Washington Nationals Stephen Strasburg with nerve impingement in his elbow. Likely his ulnar “funny” nerve. Could even be nerve impingement due to scar tissue from previous TJ surgery. Can try rest, therapy. Post it with thought that if conservative care fails, need to either clean nerve of scar tissue or move it. Sometimes requires surgery to move the nerve. If so, would be out 6 weeks.
