• Not a lot of movement to and from the DL over the weekend, but there was a bunch of injury updates to the spreadsheet.
Strasburg was scheduled to start on Sunday’s eventual 3-2 win over the Brewers, but his back problems flared up during warmups Saturday. He revealed that he popped two ribs out of place during a weight-training mishap last week, causing the back problems. Strasburg acknowledged it was hard to breathe with the ribs out of place. A chiropractor later fixed the issue.
“I was out there running. I don’t know why. It flared back up. I tried to get it adjusted. It was the first rib that caused the tightness,” Strasburg said. “I had it adjusted today [by a chiropractor]. I have to keep my fingers crossed.
WHAT !?!?!? Just a couple of ribs … they just popped out. It seems like he won’t miss much time though.
