Strasburg could come back to make one last start, his fifth major league start since his return from Tommy John surgery. Strasburg could pitch next Wednesday, the final day of the regular season, in Florida on four days rest.

“If I don’t get anybody fighting me too hard,” Johnson said, “I’ll bring him back. That would give him five starts this year. I think it would be good for him.”

The rest of the Nationals’ 2011 rotation appears set. The Nationals will conclude the season thusly:

Tonight: John Lannan

Thursday: Brad Peacock

Friday: Stephen Strasburg

Saturday: Chien-Ming Wang

Sunday: Ross Detwiler

Monday: Tom Milone

Tuesday: John Lannan

Wednesday: Strasburg or Peacock
