Nationals put Strasburg on disabled list with elbow soreness
BALTIMORE (AP) The Washington Nationals have placed Stephen Strasburg on the disabled list with right elbow soreness.
Strasburg, who started 15-1, is 0-3 in his past three starts with a 14.66 ERA. The right-hander went 4 2/3, 5 1/3 and 1 2/3 innings in those games, in which opponents batted .414 against him.
The 28-year-old was scheduled to start Monday night at the Baltimore Orioles. He missed 17 games when he was on the DL with an upper-back strain from June 16-July 3.
Washington recalled righty A.J. Cole to start in Strasburg's place Monday at Camden Yards.
