FIND A STATION Dan Patrick Show
Friday: Brian Kelly

Detroit Tigers pticher Max Scherzer joined the show to talk about his 10-o start and more.

Scherzer explained how he has taken a jump from a hard pitcher to a complete pitcher.

“A big thing last year was to develop my slider to the point where it was more consistent,” Scherzer said. “That gave me three pitches to really work with. …. One thing I did notice is that a lot of lefthanded hitters were hitting me hard. I didn’t have a good third pitch for them. Last year I developed a curveball [for lefties]. When you have three pitches, that’s when pitching is fun.”

Interestingly, Scherzer said the radar gun has only gotten up to 99 that he’s seen, but he only uses it to differentiate speed between his fastball and breaking pitches.

Scherzer said the one hitter who gives him the most problems is Sin-Soo Choo. “That was my favorite thing of the offseason when he got traded to the Reds,” Scherzer said. “He looks very good in a Cincinnati uniform.”

Scherzer also said that the starting pitchers do sneak into the clubhouse and get updates on the NBA games to tell their teammates.
