Nationals' Max Scherzer: Fans nine in Sunday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scherzer (3-1) allowed three runs on five hits and a walk while striking out nine over eight innings in Sunday's 6-3 win over the Mets.

Staked to a four-run lead before he even took the mound thanks to a Daniel Murphy first-inning grand slam, Scherzer pounded the zone even more than usual, throwing 77 of 110 pitches for strikes. As a result, all three runs scored on homers by Michael Conforto and Neil Walker, but Scherzer buckled down once the Mets crept close and gave up only one baserunner (erased on a double play) over his final five innings. The reigning NY Cy Young Award winner will next take the mound Saturday at home in a rematch with the Mets.

Nationals' Max Scherzer: Goes seven scoreless in Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scherzer (2-1) struck out seven while allowing just two hits and three walks over seven shutout frames in a road win against Atlanta on Tuesday.

Three starts into the year, the defending NL Cy Young winner has a 1.37 ERA and 0.86 WHIP to go with a 24:7 K:BB. In short, he's as good as ever, so keep riding him -- especially with a start against the Mets' iffy offense on tap Sunday.

Nationals' Max Scherzer: Wildly effective in loss to Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scherzer (1-1) gave up three runs -- just one earned -- on four hits and two walks while striking out 10 in Wednesday's loss to the Cardinals. He also threw three wild pitches and hit a batter.

Scherzer isn't a guy who tends to miss his catcher's glove, as he threw more wild pitches Wednesday than he did all of last season (two). That's a bit disconcerting, but it didn't stop him from missing plenty of bats, and there's no arguing with the 2.13 ERA and 0.95 WHIP he's posted through two starts. The reigning NL Cy Young winner remains an elite fantasy option. Because of a couple off days, the Nationals will next use Scherzer with an extra day of rest (while skipping No. 5 starter Joe Ross) Tuesday against Atlanta.

Nationals' Max Scherzer: Punches out seven in season debut Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scherzer (1-0) allowed two runs on four hits and two walks while striking out seven over 6.2 innings to earn the win Friday against the Phillies.

Scherzer was staked to a 7-0 lead that the bullpen almost blew in the late innings. The 32-year-old ace will likely find himself competing with the other elite pictures in the National League for the Cy Young award as he'll look to post a sub-1.00 WHIP for the third time in four seasons. He'll make his next start Wednesday against the Cardinals.

Nationals' Max Scherzer: First start pushed back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scherzer will start the Nationals' fourth game of the season, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports.

Scherzer was originally scheduled to start the third game of the season, but after his last scheduled exhibition start was moved from Friday to Saturday due to a rain delay, the Nationals decided to adjust his 2017 debut to afford him an extra day of rest. He's now set to start April 7 against the Phillies. The 32-year-old remains one of the top starting pitchers in fantasy baseball.
