Nationals | Stephen Strasburg out of whack mechanically

Washington Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg's delivery hasn't been right since spring training, and scouts and other teams have noticed that he's been falling off the mound to the first base side, which is a result of his upper and lower body being completely out of sync. "Something's going on," said one scout. "I'm not saying he's hurt. But he's going to get hurt -- put it that way -- if he keeps throwing like he's throwing."

Fantasy Tip: Reports about Strasburg's mechanics being out of sync have been more frequent after he developed forearm tightness in his last start. His mechanics and delivery are things that can be corrected, but if they aren't fixed soon, we could see more struggles from Strasburg or even a more serious ailment pop up. You should be a bit concerned if you own him.
