Scherzer was traded from the Nationals to the Dodgers on Thursday along with Trea Turner (COVID-19), in exchange for Keibert Ruiz, Josiah Gray, Gerardo Carrillo and Donovan Casey, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

Scherzer will bolster a Dodgers' rotation that has recently been depleted by the loss of Clayton Kershaw (elbow) and Trevor Bauer (personal). He'll be ready to pitch immediately and could debut with the club during their upcoming series against Houston. Though he was recently scratched from a start with a triceps issue, Scherzer returned to action Thursday and concluded his Nationals career in impressive fashion. He allowed only three hits, three walks and one earned run across six innings to earn the win in the first game of the team's doubleheader against the Phillies. Scherzer tentatively lines up to make his Dodgers debut during next week's two-game set with Houston.
