As Feinsand notes in a follow-up tweet, the present-day value of the remaining money on his Nationals deal is closer to $88MM, due to the original agreement's heavily deferred structure (link). The goal by both sides is to craft an extension to keep him in Washington. Strasburg had a strong regular-season campaign for the Nationals, leading the National League in wins with an 18-6 record to go along with a 3.32 ERA, 3.25 FIP and 1.04 WHIP with 251 strikeouts and 56 walks in 209 innings.
Last year Strasburg moved his family from San Diego to Northern Virginia where he now has a lovely new multimillion-dollar estate. Back in 2016, Strasburg made it known to Scott Boras that he was happy to stay in D.C. and preferred to negotiate an extension during his a year ago of team control rather than wait to test the market in the offseason.

With his opt-out looming, Strasburg turned in a stellar 2019 season.
He likely would command a lower price because of age and durability. He was on the disabled list during seven of his 10 seasons, all but 2012, 2014 and this year.
Strasburg may still re-up with the Nationals as there is mutual interest in a reunion, however, let us not forget that the 31-year old is represented by Scott Boras, so things could go south quickly at the negotiating table. For the Nationals, that meant it was time to party; for everyone else, it meant that the offseason was near.
