WASHINGTON (AP) — Max Scherzer says he's all set to pitch. Not in the minors. In the majors. For the Washington Nationals. As soon as possible.
On the injured list for all but one game over the past five weeks because of trouble with a back muscle, the three-time Cy Young Award winner played catch at Nationals Park on Wednesday, a day after pitching the equivalent of about two innings in a simulated game, and declared himself rarin' to go.
