Blog: Strasburg is ‘not happy’ about his shutdown

FILE - In this Aug. 21, 2012, Washington Nationals starting pitcher Stephen Strasburg sits in the dugout during a baseball game against the Atlanta Braves at Nationals Park in Washington. Manager Davey Johnson says Strasburg could miss his final two or three turns in the rotation during the regular season. In his first full season following elbow ligament replacement surgery, Strasburg is 15-5 with a 2.85 ERA and a National League-leading 183 strikeouts. The 24-year-old right-hander has thrown 145 1-3 innings, and the Nationals are thought to have given him a limit of 160-180. (AP Photo/Alex Brandon, File)
