 ``No cuff damage. No labral damage, so that's good news," Rizzo told USA today.  Strasburg's next start was not determined.

Strasburg ( 5-2, 2.32 ERA) was scratched form Tuesday's start against the Braves during warmups. His replacement, Miguel Batista, pitched five scoreless innings in a 3-0 victory over the Braves.
