Nationals | Max Scherzer has 16K outing

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 14:08:51 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Max Scherzer recorded 16 strikeouts Sunday, June 14, the second highest total in team history when counting the Montreal Expos. Bill Gullickson's 18 strikeouts on Sept. 10, 1980, remains the team record.

Fantasy Tip: Scherzer ($9,400, 18.8% of cap) carried a 6-5 record and 2.13 ERA into the game, and it turned around a horrid June that saw him go 0-2 with a 5.68 ERA. This start went a long way toward restoring some faith and putting Scherzer back in your FantasyScore lineup.

Nationals | Blue Jays rough up Max Scherzer

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 19:50:17 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Max Scherzer allowed four earned runs on six hits, two walks and two home runs while striking out five during the Nationals 7-3 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays in Game 2 of their doubleheader Tuesday, June 2.

Fantasy Tip: Oddly, it was Kevin Pillar who did the damage with two home runs, but Scherzer ($9,400, 18.8% of cap) left the start with his ERA sitting at a cool 1.85 on the season. He remains the top fantasy pitcher in baseball, as allowing four runs over six innings to the top offense in baseball is nothing but a minor hiccup. Continue to start Scherzer with confidence in all formats, including FantasyScore contests. After all, for the season, Scherzer has allowed two runs or fewer in eight of 11 starts.

Nationals | Max Scherzer's tough luck continues

Fri, 01 May 2015 19:55:32 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Max Scherzer fell to 1-3 on the year with a loss to the New York Mets Friday, May 1, allowing one run on five hits and striking out 10 in seven innings.

Fantasy Tip: Scherzer ($9,200, 18.4% of cap) owns an impressive 1.26 ERA on the year and has 39 strikeouts in 35 2/3 innings, but he has received no support from Washington's offense. It is only a matter of times before the wins start coming, and he is still worth starting at FantasyScore whenever he takes the hill.
