Stephen Strasburg Activated from DL, Will Start Wednesday

September 7th, 2016

The Washington Nationals will be getting one of their aces back on the bump Wednesday evening. The team activated Stephen Strasburg from the 15-day disabled list and will have him start against the Atlanta Braves. 

Strasburg has been out two-plus weeks with discomfort in his throwing elbow. He was pitching to a 15-4 record with a 3.59 ERA and 1.11 WHIP prior to the injury. He's definitely someone to keep an eye on in DFS contests down the stretch. Though, with the NL East pretty much on lock, expect Washington to take it easy with the injury-prone starter.
