Max Scherzer improved to 10-0 and struck out 10 Orioles on Monday night as the Tigers defeated the Orioles 5-1. Scherzer allowed one run and seven hits in six innings. His only mistake was the pitch Chris Davis hit his major league-leading 24th homer in the second, but Scherzer struck out Davis with the bases loaded in the fifth and the Orioles down by two runs. Scherzer lowered his ERA to 3.08 this season for the AL Central leaders. Scherzer is having a great season as he also has a 3.08 ERA and 116 strikeouts to go along with his perfect record. He is putting together an elite fantasy campaign.
The Tampa Bay Rays recalled top prospect Wil Myers on Sunday night. He will join the Rays on Tuesday for their doubleheader against the Boston Red Sox. Myers hit .314 with 37 home runs in the minors last year with Kansas City and many thought the Rays should have had Myers start the year in Tampa Bay. But, they sent him back to Triple-A for more seasoning and more importantly for the Rays, they were simply looking to save money for the future. By delaying Myers service time, the Rays can push back his arbitration eligibility by a season. Myers should play everyday and if he is still avaliable, go grab him now.
