American League Picks Max Scherzer For All-Star Start

Posted By Blake Bass On July 15, 2013 @ 2:51 PM In MLB | No Comments

[1]As expected the American League announced that Tigers right-hander Max Scherzer will start the All-Star game tomorrow night, matching up against Mets right-hander Matt Harvey.

Scherzer’s winning streak came to an end in his final first-half start, but he’s 13-1 with a 3.19 ERA and 152/31 K/BB ratio in 130 innings. If not for the impressive win total (and Jim Leyland doing the choosing) it’s possible that Scherzer would not have gotten the assignment, as he ranks ninth in the AL in ERA. Of course, regardless of how you feel about evaluating pitchers on win-loss records he’s been really, really good for the Tigers.
