WASHINGTON (AP) The Nationals are hopeful that Stephen Strasburg will make his next scheduled start despite exiting Sunday's outing after two innings with pain in his forearm.

The right-hander met with team doctors but did not undergo an MRI, Washington manager Dusty Baker said Tuesday. A team spokesman later told reporters that Strasburg was diagnosed with a nerve impingement that is no longer a problem, without providing further details.

"The doctor said he's doing fine. Hoping he'll progress enough to make the next start," Baker said.
