ATLANTA -- During his outing against the Braves on Saturday, Nationals right-hander Stephen Strasburg was seen shaking his arm before throwing a pitch.
There is nothing wrong with his arm. He was simply trying to get the sweat off his arm and hand.
"When you sweat, you want to get it off your hand and, yesterday, the weather was pretty warm," pitching coach Steve McCatty said.
Strasburg earned his fifth win, allowing four runs in five innings.
