Stephen Strasburg will be shut down in September, no matter how many innings the Washington Nationals' brain trust finally agrees upon as his limit.  It's a tough choice, but it's a decision the franchise needs to make to avoid endangering Strasburg's recovery from Tommy John surgery. 

The Washington Nationals will need to replace Stephen Strasburg in the starting rotation, but whoever they choose for the job will have big shoes to fill.  Stephen is currently 9-3 with a 2.81 ERA, and has a league-leading 122 strikeouts with only 27 walks in 93.0 innings pitched.  He began the season as the Opening Day starter, and was named to the NL All-Star Team on Sunday
