Conventional wisdom has cautioned against taking a pitcher in the opening round. Scherzer, however, has earned an exception. The added risk of hurlers keeps investors away early, but Washington's ace has posted a sub-3.00 ERA, sub-1.00 WHIP, and at least 268 strikeouts in 200 innings in each of the last four seasons. He hit 300 punchouts last season with the best swinging-strike rate (16.2%) of any qualified starter. Although pitchers can malfunction without any prior notice, Scherzer has earned a seat at the first-round table.

Max Scherzer won't pitch on Sunday

Nats manager Dave Martinez said Max Scherzer will not start in Sunday's regular season finale versus the Rockies.

Fantasy Impact

Washington's season has been over for a while, but Scherzer was going to pitch if the Rockies still had playoff implications on the line. The Nationals will instead start Erick Fedde. Scherzer finishes his 2018 campaign with a 2.53 ERA and 300 strikeouts in 220 2/3 innings pitched.
