The Dodgers are finalizing a deal that would send Max Scherzer and Trea Turner to Los Angeles according Jeff Passan and Ken Rosenthal:
The Dodgers are finalizing a deal to acquire star right-hander Max Scherzer and star shortstop Trea Turner from the Washington Nationals for a massive prospect haul, sources tell Ken Rosenthal. The Nationals receive catcher Keibert Ruiz, starter Josiah Grah, RHP Gerardo Carillo and outfielder Donovan Casey.
Scherzer is hours removed from making what appears to have been a final start for the Nationals. He was scratched from an outing last Saturday due to right triceps discomfort, but did manage to throw a bullpen session on Monday. Scherzer then was back on the mound Thursday in the first game of a doubleheader against the Philadelphia Phillies. He allowed just one run over six innings and improved to 8-4 with a 2.76 ERA, 3.46 FIP and 0.89 WHIP in 19 starts.
