The weather could halt those plans, though. Rain is in the forecast for Friday night, and if that game gets pushed back Strasburg would not be able to get his full four days of rest before the season finale. The Nationals, obviously, will not let Strasburg pitch on short rest.

Johnson also confirmed that Ivan Rodriguez will catch the final game of this season, as reported yesterday.
