Good morning baseball fans!
There is a chance Stephen Strasburg won’t pitch in postseason for the Nationals:
Strasburg received a PRP shot Friday after leaving his start on Wednesday in the third inning. The initial diagnosis was a flexor mass strain, but Strasburg will have another doctor review the results of his MRI, according to MLB.com’s Jamal Collier.
Things might not come as easy for the Astros with Dallas Keuchel sidelined.
