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.

Max Scherzer allows three runs in loss to Braves Friday

Nationals starter Max Scherzer allowed three earned runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out six over five innings in Friday's loss to the Atlanta Braves.

Fantasy Impact

Scherzer did not have his best stuff on Friday but still seems to be all the way back from his back issues. He will look to get back on track when he takes on the Cardinals in St. Louis in his next start.

Max Scherzer strikes out nine in win over Braves

Nationals starter Max Scherzer allowed one earned run on two hits and two walks while striking out nine over six innings in Sunday's win over the Atlanta Braves. The win was his first since July 6.

Fantasy Impact

Scherzer finally looked like himself on Sunday after working his way back from back issues. He has now gone six innings in each of his last two starts and appears to be fully stretched out. His next start is scheduled to come against this same Braves squad at home.
