MLB: Eight most likely candidate clubs for pitcher Max Scherzer

The latest flirtation from Max scherzer with free agency resulted in a seven-year, $ 210 million contract with the Washington Nationals, a deal widely viewed as one of the best free agent signings in history.

The right-hander was 92-47 with a 2.80 ERA in his more than six seasons with Washington, leading the Nationals to the postseason three times. He played an integral role in the 2019 World Series title the club’s first in Nationals history, becoming one of the most beloved figures in DC sports history:

Washington traded Scherzer to the Dodgers last summer, bolstering Los Angeles’ postseason hopes in an ultra-competitive NL West. The Dodgers didn’t clinch a ninth straight division title, finishing a game behind the Giants, but that gap would have been much wider without Scherzer, who was 7-0 with a 1.98 ERA in 11 starts, all of them Dodgers wins. .

Even at 37, Scherzer is considered the best pitcher available on the free-agent market this year, and while he’s unlikely to land a long contract that takes him to 40, a three-year deal with a record annual average. That it sets a record for annual mean value (AAV) is not out of the question. Here are eight most likely suitors for Max Scherzer:

I am fond of the King of Sports, especially the Boston Red Sox in MLB and in general all of Mexican baseball. This profession has given me the opportunity to cover major events such as the Caribbean Series, LMB All Star, LMP (uninterrupted since 2009), signings of important players. I had the chance to attend the 2013 World Classic in Arizona, USA, albeit as a fan. Apart from this beautiful sport, I love basketball, where I have also narrated games and even an NBA friendly 10 years ago, but I carry baseball in my veins. Bachelor of Communication Sciences from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (UAS) , from which I graduated in 2011. I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and a reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I came to El Debate as a journalist reporter and it was almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to the radio providing my services at Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and after a few days, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. That is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
