Three-time Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer will be the Nats starting pitcher for Tuesday night’s win-or-go-home game against either the Milwaukee Brewers or St. Louis Cardinals.
Any of the three clubs could host the contest, depending how the rest of the regular season goes.
Washington manager Dave Martinez said that the right-handed Stephen Strasburg and lefty starter Patrick Corbin will be on the wild-card roster and be available to pitch in relief.
“I talked to both of them,” Martinez said. “They’ll both be out of the ‘pen that day. So all hands will be on deck.”
