If the Washington Nationals are going to get into the playoffs, they’ll have to be very creative with the innings pitched by staff ace, 24-year-old Stephen Strasburg.

Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo has been saying for weeks that the former San Diego State star will not pitch more than 180 innings in 2012.

So far, Strasburg is on pace to pitch 184.1 innings in a very solid year so far.

In April 2012, Strasburg accumulated an NL-best 34 strikeouts and second-best 1.13 ERA. He totaled 6 walks and did not give up a home run. Consequently he was named National League Player of the Month.  On May 20, Strasburg went 2-for-2 as a hitter in a game against the Baltimore Orioles and hit his first career home run, a solo shot off of Wei-Yin Chen.

In his June 13 start against the Toronto Blue Jays, Strasburg became the first pitcher of the year to strike out 100 batters.

On July 1, Strasburg was elected to his first All-Star Game.

The Washington Nationals have been controlling the National League East since the early days of the season.

The move will automatically make Chapman eligible for postseason play. Traditionally, players must be on a team’s 25-man active roster by August 31 to be eligible for the playoffs, which is the main reason Cincinnati is planning to also activate veteran right-hander Aaron Harang on Tuesday.

The 22-year-old Chapman, is 9-6 in 2010 with eight saves and a 3.57 ERA in 39 games, including 13 starts. He has piled up 125 strikeouts with 52 walks in 95 2/3 innings and opponents are batting only .218 against the Cuban lefty.

McCatty told general manager Mike Rizzo immediately and he was scratched from the lineup.

Strasburg was checked out by a team doctor and sent out for an MRI and X-ray exam. Mike Rizzo said the tests showed no structural problems and that the diagnosis is inflammation.

The 22-year-old Strasburg will be considered day-to-day.

In nine starts this season, Strasburg is 5-2 with a 2.32 ERA, 75 strikeouts and 15 walks in 54 1/3 innings.
