General Manager Mike Rizzo said nothing has changed in regard to Stephen Strasburg's innings limit this season. He reiterated that Strasburg will be shut down at some point in September, because he, like Jordan Zimmermann last year, is in his first full season coming off Tommy John surgery.

Yahoo! Sports reported today that Rizzo said Strasburg would not exceed 180 innings. Rizzo said he has made no such determination and never put any such strict cap on Strasburg's innings total. Rizzo will decide when to shut down Strasburg based, in part, on how strong and consistent he looks when pitching and how many stressful innings he throws, variables that cannot be predicted.

So, anyway, no news except for what we already know: Strasburg, who is starting tonight in Arizona, is getting shut down in a pennant race, and we don't know exactly when.
