Stephen Strasburg pitched with ‘hot stuff’ in ‘the wrong place’

Stephen Strasburg had his worst outing of the season on Tuesday during a rain-interrupted start against the Padres. Strasburg, whose era rose from 1.64 to 2.25 after allowing four runs in four innings, was apparently bothered by something other than the rain.

According to The Washington Post’s Adam Kilgore, Nationals manager Davey Johnson revealed in his postgame comments that Strasburg got “hot stuff” in “the wrong place” and “I don’t know how it got there.”

Kilgore added a few more details about the hot stuff:

Kilgore says the “cause may have been rain” for the hot stuff getting in the wrong place. I’m not even sure how to take that. What does that even mean? Did he have hot stuff on a different body part, and the rain washed it down toward his jock? I have no idea, but I do know I feel badly for the guy. The only good news is that when it comes to groin issues, it could have been worse.
