According to Bill Ladson of MLB.com, Nationals left-hander Scott Olsen has been shut down for the rest of the season because of lingering discomfort in his throwing shoulder.
Olsen hasn’t pitched since September 17, when he allowed three hits and an earned run in a two-inning relief appearance against the Phillies.
“He was going to throw a bullpen session the other day,” manager Jim
Riggleman said. “He didn’t feel really good. He has some aches and pains
that indicted that trying to get him up in the bullpen just wouldn’t
work. It’s not working for Scott.”
The 26-year-old Olsen turned in a 5.56 ERA and 1.48 WHIP over 81 innings this season, serving both as a starter and long reliever. He struck out 53 batters and walked 27.
He is arbitration-eligible this offseason and will almost certainly be non-tendered.
