Cubs News: Strasburg

Cubs News: Strasburg "under the weather" and won't make Wednesday's start

by - Senior Editor -

The NLDS Game 4 featuring the Chicago Cubs and the Washington Nationals was postponed on Tuesday night and will be made up on Wednesday at 3:08 p.m. CT.

Most Cubs fans feared that Stephen Strasburg would get the start since he would now be on his normal rest as a starting pitcher. However, that is not the case as Strasburg is "under the weather" and didn't get his normal workload in.

"We're going to go as planned with Tanner (Roark)," Baker said. He didn't work out for Strasburg's workout day. We have full confidence in Tanner. Strasburg is feeling under the weather, like a lot of my team is. this day actually comes as a plus."

This is shocking news as Strasburg is one of the top pitchers in baseball and this is an elimination game for the Nationals.
