Stephen Strasburg suddenly strained, scratched

Stephen Strasburg (upper back strain) will not make his scheduled showcase start for the Nationals against Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers tonight. Washington announced that Yusmeiro Petit (2.81 ERA, 1.09 WHIP) will take his place.

Usually it’s hitters that suddenly have a case of the somethings when Kershaw pitches.

Strasburg will feel MUCH better tomorrow.
