Nats' Max Scherzer to face Astros in exhibition opener

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) The World Series rematch between the Washington Nationals and Houston Astros, who've been embroiled in the fallout from a sign-stealing scandal, that will open the teams' exhibition schedule Saturday just got a little more interesting: Max Scherzer will be on the mound.

After his initial batting practice of spring training Wednesday, Scherzer said he's "right on target" and "threw just enough pitches -- just right -- to be able to get back out here in a couple days when the games start up."

When Washington manager Dave Martinez was told that his three-time Cy Young Award winner made clear to reporters he would be starting against Houston, the skipper joked: "Of course. He's doing my job."
