The Washington Nationals placed star pitcher Stephen Strasburg on the 15-day DL, retroactive to June 16th, with an upper back strain on Sunday. Strasburg missed two consecutive starts with the back issue and also dislocated two ribs while lifting weights last week.

The Mets won’t see Strasburg in their upcoming three-game series with Washington, but the ace right-hander could pitch against New York in the four-game set at Citi Field before the All-Star Break.

Strasburg boasts a 10-0 record with a 2.90 ERA and 118 strikeouts in 93 innings pitched.
