Strasburg, the former World Series MVP, did not report to spring training and is not on the roster. He had reportedly recently began a throwing program as he looked to return after making just one start in 2022.

The 34-year-old has pitched a total of just 31 1/3 innings and made just eight starts over the last three seasons as he has dealt with various injuries since signing a seven-year, $245 million contract after the 2019 season when he helped lead Washington to a World Series title.
