Max Scherzer will start on Opening Day against the Marlins. Scherzer will make his seventh-career Opening Day start on Thursday afternoon opposing reigning NL Cy Young Award winner Sandy Alcantara in Miami. The 38-year-old veteran righty was unable to take the ball last year for the Mets due to injury. This certainly looks like the matchup of the day from a starting pitching standpoint.
