Stephen Strasburg (hand) lands on the injured list

Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg, who left his start yesterday in the first inning, is headed back to the injured list. Strasburg began the year on the IL due to a nerve issue in his hand. (Jon Heyman)

Fantasy Impact:

After Strasburg's first start, he admitted to not feeling 100% and to his hand feeling worse as he went deeper into the game. Those were both red flags, and he's now headed back to the IL. We don't know how serious the issue is or how long he figures to be sidelined, but him heading right back to the IL after spending the first few weeks there with the same issue is a troubling development.
