Johnson says Strasburg has tightness in forearm

ATLANTA (AP) - Washington manager Davey Johnson says pitcher Stephen Strasburg has "a little tightness" in his right forearm and was seen by a doctor after Monday night's start against Atlanta.

Johnson says the hard-throwing righty will be given medication.

Strasburg says he'll be able to make his next scheduled start. The Nationals' ace had lost a career-worst four straight starts before pitching six innings and getting a no-decision in the Braves' 3-2 win. He is 1-4 with a 3.13 ERA.

Strasburg appeared to struggle to get comfortable on the mound, sometimes shaking his arm after a pitch.

Johnson also said Strasburg "doesn't look right to me." Strasburg gave up two runs and six hits, walking four and striking out six.
