Well, so much for that 160 innings cap for Washington Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg.

Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo said earlier this year that Strasburg would be on an innings limit of 160 innings, due to his young age and him coming off of Tommy John surgery.  Today, Rizzo said that Strasburg would not pitch more than 180 innings, according to Yahoo! Sports.

Strasburg has pitched 127.1 innings this season, going 12-5 with a 2.95 ERA and 160 strikeouts.

Washington starts the day in prime playoff position, having the major leagues best record at  69-43 and leading the National League East by 4.5 games over the Atlanta Braves.
