Nationals | Drew Storen was in pain during playoffs?

Teammates of Washington Nationals RP Drew Storen (back) claim that he was dealing with terrible pain in his back during the playoff series in which he blew a late lead against the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 5 that ended the team's season. Storen reportedly spent much of those last three days of the season in the trainer's room receiving treatment for back spasms. General manager Mike Rizzo said he "didn't want to talk about" Storen's condition in Game 5. Rizzo also said Storen's blowup in that game wasn't the reason they went out and signed RP Rafael Soriano. "He was having real bad back spasms. That was the third day (pitching) in a row," OF Jayson Werth said. "He was banged up, man. No one knew. For him to just have the balls to go out there, that says a lot about him."
