Report: Nats among teams interested in Scherzer; deal expected soon

The Nationals are among a couple of teams talking to top free-agent starter Max Scherzer about a seven-year deal, according to CBS Sports.

Scherzer, 30, is said to be seeking more than $200 million. He turned down a six-year, $144-million offer from the Tigers last Spring Training.

CBS Sports notes a deal between the right-hander and a club is expected within the coming days.

The 2013 American League Cy Young Award winner is 39-5 over the past two years. He was 18-5 with a 3.15 ERA in 33 starts for Detroit in 2014.

Scherzer is 91-50 with a 3.58 ERA in seven seasons with the D-backs and Tigers. He’s thrown more than 200 innings the past two seasons and has made at least 30 starts in each of the past six.

The Mystery team is believed to be the Yankees.

How do you know Adam?

39-5 in the last two years? 18-5 last year? That would mean he was 21-0 in 2013. Hmmm

I’d like to see him with the Yankees, I know it’s a long shot, but not so long, really. Other wise my number two team, the Dodgers. Yes I sm somewhat schizophrenic.
