The MLB Network’s Jon Heyman reports Max Scherzer is expected to sign with a team before MLB’s Collective Bargaining Agreement expires December 1st. The front runners to land Scherzer look to be the Dodgers, Giants, Mets, and Angels. Last season, the three-time Cy Young Award winner pitched 179.1 innings, posting a 2.46 ERA, a 0.86 WHIP, and a 6.6 strikeout-to-walk ratio. He won eight games with the Nationals and seven with the Dodgers, where he had zero losses. Scherzer’s pitching WAR of six was fourth-best league-wide in 2021. The 37-year-old is easily one of the most sought-after free agents available and will land a huge deal wherever he ends up.
The MLB offseason is heating up, and 2022 World Series future odds are already available at FanDuel Sportsbook. Scherzer is always in the mix for a Cy Young Award, so make sure to keep an eye out for him when the individual award odds are posted.
