Cashman: 'I don't think Yankees fans will be looking at Max Scherzer'
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Unless Yankees general manager Brian Cashman is being deceptive about his offseason plans, then Yankees fans better prepare to not see Max Scherzer in pinstripes starting in 2015, as it doesn't appear New York is actively pursuing the free agent starting pitcher.

"I don’t think Yankees fans will be looking at Max Scherzer," Cashman said in an interview with NBC New York, per NJ.com. 

It has been reported Scherzer is looking for a deal in the $200 million range. Cashman said Scherzer is on a "higher level than we'd like to play in right now."

Last week at the Winter Meetings, the agent for Scherzer -- Scott Boras -- was angling for the Yankees to sign the 30-year-old pitcher.

"The idea of them having a No. 1 pitcher certainly would add protection to where their current pitchers are, to take innings off them, give them a little bit an umbrella, somebody to be the No. 1," Boras said Wednesday. "It certainly … I can’t predict what the Yankees are going to do, but a guy like Max fits in with their starting rotation to develop a World Series-caliber set, similar to what they’ve had in the past."

Report: Cardinals not active in Max Scherzer market
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Cardinals say they are not active in the market for free-agent pitcher Max Scherzer, USA Today Sports reports.

Scherzer is expected to command a huge deal, one the Cardinals feel is too expensive for their budget. He's 39-8 with 492 strikeous in 434 1/3 innings over the last two seasons.

Stewart: Diamondbacks considering pursuing Scherzer, Shields
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Diamondbacks general manager Dave Stewart said Friday that the team is discussing internally whether to pursue free-agent pitchers Max Scherzer or James Shields, the Arizona Republic reorts.

The Diamondbacks were able to free up about $16 million in payroll by dealing pitcher Wade Miley and catcher Miguel Montero, and it appears that money could be used to target one of the market's top starting pitchers. Scherzer figures to command a deal much larger than Shields.

Dombrowski: Tigers 'not in active pursuit' of SP Max Scherzer
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

It appears the chances of the Tigers re-signing starting pitcher Max Scherzer are dwindling, as general manager Dave Dombrowski revealed Thursday at the Winter Meetings the right-handed hurler is not on the team's radar at the current time.

"I guess anything can happen, but we’re not in active pursuit of that situation at this time," Dombrowksi said of re-signing Scherzer, per the Detroit Free Press.

The 30-year-old Scherzer has won 10-plus games in five straight seasons for Detroit. He has won 39 games over the last two seasons. He is 91-50 with a 3.58 ERA in seven MLB seasons.

Tigers GM Dave Dombrowski shoots down Max Scherzer rumors
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski called a recent report that his team is "prepared to spend big, big dollars" on free agent starting pitcher Max Scherzer, "not accurate," per Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press on Tuesday.

Scherzer turned down Detroit's 15.3 million qualifying offer in November. In his five seasons with the Tigers, Scherzer went 82-35 with a 3.52 ERA and 1.20 WHIP in 161 starts.
