Max Scherzer (back) back on mound Thursday for Nationals
Washington Nationals pitcher Max Scherzer is starting in Thursday's series finale versus left-hander Steven Brault and the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Scherzer will be limited to around 75-80 pitches in just his second start since the All-Star break due to lingering upper back problems. He owns a 2.41 ERA and 0.99 WHIP with 189 strikeouts and 25 walks over 134 1/3 innings (20 starts) this season.
numberFire's models expect Scherzer to score 32.0 FanDuel points on Thursday. He's priced at $12,000.
