Leyland: Scherzer's slider needs some work
ARLINGTON -- Manager Jim Leyland said after Monday's game that the Tigers need to figure out what is going on with starter Max Scherzer's slider. He has struggled with the pitch of late.

Leyland said it's a matter of going to the video. He said pitching coach Rick Knapp and Scherzer will review it, and in this instance, Leyland will, too, even though he doesn't usually watch much video.

"You look at one that's good and one that's not so good," Leyland said, "and you try to find that difference."

Scherzer was upset with his outing Monday, even though he picked up his seventh victory of the season. Scherzer, who started the season 6-0, felt he left too many fastballs in the strike zone.
