(AP) Max Scherzer finally lost Saturday night in his final start before the All-Star break, but that rough outing did little to detract from what the Detroit right-hander has accomplished over the last year.


On a staff that includes former MVP Justin Verlander, Scherzer has earned the most attention lately. At 28, he's in the prime of his career, and whether he starts Tuesday's All-Star game or not, he's a big reason why the Tigers are again leading the AL Central.


Since the All-Star break in 2012, Scherzer is 21-3 with a 2.99 ERA in 34 starts. His 13-1 mark this year helped him emerge as perhaps the favorite to start the All-Star game at Citi Field in New York.
