Max Scherzer going on Tigers' paternity list, expected to make Saturday start

The Washington Nationals are placing starting pitcher Max Scherzer on the paternity list.

What It Means:

Scherzer is tending to the birth of his child, but he's expected to return for his next scheduled start on Saturday. The Nationals recalled infielder/outfielder Adrian Sanchez from Double-A Harrisburg in a corresponding roster move.

Turning 35 later this month, the veteran right-hander owns a 2.43 ERA and 1.00 WHIP with 170 strikeouts and 22 walks over 122 1/3 innings this season. He's 8-5 in 18 starts.
