Player Notes
Max Scherzer pitched six scoreless innings with a Grapefruit League-high nine strikeouts Wednesday against the Cardinals.

Advice: It's too bad for Scherzer that Opening Day isn't here already. He's been sharp right since the start of the spring, with an obscene 23/1 K/BB ratio in 20 innings.

Max Scherzer has been named the Nationals' Opening Day starter.

Advice: Stephen Strasburg had been given the Nats' last three Opening Day nods, but Scherzer will get it this year after signing a $210 million free agent contract with the club in January. Scherzer boasts a 1.93 ERA and 14/0 K/BB ratio in 14 innings this spring. He should be one of the very best fantasy starters in 2015.
