Scherzer Back With a Vengance

Max Scherzer got sent down to the minors a couple weeks ago to either take a step back, or work on his mechanics. This week he landed back in the Tigers starting rotation and came back enraged it seems that he could of ended up doing catalog printing if he wasn't going to come around.

Scherzer didn't pitch very long. Just 5 2/3 innings, but what he did do was dominate. Dominate to the tune of 14 strikeouts, which means he struck out 14 of the 17 out he got in the game.

While he was dominant, with so many strikeouts comes a lot of pitches. He was taken out just short of a quality start at 113 pitches already due to the strikeouts as well as 4 BBs. While he looked great, we still need to see it again. Oakland isn't exactly the MLB's best hitting team.
