The 26-year-old is back on the 15-day DL, this time with a strained left oblique. Strasburg left Saturday's game vs. the Giants after 3⅔ scoreless innings because of tightness in his left side. The righthander missed nearly four weeks this season because of neck tightness. In three starts since he returned, he was 2-0 with a 1.15 ERA.
