MLB Handicapping: Tigers try to pinpoint Scherzer's problems

05.04.2012     07:16 AM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Trying to get a beat on Detroit Max Scherzer is extremely difficult. When he's on, he performs like a front-of-the-rotation arm and when he's not, he looks like Rick Porcello on a bad day. Mechanical flaws seem to be Scherzer's biggest enemy and after five starts and a 7.77 ERA, the Tigers have apparently caught what he is doing wrong. We recommend a wait-and-see approach. Scherzer is slated to throw at home on Saturday against the White Sox.


Scherzer and Tigers pitching coach Jeff Jones believe they’ve found a flaw in the righty’s mechanics, the Detroit Free Press reports. “We’re trying to get him to keep his hands more in the middle of his body as opposed to taking them behind him,” Jones said. “He’s gotten into a little bit of a habit of carrying them behind his body too far. That affects his lead arm getting on the target and staying there long enough.”
