Major League Baseball is doing its best to overshadow the NBA Draft.
On Thursday, it was reported that the Los Angeles Dodgers were trading for ight-hander Max Scherzer and star shortstop Trea Turner from the Washington Nationals.
Scherzer, 37, is 8-4 with a 2.76 ERA in 19 starts this season. The three-time Cy Young Award winner is scheduled to become a free agent after 2021. He is 92-47 with a 2.80 ERA with the franchise and was 3-0 in six starts during the 2019 postseason to help the Nationals win their first World Series championship.
Turner, an All-Star this season, is batting .322 with 18 home runs and 49 RBIs. Now in his seventh season, the 28-year-old is a career .300 hitter.
