Dodgers: Insider Says Angels Could be in on Max Scherzer this Winter, Should LA Re-Sign Max Scherzer?

The Los Angeles Dodgers made the deal of the deadline by trading for All-Stars Max Scherzer and Trea Turner. While Turner is under one more year of club control, Scherzer will hit free agency following the 2021 season.

With that in mind, we discuss MLB Insider Jon Heyman’s comments on Mad Max’s impending free agency where he said the Angels could be a major player to sign the 3-time Cy Young Award Winner. Plus, should the real LA team make Scherzer a big offer to stay in Blue and will he still be an elite pitcher at age 37 and beyond?


It hasn’t been long, but the marriage between the Dodgers and Max Scherzer has gotten off to a great start. In two starts with LA, the ace has a 1.74 ERA with 16 Ks in 10.1 innings pitched (thanks, rain delay…). Over his career, Max has done it all. However, chances are high that he’d like to add to his World Series ring collection.

That’s something that likely will not happen in Orange County.

With the Dodgers, there’s an obvious fit. On top of winning, there may also be a real need in LA. Dustin May will still be recovering from Tommy John surgery. Clayton Kershaw is a free agent after the season and there’s no guarantee he returns. There’s no doubt that Andrew Friedman will be in talks with Scherzer deep into the offseason.

  1. Scherzer and Trey Turner have participated in only a few games , Think of them … NOT … being on the team ! There is the answer , in making a real attempt to sign them when the time comes .

    1. Yep. Sherzer’s age limits the time frame to 2 to 3 years. But the Dodgers should go long on T Turner.

  2. Scherzer on a two year deal seems good. Three questionable. More than that kinda crazy. Gotta let Kershaw go.

  3. Resigning Scherzer is a must and extending Trea. Kershaw’s uncertainty doesn’t help and Trea is a good player to just have around for a while.
