WASHINGTON (CBSDC) - Brian Kenny, former ESPN anchor and current studio host for MLB Network, says he’d have real concern for Stephen Strasburg despite what the Nationals organization is saying about his arm.

In Las Vegas to host Saturday’s Mayweather vs. Guerrero fight for Showtime, Kenny caught up with 106.7 The Fan’s Holden Kushner at the MGM Grand.

“Look, I’m willing to believe anything they’re telling us,” Kenny said Friday. “But I know your forearm is directly attached there to your elbow tendons, and the way he was shaking it, it’s not good.”

The team insists it’s not concerned Strasburg was visibly shaking his right arm during his last start, with GM Mike Rizzo saying it really wasn’t a big deal.

Strasburg, who had Tommy John surgery in 2010, will make his next scheduled start Saturday against the Pirates.

“Also his strikeouts are down,” Kenny said. “He’s not missing bats the way he used to.”

“It could be early, he could be fine, or this could indicate something.  I’d have real concern,” he concluded.
