Nationals | Max Scherzer with loss in debut

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 16:50:00 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Max Scherzer pitched great but was hit with the loss in the season opener against the New York Mets Monday, April 6. Scherzer allowed three runs on four hits while walking two and striking out eight in 7 2/3 innings. He threw 71 of his 97 pitches for strikes.

Fantasy Tip: Scherzer ($8,300, 16.6% of cap) was a popular FantasyScore selection on opening day that didn't exactly pan out, minus the strikeout total. Regardless, he should be a very strong starting option for daily lineups in 2015.
