According to a Twitter post from @MLBNetworkRadio, Nats' Skipper Jim Riggleman informed fans on Thursday morning that the Nationals' '09 no.1 overall pick Stephen Strasburg will miss his next scheduled start this Sunday after having been pulled from his previous outing before taking the mound, but would most likely not be shut down for the season:

Strasburg was reportedly unable to get loose in the bullpen while preparing for Tuesday's start against Atlanta, though MRI's showed only inflammation in his right shoulder.
