WASHINGTON (AP)—Stephen Strasburg(notes) says it stinks that his season has to end because of an elbow injury.
The Washington Nationals said Friday that their rookie phenom has a torn elbow ligament and will likely have Tommy John surgery. Strasburg will travel to the West Coast for a second opinion, but the 22-year-old right-hander has already accepted the fact that he will need the ligament replacement operation that requires 12 to 18 months of rehabilitation.

Strasburg said the diagnosis was a shock because he hasn’t felt any pain in his elbow this week. After coming to terms with the news, he said he wants to be the best at everything, so now he’ll focus on being the best at rehabilitating his arm.
