Stephen Strasburg retires from baseball

Stephen Strasburg officially announced his retirement from Major League Baseball Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Strasburg was set to announce his plans to retire at the end of the 2023 season, but those plans were delayed as he and the Nationals continued to negotiate the terms of the retirement. The No. 1 draft pick in 2009 signed a $245 million contract extension in 2019, but only threw 530 pitches in the big leagues after that as he struggled to recover from thoracic outlet syndrome surgery. Strasburg exits the league with three All-Star selections and a World Series MVP on his resume.

Stephen Strasburg shut down with severe nerve damage

Washington Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg has been shit down from all physical activity due to severe nerve damage.

Fantasy Impact

It's yet another setback for the former Nationals ace who has been riddled with injuries in recent years. The right-hander has made just eight starts since taking home World Series MVP honors in 2019 including just one outing in the 2022 season. It's becoming increasingly likely the 34-year-old may never pitch in the big leagues again.

Stephen Strasburg not a full participant at camp

Stephen Strasburg isn't listed among the healthy pitchers at Washington Nationals' spring training and will not be a full participant.

Fantasy Impact

Strasburg's health has taken a nose dive on the heels of winning the 2019 World Series and World Series MVP. He's pitched just 31 1/3 innings over the last three seasons and is currently recovering from Thoracic Outlet Syndrome surgery, a wildly unpredictable procedure when it comes to recovery and performance. Now 34, the right-hander's future continues to look murky as ever.

Stephen Strasburg throwing near home

Washington Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg is throwing near his Washington home.

Fantasy Impact

The news is mildly encouraging as Strasburg was shut down for the 2022 season after making just one start and eventually undergoing Thoracic Outlet Syndrome surgery. The 2019 World Series MVP has pitched just 31 1/3 innings across three seasons after winning the title due to a myriad of injuries. At age 34 and coming off a wildly uncertain injury, Strasburg's future remains cloudy as ever despite his continued throwing.
