The Nationals are 24-32, and they’re still in last place in the woeful NL East, 7 games behind the 29-23 Mets.
It’s officially time to worry.
The Nats got more bad news last week when Stephen Strasburg went on the Injured List for the second time this year. Instead of his right shoulder, this time it’s his neck, and after making two starts in 2020s 60-game schedule, he’s been limited to five over 56 games this year.
But the last-place Nationals are entering dangerous waters. And it doesn’t get any easier with games against division-leading Tampa Bay and San Francisco this week.
