Stephen Strasburg will make next start says Nationals GM Mike Rizzo

Nationals starter Stephen Strasburg will make his next start, General Manager Mike Rizzo told the Washington Post's Thomas Boswell. Strasburg had experienced tightness in his forearm after Monday's game against the Braves.

Forearm problems can be a precursor to elbow problems, and Strasburg underwent Tommy John surgery in 2010. The team has been extremely cautious with their 24-year-old star and caused a lot of controversy when they shut him down after 159 1/3 innings last season.

Strasburg allowed two runs in six innings against in the team's 3-2 loss to the Braves. Rizzo downplayed the forearm problems:
