Max Scherzer made an impressive rookie debut last season, striking out 7 and pitching 4 1/3 perfect innings on April 29. That audtion landed him a spot in the Arizona Diamondbacks starting rotation.
He didn’t fare quite as well in his first start, and he bounced between the rotation, bullpen and the minors last year. Scherzer opened the 2009 season on the disabled list with shoulder stiffness, but he is expected to be the D-backs’ fifth starter.
I got this card signed through the mail this spring. So far, I’ve gotten 27 of 66 cards back signed.
