Max Scherzer Has Been Historically Dominant With Dodgers

When the Los Angeles Dodgers acquired future Hall of Famer Max Scherzer from the Washington Nationals at the trade deadline, they knew he would help anchor the rotation, but no one could have expected what’s come of it.

Since July 30, the day the Dodgers made the deal official, Scherzer has been the most effective pitcher in baseball by a good margin. Across 51 innings pitched, the right-hander has posted a 0.88 ERA, 1.26 FIP, 37.7 strikeout rate, 2.6 walk rate and 2.6 WAR.

Scherzer’s dominance has also placed him back into discussions to win the National League Cy Young Award in what is becoming a very crowded competition.
