Washington Nationals star Stephen Strasburg was forced to return to the disabled list after just one start back on the field Bill Lee Jersey , but the latest issue might not be as bad as initially anticipated.According to Jon Heyman of Fancred, the injury has been described as an inflamed nerve. Whilethe team originally feared a six-to-eight week timeline for his return, Heyman reported he could be back "much sooner."The pitcher missed about six weeks due to a shoulder injury before returning on July 20. He was then placed back on the DL last Thursday, retroactive to July 22, with a pinched nerve in his neck.He allowed six earned runs in 4.1 innings in a loss to the Atlanta Braves in his only start since early June.While another DL stint isn't ideal, at least the latest prognosis is a positive one for a player who has struggled to stay on the field throughout his career.Michael Ginnitti ofSpotrac provided a breakdown of Strasburg's injury history:Spotrac spotracWashington #Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg finds himself on the DL for the 12th time since joining the league back in 2009. Of his $80M made to date, nearly $17M has been earned while injured.Considering he is in just the second season of a seven-year Xander Bogaerts Jersey , $175 million deal, this is not a trend the Nationals want to see continue.What is even more disappointing is Strasburg's struggles when he is on the mound. In 14 starts this season, the 30-year-old has a 6-7 record with a 3.90 ERA, which would be a career-high for a season.With the rest of the Nationals rotation besides Max Scherzer also struggling with consistency, it's no wonder the team is just 52-53 this season despite high expectations.The squad will hope Strasburg can overcome the latest injury and provide much-needed help for the stretch run.
