A few days late, Scherzer will face Phillies in season debut

Had the bottom knuckle on his right ring finger not succumbed to stress late last season, Scherzer probably would have started on Opening Day.

Glavis made noise again in the ninth when he blasted a two-run home run to right field that left the Nationals' with a slim 7-6 advantage and no outs in the ninth. What happened from there was ugly. Never a strikeout artist, his calling cards were decent control and durability - he's pitched at least 200 innings in a season five times in his 12-year big-league career, posting a 4.37 ERA, 5.3 K/9 and 2.6 BB/9 over almost 1,800 Major League frames.

Mets righty Zack Wheeler is set to start a series opener against Miami, his first big league appearance since September 25, 2014. I had no command of my fastball at all.

MARLINS 7, METS 2: Zack Wheeler lasted just four innings in his return from Tommy John surgery, giving up Derek Dietrich's go-ahead, two-run triple and Christian Yelich's two-run homer in New York's loss at home. Harper and Jayson Werth lead the way with a.636 and.286 average respectively, plus two HR each against Nola.

REDS 2, CARDINALS 0: Amir Garrett pitched two-hit ball for six innings to win his major league debut, a sharp start for the former St. John's basketball player as Cincinnati won at St. Louis. "We thought maybe that was it but other than that your guess is as good as mine". "Our 2016 season in many ways was very positive". Always had men on base. He didn't even make it out of the 1st inning. Rupp is 2 for 11 with five K's. The right-hander went 11-7 with a 3.06 ERA previous year, helping Detroit contend for a postseason spot until its final game. "I think during the course of the season it's going to come".

The bulk of the 46,000-plus contingent was gone by the time Stassi came on as a pinch-hitter to start the bottom of the seventh inning, however, since the Washington Nationals scored seven straight out of the gate and were still ahead by six runs at that time.

Herrera had two more hits Friday off Max Scherzer, the reigning Cy Young victor who Herrera continues to have success against (see story). It will have meant that enough one-year contracts will have been flipped - Clay Buchholz, Howie Kendrick, Michael Saunders, to suggest three - payroll will have been saved and the Phils will have moved into a position to spend.

Baker told reporters earlier this week that Guthrie earned a spot in the organization, though he wasn't with the Nationals for the season opener.

Signed as a free agent in early February, Guthrie, who turns 38 today, hadn't pitched in the majors since 2015 with the Kansas City Royals when he inked a minor league deal with the Nationals.

He's, at times in his career, been a serviceable fourth starter who limits walks.

"Any time a major-league hitter is not getting hits, you are just a hair off", Joseph said. Everything flips. The Nationals, in the playoffs twice since last the Phillies were in the postseason yet still without a series victory, will not be held together forever. Now, while the Nationals will probably temper their expectations to meet Guthrie's limited spring workload, they can not afford a short start.

Let's hope they don't blow it. Both impressed Friday with the Phillies trailing by multiple runs.

After issuing a one-out walk to the second batter of the game, Velasquez fell behind Bryce Harper 3-1.

Harper loves himself some Citizens Bank Park.
