Scherzer just keeps on keepin' on, as he posted his fifth-straight season of at least 200 innings pitched and a strikeout-rate of greater than 10 K/9 in 2017. He also finished with a sub 3.00 ERA and sub-1.00 WHIP for the fourth time in his last five seasons. Scherzer set career-bests in strikeout-rate and ERA in 2017, and simply has shown no decline whatsoever over the last several years. He's one of the few true guaranteed aces in the game, and should be drafted no worse than the second pitcher off the board.

Max Scherzer takes loss in NLDS Game 5

Max Scherzer came out of the bullpen in Game 5 of the NLDS on Thursday, allowing four runs (two earned) on three hits in just an inning of work.

Fantasy Impact

Scherzer also walked one and struck out one as the Nationals fell to the Cubs 9-8. It was a disastrous inning for the two-time Cy Young winner that included a hit by pitch and a catcher's interference. Manager Dusty Baker clearly didn't want to go out without using his best pitcher, but that decision may have cost the team a trip to the NLCS. Scherzer had just pitched in Game 3 and was likely still dealing with his banged up hamstring. Regardless of the disappointing finish to his season Scherzer will be one of the first starting pitchers off the board in fantasy drafts next spring.
