The five seasons that Scherzer has spent in Washington have been absolutely incredible with two of them being Cy Young Award winning and a fifth place and second place finish.
Scherzer had already won a Cy Young as a member of the Detroit Tigers and in his first year in Washington, he finished fifth in voting while leading the National League in SO/BB. In 2016, Scherzer would become one of the few hurlers to win a Cy Young in both leagues as he would win 20 Games while leading the NL in WHIP and SO/BB. 2017 would see him repeat his Cy Young win and he would become the tenth player in Major League history to win three Cy Youngs. In 2018 he was the runner-up for the Cy Young while finsihing first in Wins and he has been the Strikeouts leader three years straight from 2016 to 2019. Finishing in third place in Cy Young voting in 2019, Scherzer would anchor the Nationals to an improbable run in the Playoffs, and helped the organization win their first World Series.
Entering his sixth season as a National, he is on a rapid pace to become the best Pitcher in franchise history.
