Dodgers landing Max Scherzer from Nationals in six-player deal

The Los Angeles Dodgers are acquiring starting pitcher Max Scherzer from the Washington Nationals in exchange for four prospects.

What It Means:

The Dodgers are reportedly giving up their two top prospects in Keibert Ruiz and Josiah Gray in the deal, plus Donovan Casey and right-hander Gerardo Carrillo. The Nationals are also parting ways with Trea Turner in the trade. Scherzer should be able to make his Dodgers debut next week.

Scherzer is averaging 40.2 FanDuel points per start this season while recording a 2.76 ERA and 0.89 WHIP with a 34.3 strikeout percentage and a 6.5 walk percentage. His xBA (.191) ranks in the top 10 percent of the league and his strikeout rate is in the top sixth percentile.
