|Neck problem will not sideline Max Scherzer |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(7/20/14) Tigers ace Max Scherzer was nearly scratched Saturday with a neck issue, according to MLive.com. He didn't have his typical stuff as he surrendered two runs in 5 2/3 innings with six hits, four walks and just four strikeouts.
Scherzer, who is expected to make his next start Thursday against the host Angels, had performed well in four previous starts, going 3-0 with five runs allowed in 28 innings.

(7/19/14) Tigers pitcher Max Scherzer didn't factor into Saturday's decision after giving up two earned runs on six hits and four walks in 5 2/3 innings and striking out four in his team's 5-2 loss to the Indians.
Scherzer served up two solo home runs but was lucky not to suffer further damage after putting 10 runners on base and throwing a wild pitch. He owns a 3.34 ERA and 150:39 K:BB ratio in 132 innings. Scherzer is set to face the Angels Thursday.
|Max Scherzer picks up a win in the All-Star Game |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(7/15/14) Tigers pitcher Max Scherzer managed to pick up a win in relief Tuesday in the All-Star Game.
Scherzer performed well during his inning of work, picking up two strikeouts. The only blemish during his inning of work was a double to Troy Tulowitzki. After tossing a scoreless top of the inning, Scherzer was fortunate enough to get two runs worth of support in the bottom of the inning. The score held 5-3, giving Scherzer the win.

|Max Scherzer fans seven, wins third straight |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(7/9/14) Tigers pitcher Max Scherzer won his third decision in a row Wednesday, as he took down the Dodgers, 4-1.
Scherzer tossed seven strong innings, and the Dodgers got to him just once on a fifth-inning solo home run. He scattered just four hits overall along with a pair of walks, while striking out seven batters on 101 pitches.
Scherzer improved to 11-3 with the win, while lowering his ERA to 3.35, the fourth straight start it has fallen. Scherzer does not have another start scheduled before the All-Star game, but could pitch during the team's first series against the Indians.
|Max Scherzer broke out in 2012, as he improved his command and became an elite strikeout pitcher. The 29-year-old took another big step forward in 2013 and won the American League Cy Young Award, even though his skill set didn't seem to be much different from the one he displayed the year before. For a second straight year, Scherzer showed that he has the ability to be a Fantasy ace, though it didn't show in 2012, as his ERA and WHIP were burdened by a .338 batting average on balls in play (BABIP). Scherzer made up for bad luck and then some last year when benefitted from both a .264 BABIP and a favorable 7.0 percent home run per flyball ratio. With some regression surely on the way, Scherzer won't likely rank as the second-most valuable Fantasy pitcher again this year, but he is still worth drafting among the top half-dozen starters.
