Nationals Place Stephen Strasburg on 60-Day Injured List, Ending His 2020 Season

Starting pitcher Stephen Strasburg was placed on the 60-day injured list and will undergo surgery next week, manager Dave Martinez told reporters on Saturday, effectively ending the 32-year-old right-hander’s season.

The decision comes one day after Martinez confirmed the pitcher had been diagnosed with carpal tunnel neuritis in his right wrist and the team was considering surgery.

Since the team is nearly halfway through MLB’s shortened 60-game season, the long-term goal is for Strasburg to return healthy for next spring training, Martinez said.

Nationals’ Stephen Strasburg ejected from stands in social distancing oddity

Stephen Strasburg was forced to do some extra social distancing.

The Washington Nationals pitcher, taking in Thursday’s tilt with the Mets from the empty stands, was ejected by umpire Carlos Torres in the bottom of the third inning.

Upset with a pair of borderline pitch calls from teammate Austin Voth to Mets slugger Pete Alonso, Strasburg let Torres have it from his seat in the 121 section at Citi Field. The umpire, not happy with the feedback, sent the injured righty … elsewhere.
