts. Check back for more updates on his status.

Nationals | Stephen Strasburg dominates Phillies

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 17:05:13 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg allowed two runs on four hits and struck out a season-high nine in a win over the Philadelphia Phillies Sunday, June 28.

Fantasy Tip: Strasburg ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) has been solid in two starts since returning from the DL, allowing two runs and striking out 15 over 12 innings. Granted, those starts came against weak competition, but at his current price tag, Strasburg is a potential bargain at FantasyScore if you are willing to gamble that he is back on track.

Nationals | Stephen Strasburg wins in return

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 22:36:27 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg (neck) allowed just four hits and a walk over five scoreless innings in a win Tuesday, June 23, against the Atlanta Braves in his first game back after a stint on the 15-day disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Strasburg ($5,600; or 11.2% of cap) labored through five innings, needing 94 pitches to record the 15 outs. FantasyScore players might want to give him at least one more start to prove he is back to normal before trusting him again.

Nationals | Stephen Strasburg starting Tuesday

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 10:52:40 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg (neck) will be activated from the disabled list to start against the Atlanta Braves Tuesday, June 23.

Fantasy Tip: Most folks are probably looking to avoid Strasburg ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) in their daily lineups in his first start back after posting 6.55 ERA and 1.72 WHIP in 10 starts before his injury. Against the Braves without notorious Nationals killer Freddie Freeman (wrist), though, Strasburg could be a contrarian play that plays off if you want to take the gamble.

Nationals | Joe Ross the odd man out

Sat, 20 Jun 2015 12:06:04 -0700

The Washington Nationals have decided not to use a six-man rotation when SP Stephen Strasburg (neck) returns from the disabled list. SP Joe Ross will lose his rotation spot, although manager Matt Williams has been impressed with his performance thus far. "He's opened eyes. Seriously opened eyes," Williams said.

Fantasy Tip: Ross ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is 2-1 with a 2.66 ERA through his first three major league starts, with 23 strikeouts in 20 1/3 innings. It is not certain if he will be demoted to the minors or moved to the bullpen once Strasburg returns, although the Nats now know they can count on him to step in if another starter gets injured.

Nationals | Stephen Strasburg could return soon

Sat, 20 Jun 2015 12:03:36 -0700

Updating a previous report, Washington Nationals manager Matt Williams said SP Stephen Strasburg (neck) threw a bullpen session Saturday, June 20, without suffering any setbacks. He added that he sees "no reason why" Strasburg can't make his next start at the major league level if he feels fine Sunday, June 21.

Fantasy Tip: Strasburg ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) is expected to take Joe Ross' ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) spot in the starting rotation once he is activated from the disabled list. He could pitch as soon as next week against the Atlanta Braves, although FantasyScore owners should avoid using him until he shows he can get batters out effectively.

Nationals | Stephen Strasburg to throw Saturday

Fri, 19 Jun 2015 19:05:04 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Strasburg ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) remains on pace to return from the disabled list next week, although FantasyScore owners are advised to avoid using him until he demonstrates that he can pitch effectively on a consistent basis. Strasburg struggled mightily prior to being placed on the disabled list, posting a 6.55 ERA and 1.72 WHIP in 10 starts.

Nationals | Stephen Strasburg set to return next week

Wed, 17 Jun 2015 15:45:49 -0700

Updating a previous report, Washington Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg (neck) will probably return to the Nationals sometime next week, barring a setback. He threw five innings in his rehab start Wednesday, June 17.

Fantasy Tip: It might be best to wait before starting Strasburg ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) on FantasyScore until he can get back on track and pitch consistently following his return, especially since he had been struggling before going on the disabled list.
