WASHINGTON — Nationals ace pitcher Stephen Strasburg has had bone chips removed from his surgically repaired right elbow.

The team said Bryce Harper and Adam LaRoche also had operations this week. Harper had the bursa in his left knee repaired after it had hampered him last season. LaRoche had his left, throwing elbow cleaned up.

Strasburg, who had Tommy John surgery on his elbow three years ago, missed most of the 2011 season recovering from it. He had his innings limited in 2012 by the Nationals. His surgery was done in Los Angeles, and Strasburg is expected to be ready in time for spring training.

Harper, who played for Las Vegas High and College of Southern Nevada, and LaRoche are also expected to be ready by spring.
