MLB insider Jon Heyman reported that Washington Nationals star right-handed pitcher, Max Scherzer is being discussed in potential trades. We react to Heyman’s rumor and discuss what it would take for the Dodgers to get involved in trade talks for the three-time Cy Young Award winner before the July 30th MLB trade deadline.
Plus, we assess how enormous the asking price would be for “Mad Max” and if LA would be willing to part ways with top prospects for a potential Max Scherzer rental.
In 18 starts this season, Scherzer has a 7-4 record with a 2.83 ERA and 142 strikeouts. With the current state of the starting rotation, that would immediately be a top option to open games. Notably, Clayton Kershaw is making his way back from an elbow issue but isn’t expected back before August. David Price and Tony Gonsolin put up back to back quality starts, but the jury is out on how the club would view either of them in a postseason series.
Josiah Gray makes his first big league start for the Dodgers this afternoon at Dodger Stadium. He allowed 4 earned runs over 4 innings in his MLB debut on Tuesday. He struck out 7 batters and walked none. The boys in blue need to take this game.
