Nationals | Stephen Strasburg had been feeling oblique

Washington Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg (oblique) said his oblique had been bothering him in recent starts before it caused him to leave his start early Friday, May 31. "It's something that's been nagging a little bit the last few starts, and I've been pitching really well, so I didn't really think about it too much," said Strasburg, who went just two innings -- the shortest start of his career -- before being removed. "There's a lot of times you go out there and you don't feel 100 percent. You've got to go out there and gut through it."

Fantasy Tip: Oblique strains usually always require disabled list stints, especially for pitchers. We fully expect Strasburg to need to miss at least one start, if not two, depending on the results of his examination Saturday. You should prepare for the same thing. Craig Stammen could join the rotation if Strasburg has to be placed on the DL.
