WASHINGTON -- The Washington Nationals say No. 1 overall draft pick Stephen Strasburg has a strained neck muscle and is being scratched from his scheduled start in the Arizona Fall League Rising Stars game.

The team said the right-hander is being held out of Saturday's game for precautionary reasons.

The Nationals are listing Strasburg's status as day to day and are not sure when his next Arizona Fall League start will be.

Strasburg signed a record $15.1 million dollar contract in August after being the top pick in June's amateur draft out of San Diego State.
