Though the details are sketchy at the moment, word out of Arizona is that the Washington Nationals' '09 No.1 overall pick pitcher Stephen Strasburg has suffered a knee injury that will keep him out of Saturday's AFL Championship game. Washington Post writer Dave Sheinin, in a Nationals Journal post entitled, "Strasburg hurts knee, out of Saturday's AFL title game", reports that Strasburg, "...stepped awkwardly while shagging flies in the outfield, heard a pop, and crumpled to the ground." 

Washington Times' writer Ben Goessling writes, in a Chatter post entitled, "Strasburg out again", that, "An MRI showed inflammation on his left knee, but the team said the injury is not considered serious." According to MLB.com's Bill Ladson, Strasburg will fly back to Washington, DC to have the knee examined by, "Nationals medical director Dr. Wiemi Douoguih."
