It’s all about Bryce Harper returning to his MVP form for the Nats this April. He’s hitting .400 with seven homers so far. But remember he had a hot start last season before fizzling out down the stretch.
His star presence in the middle of the lineup is a lot like what Yoenis Cespedes gave the Mets in 2015, when David Murphy was hit sidekick.
Scherzer will get the nod, which explains why Washington goes off as a big road favorite against a Mets team that has dropped a couple in a row.
He hasn’t let a Spring Training injury affect him at all in April. He’s doing his usual thing, a 1.37 ERA through three starts.
New York Mets
Opposing Scherzer will be Zack Wheeler. The fabled prospect is finally healthy and in the starting rotation at the beginning of a season. We’ll see if he lasts.
Wheeler’s ERA has come down in the two starts since he got hit a little bit in his season debut.
He gave up five runs in four innings in that first start but just one run in five the last time out has the ERA back down in the 5’s.
The WHIP tells a different story – a hit an inning with four walks in three starts equals 1.23 baserunners per inning.
