Stephen Strasburg, who was due to face Matt Harvey in his final 2012 start on Wednesday at Citi Field, instead is being shut down for the season now.

Davey Johnson made the announcement Saturday, a day after Strasburg struggled. Johnson cited the distraction of Strasburg's impending shutdown as a factor in a subpar performance Friday against the Miami Marlins.

The Mets instead face John Lannan on Wednesday.
