Strasburg may have to wait just a few more days to begin Spring Training. CBS Sports.com's R.J. White reports that Strasburg "could miss the first four or five days" of camp. White reports that manager Matt Williams told MASN that Strasburg's rehab is going well, but he may need a few extra days to complete recovery.
#Nats' #MattWilliams tells MASN that #StephenStrasburg's rehab is going fine, but could get a late start in spring camp by 4-5 days..Strasburg served a stint on the 15-day disabled list in June with a right shoulder strain, and he missed 12 more games in September because of forearm tightness. He finished the season with two quality starts, but examination after the season revealed the bone spurs.

Strasburg has battled injuries throughout his brief MLB career that began in 2010. He missed the end of his rookie season and most of 2011 due to Tommy John surgery. Through these injuries, though, he has managed to post a career record of 29-19, 2.96 ERA, 1.073 WHIP, 504 strikeouts, and 2.1 average WAR in 75 games. He and teammates Bryce Harper and Adam LaRoche are all recovering from October surgeries but should be ready when or soon after Spring Training starts.
