Strasburg missed Monday's start against the Los Angeles Dodgers due to an upper back strain. The right-hander said he was injured during a weight room workout.
Strasburg said two ribs were out of alignment and later adjusted back into place.
Strasburg threw a light bullpen session Friday and didn't have any setbacks, making it a near-certainty he will start the contest against the Milwaukee Brewers.
"I think that's the plan," Strasburg told reporters.
The missed start on Monday prevented a marquee matchup between Strasburg and Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw. Strasburg is 10-0 with a 2.90 ERA in 14 starts this season.
