Nationals | Max Scherzer starting Sunday

Fri, 17 Jul 2015 18:07:10 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Max Scherzer will start the series finale against the Los Angeles Dodgers Sunday, July 19.

Fantasy Tip: Manager Matt Williams said Scherzer ($9,800, 19.6% of cap) is receiving extra rest because of the heavy workload he had during the first half of the season. He threw three complete games and pitched at least six innings in all but one of his 18 starts. He remains a must-start in FantasyScore every time he takes the mound.

Nationals | Max Scherzer roughed up

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 18:54:48 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Max Scherzer gave up seven hits and five runs over just 4 2/3 innings Tuesday, July 7, against the Cincinnati Reds. It was Scherzer's shortest outing in over a year.

Fantasy Tip: Scherzer ($9,800, 19.6% of cap) was bound for a humanoid outing before too long. The five runs allowed were more than he allowed in his previous four starts combined. FantasyScore owners should ignore this blip in the radar going forward.

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.

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 21:55:27 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Max Scherzer will start Game 2 of a doubleheader Tuesday, June 2, against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Fantasy Tip: Scherzer ($9,400 or 18.8% of cap) is a stud in FantasyScore, especially when facing the Jays. He is 2-0 with a 1.69 ERA in three outings against the Blue Jays with just three walks and 27 strikeouts over 21 1/3 innings since the start of the 2012 season.
