Max Scherzer made his first appearance in Dodger blue and was spotted getting to know his teammates in LA’s dugout over the weekend. The 3-time Cy Young Award winner will make his first scheduled start with his new team on Wednesday against the Houston Astros.
We discuss how big of an impact Max Scherzer will have for the Dodgers and how dominant he is even at his advanced age. Plus, Mad Max tosses his first bullpen session in blue!
Over his storied 14-year career, Scherzer has earned the label of a big game pitcher and was often turned to as a game one starter for the Nationals and Tigers before then. While he has only one World Series championship to show for it, Max shows up when it counts.
However, in LA, he’s not looked at as that game one ace. Without a doubt, you’re looking at the best number 2 or 3 starting pitcher in October. So, really, his biggest impact is that he can settle in to a postseason series and look to be a stopper or series finisher if need be. A role like that could loom large late into Fall.
