Max Scherzer Has Right Side "Discomfort"

Washington Nationals starting pitcher Max Scherzer said Tuesday that he is dealing with some discomfort on his right side, but blames it on lacking endurance in the early going. He threw long toss and plans to make his scheduled start on Sunday. Scherzer may not be concerned, but his health issues last year make any news of this nature somewhat unsettling. Nonetheless, his age and last year's lost time are baked into his draft price already. He is still worth picking as a staff ace in the first couple rounds unless this discomfort becomes something more.

Max Scherzer Feels Good This Spring

Washington Nationals starting pitcher Max Scherzer is expected to start the spring training opener against the Astros on Saturday night after throwing two rounds of live batting practice on Wednesday. "I feel really good right now," Scherzer said. "To be at this point, to hit the live BP, first live BP, and be able to make two ups, that's exactly where I need to be." He went 11-7 with a 2.92 ERA over 172 1/3 innings (27 starts) in 2019 and will be entering his 13th big league season. Scherzer's health will be a priority after missing a World Series start with neck pain, but he says he's "exactly where I need to be." The right-hander is RotoBaller's No. 4 fantasy starter and should come off the board at some point in the second round of drafts.

Max Scherzer Struggles in Game 7 Win

Washington Nationals starting pitcher Max Scherzer was obviously facing some neck spasms this series and was doing everything he could to work through them. He was far from terrible in Game 7 of the World Series on Wednesday, but he only lasted five innings with 103 pitches and four walks. He struck out just three Astros and gave up a ton of hard contact. He was lucky to escape with only two earned runs to his name. Patrick Corbin saved the day and pitched three scoreless innings to get them to the ninth, where Daniel Hudson shut the door. Scherzer put his all into this performance and even though he wasnt very productive, the team put their arms around him and got him to the finish line. The Washington Nationals are your World Series Champions.
