Scherzer was making his fifth start since recovering from an injury that sidelined him for a month and a half. To be able to shut down the AL MVP favorite is impressive to say the least, and is a testament to how special Scherzer has been.

Scherzer was able to get six ‘whiffs’ from Aaron Judge on sliders alone. A truly impressive performance.

The All-Star Game MVP surely provides plenty of value in the outfield given his power numbers. One downfall may be his strikeout numbers, but the home runs certainly outweigh the strikeouts.
