Nationals call leaks about Stephen Strasburg's potential retirement 'regrettable'

Sep 9, 2023

Stephen Strasburg's potential retirement is in a state of public limbo after a pair of dueling reports, which the Washington Nationals addressed Friday.

Strasburg was reported late last month to be retiring, but subsequent reports Thursday indicated that he and the Nationals are still negotiating a settlement over the remaining money on his contract, causing the team to cancel plans for a news conference Saturday.

The Nationals released a statement to Yahoo Sports calling leaks about Strasburg possibly retiring "regrettable" and denying that a news conference to announce such a decision was ever firmly planned.
