Here are the updates h/t MASN:
RHP Joe Ross underwent another MRI yesterday and the results didn't look good. According to Ross, the MRI showed “more of a sprain” of his elbow ligament than previous MRIs did. Ross also noted that he will be going to have further tests tomorrow before deciding on a course of action for the future.
RHP Stephen Strasburg will return to Fredericksburg for his next rehab start possibly Sunday when the FredNats will face the Salam Red Sox. [Stay tuned for the exact details] According to MASN, Strasburg will then travel with the Nationals up to New York before the Nationals will face the first-place New York Mets. Strasburg will then head back to his third rehab assignment yet to be determined. Things are looking good for the 2019 World Series MVP.
Washington Nationals' shortstop prospect Luís García experienced a hyperextended left arm due to a collision at first base earlier this week with the Rochester Red Wings. Martinez said that the prospect will be fine and will be back playing with the Red Wings after a couple of days off.
