Scherzer is not a regular crossword solver, but bullpen coach Mick Billmeyer spotted it.
"As soon I got here, he goes, 'You made it,'" Scherzer said.
The three-letter answer was supposed to be "ARM." Scherzer, however, had a little fun with it.
"If they did their homework, the answer should be DIC for eye color," Scherzer tweeted with a picture of the puzzle.
DIC is the abbreviation listed on Scherzer's driver's license for his eyes -- one brown, the other blue.
