Stephen Strasburg will not take his regular turn in the Nationals' rotation this week as he awaits the birth of his second child.
The Nationals plan to put Strasburg on the paternity list Monday, when they open a four-game series in Colorado. The team has not announced a scheduled starter for that game.
Strasburg's next turn comes up Tuesday, but Washington bumped back Joe Ross a day into that slot. The team said Sunday that Strasburg could pitch next weekend at home against the Mets.
