Scherzer to face Cubs but not decided when — Nats GM

Scherzer to face Cubs but not decided when — Nats GM”

Joe Maddon made the decision to make Kyle Hendricks the number one starter Wednesday with the support of team management and the other players.

Despite his very good play during the second half of the season, the 2015 Cy Young victor has been battling a hamstring issue the past month and was deemed not ready to start in any of the opening Chicago Cubs playoff games. If Strasburg starts game 1, and Scherzer starts game 2, either pitcher could start a potential game 5 on full rest, or Strasburg could pitch in game 4 on short rest if needed. Arrieta's ailing right hamstring and Lester's recent bout with left-shoulder soreness played into the equation. "But the health of Max, I think, is No. 1".

"[But] it's an honor. I thought he was going to be like, 'Yeah!' So he was extremely happy".

Scherzer tweaked his hamstring in his final regular season start on Saturday. After missing two starts in September, the 31-year-old pitched twice more.

Epstein said Arrieta "had a great day today", in reference to the side session he threw during Wednesday's workout. If the right-hander emerges well from that, Baker said he'll start Game 2.

Does that give the Cubs the advantage or are they the underdogs against the Nationals in the five-game series? He also started the 2014 American League wild-card game for the Red Sox. "I'm excited for him". This is a good move as it guarantees that Quintana will get a start in the playoffs this year. "And nobody even talks about him".

The Nationals recognize the significance of the timing of Scherzer's start. In the second half, Hendricks posted a 2.19 ERA, 1.18 WHIP, 3.38 FIP, and 49.3 percent ground ball rate in 78.0 innings. "It was 83-84 [mph] a lot". "We'll let you know later". Today, the announced their rotation for the first round games against the Washington Nationals. It appears Tanner Roark is the odd man out.
