Nationals | Stephen Strasburg to the DL

The Washington Nationals will place SP Stephen Strasburg (lat) on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday, June 5, according to manager Davey Johnson.

Fantasy Tip: Strasburg didn't really have a setback, but his lat is still tight after throwing Wednesday. The Nats will back date his DL stint to Saturday, June 1, and the team expects him to make only one rehab start and return as early as June 16. It could be worse. The fill-in options in his expected short absence are thin, and Craig Stammen likely makes the most sense. Any replacement's stay in the rotation won't be long enough to warrant much fantasy attention.
