Max Scherzer dealing with right side discomfort

Max Scherzer told reporters that he is dealing with some discomfort in his right side.

Fantasy Impact

Scherzer added that this isn’t an injury but rather a result of him still building up endurance. The good news is, as of now, he is still expected to start on Sunday as scheduled. However, it’s yet another potential injury to a top-tier starting pitcher right in the middle of draft season. It’ll be important to track this moving forward.

Max Scherzer allows two earned runs Tuesday

Nationals starter Max Scherzer allowed two earned runs on five hits and one walk while striking out five over 3 1/3 innings in Tuesday's win over the Orioles.

Fantasy Impact

While injuries limited Schercer to 27 starts in 2019, he still managed to throw 172 1/3 innings and strike out 243 batters. He comes with some injury concerns as he continues to age, but he will still come off the board in the second round of most fantasy drafts.

Max Scherzer pitches two shutout innings in Grapefruit debut

Max Scherzer pitched two scoreless innings while allowing a hit and a walk and striking out two, in his unofficial spring training debut against the Astros.

Fantasy Impact

The game got rained out after the second inning, but Scherzer was still able to get his work in. His fastball touched 98 mph, which is a good sign early on regarding his health question marks. Scherzer should continue to be an anchor for your fantasy pitching staff in the 2020 season.

Max Scherzer to start Grapefruit League Opener on Saturday

Max Scherzer is expected to start the Nationals' Grapefruit League opener on Saturday versus the Astros.

Fantasy Impact

Scherzer battled back issues in the regular season last year and then dealt with a neck injury in the playoffs. However, he's fully healthy right now as he prepares to start the 2020 season. The 35-year-old was once again dominant on a per start basis last year, posting a 2.92 ERA with 243 strikeouts in 172 1/3 innings pitched.

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.
