Earlier today, Ken Rosenthal reported that a deal involving Max Scherzer being traded to the Padres had nearly been completed.
That seems like it is not the case. Jon Heyman reveals that there is a mystery team in on the Scherzer sweepstakes, which are not yet completed. He then ends the mystery by stating that that team is the Angels.
Scherzer is a free agent after the season. Coming into today, Scherzer carried a 2.83 ERA in 105 innings with a 0.89 WHIP and a 12.2 K/9. He started today and beat the Phillies with six strong innings.
