Is Stephen Strasburg healthy?

Washington Nationals flamethrower Stephen Strasburg will take the mound later this afternoon against the Braves at Turner Field in Atlanta, Georgia.

Strasburg (4-1, 2.21 ERA), who has gone 10-5 with a 2.42 ERA and 180 strikeouts since debuting with Washington (27-18) in June 2010, concerned a scout who watched him pitch last Sunday versus the San Diego Padres.

“I think Strasburg is hurt,” wrote an anonymous observer. “[He was] shaking his arm all last inning.”
