@NatsTownNews:"Strasburg left tonight’s game with strained flexor tendon in right forearm. Mri tomorrow in dc."

9:01 pm EST: The Nats' '09 No.1 overall pick, Stephen Strasburg, the best pitching prospect in a decade, is now possibly injured for the second time after being pulled from the game when he shows noticeable pain in his arm after throwing a 2-1 change to Phillies' outfielder Domonic Brown in the fifth inning of tonight's game. Immediately upon releasing the pitch, Strasburg winces and pulls his arm back, examining the inside of his forearm/elbow for a quick minute, drawing catcher Pudge Rodriguez, Nats' Skipper Jim Riggleman, Pitching Coach Steve McCatty and the team's trainer out to the mound, and he's quickly pulled from the game. NatsTown falls silent...

No word on what went wrong yet....Will update when news is available....
