Nationals' Scherzer strikes out nine in six innings Wednesday
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Max Scherzer is still a few weeks away from his Opening Day start against the Mets. However, on Wednesday, he already looked like he was in midseason form.

The right-hander, who is in his first year with the Nationals, struck out nine batters in six scoreless innings against the Cardinals. He allowed just three singles and no walks, while lowering his ERA to 1.35 through five spring starts.

"Where I really got my work in, I got in a jam in the fifth," he said, per MLB.com. "I had to go back and dig out of it, and I had to go back out for the sixth and got the pitch count up. I got a lot out of it from the physical standpoint."

Nationals may roll with same spring rotation to start the season
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Nationals manager Matt Williams has yet to decide who his Opening Day starter will be, but CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman suggests he'll keep his "ridiculously stacked pitching rotation" the way he has during spring straining, with former Cy Young winner Max Scherzer the likely choice for the first game of the season.

The Nationals have rolled with Scherzer followed by Jordan Zimmermann, Stephen Strasburg, Doug Fister and Gio Gonzalez this spring.

Nationals manager Matt Williams still weighing options for opener
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Nationals manager Matt Williams has not decided on who his Opening Day starter will be, noting that all five of his pitchers -- Stephen Strasburg, Jordan Zimmermann, Max Scherzer, Doug Fister and Gio Gonzalez -- deserve a chance, per MLB.com.

"A lot goes into it," Williams said. "There's matchups. There is health in the spring. If anybody is a little bit cranky, we want to make sure we back off in that regard. There are three off-days leading up to the regular season. So if we have a hiccup here or there with anybody -- we saw that with Doug last year. … All those things go into it. Track record goes into, knowledge of the [the opponents].

"How they line up is irrelevant when you get past the first [turn through the] rotation anyway," Williams said. "But it's an honor for the guy that's gets chosen [for the Opening Day] start. Everybody wants to get off on the right foot in your first game -- great momentum and all those wonderful things. But if you don't win that first game, it doesn't mean you are dead. You go to the next one."
