Max Scherzer's post-season MRIs come back clean

Max Scherzer underwent several MRIs following the World Series to check on his ailing neck, but the results showed no long-term damage.

Fantasy Impact

It looks like all is clear for Scherzer, which is great news entering the 2020 fantasy baseball season. He'll continue to be on the top arms targeted in fantasy drafts, as he turned in another spectacular campaign in 2019.

Max Scherzer scratched from Game 5 start due to back spasms

Nationals starter Max Scherzer has been scratched from his Game 5 World Series start against the Houston Astros due to back spasms, according to multiple reports. Joe Ross will start for Washington.

Fantasy Impact

Scherzer dealt with back issues for much of the season, but there had not been any mention of him dealing with back issues during the postseason. He took the win in Game 1 against the Astros, striking out seven while allowing two runs over five innings.

Max Scherzer named Nats’ Wild Card starter

Nationals manager Dave Martinez says Max Scherzer will start Tuesday’s National League Wild Card game.

Fantasy Impact

This isn’t a huge surprise as Scherzer has long been the ace of the Washington staff. The Nationals has good alternatives with Stephen Strasburg and Patrick Corbin, but they’ll both be available out of the bullpen for this winner-take-all matchup. The Nats will face either the Cardinals or Brewers for the right to play the Dodgers in the NLDS.

Max Scherzer strikes out 10 in win over Phillies

Nationals starter Max Scherzer allowed four earned runs on five hits and one walk while striking out 10 over six innings in Tuesday's win over the Phillies.

Fantasy Impact

Scherzer is still not quite his usual dominating self, but he has now struck out 21 batters over his last 12 2/3 innings. He is currently scheduled to make his final start of the season on Sunday against the Indians, but those plans are likely to change with the Nationals having locked up one of the two Wild Card spots.
