Max Scherzer takes the loss against the Braves

Max Scherzer was saddled with his third loss of the season on Saturday (4-3). Scherzer allowed four hits and three walks over just five innings, giving up three runs in the 5-2 loss and striking out six.

Fantasy Impact

Saturday was definitely an out of the norm start for Scherzer, who had pitched out of the fifth inning in every start since April 1st. His stats are still solid, as he's posted a 3.05 ERA and 76 Ks in just 59 2/3 innings this season.

Max Scherzer picks up quality start against the Phillies

Scherzer went six innings giving up three runs while striking out eight batters.

Fantasy Impact

There was a tense moment when Scherzer was hit by 100 mph line drive in the leg, but he was able to stay in the game and finished strong. Owners may want to monitor that situation moving into his next start, though it appears he will be okay.

Fantasy Impact

With the no decision performance, Scherzer's ERA improved to 2.59 and has 62 strikeouts on the season. Even more encouraging is that he is sporting a 0.88 WHIP on the year. Start him with confidence.

Max Scherzer drops to 3-2 with loss to Mets

Max Scherzer allowed five runs on nine hits (two home runs) over six innings on Friday, walking one but striking out seven.

Fantasy Impact

Scherzer has given up four HRs to the Mets this season, both in his most recent two starts. He's slowly building up strength after missing time in spring training with a stress fracture in his finger, and racking up the strikeouts while doing so.
