It’s not yet known whether Scherzer will accept the offer. Remember, he limited his trade destinations ahead of the in-season deadline to California-based teams before he was dealt from Washington to the Dodgers.
If Scherzer were to sign this deal, it would give the Mets two legitimate aces to go with Jacob deGrom. Throughout his 14-year MLB career, Scherzer has posted a 190-97 record with a 3.16 ERA and 1.08 WHIP. He’s also striking out much more than a batter per inning while having earned three Cy Young awards.
With Scherzer being 37, it’s not known how a contract offer would be formatted. However, we’re still likely looking at a multi-year deal.
