Washington coach Dave Martinez reported the news of Strasburg’s recurrence of injury in an interview with local media such as the ‘Washington Post’ on the 16th (Korean time).

According to this, Strasburg stopped training because he felt uncomfortable with his recent bullpen pitching. He did not join the club’s training facility in West Palm Beach, Florida, and remained in Washington, DC.

Martinez wouldn’t disclose when Strasburg pitched in the bullpen.

Instead, he said, “His heart wants to throw. Fans want to see him throw again. However, at this point, there are health problems. Neurological problems are holding him back. He decided to go to the doctors for a checkup, so I’ll watch.”

Strasburg, who joined the Nationals with the first overall pick in the 2009 draft, debuted in the big leagues the following year, going 113-62 with a 3.24 ERA in 247 games over 13 seasons.

He was selected as an All-Star three times and became the World Series MVP in 2019 by leading the team to a World Series victory.

He signed a 7-year, $245 million contract after winning the championship, but has not been able to show his proper form since. He pitched 31 1/3 innings in eight games over three years with a 6.89 earned run average.

In 2020 he had surgery to treat carpal tunnel neuritis and in 2021 he had surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome.

He returned last season, but was sidelined by injury again after allowing seven runs in 4 2/3 innings in one appearance. He is aiming to return for the 2023 season, but it is not easy.
