— Player Notes
Advice: The 10 strikeouts were a season-high. His lone mistake was a solo homer by Michael Cuddyer in the bottom of the fourth inning. But he didn't get any help from his offense on this night, so it was enough to put him on the losing side. Oddly, he's now 1-3 through five starts despite a 1.26 ERA. He'll hope for better luck against the Marlins next week.7 hours ago Rotoworld
Advice: Scherzer missed his scheduled turn in the rotation Tuesday against the Braves after jamming his thumb during at-bat last Thursday versus the Cardinals. It should not be a lingering issue. The $210 million right-hander boasts a sensational 1.26 ERA, 0.84 WHIP, and 29/4 K/BB ratio in his first 28 2/3 innings with Washington.Rotoworld
Advice: Scherzer has been cleared to rejoin the rotation after throwing a bullpen session without issue on Tuesday and Nationals manager Matt Williams said he would "look at Friday" for the righty's next start. It's possible they'll end up going with Gio Gonzalez on regular rest Friday and wait until Saturday to throw Scherzer, but Friday appears to be the likelier day for the former Cy Young winner. The ace boasts a 1.26 ERA, 0.84 WHIP and 29/4 K/BB ratio through 28 2/3 innings with the Nats.

Advice: Scherzer had to be scratched from his scheduled start Tuesday night against the Braves after injuring his thumb during an at-bat last Thursday, but he expects to return to the Nationals' starting rotation later this week. The $210 million right-hander owns a 1.26 ERA, 0.84 WHIP, and 29/4 K/BB ratio through 28 2/3 innings with Washington.Rotoworld
Advice: That had been the presumption but only now has been made official. Nationals manager Matt Williams said that Scherzer probably only needs to be pushed back a couple days instead of missing a full turn through the rotation. Either Tanner Roark or A.J. Cole will start Tuesday in his place.Rotoworld
Advice: Scherzer was unable to throw his scheduled bullpen session on Sunday due to his thumb still being swollen. The Nationals don't believe that he will miss multiple starts or require a stint on the disabled list. Tanner Roark is the most logical candidate to start in his place and makes for a decent streaming option against the Braves in Atlanta.Rotoworld
Advice: That's after the 'pen session was pushed back a day from Saturday. Scherzer, who threw off flat ground Sunday instead, is in jeopardy of missing his next scheduled start on Tuesday due to a sore right thumb, although the righty said the thumb is improving and he's not ruling himself out yet. "I can't say that," Scherzer said when asked if he'll start Tuesday. "Because I'm literally day-to-day." Tanner Roark would be the obvious candidate for a spot start in Scherzer's place.

Advice: He is still dealing with swelling in his thumb. If he is unable to throw Sunday, his scheduled start on Tuesday could be in question.

Advice: Scherzer jammed his thumb on a swing during Thursday's loss to the Cardinals which caused him to leave after seven innings. While he's 1-2 on the season, the 30-year-old has posted a stellar 1.26 ERA, 0.84 WHIP and 29/4 K/BB ratio through 28 2/3 innings with the Nationals.

Advice: The right-hander pitched two more innings after the incident and said the injury "shouldnt be too serious." Scherzer is fully expected to take his next turn on Tuesday in Atlanta, but he probably won't officially be cleared until he gets through his between-starts bullpen session with no issues.
