Washington Nationals SP Max Scherzer (thumb) has a swollen right thumb after injuring it hitting Thursday, April 23. He's scheduled to do his normal between-starts throwing session, but if he can't, they'll adjust the rotation.

He's off to a great start with his new club, and he should be in consideration for a pitcher slot at FantasyScore each time he toes the rubber.
