Nats' Strasburg uncertain he'll pitch again this year

WASHINGTON (AP) - Stephen Strasburg isn't sure whether he will pitch again this season.

The Washington Nationals star left Wednesday's start in the third inning. Tests determined he has a strained flexor mass in his right elbow and the injury is not related to his ligament, which needed Tommy John surgery five years ago.

"I can't make that claim," Strasburg said about a 2016 return. "There's still pretty much a month left in the season. I'm just trying to get back healthy. Hopefully, we're still playing baseball."
