Stephen Strasburg undergoes season-ending thoracic outlet surgery

Washington Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg (neck) will undergo neurogenic thoracic outlet surgery. He will miss the rest of the 2021 season.

Fantasy Impact

Strasburg will undergo surgery to repair the nerve issue that hurt his neck this summer. He will miss the rest of the season, and the Nationals hope the 2019 World Series MVP is ready by Spring Training next year. Strasburg finishes the 2021 campaign with a (1-2) record, 4.57 ERA, 1.38 WHIP, and 21 strikeouts across 21 1/3 innings. Fantasy managers in re-draft formats can move on from Strasburg if they were still holding onto him.

Stephen Strasburg (neck) suffers another setback

Washington Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg (neck) had an “uncomfortable” feeling in his neck following Wednesday’s bullpen session.

Fantasy Impact

The Nationals will back off Strasburg’s throwing program, per manage David Martinez. Washington will weigh out their options on whether the Nationals ace sees another specialist. Strasburg suffered a minor setback in July, and the Nationals are being cautious with their pitcher by shutting him down again. The 2019 World Series MVP has no timetable for a return and remains day-to-day.

Stephen Strasburg (neck) throws a 60-pitch bullpen session on Monday

Nationals' starting pitcher Stephen Strasburg threw a 60-pitch bullpen session on Monday. Strasburg hasn't pitched since June 1.

Fantasy Impact

The pitch count is something to monitor as a positive sign for Strasburg. However, he will likely need to face live hitters and possibly a rehab start or two. It's a tricky situation, but the best option is probably to stash him where you can.
