Scherzer follows creative pattern between starts

DETROIT -- Max Scherzer is known for keeping up a pretty strenuous workout routine between starts. He's pretty good at fighting off the monotony, too.

A day after Scherzer delivered six innings of one-run ball to improve to 10-0 on the season, he was on the field at Comerica Park playing catch early Tuesday afternoon, well before batting practice. Instead of simply tossing the ball around with strength and conditioning coach Javair Gillett, however, he was running wide receiver patterns and getting in some agility work.

Later, he was long-tossing from various points around the left-field and third-base stands, running the steps in between.

Scherzer said he has done the patterns for a while. He has always liked running the ballpark steps for stair work, but throwing in-between allows him to do two activities at once.
