The Yankees free agent is the best player available, and the Nationals have deep pockets, a desire to win and a roster suited for contention.
Stephen Strasbrug pitched a "good amount" of the 2013 season with pain his forearm from bone chips, his agent says.
All three players had what the Nationals called "successful" minor surgeries on injuries that bugged them during the season.
A rebuttal to John Feinstein's column, which asserts the Nationals’ shutting down Stephen Strasburg cost them the 2013 season.
The right-hander missed his previous two starts with forearm tightness and cramping.
After he played catch this afternoon, Stephen Strasburg will return to the Nationals' rotation Saturday.
The right-hander played catch on Thursday without any issues.
The right-hander is pushed back after he had trouble getting loose the day before his start.
The right-hander said his forearm tightness subsided and he will make his next start.
