Strasburg to DL, won't face Bundy tonight

The long-awaited match-up between Dylan Bundy and Stephen Strasburg will have to wait.

The long-awaited matchup between pitching phenoms Dylan Bundy and Stephen Strasburg will have to wait.

The Washington Nationals placed Strasburg on the 15-day disabled list Monday afternoon with right elbow soreness. He was scheduled to start Monday night against Bundy at Camden Yards. The Nationals recalled right-hander A.J. Cole from AAA to make the start. 

Strasburg is 15-4 with a 3.59 ERA. He was the first pick in the 2009 draft.

Bundy, who started the year in the bullpen, was drafted by the Orioles in 2011 at No. 4. He is 6-4 with a 3.36 ERA overall in 29 appearances this year. In his seven starts, he is 4-3 with a 3.65 ERA. 

Cole appeared in three games last year. He gave up six earned runs in 9 1/3 innings in his three appearances. He did not record a win or loss.
