Max Scherzer takes loss in NLDS Game 5

Max Scherzer came out of the bullpen in Game 5 of the NLDS on Thursday, allowing four runs (two earned) on three hits in just an inning of work.

Fantasy Impact

Scherzer also walked one and struck out one as the Nationals fell to the Cubs 9-8. It was a disastrous inning for the two-time Cy Young winner that included a hit by pitch and a catcher's interference. Manager Dusty Baker clearly didn't want to go out without using his best pitcher, but that decision may have cost the team a trip to the NLCS. Scherzer had just pitched in Game 3 and was likely still dealing with his banged up hamstring. Regardless of the disappointing finish to his season Scherzer will be one of the first starting pitchers off the board in fantasy drafts next spring.

Max Scherzer brilliant in NLDS Game 3

Max Scherzer allowed just one run on one hit over 6 1/3 innings in Game 3 of the NLDS on Monday, striking out seven while walking three.

Fantasy Impact

The Nationals would go on to lose 2-1, but Scherzer did everything he could coming off his hamstring injury. He was in complete control, carrying a no-hitter into the seventh before allowing a Ben Zobrist double with one out. That was it for him. Sammy Solis came out of the pen to allow back-to-back hits and put the Cubs right back into the game. The Nationals now have their backs to the wall on Tuesday in Game 4.

Max Scherzer (hamstring) played catch on Tuesday

Washington Nationals ace Max Scherzer (hamstring) played catch on Tuesday and was "really letting it go" according to Chelsea Janes o f the Washington Post.

Fantasy Impact

This is certainly good news for the Nationals. While his MRI showed a minor hamstring tweak, it appears Scherzer is on track to pitch in the NLDS against the Chicago Cubs. However, Washington may pitch Stephen Strasburg in game one to give Scherzer some extra rest.

Max Scherzer picks up the win against the Braves

Max Scherzer (15-6) was credited with the win Tuesday against the Braves. He allowed two runs on five hits and a walk while striking out seven over seven innings.

Fantasy Impact

This was a nice bounce-back start from Scherzer's last start when he gave up seven runs. Scherzer also hit a milestone became the fourth major-league pitcher to record four-straight 250+ strikeout seasons. Scherzer next faces the Phillies in a start on Sunday.
