The Washington Nationals
placed starting pitcher Stephen Strasburg on the 10-day disabled list Thursday http://www.raysfanproshop.com/authentic-...wan-jersey , retroactive to July 22, with an unspecified injury.An MRI on Strasburg's shoulder revealed no damage, and the star pitcher will visit a neurologist in Los Angeles to evaluate a potential nerve issue, per Dan Kolko of MASN.According to MLB.com'sJamal Collier, the Nats are expected to call up Tommy Milone to start against the Miami Marlins on Thursday.Washington's decision comes on the heels of a disappointing outing for Strasburg in his most recent start.After allowing six earned runs on eight hits and two walks in 4.2 innings against the Atlanta Braves last week, Strasburg got into an argument with fellow starter Max Scherzer in the dugout.The Nationals placed Strasburg on the DL in June with right shoulder inflammation. Injuries have been a recurring problem for the three-time All-Star, with ESPN.com noting he made six trips to the DL over the past four years prior to his latest stint.Injury issues aside, Strasburg has been fairly solid in 2018. While not pitching at the standards he set over the last few seasons, he's6-7 with a 3.90 ERA and a 3.50 FIP in 14 starts.Strasburgfinished with a career-best 2.52 ERA (minimum six starts) last season.While Milone is expected to replace Strasburg for the time being Carlos Gomez Jersey , there will be additional pressure on Scherzer, Gio Gonzalez, Tanner Roark and Jeremy Hellickson to step up while Strasburg is out as well.The Nats are seven games behind the Philadelphia Phillies for the NL East lead, and they trail the Atlanta Braves by 5.5 games for the final wild-card spot in the NL.If Strasburg's DL stay is an extended one, an already difficult trek to the postseason will become even tougher for Washington. Sean M. Haffey/Getty ImagesLos Angeles Angelspitcher and designated hitterShohei Ohtani underwent successful Tommy John surgery on Monday.General manager Billy Eppler revealed as much, perJeff Fletcher of theLos Angeles Daily News, and noted Ohtani will not pitch in 2019. Instead, he will only serve as a designated hitter, although it is not yet known when he will be available.The 24-year-old was initially put on the disabled list on June 8 and diagnosed with aGrade 2 sprain of his ulnar collateral ligament. He underwent "platelet-rich plasma and stem cell therapy http://www.raysfanproshop.com/authentic-...ria-jersey ," according to Yahoo Sports.But Ohtani ultimately opted to have surgery after newdamage to his ulnar collateral ligament was discovered."I think it was the proper decision Shohei made to have surgery, and the sooner the better," then-Angels manager Mike Scioscia said in late September, per ESPN.com."It obviously puts him out of pitching in 2019, but he'll be able to hit, and I think he's at peace with that," Scioscia added. "He wants to excel at both phases of the game. The fact he can't pitch (next season), there is a little bit of a void. But he'll be able to hit and focus on that."Ohtaniwas arguably the team's best player outside of superstar Mike Trout in 2018. On the mound, he went 4-2 with a 3.31 ERA Sergio Romo Jersey , 1.16 WHIP and 63 strikeouts in 10 starts and 51.2 innings. At the plate, he hit .285 with 22 homers, 61 RBI and 59 runs in 326 at-bats.The injury didn't appear to negatively affectOhtani's impact at the plate, and his numbers there alone may be enough to earn himthe American League Rookie of the Year award. But it was his ability to make a major impact as both a starting pitcher and hitter that made him one of the most unique talents in baseball.Now, though, the pitching side of his overall game will be shelved for at least the 2019 season, a disappointment for both the Angels and MLB fans in general.
