Nationals ace Max Scherzer is set to start against Colorado today after recovering from inflammation under his right shoulder.
The 34-year-old right-hander threw a bullpen Monday and felt ready to go.
An All-Star for the seventh straight season, Scherzer is 9-5 with a 2.30 ERA but has not pitched since July 6.
He was 7-0 with a 0.87 ERA in his last seven starts.
