Strasburg has one made only postseason appearance, in 2014. He was shut down in 2012 and injured last year.
Scherzer said his leg is OK when he runs or lift weights but hurts when he tries to pitch. He thinks he’ll have a better idea about his status after a bullpen session Wednesday.
Washington hosts Chicago on Friday night.
