Scherzer returns to Nats rotation for finale in Pittsburgh

Right-hander Max Scherzer hasn't been available much to help the past several weeks as the Washington Nationals have remained squarely in the hunt for a playoff spot.

That could change as early as Thursday, when he is expected to start in the finale of a four-game series against the Pirates in Pittsburgh.

Scherzer (9-5, 2.41 ERA) has dealt with back and shoulder injuries, leading to two stretches on the injured list, and has started just once since July 6 -- with no appearances since July 25.
