Max Scherzer (triceps) scratched from Saturday's start

Washington Nationals RHP Max Scherzer has been scratched from his scheduled start on Saturday vs. the Baltimore Orioles with right triceps discomfort.

Fantasy Impact

Jon Lester will start in Scherzer's place vs. the O's. The veteran hurler has been the subject of trade rumors recently so it would make sense that the Nationals want to keep him healthy if they do indeed decide to move him before next week's deadline. "Mad Max" has a 7-4 record, 2.38 ERA, 0.89 WHIP, and 142:25 K/BB ratio over 105 1/3 innings this season.

Max Scherzer ‘being discussed’ in trade talks

As the trade deadline approaches, the Nationals have a decision to make on ace Max Scherzer. According to MLB Network’s Jon Heyman, the veteran hurler is “being discussed potential trades” as of late.

Fantasy Impact

Scherzer has a no-trade clause, but as Heyman notes, a deal coming together “seems quite possible” considering Washington is seven games back in its division. The former first-round pick is 7-4 with a 2.38 ERA, 0.89 WHIP, and 142 strikeouts so far this year. If he were to be moved, he’d have to waive his no-trade clause and the Nats would need to be blown away by an offer.

Fantasy Impact

Scherzer pitched well, though all four runs were brought in via the homer. His ERA stands at 2.83. He will carry a 7-4 record into Baltimore this weekend.

Max Scherzer struggles on Thursday and allows seven earned runs

Max Scherzer struggled on Thursday and allowed seven earned runs with five hits, one walk, and seven strikeouts in 3 2/3 innings.

Fantasy Impact

Scherzer cruised through 3 innings, then things fell apart once a relief pitcher hit a grand slam. He has been dominant all season outside of Thursday's start.
