Stephen Strasburg always pitches under a spotlight, but Saturday took the mound under more scrutiny than usual. After his last start, Monday night in Atlanta, Manager Davey Johnson caused alarm by saying Strasburg had “tightness” in his forearm. The next day, General Manager Mike Rizzo scuttled any notion that Strasburg was dealing with an injury. Across the league, scouts noticed a glitch in Strasburg's delivery, saying his front arm was pulling the rest of his body out of sync.
