Rotowire yesterday:

IL stint expected to be minimal
June 15, 2021
Manager Davey Martinez indicated Tuesday that Scherzer's placement on the injured list was primarily a precautionary decision and that the right-hander is not expected to be on the IL long past the minimum 10 days, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Scherzer was placed on the 10-day injured list earlier Tuesday due to a groin injury suffered in his start against the Giants on Friday. The ace right-hander said he'll be ready to pitch again within a matter of "days, not weeks," but the club decided to play it safe by moving him to the IL. Martinez said the injury is "getting better" and that the club doesn't want to make the issue worse by putting him back on the mound too quickly. Scherzer is eligible to be reinstated June 22, so assuming no setbacks, he figures to rejoin the rotation sometime soon after.

Max says mild groin strain.  Nats sure hope so.

Exits Friday start
June 11, 2021
Scherzer exited his start Friday against the Giants after just 12 pitches due to an undisclosed lower-body injury, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
ANALYSIS
The right-hander exited after he was payed a visited by trainers and manager Davey Martinez. It's not clear what the 36-year-old is dealing with at this point, though the injury appeared to be to some part of Scherzer's lower half.

Here's a surprise.

Joel Sherman in the Post today, looking at the 23 contracts to date that have exceeded $200 million...

4.The mega-deals for pitching aged better than those for hitting. Gerrit Cole still has seven-plus years left and, so far, so great. Clayton Kershaw’s seven-year, $215 million Dodgers deal included four top-five NL Cy Young finishes in five years before he opted out. Max Scherzer’s seven-year, $210 million pact with Washington concludes this season and is in the conversation for the best contract ever (five top-five Cy finishes, two wins and a championship). Zack Greinke’s six-year, $206.5 million pact was traded by Arizona to Houston, but he has been a durable, excellent pitcher throughout.

Am I reading this right?

In today's matchup in the Bronx between Max Scherzer and Cory Kluber, "tickets as low as $16."

Duel with DeGrom today.  And as has been the case in ST, DeGrom was awesome.

Wind blowing out to right 11 mph - Conforto took Scherzer deep to center in the 4th, Lindor deep to right in the 5th.

20-3 K/BB ratio for Scherzer in 13+ ST innings, albeit with a high-3 ERA.

Still not getting tremendous love in experts auctions - only 26 last night, putting him behind DeGrom 40, Bauer, Kershaw and Darvish 27, and tied with Buehler, Nola, and Flaherty.

I like the thinking. I'd ignore Corbin though since velo is still down this spring. Not sure what to think of that.
