  • Stephen Strasburg

    Washington Nationals

    Stephen Strasburg (hand) scratched Saturday; Erick Fedde will start

    Manager Dave Martinez disclosed to reporters during his afternoon media availability that Strasburg has a nerve issue with his right hand, and he hopes it is only a day-to-day situation after Strasburg received treatment for the aforementioned ailment. In his absence, right-hander Erick Fedde will receive the starting nod against the New York Yankees on Saturday evening. With Fedde being a clear and obvious downgrade from Strasburg, the Yankees hitters become much more appealing options on tonight’s abbreviated two-game slate.

    Isiah Kiner-Falefa (hamstring) scratched Saturday; Ronald Guzman replaces

    Kiner-Falefa has been scratched from the Texas Rangers original confirmed lineup and will not start in Saturday’s matchup against the Colorado Rockies due to left hamstring tightness.

    Clayton Kershaw (back) scratched Thursday; Dustin May will start

    The Dodgers officially placed Kershaw on the 10-day injured list with back stiffness he began experiencing following Tuesday’s workout and have recalled Dustin May, who is MLB.com’s #23 overall prospect heading into the 2020 season. There hasn’t been any clear indication of a potential pitch count or innings limit for May in tonight’s, but May was quoted during an interview in recent weeks that the plan was for him to be stretched out to five innings once the regular season began.

    Washington Nationals

    Juan Soto tests positive for COVID-19, will not be available for Opening Night

    Soto received the results from a coronavirus test early this morning and has tested positive for COVID-19, making him ineligible to play in Thursday’s season opener and beyond. Soto will need to test negative twice over a span of more than 24 hours to be cleared to return to play, but Nationals GM Mike Rizzo did confirm to reporters that contact tracing doesn’t prevent anyone else from playing this evening. The Nationals hadn’t yet released their official lineup for tonight’s contest, so be sure to check out the MLB Starting Lineups page once such information becomes available.
