Analysis: A stress fracture in the knuckle of the ring finger on his pitching hand slowed Scherzer's development this spring and caused him to grip his fastball with the middle three fingers on to instead of the usual index and middle fingers as a means to avoid pain. Scherzer will make two more starts before the regular season begins, but the NL Cy Young award winner won't be the opening day starter. "Right now we've kind of got Max slated as the No. 3 starter," Dusty Baker said.
