Nationals expect Strasburg to make next start
PHILADELPHIA -- Stephen Strasburg is expected to make his next start.

And that, Nationals manager Davey Johnson said, is all he's concerned about.

Strasburg left his start Sunday after five innings with what was described as tightness in his right biceps. That naturally attracted a lot of attention since he's one of the best young pitchers in baseball. But Johnson suggested Monday that any worries may have been exaggerated.

"I wasn't really concerned that much after he came out. I thought it was normal tightness," Johnson said. "But anything at all with him, everything with him is magnified. He's going to make his next start, and that's all I know."

Johnson added that he would have reacted the same no matter who the pitcher had been.

"Anybody in my rotation, anybody in the 'pen, anybody who has anything bothering them. End of conversation," he said.
